What Roddy Needs To Do

Alot of people have recently been talking about how Roddy White could be the first WR to win MVP. Or he could break a few records this season. Now his current on pace to get 1643 yards for the year 12 TD's and 124 receptions for the year. That is crazy good but unfortunately it doesnt quite break any league records. Not sure about Falcons records.

Roddy is closest to breaking the recieving yards and receptions records while on this pace. However he must step up and play some impressive football in the next 7 weeks if he wants to give Jerry Rice or Marvin Harrison a run for their money.

Ok so for yards Rice has an impressive 1,848 yards for the season. Roddy is on pace to get 1,643 which is 205 yards less. Roddy is currently averaging 103.8 yards per game and he will have to increase that to 130.6 yards per game over the next 7 weeks. This would be crazy for Roddy to hit those numbers as he would either have to grab a few more catches, get alot of long passes or get lucky.... I'm thinking if he breaks the record he will have to get a bit of both. Now just to put it in perspective, if Roddy wanted to hit 2000 yards for the season he would have to average atleast 152.3 yards per game.That would be insane.

Marvin Harrison holds the reception record at 143 which is 19 more receptions than White is currently on pace for. If he grabbed these extra passes while still getting the same average yards he would break 1,900 yards for the year. So chances are he will break the yards record before anything thing else.

Now Brandon Llyod is currently the reciever with the most yards in the league with 968. However he has been targetted 48 times. I doubt he will beable to keep his current 20.2 average yards per reception. I believe if there will be anyone who can break the record for yards it will be Roddy.

Finally, before I let you ponder what Roddy could do I will use a table to demonstrate the challenges that Roddy faces.
