The New Orleans Saints have remained one of the best teams in the NFC over the last several seasons, and little should change this season. However, New Orleans has caught bad luck in the last few postseasons. Longtime pass rusher Cameron Jordan spoke up.
He recently revealed what the Saints need in order to win an elusive Super Bowl title this time around.
“I’m heading into year 10. I love it. I’m super excited about it,” Jordan said during an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio on Monday, via NBC Sports Pro Football Talk. “You know, there’s nothing in me that is telling me that our team isn’t close to a championship or being a championship-caliber team if you look at the last three years. You know, playoffs, playoffs, playoffs. Playoffs, NFC Championship, playoffs. This is something that we have to capitalize on. You talk about Drew [Brees] coming back, our addition of Jameis Winston. You talk about, you know, we lose Vonn Bell, [but] we bring in Malcolm Jenkins. We go draft an outside linebacker in this Zack Baun kid. You know, Alex Anzalone [is] going to be healthy. There’s so many positives on paper. I just want to get back to the field and really see what we have.”
In the 2017 season, the Saints were the victims of the “Minneapolis Miracle” in the divisional round the playoffs as the Minnesota Vikings marched on to the NFC Championship Game.
In the 2018 season, the Saints infamously lost to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game, due to a missed call by the referees in overtime.
Last season, the Saints lost to the Vikings in overtime. They were ousted from Super Bowl contention in the wild card round on a game-winning touchdown reception by Minnesota tight end Kyle Rudolph.
