    I agree. The difference between Tulloch and Ruud is not much... just surprised Tulloch was a cheaper option.

    Neither appear to be good long term solutions, though I had higher hopes for Ruud.

    Again, the Eagles are retarded for not signing Tulloch. I can only name one of their linebackers (Casey Matthews) and he's been benched.

    what?

    I have video proof though.

    [ame="http://www.nfl.com/videos/auto/09000d5d822f59fd/Dwyer-hits-the-hole-for-big-gain"]NFL Videos: Dwyer hits the hole for big gain[/ame]

    Notice Babineaux after Dwyer gets to the 2nd level. It's almost as if he runs right by him. Then he turns around and starts chasing him which leads to him getting burnt by Dwyer and 2 teammates, one of which was finny who caught up to them from the other side of the field.

    That will be Dwyer's longest run of his career....Unless he faces Babineaux again.

    Thank you SureThing. You just proved that Babineaux was not standing right in front of Dwyer. It wasn't as bad as you made it seem...yes it was a bad play...but I don't think Babs could have reached his hand down Dwyers jock, like you love to do with RBs.

    I already called Babs out on this play in another thread. He did take a bad angle and should have made the tackle.

    What is a wrongest run?

    Looked like Babs thought he'd cut it back inside, but never did. Horrible job by him for sure, but Chris Hope has done the same thing so what can you do....

    He meant longest, the "w" and the "r" are very close to the "L" on his keyboard.

    What I proved was Babs is slow and takes bad angles. He's a liability out there. Not saying he isn't our best option, but the hype is ridiculous.

    Most people on this board get boners whenever a scrub like Babineaux gets a pick or fumble recovery. It's hilarious.

    Pretty sure almost everyone on our Defense has taken a bad angle at least once this year. They may not have got burnt for a TD, but it happens...you didn't really probe much boss.

    Babs is quicker than Hope, he may still be a liability in some areas, but he is starting for us. So forgive the ones who get excited when he makes a play for us. That's called being a fan. Tard.

    'I have video proof though'...

    Its called go to youtube and find fans in a stadium cheering a player making a play. Doesn't matter if its a pro-bowler, rookie or a scrub that is playing due to injuries. Fans support their team.

    Only Deuce gets boners for dudes. And we were all in favor of Babs from preseason, not that INT for a TD.

    I'd rather have Jamar Chaney over Ruud or Tulloch. At least he has good upside.

    No I didn't say a word on in the Babs / Hope discussion until a couple weeks ago. I knew Babs wasn't necessarily a complete upgrade over Hope, but I hope he can return to the form where he gets all the hype.
