    Default Roddy White vs. Steelers DB's

    A nice write up over at Steelers Lounge with some screen shots, video and a stat table..

    Roddy White vs. Steelers Defensive Backs
    Posted on September 13, 2010 by adam

    At first glance, Roddy White’s 13-catch, 111-yard performance on Sunday looks to be a solid day at the office for Atlanta’s best receiver. It was a career-day for him in terms of receptions, but was he really that effective in Atlanta’s passing game?

    The numbers say no, not really.

    Overall, Matt Ryan’s performance under center for the Falcons was quite dismal (though, from what I understand, Jim Mora was loving him quite a bit during the game), and, based on the numbers, was actually at his worst when targeting his No. 1 receiver.

    It’s important to keep in mind that the Steelers appeared to be willing to allow Ryan and White to hook up on as many three-yard routes as they wanted, and then proceed to tackle well and not give up any big plays. Mission accomplished. And while White ended up catching 13 passes, he only averaged eight yards per reception, and was targeted on an incredible 23 of Ryan’s 44 attempts. Only one other Falcons player was thrown to even five times (Tony Gonzalez … who caught two passes). Bottom line: If you target one player 23 times in one game, that player is going to catch a lot of passes regardless of how good or bad the defensive coverage is.

    Here’s the breakdown of Ryan’s attempts, and how he performed when throwing to White and his other targets.

    it seemed like every time Roddy White was being covered by BMac that the Falcons would go in that direction.

    white lines up on that side most times anyways but it doesnt mean that Bmac always takes sole coverage though. Thh Troy pick that is outlined at Steelers Lounge shows how it swas actually Troy in coverage there. I saw troy in coverage against White other times throughout the game as well

    that's because Troy is Da Man!


    POLAMALU'S INTERCEPTION

    First down, 10 yards to go, Falcons' ball on Atlanta's 21 with 1:45 left in the fourth quarter.

    Formation: Shotgun with one back, one tight end and three receivers.

    Play: Gonzalez is tight on the right with Douglas and White flanked outside of him. Brian Finneran is flanked left. All three receivers on the right stream up field. Pittsburgh safety Troy Polamalu ignores Gonzalez and Douglas and jumps White's square out. Fox analyst Jim Mora thought quarterback Matt Ryan stared down White and tipped off Polamalu where he was going to throw.

    Result: Interception, Steelers took possession on the Falcons 30.

    White: "I can't see that guy. He's all the way over in the middle of the field. He's a play-maker. Just when they needed a big play, he came up with it. He does stuffs like that. He aborts what he's supposed to do and just goes to where he thinks the ball is going to go."

    Ryan: "I thought I made a pretty good throw. Against him, you have to be perfect. ... He made a great play."
