Roddy White isn't used to being an afterthought in the Atlanta offense.
"This is not my forte," he said Wednesday, breaking into that familiar smile. "This is not something I like or desire."
"I can't complain. We're winning," White said. "As long as we keep winning, then everything will be fine, man. Obviously, that's what we're here for. We want to win games and get back to the playoffs."
Coming into the season, there was plenty of speculation that White might have to accept a bit of a lesser role after the Falcons traded up in the draft to nab Alabama star Julio Jones.
While Atlanta is intent on taking advantage of Jones' immense talent, this isn't a case where White's numbers have dropped off because of the rookie.
Rather, the first two opponents, Chicago and Philadelphia, have doubled up on the wideouts and dropped safeties into coverage, intent of preventing the Falcons from hitting the big play.
