Babin released

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

The way I see this is that they have given up on this season & have started a youth movement. Look for more to follow.

Nice to know we can basically count on our game against them as a win.

He must have done something. Right? I mean, otherwise, why do you release one of your better defenders? Because he was having a down year? Are you going to fire the other 10 starters having bad years?

not that anything out of this franchise makes any sense ...

the HC said the firing of Babin was to give younger players a chance to have playing time ... and ... to let Babin go ...
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

You gotta think there is a lot of dissent and bad vibes on that team right now. I wouldn't be surprised if this was just one of the vocal guys.

I'd be very surprised if we had the cap room for someone like Babin.

- the nfl article mentioned his cap hit for 2013 being managable.. and on top of that to bring him in for the rest of this year the Eagles take the hit right? sure he wouldnt mind some revenge in two weeks :twisted:

Mike and Mike were saying he looks like he has not been trying. They say coaches will be asking him "Why weren't you trying on this play?" when they go over film and negotiate.

Word is he's hoping no one picks him up so that he'll be a FA. Then his current cap # would disappear for the next employer (I think).

Apparently he thought he was "bullet proof", was taking games off, and was shocked (heard him chuckling about it in an interview.

I think he had something like 18 sacks last year and 5 so far this year.

Teams claiming a player off waivers don't have to pay his current salary. I'd bet he'd like to come here. I can see why someone would have a hard time getting motivated to play for the Smeagols.
