Roddy White on ESPN analysts criticizing Aldon Smith: You guys have ‘no doubt’ driven drunk before

Roddy-White-FalconsAtlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was back to sharing his insightful thoughts on Twitter on Sunday, this time just hours before his team’s game against the Miami Dolphins. White, who was apparently watching ESPN as he awaited his teams 4 p.m. EST kickoff time, said that the “Sunday NFL Countdown” analysts should give San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith a break.

The 23-year-old Smith has been in trouble off the field several times since coming into the league, but White felt that Keyshawn Johnson, Cris Carter and Tom Jackson were being hypocritical by criticizing him. Why? White assumes they have all driven drunk before.

Neither Johnson, nor Carter, nor Jackson has ever been arrested for driving while under the influence. Does that mean they have never had a few drinks and gotten behind the wheel? We can’t say, but White’s assertion that they have no right to criticize Smith because they have all probably done the same is ridiculous. The 31-year-old receiver then admitted the league has programs in place to prevent drunk driving.

These certainly aren’t the most idiotic tweets we have ever seen from White, but once again he has managed to make himself look bad by raising a dumb point. Aldon Smith needs to learn to stay out of trouble, or he’ll risk never fulfilling his potential. That’s simply a fact at this point, not an opinion.
