It’s Blake Bortles Week around the NFL, apparently!
First it was New Orleans Saints defensive end clowning on Bortles and his penchant for interceptions in practice and now we have Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman arguing that if Bortles has a job, Colin Kaepernick should at least be given a chance.
Here were Sherman’s comments to USA Today:

And here are Jordan’s comments to SiriusXM NFL Radio:
Jordan on facing Brees: It helps the defense. Its not like we're going against Blake Bortles. Its not like Drew is giving picks away #Saints— SiriusXM NFL Radio (@SiriusXMNFL) August 2, 2017
To be fair to Bortles, he’s been less downright awful and more inconsistent. The five-interception anomaly was just that — an anomaly. He needs to do better in terms of mechanics, throwing motion, and decision-making, but he hasn’t really been the interception-machine all camp that we all roasted him for on Saturday night.
But the question still remains, folks...
Who had the better burn on Bortles this week? Who made the better point? Let us know in the comments section below.
