The Atlanta Falcons swagger captain is hands down, without a doubt veteran receiver Roddy White.

White can thump his chest and talk trash with the best of them. He has every right to, to a certain degree as his team is 12-2. Boom. Right now they are the best in the business with only the AFC’s Houston Texans holding a similar record.

So as is his nature, White is taking it upon himself to tell anybody that wants to write it down why the Falcons are moving beyond being a great regular season foe.

In his latest salvo, White admitted that Atlanta has been prone to being intimidated by other successful football programs.

Falcons a win away from home-field advantage

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. The most quotable member of the Atlanta Falcons was trying not to say anything at all. But he couldn't help himself and failed.

Roddy White says the Falcons use to be afraid to face certain teams

After the Falcons laid the smackdown on the Giants this past Sunday, Roddy White went on his normal Twitter rants about how people need to start giving the Falcons respect.

The Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders are Amongst Tops in the League

The NFL season is slowly coming to a close.  Playoffs should be extremely interesting and no matter what I’m sure we’ll see some great commercials during the Super Bowl.   Speaking of the NFL, I realize that I never share photos of one of the best resources the NFL has to offer:  the cheerleaders.

Saints Nation: Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades vs. Bucs

What a fantastic performance by the Saints defense, led by improbable heroes in backup defensive backs that haven't really gotten much of a chance all season. To hold Doug Martin to 16 yards on 9 carries was worthy of the Baltimore Ravens' defense in their prime. This defense stuffed the run, clogged passing lanes, got pressure with four, and created turnovers. Steve Spagnuolo...

Andrew gives the Saints credit for sticking with him. The Saints upgraded big time at LB in the off season but what do they look...

Samuel, Eagles go in opposite directions

When the Philadelphia Eagles traded Donovan McNabb within their division, they got it right. When the same organization traded cornerback Asante Samuel within the NFC to a team with which they compete for a playoff spot, one cant help but think they got it wrong. Especially considering the meager compensation that the Eagles received reported as a seventh-round draft pick and...

On Monday, former Pro Bowl running back Jamal Anderson pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of reckless driving.

Roddy White Calls Jeff Green “Soft and Terrible” On Twitter
