Twisting arms for Roddy White

Every Wednesday, NFC West colleague Mike Sando does a league-wide MVP Watch. Here’s his post from last week, in which Atlanta wide receiver Roddy White didn’t make the list of 10.

While stranded in the Atlanta airport due to lightning Monday morning, I reached out to Sando via e-mail. Mike and I have been friends for a long time and we talk pretty openly. With Mike, I didn’t feel the need to do a lot of fancy lobbying. The e-mail said something like, “Hey, get Roddy White on your MVP Watch this week or I'll start handing out your cell number to Atlanta fans’’.

We’ll see if Sando took the hint when his MVP Watch comes out tomorrow. But my early indications are you probably will see White’s name on the list this week.
