A couple of years ago, Falcons receiver Roddy White ripped the Saints and New Orleans in a Twitter tirade. He lated apologized, but he hasn’t changed his views.
White told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he still despises the Saints, whom he’ll see on Sunday.
“I don’t like nothing about the Saints,” White said. “The colors. The city. Nothing. But they’ve got some good food, though. Other than the food, nothing.”
With the Falcons at 8-0 and White openly talking about making it 16-0, he thinks the Saints’ whole season could be made on knocking the Falcons off.
“This would make their whole entire month of November if they can mess up our record,” White said. “We know that. You don’t have to get people up for this game in the locker room. We all know what this game is about. We all know that we have to go out there and get after it.”
White’s comments may serve to motivate the Saints to get after it, too.
