Cameron Jordan spoke highly of Drew Brees on Wednesday, saying that playing opposing the Hall of Famer helps the New Orleans Saints defense. In the process, he also trashed Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles.
Jordan on facing Brees: It helps the defense. Its not like we're going against Blake Bortles. Its not like Drew is giving picks away #Saints

Ouch. That’s just brutal.
But really, it’s hard to argue against his point.
Stats don’t lie. Bortles has 51 interceptions in three seasons and recently threw five interceptions at a practice.
But still, ouch.
Our only wish here is that the Saints and Jaguars played this year. There’s no telling what Bortles is capable of when he’s been given bulletin board material. But alas, the next meeting between the two teams will not come until 2019.
