Roddy White and Julio Jones are the best wide receiver combo in the league (yes I’ve heard of Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks). Last week the (play) brothers stopped by the Atlanta Falcons D-block show, a web series hosted by the Falcons linebackers. If you haven’t seen the series, make sure you put that on your list. It’s the best sports web series hands down (with Michael Robinson’s Real Rob Report coming in at a close second – I give D Block extra points for the southern accents).
One of the things that White and Jones talked about was finishing plays even when they’re run plays. Both of the guys took pride in having a “linebacker mentality” (Jones said he’s played some linebacker before) and blocking on play.White had a warning for safeties that think they’re going to blow through him and take Michael Turner down.
Jones also talked about the difficulty teams have guarding them because double teaming them just opens up opportunities for the other weapons on their team. The D-block guys seemed impressed with the way Jones talked about coverage on defense. I thought that was funny.

You can also hear them talk about the rumor that White and Jones can kick field goals, Jones feelings about his controversial former coach Nick Saben, and what they think about new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.
