Jason Babin is still mad at the Seahawks

Defensive end Jason Babin has become one of the few fully-functioning floats in the Dream Team parade.  With 10 sacks in 11 games, Babin has made mincemeat of opposing offensive lines from his intimidating, low-to-the-ground stance.

Just before Babin signed with the Eagles, he joined PFT Live to discuss his options in free agency, pointing out that during his time in Seattle he barely played, due to a disconnect between former G.M. Tim Ruskell and former head coach Mike Holmgren.  Now that the Eagles are planning to play the Seahawks, Babin acknowledges that he still holds a grudge.

“It’s not easy going to a new place and not being wanted and kind of treated badly and have your assistant coach not talk to you and your head coach you tell you, ‘Oh, I didn’t want you.’  So it’s tough,” Babin said, via PhillySportsDaily.com.

So what does he have in mind?  “I’m just going to let them know that I didn’t forget,” Babin said.

On Twitter, Babin said he’s “[r]eady to show my distain [sic] for Seattle, they treated the Babin family bad.”  Babin added the hashtags “BlameMikeH” and “SinsOfTheFather.”

The latter point reflects Babin’s realization that the only common thread in Seattle is the owner.  Holmgren is long gone, as is Ruskell.  So there’s no one left with whom to be upset.

But with a 4-7 record, motivation is hard to come by.  So if it gets Babin’s motor running, that’s fine by us.

  1. gee two birds playing each other that can’t fly….looks like they have had their wings clipped this season.

    Having Nnamdi play zone is a joke.

  2. Thanks to Pete again for Aaron Curry, dude is getting better and better every game.

    He was an absolute star last game.

    Pete, you da man.

  3. 10 sacks means nothing when you only have 29 tackles…try stopping the run and maybe we would win a game or two

  4. Mike —
    Don’t go by just the stats– how about being a help on running plays – there are some games where the ONLY time you hear his name is on his sack of the game– Stats do not tell the whole story —

    Difference is, one invested everything in Free Agency and has been a severe disappointment after claiming to be a “dream team” , while the other is the 2nd youngest team in the league and had absolutely zero expectations coming into a rebuilding year. One is 4-7 with Michael Vick and Vince Young as QB. The other is 4-7 with Tarvaris Jackson at QB. Since this year is over for both teams, and we’re forced to look to the future on both, I’d take the future of Seattle over that of the Eagles.

    As for Babin, I love the comeback from being a bust to a top pass rusher, and I always hoped SEA would give him a chance. Problem is, nobody on the Seattle sideline will even know what the heck he’s mad at. He’s going to try and prove a point to people who really don’t care.

    Uhhhh. Aaron Curry is averaging 4.5 tackles a game with OAK in 6 games. 1 pass defensed over that time, with zero forced fumbles, zero (that’s “0”) interceptions and a total of 4 runs stuffed. Wahoo. Keep doin’ the dance buddy.

  7. Sometimes you’re mad at the helmet. How many Raiders fans will be mad about the Immaculate Reception the rest of their lives? it was 40 years ago, none of those guys are playing anymore and half of them are dead. It’s human nature.

  8. maybe this clown should hold a grudge against running backs and actually try to stop one of them some time this season

  9. 1st two posts on an Eagles/Seahawks thread are from loser troll Raider fans. Maybe smart phones really ARE being smuggled into prisons at a record pace…

  10. Jason’s dreams of cold steel revenge will be smothered by Russell Okung. He better hope the secondary is on form, because coverage sacks are about all he’ll be getting.

    Kinda hoping Carroll will start Josh Portis. The playoffs are now more or less officially out of reach, Whitehurst was a clear bust, and Jackson is playing hurt. Why not give the kid a start or three down the stretch and see what he can do? At worst, you lose games and move up the draft board to a higher pick and a better shot at one of the premiere rookie QBs. At best, you find the QB prospect of the future sitting right on your own bench, and can use that first-round pick on a pass-rushing DE.

  11. How about Marshawn Lynch goes Beastmode all over Babin’s ego? Then at least he’ll have something relevant to be resentful about. What a crybaby. Get over yourself.

  12. Lol well Babin, when Washburn gets fired along with the rest of the Eagles staff, you will sit on the roster and be useless AGAIN, as they go back to a more traditional defense. Think the Eagles have learned their lesson from the Wide9. No use padding Babins stats if it means the rest of the team suffers.

  13. Dont be so mad Babin. The entire coaching staff has changed, and gm now resides in chicago.
    But if you reeeeaaalllllyyyyyy feel disgruntled and you chose to take your anger out on Tavarius Jackson, please do so. This only ensures the Seahawks better draft picks over your team.

  14. Eagle fans are happy to know he is focused on winning the game. I think. This is another reason why winning teams limit who can speak publicly about an upcoming opponent.

    you, sir are correct.

    just like his playing days in seattle, hes everywhere alright- everywhere everyone else is at after the play is already made.

  17. The more I think about it, the more this anger confuses me.

    Babin got paid by Seattle to do nothing. He suffered no injuries while playing for them. He was then able to take his fully healthy body to Tennessee, have a great year, and sign a fat contract in Philadelphia.

    In all likelihood, his career will be extended by a year or two, because he didn’t get playing time in Seattle.

    Yeah, I’d be totaly PO’d at an organization that paid me a crapload of money and left me in a condition where I could go make an ever larger crapload of money over a longer period of time.
