Cam Jordan Ruthlessly Turned A Question About Ben Roethlisberger Into A Disrespectful Debate About The Top QB's Of His Era
At the risk of being blasphemous, I disagree with Cam Jordan. I don't want that fact to be lost in the following. By no stretch of the imagination do I love Ben Roethlisberger, but to rank him behind self-sacking Eli Manning career-wise is so, so wrong that it almost has to be intentionally insulting.
Which is really the point here. Due mostly to the fact that they been so consistently successful in ending it, the Saints absolutely cannot stop starting shit. I was absolutely howling during the entirety of that interview, because saying Big Ben is a future Hall Of Famer is an absolute nothing comment. It's not even an opinion. At this point, it's far beyond fact, and yet the leader of a defense that's proving itself dominant scoffed at it so damn hard that it turned a fairly simple question into a full blown, First Take-esque debate. A professional antagonist like Skip Bayless would be proud of how quickly Cam Jordan got a group of beat reporters to appraise something he basically just threw out there for shock value, and that's saying something given the harmlessness of the original question.
The Saints are officially going out of their way to stir some shit in the process of cooking opponents, and I can't help but love what it says about the confidence of an undaunted defense ahead of one of their biggest tests of the season. The Steelers can pin that one up free of charge, but - if his disrespectful disclosure is any indication - it's going to take a lot more than a bulletin board to stop Cam Jordan from getting to a quarterback that's probably already drawing up a list of teammates to blame for his shortcomings come Sunday.
