Roddy White Trashes Atlanta Falcons Coaches For Blowing Super Bowl

Roddy White Former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver felt so bad for the team loses the super bowl

“I probably literally would’ve fought him.”

Former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White retired in 2015 after spending his entire 10-year NFL career with the Falcons, but he is still feeling the pain from Atlanta’s brutal Super Bowl LI loss even though he wasn’t apart of it.

Roddy made an appearance on the “We Never Played The Game” podcast and made it quite clear that he’s placing all of the blame on Atlanta’s coaching staff, specifically offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

In fact, he went as far to say that he probably would’ve fought the guy if he was on the sidelines during the game.

Per Complex:

“I’m glad I wasn’t a part of that team,” he said, “because I probably literally would’ve fought him.”

White, who admitted he lost $40,000 betting on the Falcons to win Super Bowl LI, bashed the rest of the coaching staff as well.

“You destroyed a dream for a city,” he said. “It’s bigger than me. The city of Atlanta needed that championship, and you had it. [Falcons owner] Arthur Blank needed that championship and he deserved to win that game, with everything he’s been through. It was finally our time to win, and it just hurt me that we didn’t get it done.”

“As a coaching staff, you’re on the headset,” he said. “Nobody said, ‘We’re going to run the ball three times.'”
