FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Almost to a man, the Atlanta Falcons insist they don't care who they play in the next round of the playoffs.

Leave it to Roddy White to say what most of them are probably thinking.

The outspoken Pro Bowl receiver made it clear Friday that he would like to get the Seahawks next weekend -- not surprising, given Seattle (7-9) is the first losing team to win its division. White says "you really don't want to play a really consistent quarterback," adding, "does that answer your question?"

That would rule out Green Bay, which has Aaron Rodgers, and defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans, led by Pro Bowler Drew Brees. The Seahawks' QB is Matt Hasselbeck, who has thrown 17 interceptions, just 12 touchdowns and might be on the way out in Seattle.
