Why not, couldn't hurt this defense
Why not, couldn't hurt this defense
Why wouldn't we give him a shot? People act like he is doing terrible but he would have probably gotten 8-11 sacks had he finished the year with the eagles. Yea not 18 but not bad at all. Plus the eagles have been behind for most of the season and that means opposing teams run more/pass less which equals less oppurtunities.
People say no 3-4 experience (which I think is false), but Orakpo and Kerrigan didn't either, and he is the perfect size for a 3-4 OLB. What is the risk? 1.6 million the rest of the year? Not our money who cares. Probably much better than Jackson
Remember the last Fecals player we brought in here?

I don't think Shanny would put up with him anyway
He was the guy responsible for Lich's ACL last year. Don't want him anywhere near here.

He had some 3-4 experience. he also could be used exclusively as a situational pass rusher. If I'm the lions I'm all over this though imo
N to the MF O!
Let's go pick-up a 32 year old, 43 DE on the downside of his career. Yeah, that fits always round into what we're trying to build here. And one the absolutely woeful Eagles have just released.

Makes you wonder why the eagles released him if he still is rather productive? My guess, he's a malcontent in the locker room. I'll pass.
it sounds like Babin wanted out, due to the classlessness of their fans..
i was cringing, every time i heard them boo, the other day.. i actually felt bad for Reid.. after all he's done for that franchise.. eagles fans should be ashamed..
we have our own stereotype, however its the exact opposite of theirs.. we get behind and find the silver lining no matter what
its good to be a skin. hail!
i need a new sig
Babin was HORRIBLE against the run. He's a one trick pony and he hasn't done that very well this year.
I say pass, pass, pass.....No need for a 32 year old player on the downside of his career.
They're still running the wide 9 over there huh? lol. I mean from my understanding of the wide 9, and why the Eagles implemented it; was under the assumption that you have a lead. Or an offense that takes leads. Which the Eagles offense does NOT do anymore, since starting week 1. The inside lanes are completely wide open, and if the tackles are strong enough to keep the lightweight DE's to the outside. And Monty who has been a force this year can prevent movement from the tackles along with the guards...I call field day for Redskins RB's.
These are the same DE's that run the W9 this year for the Eagles. On this play, one DE split way wide, with the defensive tackles shifted towards the left. You can tell me the Eagles "design" their wide scheme to stop the stretch play, and I'm not using this play as total fact; I'm using my brain from what I've seen of them, and how I often refer to it as a joke.
This article states "no one has rushed for more than 100 yards on the Eagles yet!" This is such bull**** writing it's funny. Ray Rice literally had 99 yards rushing. Ryan Williams and beanie wells ran all over them. Mendenhall and Redman went over 100 on them. Jacquizz Rodgers and Turner ran all over them for 100+. The Saints had 3! Running backs go 44+ each on them. And the Cowboys had their way with their **** line as well.
There's no hiding it this year, the Eagles are a bad team. The mirrors that once worked with smoke are cracked. The front office is a mess, their salary cap is a mess for next season, their FA pick ups will be leaving town with Vick this off-season, and their coach is on the downhill after a destructive off-season to his personal life and no help from the guys on the field. The Eagles defense has been weak for years, they tried to run some things with it to make it compliment their dynamic offense full of undersized weaklings. It didn't work. The wide 9 still isn't working for them.
It wasn't even Castillo, even though he was garbage, they built their plan around an aging once very dynamic mobile QB who has took a turn for the worst with his consistent and damaging injuries. If it isn't apparent how obvious and inflating their wide 9 made their defense look last year.
Babin 2011 - 18.5 sacks - Babin 2012 - 3.5 sacks.
Trent Cole last 5 seasons - 9 + sacks / Trent Cole 2012 - 1.5 sacks
They're 260 lbs wet and wearing boots, and Trent is going to **** all of them up.
The Eagles got what they deserved, a **** roster full of overpaid bums. A front office who lacks logical thinking. A scum QB who should retire soon. Tons of players that quit on them every other snap. And a blown up franchise.
I hope Reid leaves this off-season because he's the only guy I respect there. I wish that man the best.
Makes me very happy seeing the Eagles like this, and the Redskins with a franchise QB, RB, and LT, and it looks like the making of a possible franchise K. People once saw the Redskins recently as "Oh you guys got Kerrigan and Orakpo, yea those guys are beasts" now it will be cemented as "Oh you guys have Big Trent, RG3, and that Running back"

When I first heard about this on NFLN I thought why not and it could be a great revenge factor when the Skins face them in Week 16, but the guy has too much tread on his tires. though. IMO, he couldn't hurt that much.

Babin would be just as effective as Jason Taylor was
