Babin says he 'got the s--- knocked' out of him on a cheap shot from the Bears(Getty Images)

This would go a long way in explaining why the Eagles defense refused to tackle anyone against the Bears Monday night, although there's still the issue of what happened the first five weeks of the season when, you know, the Eagles defense refused to tackle anyone. Either way, defensive end Jason Babin had some choice words for Chicago.

On Thursday Babin said the Bears, on a play in the second quarter, brought a tight end in motion and blindsided him. Babin thinks he was a defenseless player.

“I got the s--- knocked out of me,” he said, according to CSNPhilly.com. “I knew somebody hit me from the side and I didn’t know where it came from or who it was. To me it’s one of those plays, where somebody could get really hurt, especially if you’re running full speed and not looking.” Babin also said that it was an “intentionally called play.”

“If everything is about safety and protecting players, then that should definitely fall under the safety rules and regulations,” he said. “I saw it on tape and I was like ‘wow, they did that.’”

Babin says the Eagles talked to the league about the play in question, although we don't suspect much will be done about it. And that's because, in the league's eyes, defense is boring. The NFL arithmetic goes something like this: more offense means higher ratings which means more money.

“It’s one of those things where we don’t get any protection,” He said. “We just get in trouble for it.”

Ryan Clark has absolutely no idea what you're talking about, Jason.


After an overtime win over the Rams last week, the Arizona Cardinals hope to continue this week as they go up against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Join Jason Horowitz and NFL.com's Pat Kirwan as they preview this matchup.

So, Ryan Wilson, I read your post, but don't see the connection between what may or may not have been a dirty hit on Jason Babin and the Eagles tackling ability. Are you saying that Babin was too scared of being blindsided to keep focused on Matt Forte as he gashed their defense? Writing 101 tells us to start with a thesis statement, and then support that statement with the body of your blog. This looks more like somone that had a quote that he wanted to post, but really had no point to add to that quote. Pretty weak. Does CBS even read these things?

GUndam are you kidding me? ANy player that is not paying attention is going to get leveled. You don't hear the "defenseless" receivers compalining about hits. Babin shouldn't either, nor should he pick fights with an entire fan base. Get off Babin's sack

Babin says Bears played dirty on MNF

"WOW, maybe you should be aware of your surroundings. You are an idiot Babin and have no idea what you are talking about. You got your clock cleaned by Kellen Davis. You are a professional football player, so you need to learn the elementary idea of keeping your head on a swivle, and making sure nobody is about to lay you out...I play minor league ball and even I know that, as a running back or defensive end. Man up and just accept you got layed out. Even Ray Lewis has been layed out before, it happens to everyone. Get over it."



So.....does this go for every player on the field (DB, RB, WR, QB, etc etc) or just defensive players?  I guess what I am getting at is are you telling just Defensive players to get tough and stop crying, while WRs get to draw the flag for the same thing, or are you just saying everyone who plays pro ball needs to just play and man up?

Forget who is saying these things, but look at what they are saying.  The article actualy says the NFL could care less about defense, and that in most cases, defensive players are treated differently.  Paraphrasing, but that is the idea.

Essentially if you buddy pass your TE or WR or superstar RB, and he gets his block knocked off, we have a world crisis and Goodells Army of Zebras, flags and fine the shit out of that defensive player.

If the Offensive lineman or TE, low blocks (like shanahan's teams teach) or you blindside block a D lineman or DB (like Babin), then oh boo hoo Defensive side guy, you're tough so take it.



What in thee hell is that shit??!?!?


So you can be a brusier thug as long as you are blocking, but if you legally tackle a offensive superstar.....you get flagged and fined?

The best to hope for now is that Rodger  somehow gets caught at a strip club with pacman being the whistle blower.  Otherwise is the sissy football league for another decade at least.

Another Eagle whining after another loss, maybe they should look in the mirror instead of blaming others.

You guys are talking about Babin as if he's a heartless scrub. Grow a pair? P***y? He's one of only a few guys on the Eagle's D who has played with a set of balls this year and he's 4th in the NFL in sacks. But I agree, he should just shut up and keep his complaints in-house, the Eagles have more drastic concerns than 1 "dirty" play, namely their 3-5 record.

“I knew somebody hit me from the side and I didn’t know where it came from or who it was. To me it’s one of those plays, where somebody could get really hurt, especially if you’re running full speed and not looking.”
You think he has any problem with hitting the qb the same way? Is this guys serious. Keep you head on a swivel son and go play some ball. Or don't play either stop crying one more loss and the dream becomes a nightmare...

Oh for crap's sake, grow a pair, Babin.  The Eagles lost and you're crying.  If it was a dirty play, dictator-for-life Goodell would have been handing out fine left & right.  Instead, the only fine was because of a pair of orange shoes.  Maybe next time just make the damn tackle and stop making excuses.
