In 2009 Vilma had another great season with the Saints once again being a force on the defensive side of the ball, although the Saints defense wasn’t ranked as high as the team played, they were a very formidable unit, and Jonathan Vilma played a big role in making that happen.

During the post season Vilma made a critical defensive play when he intercepted Brett Farve to help seal a 31-28 victory in the NFC Championship game last year.

In 2010 Vilma played and started all 16 games for the Saints, once again showing his durability. He had another outstanding year, although exiting early in the playoffs losing to the Seahawks.

He will be back in 2011 to help the team achieve their ultimate goal and win another championship.

During the Saints Super Bowl run Vilma’s parents home country was devastated by a earthquake that rocked the tiny country of Haiti. The earthquake was a catastrophic magnitude of 7.0.

He started trying to help raise awareness and money to help restore so many lives back to some kind of normalcy, all of this while trying to help his teammates win the Saints first Championship.

If this team can stay healthy like Vilma, and with the addition of a couple of players, the rest of the NFL will need to look out.
