I'll take Babin's 3 to 4 solo tackles of a RB, stopping a big gain, and a couple of QB hurries over Peek's 2 sacks and getting burned on any counter or cut back run. A sack has as much to do withthe defensive alignment and play calling as player skill. Plus Peek gets to play on teh weak side, where as Babin is routinly going up against the opposing teams left tackle, ie their best O-line men.
FYI, Babin normally lines up against a RT, while Wong goes up against the LT. The strong side could be on the left or right depending on where the TE lines up.
