4) Get Roddy White involved

Roddy White is upset, and rightfully so. The Falcons’ franchise leader in yards and touchdowns has six receptions all year long. Julio Jones has had six or more receptions in three out of the Falcons’ four games. White made this public in a comment to the media this week, so something’s got to give.
Matt Ryan believes that White will make a lot of big plays in 2015 for the team. Why wouldn’t Ryan think this? White has made big plays for the Falcons numerous times. Think back to all of the game winning touchdowns White has grabbed from Ryan over the years.
If the Falcons are able to get White involved more in the offense against Washington good things will happen. A good game from White will open up Julio Jones and Leonard Hankerson as well as Devonta Freeman. When the Falcons’ offense is clicking, it’s nearly impossible to stop. Let’s see White take out his frustration on the Redskins.
