I hope I didn't make a mistake getting my Babin jersey. Do you guys really think that he is that bad or do you feel that he will be able to bounce back from this.

I know exactly where you are coming from Paragon Blue. I have 3 Jamie Sharper jerseys.
When they cut Sharper, I ordered a personal jersey with MY NAME and MY FOOTBALL NUMBER on it. The Texans can't cut me-----LOL. Texan fan 4-ever!
I am a big person and my jersey cost big bucks, $250.00.

At the Steelers game there was some guy behind me that kept yelling Babin sucks. I didn't want to turn around but I think he was directing it at me. So the next time he said it I turned around and yelled the whole team sucks and he just kind of looked at me weird.

I felt his main problem was that he was timid. He seemed to run right into blockers or always seemed to slow down right before getting to the QB. It was as if he was thinking stuff like "What is my assignment?" "Should I tackle him high or low?" "Is the ball going to be thrown before I get to him?" "Am I going to get a penalty if I tackle him?"

Maybe being a situational pass rusher will allow him to regain the confidence he had in College to get to the QB every now and then. I think most DEs converted to OLB begin in the pass rusher role anyways. Someone with more knowledge could confirm this. Just a hunch.

Why did the texans sign Morlon Greenwood? Its all his fault, if he didnt sign, Sharper would still be here, we'd be allowing around 20 23 points a game. Why did the texans trade for Phillip Buchanon he is a pansy, he doesnt
know what he is doing out there, we could have drafted a leginemnt reciever and a Pass Proctecter.

I miss Jamie Sharper and Aaron Glenn

To give an example for your point, top half of the 1st round draft pick Terrell Suggs was a situational pass rusher his 1st year and may have only become the starter as soon as he did due to injury.

I think Babin will be fine. Capers for some strange reason loves the baptism by fire concept. I personally don't agree with it because the newness and speed of the NFL is a little overwhelming for a lot of players. It's best to sit Babin for a bit, give him time to clear his head and make better decisions. This should piss him off so look for a sack by him this game.

I thought it was kind of interesting to go back and read some of the things people were saying about Babin when he was in college. One guy said he "plays with a lot of energy and the kind of quick ramp-up speed that is crucial to being one of the game’s elite sackmasters". I really doubt he could ever be among the best, but if they keep him focused on one thing, instead of having him where he ends up thinking too much and acting tentative, maybe he could become good at it. He averaged about 30 tackles for a loss and 15 sacks in his last two years before he was drafted, and I think you could call it a succesful move if he manages to get a third of that or close to it for the rest of the season.

So that's like bringing in the situational ANTI pass rusher? Ahhhh, makes sense

ok well part of an ILB job is to cover,,,so thatd be a little pointless.

I think our defensive scheme has a lot to due with his production. It is well known it is a complicated, read and react scheme (sucks as far as I am concerned). I suspect he would do very well in an attacking type defense (see Steve Foley). With some time to learn this one (it's said it takes 2-3 years) he might be real good, but he also may not be. If he went to SD, I think he would shine.

Can Babin play Left tackle ? Just kidding .

I do think the Texans coaches have created the dullest pro team in sports . No scoring , no turnovers , no sacks . Pretty soon the chearleaders will be wearing full length skirts .
