Roddy White takes aim at the Saints

Falcons receiver Roddy White took to Twitter on Wednesday regarding Monday night’s game against the Saints. Though it has been rendered largely meaningless by the fact that the Falcons need only to beat the Panthers on January 2 to win the division and lock up home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, White is fired up about the fact that people are “mad for the saints.”

“The grace of god gave them tht championship so that city wouldn fall apart now and now they they hot shit in my chad voice child please,” White said.

“The saints win one championship and want to go crazy well yall ass aint winning this year we gone make sure tht doesn’t happen,” White added.

White apparently realized that he shouldn’t have said what he said. But instead of deleting the tweets, he simply asked the local paper not to talk about them. Later in the day, he asked the folks at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution to give him “a great christmas gift this year and stop posting my tweets.”

Surely, the Falcons can’t be pleased with White’s antics. Not only does it give the Saints added motivation for Monday night, but it could wake up the giant that won Super Bowl XLIV in time for the defending champs to at some point return to the Georgia Dome and knock out the Falcons in the playoffs.

As if the Falcons didn’t have enough to worry about, what with the prospect of Mike Vick returning in the postseason.
