Spring has decreed that we must giveth out a game ball for most excellent performanceth, and verily we gave it to Roddy White. All hail Roddy White!

You'd be hard-pressed to find a more dominant performance, and I include Titans hero Kenny Britt in that assessment. Roddy regularly beat Leon Hall and double teams on Sunday en route to 11 catches, 201 yards and two touchdowns. He made big catches in the first quarter (46 yard strike from Matt Ryan), the second quarter (43 yard touchdown bomb), and fourth quarter (11 yard touchdown catch). The third quarter was miserable and we're not going to talk about it.

In the process, White gained a growing national audience for his excellent play. At this point, he's a top five wide receiver in the NFL and well on his way to smashing every significant wide receiver record the Atlanta Falcons can offer up. To put it plainly, he's dominating.

That's why Roddy gets the Sprint Game Ball of the Week.
