Vilma "doubtful" for Sunday's game

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; You know, despite seeing this news, I am not nervous still. I was nervous for the Pack, and Bears game, but this one...I just have a feeling we will do fine, even dominate. Can't wait to bring these Texans fan's ...

You know, despite seeing this news, I am not nervous still. I was nervous for the Pack, and Bears game, but this one...I just have a feeling we will do fine, even dominate. Can't wait to bring these Texans fan's back down to earth, they sure do talk a hell of a lot more than I've heard from Dallas fans in the last two years. Honestly, If I was going for any other team, it would be the Texans. But, I don't know what it is, I've ran into some pretty nasty Texans fans so far this year, met some doucher's at the Texans, Saints preseason game a few weeks back. Lol the majority of the Texans fans I talked with sure did act like that preseason game was a real game.

Is it Sunday yet?

I've always thought Dunbar's natural position was a 4-3 MLB. He played it in college and I for one am excited to see how good he can be.

He's probably our best pure tackler at LB. He's not blazing fast but he reacts quickly. I expect he'll make a few great hits.

I feel that our D performed pretty well last week when Vilma came out and Dunbar went in. The sky isn't falling folks, we will be fine.

Here's a thought - if the defense performs well, what statement/conclusion do you draw about Vilma's importance to the middle of the defense?

The captain of the defense? One game won't make me give up on the Saints stud middle linebacker no matter how well Dunbar plays.

It would be comforting to know that its not the end of our season if we lost Vilma for a few games.

Dunbar isn't no Vilma, but I'm believing he's going to make the most out of this opportunity by handling his business!He's got to be about the hardest hitter we have...Knock em' senseless Jo-Lonn!Malcolm got his back.

Dunbar stepped up during the game. I was impressed with him as the game went one...
