Vilma to IR

At this stage in Vilmas career, Hawthorne is a better LB, this is a major injury for vilma...
If Hawthorne stays healthy Vilma will not come off IR to play which couldn't possibly happen until week 9.

He is being stashed for retirement and to free up a roster spot.

Re: Vilma to IR

meachem deep is waste of money. thats all he can do.

Defense is is need of a player then again the OL could use a player also.

PT goes down we are sunk in the run game.

Wow amazing what 1 spot does to ya

Re: Vilma to IR

Vilma hasn't been top shelf since that sports hernia thing a few years ago.
He never really got his leverage back. He was already undersized, which
worked for him, and us, with his speed to the ball. He hasn't been that guy
for quite a while. It seems his ailments have begun to compound themselves.
I hope he can get back to 8 tackles a game. I'd be satisfied with 4.

Re: Vilma to IR

Vilma was put on the return IR because he was elgible. No other player was a candidate or worthy of the designation. He may come back and contribute. He may not. Having him available to return can only be a positive for the Saints. As far as Meachem goes, all we've heard from the SD media is how he's physically done. Clearly, that's not the case or the Saints would not have signed him. If healthy, and I assume he is, he's absolutely an upgrade over Tanner.

Comparing Meachem to Tanner is apples to oranges... Way different type of receivers

Yep, and why not. If we get bombarded with injuries he'll be quite welcome down the stretch.

@MikeTriplett: #Saints David Hawthorne could be upgrade over Jonathan Vilma if he returns to peak form | http://t.co/JYiJbAHvzZ http://t.co/TRaF0g0NkB

Re: Vilma to IR

Hawthorne did look good in the preseason, he read the QB came off his assignment and almost got that pick against the Texans...
