Atlanta receiver Roddy White's tweets on Wednesday about perceived weaknesses in the Broncos' defense entering the teams' game on Monday weren't greeted with scorn from Denver's defenders, whose reactions were more casual, ranging from laughter to shrugs.
"Roddy's a character -- he's all right," said DT Kevin Vickerson. "You don't pay that any attention."
LB Wesley Woodyard, one of the Broncos' more prolific tweeters, smiled when the subject was brought up. But he acknowledged he would never tweet something that could wind up on an opponent's wall.
"Most definitely I wouldn't -- you don't want to give any other teams ammunition before the game, billboard material," Woodyard said.
Did White's words end up on a bulletin board -- or as the focus of a discussion during defensive meetings Thursday?
The Broncos played it coy when that thought was broached.
"No comment on that," Woodyard said, smiling. "We knew about that, but we're more focused with what we have to do on defense."
And if it takes a tweet to light a fire?
"Then we're in the wrong business," Woodyard said.
