Jason Babin Rips Eagles And Philly Media In First Jags Press Conference

Former Eagles defensive end Jason Babin has been in Jacksonville a few hours, but it only took him minutes to fire some unnecessary shots back at his former team.

Babin held his first Jaguars presser this afternoon, and according to Crossing Broad, lit into the Philadelphia media first, before ending with several subliminal disses at his former team.

Vito Stellino covered the press conference for Jacksonville and relayed most of Babin’s comments via twitter.  Here is a breakdown of most of his quotes.

Stellino: Babin met with press and said he is happy to be in Jax, impressed with practice and wants to be here long term. Of his image in Philly, he said he challenged the Philly writers to be professional. Said they asked loaded questions. Babin said of Eagles, “Things are kind of stagnant. They could ultimately get worse before they get better.” Besides loaded questions, not being professional, Babin said Philly writers didn’t tie shoes, wore shorts, had stinky breath.

Babin had a whole lot more to say, as he got several things off his chest.

Babin blame the team, and the scheme he played in for his lack of sacks.

“Sometimes individual stats are a culmination of team effort, even though an individual gets the accolades.”

He expressed his desire to help build Jacksonville into an up and coming winner, unlike the failing situation in Philadelphia.

“Things are stagnant [in Philly]. They can ultimately get worse before they get better. So being a part of something that is about to blossom is definitely an exciting feeling.”

Babin expressed his feelings on the fans and media bashing him as he exited the city.

“Well, if you don’t know Philly, that’s a little bit of endearment. That’s kind of the way they love. It’s like a backhanded compliment. The non-Philly person would look at it as mean cruel, but it’s a little bit of a sign of endearment. [When they say you’re surly?] It’s a little bit of their style, I guess.”

Finally Babin spoke about the Philadelphia media misrepresenting him.

“They got to find something to write about, right? There’s about ten-times them as there are you guys.”

Wow Mr. Babin where do I begin.  Is the situation in Philadelphia stagnant and falling apart?

Yes it is, but it didn’t start falling apart until the Eagles started chasing high-priced guys like yourself and Nnamdi.

I’m appalled by Jason Babin and have no more words.

To try to save face by suggesting the Jacksonville situation is one on the rise is ludicrous.

  • Why are you appalled? His comments were mild, to say the least. You’re just another of this generations waiting-to-be-offended class. Get over yourself.

    • Amen to that! I didn’t see anything in those quotes that should get your panties in a wad. I heard Babin on SiriusXM NFL just hours after being cut and he had nothing but good things to say about Philly and the team.

      Oh, by the way, I am “offended” that a site like BSO even exists. There, I said it. Now crucify me too!

  • Dude his comments weren’t bad at all. If anything he pointed out the obvious that its bad in philly and not gonna get better until the make changes. And then made light of the fans comments showing that he didnt take it personal. You are the reason that athletes hate the “media”.

  • “Yes it is, but it didn’t start falling apart until the Eagles started chasing high-priced guys like yourself and Nnamdi.” So it’s his fault the Eagles chucked a ton of money at him? He’s got the 3rd highest sack total since ’10, he should be paid like it.
    This is seriously the worst article I’ve ever read in my life. Writer twists his quotes to fit his viewpoint, but can’t even do that right. Then puts the mgmt’s mistake of overpaying for talent on Babin. Again, how it is his fault the Eagles wanted to give him more money? TERRIBLE, LAZY JOURNALISM

  • Funny thing I just noticed. ALL the ads on the site have white people in them. Weird.

  • as a philadelphian and eagles fan….i’ve got to say, i don’t see anything remotely offensive about babin’s comments. and obviously he has to comment positively about his brand new team, regardless of how optimistic he really may be.
