Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma’s weekend is off to a great start.
He had to be pleased with how “The U” dismantled the Pitt Panthers on ESPN last night.
He did a Q & A for PlaymakerMoble.com and gave some insights to the game.
Vilma, who had the key tipped pass late in last season’s game at the Superdome, is expecting another close battle.
VILMA: I expect a tough game from the Falcons. Even though we started 13-0 last season and beat the Falcons twice during that stretch, they were close games. We won by three points, I believe, at their place, on a fourth-down stop actually, to seal that victory. Then it was a close game at our house, less than seven points, I think. These matchups, we don’t expect a blowout. We know it’s going to be a grind, and winning a division game is almost like winning two games because of tiebreakers, so we have to get after it.
He calls the Falcons offensive line “gritty.” He talks about losing Reggie Bush and noted that he plans to keep an eye out for a certain No. 44, who had 186 total yards and was named the NFC offensive player of the week.
