Cameron Jordan on Matt Kalil: Let’s call him Speedbump McGee

Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan was voted a first team All-Pro last week and he gave a pretty good display of why during Sunday’s 31-26 win over the Panthers.

Jordan sacked Cam Newton once, knocked down a couple of his passes and provided constant pressure over the course of the afternoon, including on a key intentional grounding penalty at the end of the game. In between plays, Jordan would share his thoughts with members of the Panthers offensive line and it seems left tackle Matt Kalil was the main conversation partner.

They weren’t sharing best wishes on the new year.

“I was actually talking more to the other Kalil brother,” Jordan said, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “I don’t know his first name, Speedbump. Let’s call him Speedbump McGee. That guy.”

Jordan and the Saints have certainly enjoyed seeing Kalil and the Panthers this season as Sunday’s win was their their third in as many tries. Jordan said he’s going to send Newton a bottle of wine to commemorate that achievement. That will likely be accepted as happily as the nickname Jordan bestowed upon Kalil, but it will be quite a while before the Panthers can do anything about it on the field.

  1. You know, I hear a lot of Saints fans talking about how they can’t stand Newton because he apparently doesn’t have enough class (you know, dancing and showing emotion). Yet you love this dude and your head coach. They seem like first class tool bags.

  2. Speedbump McGee, ha! That’s the way we felt about him in Minnesota. 5yrs, $55M. Good job Carolina. Probably only two years more before you can really cut him I imagine.

    Stay classy, Cameron

    “Class” is something fans of a losing team whine about to make themselves feel better. This is the first time I’ve ever heard Cam Jordan trash talk an opposing player, and he did it in the very same sentence in which he praised Matt Kalil’s brother Ryan for being a great player. If he was trash talking it’s probably a continuation of what went down on the field.

  4. Riley Reiff has his hands full this week against Jordan, but I don’t think Jordan will be bestowing any nicknames after the game. Amazing that Reiff and Kalil got almost the same contract and the Vikings improved immensely at left tackle.

    lol. Not True. You see Players like Drew Brees, Brady, etc take pride in winning without putting down specific players. This was unclassy. I’m not even a fan of Carolina.

  6. That’s pretty funny. Jordan is a pretty straight-up guy, then again his dad is a former Viking. Kallil trashed the Vikings on the way out of town, so its entertaining to hear him get a little back.
