Bountylicious

May 2, 2012

Holy freakin’ Toledo, Batman! This bounty scandal keeps getting juicier and juicier.

So now Jonathan Vilma is suspended for the ENTIRE year. Three more of the Saints’ better defenders are also suspended for a certain amount of games though all are appealing.

Was it justified to give Vilma the Sean Payton treatment? I don’t know. The details will determine that.

I’m guessing Vilma was either the ring leader of the bounty attacks or there was sufficient evidence to point to his hits actually injuring opponents.

Either way this is a huge blow to the Saints. Their D needs all the help they can get, and this is clearly the exact opposite of “help.”

And for Vilma personally, he’s already in his peak so missing an entire season could be absolutely devastating to his career.

We’ll have to wait for the undoubtedly gruesome details of the investigation. But I highly doubt these suspensions get overturned, based on how strict Roger Goodell had been so far.

All I know for sure is that not even Drew Brees can save this team now. The Saints’ reign at the top of the NFL may have just crumbled into obscurity.

Thanks for reading and tune in tomorrow for more Jam Shots. Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @Jamblinman.
