I really would like to see us get Babin but I would put our chances at 20%. Still, we need to hit Roethlisberger.

Andy Reid will be clearing things out before he exits Phila. I think Babin wants to play but few around him on the Eagles defense are. A change of scenery to the Ravens philosophy could put 5 more strong years into his career. Most likely won't happen though.

If they were trying to get Bryant McKinnie ready for the final push now is the time to see if it has paid off.

Please don't respond to that Adam Schein article. It's obviously just trolling for rage.

i really hope we get babin he could just give us that little extra push to make our defense good enough to get us all the way there. cause our O struggles on the road we need our D to be great like they were this last weekend. and adding him would be another great improvement to an already great rotation of pass rushing line backers and DEs

1. If we signed Babin, he would only be a 3rd down pass rusher, as he was graded as one of the worst run defense ends in the league.

2. I don't think he really fits well in the 3-4, and he would probably take Kruger off the field on 3rd down, which doesn't make much sense to me.

there's no way some crappy team will allow Babin thru waivers. He's 32 and a bit pricy maybe so there's a chance but I have to believe a desperate team will drop the cash like the Skins or someone.

McKInnie appears as if he will get the nod... he manhandles Harrison so it may be a good time to promote him.

Babin opposite Suggs is scary... especially the way that Krueger and Upshaw have been improving.... with Ngata pushing the pocket... If we could get a deal like that done- that could push us over the top!

I hope that Ben and Antonio and all the sqeelers play.... dont want no excuses this time around!

we don't even have cap room for babin but its a nice thought. Joe has a chance to shut everyone up manning brothers back to back . I mean beat them and beat them bad. Let your actions speak louder then there words.

I don't think Babin would be a fit for us at all. He's only ever had success playing in a 4-3, and more specifically than that, only in the Wide 9 defense and only when it's coached by Jim Washburn. We just don't need a 4-3 DE unless we completely change our scheme. It doesn't really matter though because as the article says, we don't have the cap space and he probably won't clear waivers.

I hope they go with Reid or Harewood at LG. It's worth it just to get one of those guys the experience, Bobby Williams clearly isn't a long term solution.

that'd be an expensive 3rd down rusher, we have issues stopping the run as it is (not so much as of late but if it ain't completely broken, don't worry too much about fixing it lol

Please don't sign Babin. There were questions about his effort in Philly and we don't need that type of player anywhere near our locker room.

Right now,I don't think we need him.Our guys have stepped up & the defense is jelling nicely. We need help on the offensive side.Somebody that can make better play calling & adjustments to the opponents defense.It seems that we make adjustments too late.

Sara, Sara, Sara,
Please, you have to stop printing negative news about our team. That article from Adam Schein was horribly bias. If someone was talking smack about you would you want it passed along to all of your friends and fans? There are so many naysayers out there you need to learn to ignore them. Please.

Babin could very well clear waivers, he is 32 years old, teams with losing records are not going to add a player over 30 halfway through a losing season. The only teams I see taking a shot at Babin are those who have a chance at a playoff spot, run a 43 defense, and of course, the need to boost their pass rush.

Maybe NE, they have been running a 43.

I don't like Reid at guard. Maybe he needs more time but if Harbaugh wants to put the best OL to win now then I would go with Harewood or Williams. I always thought the best OL we had was McKinnie, Osemele, Birk, Yanda, and Oher but I guess its too late in the season to try that.

Oh, and theres no chance for Babin.

I'm in agreement with heycuf that we don't need to add another piece to the Dee now that they are demonstrating that they are buying into Dean Pees and his ability to think on his feet quickly!

No sense sending a message that may be construed by the young Ravens that the coaches and FO lack confidence in them by bringing Babin in.

Let the kids continue to grow into their roles! Few great pass rushers make an impact right from the Draft!
