Four Atlanta Falcons who have to produce in 2015

The Atlanta Falcons have a roster full of talent. It just so happens that a lot of it plays offense. Julio Jones is arguably the best receiver in the league. Roddy White isn’t too shabby himself. He may be aging but he’s still a savvy vet who’s reliable. Jake Matthews is a young talent who could have a career year and lead the offensive line to success. Matt Ryan is a proven...

Brian Finneran bet Roddy White he wouldn't last a decade in the NFL

We've all heard of a friendly wager before, but the bet that former Atlanta Falcon Brian Finneran made with Roddy White was far more than that. As Andrew Hirsh of AtlantaFalcons.com reports, Finneran once bet White that he wouldn't last a decade in the league. The reason Finneran offered up the bet though, wasn't to take a shot at the young receiver, but instead was a way to motivate...

Are the Patriots treated differently than other teams?

Here is a touchy subject around the league but one that needs to be said. The New England Patriots are treated differently than other teams around the NFL. The Atlanta Falcons have a rogue employee, with the unlikely name of Roddy White, crank up sound in the Georgia Dome. There is no evidence of anyone else being involved, certainly not a marquee player like Matt Ryan. The team looses...

Will Julio Jones’ new contract signal an end to Roddy Whites’ career?

Julio Jones is not hurting the team by being a great player. Jones’ abilities deserve a hundred million dollar contract. However, just for a minute consider another team that had this problem before. The Detroit Lions had to pay Calvin Johnson nine figures, but this left him as a one-man band in the wide receiver department. (This has lately been remedied pretty good at wide receiver...
