ATLANTA - Falcons Pro Bowl receiver Roddy White is eager to see how opponents defend him now that Atlanta has added rookie wideout Julio Jones.
Trying to cover tight end Tony Gonzalez, flanker Harry Douglas and rookie running back Jacquizz Rodgers might wear down Chicago if White matches his single-game career averages and Jones, the NFL's No. 6 overall draft pick, lives up to his potential in Sunday's season opener.
White, who led the league in catches and was second in yards receiving, says the Falcons are confident, but know the Bears "aren't called the Monsters of the Midway for nothing."
Since 2004, Chicago has the NFL's most takeaways (235), including 137 interceptions, and are led by a secondary that includes Chris Harris at strong safety and Charles Tillman at cornerback.
