New team spokesman Roddy White is certainly getting his digs in these days.

Speaking to AOL Fanhouse, the irrepressible Rowdy Roddy said he's noticed how aggressive the Bucs secondary has been. They lead the NFL with 14 interceptions, which might be a cause for alarm for mere mortals. From his thunderthrone high above the newly renamed Roddy White Mountains of New Hampshire, our favorite wide receiver dismissed that out of hand:

"You like those guys, you always get chances to throw the ball over their heads," White said, speaking generally about aggressive defensive backs. "You anticipate."

Does he fear Aqib Talib, who has five interceptions this season? Uh, no. He doesn't fear a team of self-replicating Aqib Talibs, either.

"I'd rather go against Talib anyway than the guy who watches film and is very crafty and knows if the inside receiver goes to the flat, he's going to jump this route," White said.

In Roddy's humble opinion, Matt Ryan can challenge these ballhawking corners—reading in between the lines, by throwing it to Roddy—and utterly annihilate them. If that doesn't work or hell, if it does, White recommends the Falcons dose the Bucs' incredible weak rushing defense with Michael Turner until they explode in a puff of smoke.

Now, I don't know if this is going to get Raheem Morris and the Bucs incredibly riled up. It might. The important thing to note here is that our top wide receiver is that confident in our offense, and in his own abilities. He's so confident it must be contagious, because I find myself trusting those forecasts implicitly.

Oh, Roddy. Never change.
