I found this interesting...this is kinda what Vilma and Harper have been most of the season...


and quote

"13:42): Poor leverage by both Vilma and Harper allowed Jackson to turn the corner and pick up 10 yards on a run that should have been a loss. Vilma diagnosed the play immediately and was unblocked, but inexplicably hesitated in the hole, allowing Jackson the split-second he needed to break the play outside. Harper surrendered his edge responsibility and Jackson easily beat him to the corner. This play might not have seemed like much at the time but better execution by two of the Saints' best defenders would have resulted in another tackle for loss or at worst a minimal gain. Instead of, say, third-and-20 or third-and-15 from the shadow of their own end zone, the Rams instead had a manageable third-and-9, which they converted en route to the first scoring drive of the game. To me, this was the first turning point of the game.

Another good observation

(1:36): The Saints talk about "populating to the football" all the time when asked about creating more turnovers. This 13-yard catch by Salas was a case study. A solid hit by Vilma forced the ball loose but because Robinson wasn't hustling to the ball he was beaten to it by Jackson at the 3. Another example of the Rams' simply playing harder and with more intensity than the Saints.

Yeah and vilma was effectively taken out of the play a number of times by blocking. You really think he's that hurt? and GW has no replacement for him. very interesting stuff

I think Dunbar has filled in decent enough for Vilma, when he has too

I just want last years defense back. I want him to back peddle, and say, " OH, ok that didn't work".
Exactly. Sean Payton is our resident mad doctor - there can be only one.

It's defense, stupid: Knock the **** out of the guy with the ball and ***, ****, or bleed it will come loose.

Know your role, do it well - or will find someone who can.
