Roddy White's back, Tevin Coleman's getting up to speed

In very positive news, the only player held out of today's practice was Justin Durant. Roddy White returned to practice today after being excused yesterday to attend to a personal matter. White confirmed today that his mother had surgery, which went well, and that he needed to take yesterday to be with her in the hospital. The drama about White's statements earlier in the week about preferring catching the ball to blocking was a hot topic in the locker room today. White said the controversy is not really a controversy. "My role is what it is. I've talked to DQ, and we've gotten past that,"...

Roddy White's winter of discontent is still pretty balmy

The legendary Falcons receiver may be heading for his quietest year in recent memory, and he's not overly happy about that. That's not really a concern for the Falcons just yet. Roddy White has been many things in his tenure as an Atlanta Falcon, but it has been a very long time since "productive wide receiver" wasn't an accurate description. Welcome to 2015. We are entering the twilight years of Roddy's career, in all likelihood, which is difficult for any of us to fathom. He's been such a fixture in this offense since 2007, he owns every major receiving record for the franchise, and his...

Pre-Game Recon (Texans v. Falcons): Julio Jones Cannot Be Stopped

Dave Choate from our sister site, The Falcoholic, was kind enough to answer all of our burning questions on his beloved Falcons in advance of this weekend's quadrennial Southern showdown. 1) I won't bother asking a question like, "How do you stop Julio Jones?" because we both know that isn't going to happen, so instead I'll just ask how does it feel to get to watch this ridiculousness every single week? It's glorious, and you're always afraid it'll end. We just haven't seen sheer dominance like this from the wide receiver position in Atlanta, even when Roddy White was in his prime and...

Report: Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White isn't bothered by statistically insignificant game against NY Giants

Fact: Roddy White does an excellent moose impression Fantasy football doesn't have any real world significance. That said, Roddy's zero catch Sunday probably surprised a few fantasy football nerds. Seeing zero in the points column next to his name is unexpected to say the least. When Roddy plays, he's normally involved in the game. He may have lost a step or two, but his ability to gain separation over the middle or convert third downs is second to few. That's why it's easy to assume he was somehow negated by the Giants secondary. Per Vaughn McClure, Roddy isn't worried about it. In his...

Prince Amukamara, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie look to put clamp on Falcons' Julio Jones, Roddy White

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie probably won't know which of Atlanta's dangerous wide receivers he'll be covering until he's actually on the field and Prince Amukamara tells him.
