So who do you prefer at MLB?
 
Vilma or Lofton? Lofton showed strong promise before his ankle injury in pre-season. I thought Vilma's play dropped off last yea, and he'll probably be rusty with the layoff. But once he's back to full speed, who would you rather have manning the middle?

I dunno... but thinking about Lofton, Vilma, and Hawthorne manning out linebacker spots sounds pretty amazing. On paper we've went from having one of the weaker linebacker cores in the league to having one of the best.

Lofton. I think Vilma is on the down side of his career. He will still be better than a backup and could play another spot on our team. He could possibly start at MLB for some teams but given his injuries and all I think Lofton is better at this point in their careers. I side we move him to another position within the LB corps and keep Lofton as starter at MLB.

We need to see if Vilma has anything left.That knee is a major concern.

Im sure he will be serviceable at the least, I just don't know how soon we will be able to bring him in. He has a lot to learn with this new defense and can't just jump right in there.

Lofton, but I'd like to see Vilma back in a Saints uniform. He can still contribute in certain packages.

I have to roll with Lofton at this point. I honestly think Vilma's knees are shot, but still could be a very valuable backup once healthy again.

Lofton, Vilma has took a step back. Not to say he cant play still, just not were we would want him to be.
But saying this I cant see him being ready to play by week six even if he could.

Lofton

On run defense Lofton against the pass Vilma. Lifting still has a problem on pass defense just look at the games we played against Atlanta.
