Default This may be a stupid question about Babin, but here goes.

Would you entertain the idea of moving him to SS?

Now, before you call the people with the custom fitted white jackets to hook me up, hear me out.

While Babin is still a rookie & learning a new position, he seems to disappear completely from games. He's finally figured out that spinning to his right all the time won't work in the NFL. So, he's started spinning to the left as well.

Babin has great speed in the open field, is an exceptional open field tackler (unless, he over runs the play), & has a non stop motor.

However, he doesn't deal with traffic very well. He keeps getting jammed up & isn't very good at getting seperation from the blockers.

While Peek has been somewhat wreckless at times, the defensive line surge is definitely improved with Peek in, instead of Babin. This is not meant as an insult to Babin, just that he might be better suited playing in the open field.

Thus, my original question. Would you entertain the idea of moving Babin to the SS position? At 6'2" 259 lbs & with exceptional sideline to sideline speed, he'd make a devastating SS. He wouldn't have to deal with the traffic in the middle & his 259 lbs running at full speed, would pack a wallop everytime he laid a lick on someone. He'd revolutionize the position.

I know, it's a stupid idea. But, if it were possible, would you do it? Now, flame away.
