Falcons Quote of the Day: NFL Network's TOP 100

Fact: Duece likes when Roddy gives him hugs

Yuck. NFL Network released their TOP 100 NFLers list yesterday. And in this blogger's humble but accurate opinion, they underrated the you-know-what out of Roddy White.

Falcons wide receiver Roddy White dropped 41 spots on "NFL Network’s The Top 100: Players of 2012" show on Wednesday.

After leading the league with 115 catches after the 2011 season, he was ranked 24th. He caught 100 passes for 1,296 yards and eight touchdowns last season, but also led the league in drops with 15.

"Probably the dropped passes; I led the league in drops, which is unacceptable," White said. "I have to go out there and I have to play better, I have to hold onto the ball. But other than that, I feel like I performed well, I felt like I did pretty well this season."

Yes he dropped 15 passes. But statistically speaking, he was the closest thing to Wes Welker last year. First down after first down, the man was clutch. If anything, this will motivate Roddy. He's a competitive dude; that is obvious. He went from underrated prep star to small school gem to elite NFLer. He's upwardly mobile, and this kind of indirect criticism won't sit well. Fuel for the fire.

I love the fact that he appreciates what JJ11 brings to the table. I love the fact that Roddy considers his dropsies unacceptable. I love the fact that NFL network underrated him.
