Atlanta Falcons: Mohamed Sanu Goes 1-On-1 With Blogging Dirty
It’s no secret that the Atlanta Falcons’ fan base was upset to see Roddy White leave and some fans might be a little down even with the team signing you to a 5-year deal. I’m sure you’re not going out there trying to replace him in any way but do you feel like you have to live up to anything with the history this team has at the receiver position?
Sanu: I’m just going to be me. I’m not trying to fill anyone’s shoes or replace anyone. Roddy White was a tremendous WR and I loved his game and looked up to him a lot. I’m just going to play my game the way I know how to play and play my role to the best of my abilities. I truly hope the fans grow to love me the way the loved Roddy but I can only control my effort and the way I play.
I thought this was a good way to judge just how great Sanu’s character is. Having a player that is outgoing and brash at times is always good to have, but at the end of the day you want to have someone on your team that is down to Earth and humble and that’s a perfect way to describe Sanu.
Roddy White is the most beloved Falcons’ receiver of all-time and even though Sanu isn’t the same type of receiver that White is, people will compare the two since Sanu is his “replacement.” It isn’t fair to compare the two, but whether we like it or not, the comparisons will come and what he had to say about White says it all. He isn’t out here to steal the spotlight or to take anyones spotlight. He’s here to contribute and make the Falcons a better team and that’s exactly what he’s going to do.
