This guy is the clutch to our D. They got him for a reason. We may or may not go D in the first round. I know we all for the most part want us to. But Vilma is here to play, and he is going to be a HUGE part of our success this year. I don't care who we draft. I feel like he was a diamond misplaced in the rough and we plucked it out. He's glad to be here(HUGE +) He's a beast at his natural place on the field, which he will get here(+ again). We kinda just got away with a nice draft pick in our own right with his age. He seems like too good of a person to not have his knee be ok. I'm pumped.

I agree, even if we draft Sedrick Ellis or Glenn Dorsey, I'll be more excited about Jonathan Vilma come training camp and preseason.

I am very pumped about number 51. He will make our defense better for sure, more so than any rookie can.

Balanced teams win consistantly, and Vilma gets us one step closer to being a balanced team.

Remember in '06. Our offense was great, but our defense and special teams performed well too. Alot of the big plays early in the year that got the team off te ground were special teams plays: Gleasons punt block, Reggies return.

Our offense is our biggest strength, but without the support of the defense and special teams, we lose.

Think, we are potentially going from one of the worst MLBs in the league to a top 5 MLB. How awesome does that sound? Man, I really hope Vilma can return to his great form and be the player for us that he once was in NY.

i'm with you. these injury concerns are a joke, people are trying to make out that he and morgan have the same of odds of playing. Vilma has a very "normal" injury and he will be out there at full streangth for us and he is a FORCE out there. He'll play fine with our sub-par DTs, but if we get some big strong DT he will have over 150 tackles. an elite LB

Wrong thread. This one is about Jonathan Vilma.

I am ultra excited about Vilma, but am not going to say yet if I am more excited than our 1st round draft pick because we don't know who it is yet. I think if Dorsey or Ellis get picked, I might be more excited about them than Vilma. I also think that I would be ultra excited if we got Rivers and Laws in 1 and 2.

I'm not either.

I hope Vilma can do it, but he is only jogging now, not ready to run yet.

Folks, I have my fingers crossed, this could be the boost our D needs, but everybody calm down. Lets not jump the gun til we know more.

I'll laugh later.

Sounds great from here!

What if he pulls a Drew Brees and is actually BETTER than ever?

Why are people scared to be excited about a player on this board, everytime someone tries to pump a player up, there is always someone who wants to point out the negative, like we don't know the negative, we know the negative about these players (Vilma and Morgan...or whoever) being excited about a player is not being blind about the negative possibilities.

I'm maintaining the faith that Vilma will be good ta go and that there will be a minimal amount of residual affects from the knee job. I just don't feel like hanging on to the negative side of this and I really do think he'll be just fine *pray*. I can't wait to see him running our D and I hope he does it for many years to come.

You're right. It's all perception and assumption, meily. Some choose to see the good, some choose to see the bad.

Well, no argument, but let's look at the OP:

"This guy is the clutch to our D. They got him for a reason. We may or may not go D in the first round. I know we all for the most part want us to. But Vilma is here to play, and he is going to be a HUGE part of our success this year. I don't care who we draft. I feel like he was a diamond misplaced in the rough and we plucked it out. He's glad to be here(HUGE +) He's a beast at his natural place on the field, which he will get here(+ again). We kinda just got away with a nice draft pick in our own right with his age. He seems like too good of a person to not have his knee be ok. "


Clutch to our D? He is going to be a huge part of our success this year? These are unknowns. I call it jumping the gun.

And I like:

"He seems like too good of a person to not have his knee be ok. "

Well, if being a good person means your knee will be ok, Deuce is a lock for all pro.

Just suggesting we don't jump the gun, but I want Vilma to make it as much as anyone here. And all of us do.
