When Jason Babin left the Eagles, he had nice things to say about coach Andy Reid.
A little time has passed, though, and now Babin, who landed with the Jaguars, is talking about life with the Eagles as if Reid’s mustache was styled to make him look like the second coming of Joseph Stalin. Babin was talking about his departure from the Eagles during a conference call with reporters from Tennessee and gave his thoughts about the way they handled him and former defensive line coach Jim Washburn during their stint with the Eagles.
“You saw how dirty they did [Washburn] with leaking out the false stories and the way they talked about him on the way out. It’s kind of a big socialistic system that they have. I didn’t really care,” Babin said, via Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. ”They have a different approach and a different style than I do. It’s upsetting because they knew what they were getting when they hired me. But I don’t know if they were going to try and change me.”
Many would argue that cutting a pass rushing specialist who wasn’t doing a good job rushing the passer in order to use your resources on players more likely to help you win is actually a capitalist approach to things, but it’s probably best not to delve too deeply into a player saying he didn’t know how he’d be treated on an Andy Reid Eagles team after previously playing for an Andy Reid Eagles team earlier in his career.
