If memory serves me he said something along the lines of "You have to give up something to get something in this league and we decided with the depth at DE that Jason was the talent we had to give up in order to fill a need at Safety."

not verbatim but I remember the interview...

I just hope no AFC playoff bound team picks him up. I can see it now AFC Championship game Babin 3 sacks for NE. NE wins! Ouch nightmare.

We will. The Titans are needy enough and bad enough to claim him and get him. No worries though. I imagine after this season in Philadelphia he's ready to shut it down and go to the house until training camp (wherever that may be). Unless he's picked up by a team that's rolling and headed to the playoffs I bet he goes full turtle for the rest of the year.

I'd pick him up.

I think we'd have a good shot to do so since there probably aren't many teams ahead of us on the wire that need him and still have play-off hopes.

Didn't he bad-mouth the Texans after he was traded? I know he was a punk when he was with the Tacks when they beat us, didn't he take the game-winning kneel-down or am I mis-remembering? I just remember him really getting fired up to play us, but that could've been the steroids he was on at the time, allegedly.

I spent about four hours with him one time. He was an ahole. I would not be surprised at all if Kubiak just wanted him gone.

Avert your eyes.



/Babin tweeted this picture to show ESPN he should be in the "Body Issue." If there were the d-bag issue, he'd be a shoe in. Yuck.

If he's an ahole, why would you remain in his company for 4 hours ?

I don't know. Babin complained about playing in the 3-4 under Capers. And there was some bad blood between him and the Texans (especially their medical staff). Not sure if there is interest from either party.

I never met Babin, but I used to tailgate next to his family. Nice and fun loving bunch, especially his mom. Probably skips a generation.

I don't doubt it. I met one of his best friends as well and he seemed distinctly uncomfortable with Babin's behavior.

Now mind you our meeting came in the context of my making Babin's wallet lighter on behalf of a contractor he stiffed at his ranch. But in the context of 20 years of such dealings he stood out as an ahole and a liar.

I doubt Babin would ever return to Houston to be on its roster, my recollection is that he's a prideful man and now a wealthy man who is bitter about missed opportunities and wasted years here.
But I remember reading many positive things about Babin and his family, and
Babin is very much about family. And I remember the stories of Babin eating the chiken bones before he played a game in HS ? At one time Babin was greatly admired by Houston fans as a high-motor guy who didn't take plays off.
"Professional capacity." ? What capacity ? Hooker and john ? Don't know ?
