It seems every season the Falcons are looked at as legitimate Super Bowl contenders, but always come up short of the big game.
Roddy White says no more.
During an appearance on ESPN's "First Take" Wednesday, the outspoken receiver stated that 2013 will be regarded as "Super Bowl or bust" for the team.

The Atlanta Falcons know that the only way they can make believers out of fans is to make noise in the playoffs. A team that traditionally always does well in the regular season, hasn’t always translated to success in the playoff games. While they somewhat broke the mode last season by making a NFC Championship [...]
The Atlanta Falcons were damn close to playing for a Super Bowl this past season. Going into the upcoming season the Falcons will be one of the favorites to be playing on the final Sunday. The team signed running back Steven Jackson from the St. Louis Rams and will have a lot of key players returning. Making the playoffs isn't good enough for this team according to receiver Roddy...

As the draft gets closer we will be going position by position and looking at some potential targets that the Falcons might be looking at in the draft. We will start with the QBs and that probably has you scratching your head. Matt Ryan has been very durable during his NFL career as he's only missed two games. But as it sits right now, the Falcons only have one other quarterback...
The Falcons are bringing back the same backfield they had last season with the exception of trading up by replacing Michael Turner with Steven Jackson. Behind Jackson we have Jacquizz Rodgers, Jason Snelling and Antone Smith. At fullback we have Bradie Ewing and I just don't see us carrying more than one FB on the roster.
There are so many needs on defense and now...
