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, you know White had a thing or two to say. And you should also know that White thinks the Falcons can indeed go 16-0.
“I’m hoping so,” White said when asked if the Falcons could go undefeated. “I think we have the pedigree to do it.”
“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 ball and get turnovers. That’s been the key to winning games all over the league this year. If we can continue to do that, we’ll be just fine.”
Probably not what Mike Smith wants White to be saying just eight games into the season. But as we said before, Roddy White rarely holds anything back.
