Question? Babin and Peek
 
Does anyone else think, like I do, that we might see Peek and Babin both line up at OLBs? I could see this happening. Just like the Robinson pick to move colemen to Safety, could the Texas be planning on moving Wong to ILB? Just a thaught.

I have been wondering that also.

I have no clue, but that's what I've been hearing. Babin and Peek on the Outside with Foreman and Sharper on the inside. Not bad.

What they mean is Peek/Babin on the outside, with Wong at Foremans spot and Foreman on the bench. I could see it happening, would Peek have to do a lot of coverage from the LOLB position? I think he has the athleticism and he's probably been working on that in practice but would he be effective there considering he was supposed to be our ROLB pass rusher?

Doubtful since he counts $1.5 mil this year. That's a lot of dinero for a benchwarmer.

Good point aj...If that scenario did happen though, what do you think the Texans could get if they tried to trade him?

I would LOVE to see Babin and Peek on the field full time. They could make a great duo for Capers and Co.

^ fiddy that is a awesome avator

i think we are going to see babin - foreman - sharper - wong
and then on 3rd down/obvious pass situations we will see babin at de and peek at olb, isnt that what cass said?

I don't see what's so bad about Foreman, his numbers aren't bad.

Tim Couch rode the bench. And im sure he was worth more than 1.5 million. Im not saying its not a possibility. But only if it is in the best interest of the team.

Thanks, hopefully Robinson can do some screaming like that this year, too.

I would like to see it go
Peek-Wong-Sharper-Babin in the base set. I honestly don't think we lose much with Foreman in there either.

Scooter 05-02-2004 02:57 AM

IMO peek hasnt earned that spot yet. orr played better than peek did. as much as i'd like to see foreman on the bench, i dont think peek, orr, or babin can beat out foreman or wong ... yet. maybe later or next season they can push a veteran out of a job, but none has earned that yet.

How about Shantee Orr ? He ran down Vick last yr!
Looks like he has some good upside

I wouldn't mind seeing Shantee Orr out there if he is better than Peek this year. At least now we have about 6 LBs that can play (Sharper, Wong, Foreman, Peek, Orr, Babins). Unlike 3 last year (Sharper, Foremen, & Wong. Peek and Orr were just too raw last year).

On a side note who are the back up ILBs?

He does make a lot of tackles. Problem is, they seem to be too far downfield.

Wolf 05-02-2004 12:58 PM

A healthy DL will make our LB's look oh so much better whoever we stick out there :D

Come on! You base your starting lineup on how much the players are making? No way! You play your best player, period. The question is: how well can can Peek or Babin cover and how important is coverage skills to Casserly's defensive game plan? Peek is purely a converted DE. Babin has played some at LB. If Babin's coverage skills are adequate, and his pass rush skills are superior to Wong's, my guess is that we'll see Peek on the weak side and Babin on the strong side, with Wong maybe moving inside. It is equally likely that Babin will get a year of seasoning by playing the weak side with Wong staying on the strong side. This decision will be one of the more important highlights of training camp.

My guess is that in his 1st pro year, Peek has more coverage experience than Babin has had in his career at Western Michigan. Counting training camp, exhibition games, 8 or 9 regular season games, and all of the practices - Peek should be well ahead of Babin in terms of both zone & man coverage. I know SteelBlue may not agree with me ;), but I thought Peek showed a lot of upside in regards to coverage last season. But I think Peek will have to show the Texans very early on that he's ready to win the LOLB spot before the Texans move Wong inside.
