Roddy White blasts Kyle Shanahan…again
Roddy White did not mince words when talking about his former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan on We Never Played The Game podcast with Jeff Schulz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Zach Klein of WSB TV.
In that interview, White blasted Shanahan for not dialing up three straight runs once the Falcons had the ball first and 10 on the New England 22 with an eight-point lead and less than four minutes in regulation.
“I was like, ‘That’s it. Game’s over. We’re going to have a parade. I’m going to fly back to Georgia. We’re going to have fun,” White said regarding his reaction to the catch from Julio Jones that made a championship seem inevitable.
“I’m glad I wasn’t a part of that team because I probably literally would’ve fought [Shanahan],” White said.
Now, in fairness to Kyle Shanahan, White could be holding old wounds against him—Remember back when he made his views on Shanahan clear after he was released last year. White’s agent even claimed that Shanahan forced the team to choose between player and coordinator. In July, White claimed that Shanahan wasn’t truthful about White’s role during the 2015 offseason, breaking the news that White would be used only after training camp opened.
So it’s no surprise that, of all the people who could be blamed for the collapse, White has opted to blame the team’s now-former offensive coordinator.
“You destroyed a dream for a city,” White said. “It’s bigger than me. The city of Atlanta needed that championship and you had it. 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.”https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/roddy-white-blasts-kyle-shanahan-again/https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Roddy_White_Arrested_Falcons_Tinted_Windows_Gwinnett_County.jpg?fit=640%2C400&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Roddy_White_Arrested_Falcons_Tinted_Windows_Gwinnett_County.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Atlanta FalconsNFC SouthNFC WestNFLRecent PostsSan Francisco 49ersAtlanta Falcons,Kyle Shanahan,NFL,Roddy WhiteRoddy White did not mince words when talking about his former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan on We Never Played The Game podcast with Jeff Schulz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Zach Klein of WSB TV.
