We should have never let Babin go. We sent him packing after he'd had the best camp of his career supposedly and for a nobody (Boulware.... not that one, the one who sucked) trying to fix something for a DC (Richard Smith) who wouldn't have been able to successfully coach a Pro Bowl defense if you gave him a year to prepare.
It's not that I had any real affinity for Babin. I didn't. I just hated to see a first round pick wasted like that. They clearly hadn't given him enough time to transition back into a 4-3 DE after he spent a couple of years trying to learn to be a 3-4 OLB.
