    JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Tiger Woods stepped from behind a microphone, thankful to be done with a short interview that felt like an intrusion. He took 23 questions, most of them about his golf, a few others about his left leg, then walked off without looking at anyone.
    “That’s why you guys listen,” he muttered under his breath, “and I play.”

    FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga.  — Roddy White stripped off his pads after practicing for nearly 2 1/2 hours on a balmy Georgia morning, knowing he wouldn’t have to go through that again.

    Not on this day, at least.

    Two-a-days have been tossed aside, joining leather helmets and the Wing-T as NFL relics.

    Good riddance.

    No wonder White was wearing such a big smile as lunchtime approached.
