Who has a better pair of playmaking wide receivers?

The Atlanta Falcons with Roddy White and Julio Jones or the New York Giants with Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz?

Well, White is biased and the Falcons veteran has come out throwing some barbs in the direction of Cruz during an interview on NFL Network with Michael Irvin.

Victor Cruz is a lot more of a slot receiver; the big boys play on the outside,” White said, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.

Cruz, who had a breakout season a year ago, is off to another fine start as he has 23 receptions for 279 yards and one touchdown. It’s a little tough to evaluate the Giants’ pair because Nicks has been banged up in recent weeks.

“I couldn't care less about what anybody else has to say," Cruz told the Star-Ledger. "I got a ring back at home. I don't care about what Roddy White has to say.”

There is that too. White and the Falcons have been postseason underachievers and Atlanta got drilled at New York in the wild-card round of the playoffs last season.
