Roddy White named NFC offensive player of the month

Roddy White has another reason to celebrate as the NFL's offensive player of the month.

Roddy White has another reason to celebrate as the NFC's offensive player of the month.

FLOWERY BRANCH – The awards just keep coming for Falcons wide receiver Roddy White.

He was named NFC offensive player of the month for October.

White is the first receiver to win player of the month honor since  Terrell Owens won the award in November of 2007 when he was with the Dallas Cowboys.

White, a two-time Pro Bowler, finished the month with 29 catches for 489 yards and three touchdowns in four games.  He had over 100 yards receiving in two games and earned player of the week honor after catching 11 passes for a season-high 201 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons 39-32 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

White’s 201-yard total against the Bengals is the second most of his career and the second most in team history, trailing only his club record 210-yard day against the 49ers in 2009.

In 2010, White has caught a league-leading 54 passes. He has 747 yards receiving and five touchdown. White, a first round pick out of UAB in 2005, has produced four 100-plus yard receiving games in 2010, giving him 22 career 100-yard games, which is the most in franchise history. He also ranks fourth in club history with 5,436 career receiving yards and third in receptions with 369.

So glad Roddy won this award. He deserves it!! I’m looking forward to a great game from the Falcons this week. I predict Roddy will be fired up by Raheem Morris’s comment that the Bucs are the “best team in the NFC.” GO FALCONS!!!!!

p.s. — if it’s a big deal to you to be first, follow AJC Falcons on facebook. Both times I’ve been first it’s because I clicked the link to the blog as soon as it appeared on facebook.

A well deserved honor for Roddy, he is having a monster year.

Tampa Bay`s Aqib Talib has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week. Talib had two interceptions Sunday against Arizona, including one that he returned for the first touchdown of his career.

That should be a great matchup watching those two work against each other.

Sorry, research called so I couldn’t patrol the blog. Simply made an observation. It was more so the negative light you shined on our excellent wide receiver’s league wide recognition that irked me. To answer your question, of course I voted! Its my duty as a proud United States Citizen. I’m glad you voted as well! Now, I’ll repeat….GO FALCONS!!! GO RODDY!!!!

Win 6 Super Bowls, then you have done something worth wild. But the Falcons have ZERO Super Bowl wins, so Falcon fans will celebrate anything. You fans are so funny.

Congratulation to Roddy for the recent accolades the NFL showered upon him.

Roddy deserves it. Roddy don’t listen to NFL game analysts foddering over your supremacy play at wideout, recently. What they don’t know about wideout position, showed up in lame inputs. As analysts, they should have reference to your stats for the last 2-3yrs and present stats. For them to scoff at the notion of you being considered a no.1 wideout display their bias ways against you as a receiver. The way you shut-up your critics is to keep performing at a high.

GO RODDY..AS MARIAH CAREY WOULD SAY, SHAKE IT OFF. ALL THE HATERS JUST THEM OFF!!!

Oh Falc Fan, you belittle yourself to equate Joe Tess to a real Tea Partier. You actually belittle yourself belittling the Tea Party. You, sir, appear to be a belittler.

Does Tampa still play the cover 2 zone as their base defense or will let Talib man up on Roddy?

All teams have players that get into trouble off the field. Yes, even your darling Falcons. Remember Vick, Robinson, Babineaux and others. A few years ago fans wanted to get rid of White. It all boils down to being jealous. 6 championships to ZERO. Case closed. Have a good night.

I believe that you are a Falcon fan on the down low. You follow our team waay too much.

Are You? Are you? Are you? If you lie your hair will grow like Troy.

@Steelers fan and @Tea Party Meber
If you do not care about the Falcons why do you even bother to come to the Falcon’s blog. All you do is antagonize people. Do you not have anything better to do? I am just curious! Can you explain it to me?
