Cameron Jordan Named NFC Defensive Player of the Month

Finally getting some of the recognition he deserves.

As a good player on a historically bad defense in years past, you could argue that New Orleans Saints DE Cameron Jordan has been one of the NFL’s most underrated players. Now that the entire defense has stepped up and taken the unit out of cellar, Jordan is able to shine under increased exposure.

This has led to Jordan being named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month for November after being a one-man wrecking crew on the Saints defensive line.

Jordan has rushed the passer or stopped running backs in the backfield all year, and has been asked to line up on both ends of the formation, to keep opposing offenses guessing.

It’s not like it matters, though. You can try to account for Jordan where ever he winds up on the defensive line, but he’s still a force to be reckoned with.

But can we just go ahead and punch his ticket to the Pro Bowl already? kthanx
