Default Re: Babin Being Babin

Had a brain fart. You're right - he was drafted with Dunta. The basic argument still stands, though. He's kind of the forgotten guy.

yep. And while certainly true, I think it says a lot more about the weakness of our line than it props up Babin. I think he's a good kid, but should not be our best defensive lineman at this point, IMO.

BTW, any 'tweeners' that have ever been dominant? I'm just curious what kind of history we can hope for with a player like Babin.

Dwight Freeney, Shawn Merriman, DeMarcus Ware, Joey Porter...I could go on and on.....tons of tweeners are in the pro bowl every year and even in the hall of fame. Babin will never get there of course...but being a tweener isn't a bad thing...it's just a thing.

cool....seeing those names gives me a good direction to look at....I'm not saying Babin will be at those guys' levels, but it does help to understand where he could go and the impact he could provide.

After all, he might be our biggest threat on the line.
