The Philadelphia Eagles’ All-Pro defensive end Jason Babin joined us today for our weekly segment, Ask Babin. In this segment, Jason gives us his take on the state of the Eagles and the upcoming game. What I found most interesting, though, is interviewer Dan Dubrow asked Jason about the lack of sacks from the Eagles front four this year. Dan provided stats that showed that the Eagles have had a significant drop in the quarterback sack statistic. Listen above to hear Babin’s answer.
Dan asked Babin about the last second field goal attempt and more importantly, the timeout called by coach Andy Reid. Babin is on the field goal block team and had a direct flight view of the kick as it initially looked good but fell just short. Hear Jason tell us what it felt like on the field.
Finally, Babin gives us his views on the Steelers game upcoming this week. Tune in to hear Babin tell us about the Steelers and even his opinion of the Chicago Bears defense that laid a hurting on Dallas on Monday night.
