Falcons WR Roddy White had the best game of his career today, hauling in 201 yards worth of catches, two touchdowns, and a two-point conversion. He had at least four or five highlight-worthy catches, but this one might’ve been the most amazing. At the beginning of the second quarter, we didn’t yet know we’d entered Madden 11 territory, but this catch signaled these teams were about to make good use of Gus Johnson after all:
White has gotten noticeably better every year of his career. Last year, he confirmed his status as one of the league’s ten best receivers.
So far this year, that’s not quite good enough. Can you name ten players at any position who’ve done more to help their teams win than White has for the Falcons? NOTE: player must have forced a game-saving fumble at some point.
White earned team monthly MVP honors for his work in weeks one through four. He’s the solid favorite to win the second-quarter award, and has to be considered a very strong All-Pro contender going into Atlanta’s bye week.
