Vilma question re-visited...?

Can we win THIS game without his leadership? In his career with the Saints, it's safe to say he knows the Falcons offense about as good as anyone except maybe G.W., and he aint playing.

I don't have a statistical mind. Which game was it that he missed this year? Did we suffer?

"Which one?"

He's missed a couple games this year. He's also played in some where he didn't look so good. He's been somewhat injured.

You could tell the last couple of games he played, he was not himself. This is for the best. 3 weeks of rest and hopefully he should be back in business.

I will say, Jo-Lunn Dunbar has filled in pretty decently in his absence. He is getting everybody where they need to be and that's what we rely on Vilma to do the most. We haven't suffered in his loss to much IMO.

Agreed, Dunbar has done a great job and stepped up.

Dunbar may not have the stoic presence of Vilma but the man can play. Shanle, I don't even want to have that conversation.

If Vilma is not healthy enough to play then I don't think that there's any question about whether or not the Saints will be better off without him on the field. Dunbar has played well, which is good because the Saints really don't have any other option than to start him as the MLB.

GW has complimented Dunbar's football IQ on a number of occasions, so I think he'll be a good backup to Vilma as the D's QB. As long as the D tackles as well as they did against the Tampoons - I think the D will be fine against Matty Lice and the run. It was also exciting to see Sharper at the sidelines during last game - hopefully he'll be able to build up the confidence of the DBs, especially young guys like Patrick.

The linebackers have been playing faster with Vilma being out, until he is 100% and shows it, leave it alone. Vilma is good but right now he can't help us on the field.
