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.

Falcons wide receiver Roddy White said he has no love for the team's division rival and the city where it plays, but did compliment New Orleans on its cuisine.
Leading up to tomorrow’s game against the Saints, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has once again made it clear that he doesn’t like them.
“I don’t like nothing about the Saints,” White said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The colors. The city. Nothing. But they’ve got some good food, though. Other than the food, nothing.”

Earlier this week, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White said he believes the team has the pedigree to go undefeated this year. Today, he is talking even more trash. This time, he is taking aim...
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver loves to run off at the mouth, sometimes without an apparent thought to what he’s even saying. His twitter feed @RoddyWhiteTV is pure comedy, and most of the time White’s not trying to be funny. White has started yapping again, and the masses in the Nola are not going to be [...]

Per ESPN SportsCenter’s Twitter Feed, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has publicly stated he thinks the Falcons have what it takes to go 16-0:
Bold comments considering there are only two teams in NFL history that have successfully negotiated an undefeated regular season, the 1972 Miami Dolphins and the 2007 New England Patriots. So much for taking each game one at...
Roddy White thinks the Falcons can go undefeated, but his reasoning behind that belief isn’t so perfect.
The Falcons wide receiver is pointing to the team’s “pedigree” as a reason why they can go 16-0, along with the united nature of the team’s locker room. It might not be the wisest thing to tempt the football gods before a big divisional matchup, but that’s exactly...
Roddy White has no problem expressing his feelings. Whether he’s tweeting a defense of Joe Paterno or dismissively laughing at Michael Irvin questioning if he and Julio Jones are a better duo that Mile Austin and Dez Bryant, White rarely holds anything back.
So when the subject of the Atlanta Falcons possibly going 16-0 came up in a discussion with D. Orlando Ledbetter of the AJC...
On the strength of MVP candidate Matt Ryan and a defense that bends but rarely breaks, the Falcons currently stand as the league's only undefeated team.
At 8-0, Atlanta will put their streak to the test against the division-rival and suddenly resurgent Saints on Sunday. If they do get their ninth victory, could the Falcons run the table all the way to 16-0?
We all know how skewed scouting reports can be based on race — and lots of players have pointed out that it’s not just on-air experts who follow a pattern when talking about athletes but that it’s actuallydone in team reports as well. I’ve always looked at it from the perspective that black players aren’t given enough credit for being intelligent…that there’s over-emphasis...
Within two days of one another the Atlanta Falcons brought in Mike Nolan to run the defense and Dirk Koetter on the offensive side. I set out to write an article on the top 10 impact players new to their respective teams this season; either via trade, free agency, or the draft. The process got old, quickly, though. The truth is, there have been many… but, my telling you that...
