Supporting the case for Roddy White

By Pat Yasinskas

Just got an e-mail from ESPN Stats & Analysis that adds some credence to selecting Atlanta's Roddy White and Michael Jenkins as the best receiving tandem in the NFC South.

White is at the top of the league when it comes to a crucial receiving category. On third downs where the offense needs seven or more yards, White has come through with more catches than any receiver in the league this season with 12. (We're not going to get into Sunday's fourth-quarter non-catch against Denver right now because that's been addressed already). Baltimore's Derrick Mason and Pittsburgh's Hines Ward have 10 each, and Cincinnati's T.J. Houshmandzadeh has nine.
