“If you read between the lines, we feel like
they’re saying well, if Minnesota would have had a possession who knows
what would have happened. We don’t appreciate that. I don’t
appreciate it at all.” said Vilma in comments to Reuters at the Sony Ericsson Open, a pro tennis tournament in which he played a “friendly match” with world number two Caroline Wozniacki. (Wait . . . What?)
While Vilma is overreacting, he may have hit upon a source of motivation for Sean Payton to use, especially if the team opens against Minnesota.
As Steelers fans know, defending champs need every little extra edge they can get.
