Babin bit on the QB bootleg and is one of the biggest rookie mistakes there is. Playing as a defensive end on running plays Babin is responsible for outside containment on his side of the field, not the other side. Why in the world would he chase a running back he has no chance to catch (he was running in the opposite direction) to the opposite side of the field and not be sure the QB doesn't have the ball (which is on his side of the field)? All he has to do is not allow anyone around his end position on running plays, turn it back to the inside where you have help. (He is making more money that most of us on this board make in total to do this one thing on running plays) It's a simple job description but so easily forgotten by rookies it seems. That play was one of the major reasons we lost this game but was a lesson he should have learned early in college.
