It took me a while to remember that defensive end Jason Babin even played for the Seahawks.
(And it may take some of you time to remember who Babin is: a former Texans first-round pick that has bounced around the league, last with the Eagles.)
But Babin’s time in Seattle under Mike Holmgren left a mark on him, and he compared the experience to the excellent coaching he’s received in Tennessee.
“I think the biggest thing here is just that I’m getting coached,” Babin told the Tennessean. “In Seattle, they didn’t want me, didn’t coach me, didn’t talk
to me. Here, I’m wanted. I’m getting coached. [Jim Washburn] tells me I
what need to work on, tells me what I need to work on and boom, boom,
boom, it works.”
That tends to happen with Washburn, perhaps the best defensive line coach in football.
What happened in Seattle could very well be a reflection of a team where the G.M. and coach were not on the same page.
