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?
Roddy White says yes.
“I’m hoping so,” White told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I think we have the pedigree to do it.”
The playmaking receiver points to a tight-knit lockerroom and consistency as reasons as to why it may happen.
“How we are on offense and defense and how we are as a team,” White said. “This locker room is very united right now. Every week, we expect to win. There is not a team that I felt like when we went into a ball game this year that we didn’t feel like we were going to win. I think we can (go undefeated.) We just still have to be consistent, don’t turn over the ba...

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.
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...
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...
What Went Right The defense once again was solid this week. Ware got pressure constantly and made sure to leave Matt Ryan’s face print onto the field before the game was over. Ratliff showed signs of him old self and until his injury, he was walling off the middle to Michael Turner and charging into the pocket consistently. McCray has shown that he may be a legitimate option...
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...

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...
