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 at his team’s opponent for this Sunday, the New Orleans Saints.
White, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he despises the New Orleans Saints.
“I don’t like nothing about the Saints,” White said. “The colors. The city. Nothing. But they’ve got some good food, though. Other than the food, nothing.”
Even if the Falcons do not go undefeated, White believes the entire season could be made if the Falcons can knock off the Saints.
“This would make their whole entire month of November if they can mess up our record,” White said. “We know that. You don’t have to get people up for this game in the locker room. We all know what this game is about. We all know that we have to go out there and get after it.”
It is understandable why White hates the Saints so much, since New Orleans has beat Atlanta 8 out of the last 10 times the two have played.
While the Falcons can still win the NFC South without beating the Saints, I am sure it would be even sweeter if they swept the Saints in the process.

BEST OF MAXIM
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.”
White says the Falcons know...
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 a big mouth as part of the Atlanta Falcons’ offense. At times, he can get quite offensive himself, in more his words than his actions, but White has not learned when to stop talking.
If he is seeking advice, now may be a good time.
White often takes his trash talking to Twitter. In fact, I am actually a fan, as he has given me plenty to write about through the years...
After Sunday’s loss to the Saints, Falcons wide receiver Roddy White wasn’t ready to give New Orleans credit for beating them.
“We kind of gave it away,” White said, per USA TODAY Sports. “You know, we gave it to ‘em.”
“It’s really frustrating,” he said. “We had every opportunity to win the game and we just didn’t get it done.”

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...
We’ve covered it routinely (here and here for example), the Saints are a fantasy matchup worth stacking up against and this week is no different. Its hard to anticipate top 5 numbers from teammates because there are only so many passing yards to go around but if anyone can do it its Roddy White and Julio Jones...
Roddy White and the Atlanta Falcons came up just short in their bid to stay unbeaten.
Not that White was about to give the rival Saints too much credit after New Orleans pulled out a dramatic 31-27 upset of previously unbeaten Atlanta on Sunday.
''It's not like they came out here and won a game,'' White said. ''I think we kind of gave it to them. .....
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...
For those that are looking at the Atlanta Falcons as a team that is looking too far ahead towards a perfect season, fear not.

Coming into the New Orleans game, the Atlanta Falcons sat at 8-0. Against the Saints, the Falcons came out and did what they needed to do to open the game. On the first drive they went the length of the field and on the strength of a long pass to Roddy White were able to go in for an early TD. On the first defensive series of the game, and the first pass play, Asante Samuel was able...
