Tampa Bay GM Trolls New Orleans Saints After Winning NFC South
Some of the best rivalries in the NFL are found in the NFC South.
Let's see the Saints dislike the Falcons, the Buccaneers dislike the Saints, the Falcons despise the Saints and no one cares about the Carolina Panthers.
Well, the General Manager of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jason Licht, roasted the Saints and their star player Cam Jordan after his team won their third straight conference championship.
In one single Tweet, Licht reminded fans that Tampa Bay was going back to who they are, as NFC South Champions.
During the off-season, Cam Jordan predicted that Tampa Bay would return to the team they were before Tom Brady arrived, and they have not. With Tom Brady, the Bucs won a Super Bowl and they were the team to beat in the NFC.
Since Brady retired, some, like Cam Jordan, thought that the Bucs would fall off the map in the NFL and they haven't. For the fourth straight year, Tampa Bay is in the NFL Playoffs, while others in their division are not.
So, the GM of the Bucs thought that it would only be fitting to share the video of Jordan predicting the Buc's demise, and he did so in the pettiest of ways.
Check out the Tweet here from the Bucs GM, and if you're a football fan you can't wait for the 2024 NFL season. The NFC South teams do not like each other and in recent weeks that point was made quite clear.
Tampa Bay will host the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend the NFC Wild Card Round.
As a refresher, here's the final play of the Saints season as they scored a touchdown on the Falcons after they thought the Saints were in "victory formation."
Jameis Winston called his own play to allow his teammate to score a touchdown and that did not sit well with the former coach of the Atlanta Falcons. Yes, the rivalry is real down South.
And here was the exchange between coaches after the game in the Superdome.
