Never one to shy away from a little trash talk, New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan told reporters after the team’s 34-23 victory over the Bucs that the empty Superdome “felt like we were at a Tampa Bay game”.

Jordan was criticizing what has been lackluster attendance at Tampa Bay games for years now, something the Bucs hoped to rectify this season, until COVID-19 reared its’ ugly head.

Meanwhile, Jordan’s comments weren’t the only thing to get Bucs fans riled up on Sunday. He also appeared to throw a punch at Ronald Jones in a pile during the first half, which prompted Ryan Jensen to exchange shoves and words with the Saints’ star. Jordan is known for trying to punch the ball out aggressively, which is likely what he was attempting to do here.

It was a relatively quiet day for Jordan, who finished with four tackles and zero sacks while working mostly against Bucs rookie right tackle Tristan Wirfs.

The man is just salty he got beat by a rookie he was supposed to “dominate” in his first game. Then again the Saints a a whole generally seem to lack any sort of class.

It’s a fun jab, and they won, but a rookie RT with no pre-season got the better of him. The little guy deep down is bitter.

All the class of a cheap suit, much like most of the Saints and their fans. Talks trash, but got shut out by a rookie, Jordan needs to stop running his mouth and up his game.

If there was a bright spot Wirfs was it. To bad Smith was the one who looked like a rook. He got beat so bad on one play a could swear he fell asleep in his stance!

Engouraged by the play of the rookie Wirfs, but you all should have noticed some guy named Gronk standing beside him most of the game. I know Donovan Smith is the current whipping boy. Seems we always have one. He had one really bad play for all to see, but the rest of the game he did just fine.

Saints have always been no class trash talkers. Smith sucks. They need to draft a real LT at some point or slide Wirfs there down the road.

I was watching I think the Patriots game and saw a Dolphins player do the same thing and get penalized for the same thing. Of course for all the whining they do about the officiating they got some home cooking yesterday. Donovan Smith didn’t just have one bad play yesterday he had three or four and on one series he had two bad back to back plays. This is his fifth or sixth year in the league now and he has to realize by now you can’t take cat naps in an NFL game. The problem with Jordan’s remark is… Read more »

Rojo had the ball and was on the BOTTOM of the pile. That was either DSmith or Wirfs he hit. You can see 7 was first number on jersey.
