Cam Jordan: Saints are ready to win Super Bowl now

Saints quarterback Drew Brees raised eyebrows when he told PFT Live in March that his team is “very close” to getting back to the Super Bowl. One of his teammates has now taken the next step.

“We’re building a team to win a Super Bowl,” defensive end Cam Jordan tells Greg Bishop of SI.com, who guest-wrote Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback column this week. “We’re not building for the future. It’s hard not to believe in our team. We’re ready to win it now.”

So how much of that is the glass-half-full optimism/delusion that litters the league in June, and how much of it is real? The Saints have put together three straight 7-9 seasons despite having an abysmal defense. If the defense improves a little, they get to the playoffs. If the defense improves a lot, they’ll be partying like it’s 2009, with the kind of record that forces the road to Minnesota through Louisiana.

The team continues to be led by a 38-year-old quarterback whose teammates still believe in him. Zealously.

“Is there a better quarterback?” Jordan said regarding Brees. “You tell me how many 5,000-yard seasons have been produced in NFL history.”

A bunch of ignorant idiots that know nothing about the Saints and their obvious improvement over the off-season.

When asked a question in an interview the object is to give an answer. That requires speech ... also known as talk. The time to show isn't until the evening of September 11th.

Talks been cheap for our D for quite a few years. Action has also. Sept, 11th they better prove they can play better than they talk.

Both Cam and Drew have been asked these specific questions during interviews. What exactly did you want them to say? Nothing?

Do you deny that there have been major changes to improve the defense this off-season? Talk may be cheap to you, but this is a drastically different defense than has been fielded for the last few years. Even the players are aware of that fact and they seem to be more excited than they have been over the last few years.

Exactly. Are they supposed to dwell on former defenses and failures or look optimistically toward the upcoming season? I would damn sure rather my team's players be positive. To be otherwise dooms one to be a loser.
