    How about Jason Babin??? He proved alot to me today. Two tackles on LT behind the line and was always around the ball. :thumbup

    I think Babin played a great game. Was very impressed. No sacks, but he played well. At least 2 tackles behind the LOS. There was that other play where he grabbed LT with one arm and slowed him down enough for little gain.
    I think Robinson played pretty good but he did have 2 penalties. That 40 yarder was big, although he did have that receiver well covered.
    Didn't pay much attention to the others, but saw that Starling was having a little trouble shedding blockers when he would get downfield on kicks, at least on the couple I focused on him on. Overall, the rookies that played looked good.

    He had that receiver arm locked. Babin dropping LT twice behind the line was awesome.

    babin played well, what was he thinking on that late hit on lt?
    i dont think this was a good game for dunta. he made some nice tackles, but he looked bad on some coverage ESPECIALLY the caldwell td. he also had that long pass interference call. he gave up a couple of big plays that reall hurt the team.

    you guys saw a different game than me then. I saw no pass rush and a bad OT crush him 6 times and dunta got schooled by a bad WR and QB. And the pass interference call for 43 yds and he let caldwell beat him when he trips over his own feet for a 37 yd td??? also same play where was babin??? he was on his arse with fonoti sitting on him that is where. Coleman also played soft. This is very very concerning.

    Houston, again.
    Babin was solid in run suport. Fair in pass rush. He was doubled everytime I watched him on a rush. It looked like he had been told to maintain contain to his side incase LT came up with it. Should have left Wong open more than once.
