WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- Cam Jordan is bitter after last season’s playoff loss to Seattle. But that, he says, isn’t what drives him.

No, what drives the Saints defensive lineman is his selfless desire to be the best.

“I just don’t want to get better for myself, I want to get better for my teammates,” he said.

Jordan insists, despite his career year that included 12 sacks and his first trip to the Pro-Bowl, he’s not the face of the Saints defensive line – yet. First, he says he needs another season like his last.

“It’s one thing to have a good year like I did last year, but it has to be better this year,” he said.

“Everything that I do has to be better. Everything the team does has to be better because clearly it wasn’t good enough to get to the Super Bowl, and that’s what our goal is.”

Mediocrity doesn’t sit well with Jordan. In fact, he detests it, and it’s why at Thursday’s practice he felt a responsibility to “set the tone early on.”

“It has to start with us,” he said. “It’s one thing for a coach to say we have to be nasty, but it’s another thing for the players to come in and say, ‘We’re going to set the tone today.’”

And boy did they ever.

He and Kenny are so much fun to just watch out there. Kenny getting people hyped and Cam loosening people up. But when the pads are on, both are out to hit.

Thanks for all the updates zachsaints. Sometimes it's hard to believe the stuff the "press" writes.
