As much as I feel bad for the guy that opened up training camp with a 5 interception performance that forced his team to dumb down their playbook before they even managed to work their way onto page two, Cam Jordan isn't wrong. I'm not sure a comparison was necessary to highlight something as obvious as the fact that going against Drew Brees everyday is a huge challenge that can only benefit a defense. However, if you're going to take unprovoked shots at someone then it might as well be a guy who certainly has more to worry about than the opinion of a defensive lineman on a non-conference opponent. I haven't been paying all that much attention to Jaguars' camp, but I would imagine that Blake Bortles is pretty numb to the pain of his reality by now. Personally, I pity him enough to lay off, but if Cam Jordan felt he needed to throw an unsolicited jab to solidify his point then why not target the league's proverbial punching bag? Seems unnecessary to me, but as long as it was meant to compliment a performance on the particular side of the ball that gives New Orleans' fans nightmares then it's fine by me.
The fact of the matter is that the Saints defense - on all levels - pressured, frustrated, and picked off a future 'Hall Of Famer' damn near all day today, and they did so without the help of two of their top three corners. They'll be able to sleep well tonight knowing it wasn't a product of facing a quarterback that has a history of turning footwear into a turnover hazard...
