Coach Holmgren “Didn’t Want” Jason Babin

30 Nov

With the Seahawks upcoming game against Philadelphia, Eagles defensive end Jason Babin explained on profootballtalk.com that he was treated badly by the Seahawks during his brief stint in Seattle in 2007. Babin noted that a disagreement between then G.M. Tim Ruskell and head coach Mike Holmgren affected his playing time and relationship with the organization. “It’s not easy going to a new place… and have your head coach tell you ‘Oh, I didn’t want you.'” says Babin, who signed a big contract with he Eagles in the offseason after establishing himself as a premier defensive end with the Tennessee Titans. Babin clearly still holds a grudge against the Seahawks and it will be up to Russell Okung to make sure Babin does not take his frustrations out on Tarvaris Jackson.

BRIEF NOTES:

  • I love when we play on national television because whichever channel is airing the game, at least a quarter of their total coverage during the week is dedicated to the Seahawks. NFL Network has aired more interviews, game highlights, and analysis of the Seahawks in the past 3 days than I have seen on ESPN this entire season.
  • The Thursday Night Football crew has arrived safely in Seattle. Tomorrow at the VMAC a production meeting will take place between the commentators and the team, while the set construction crew will set up the broadcast booth and on-field tents for the NFL Network broadcast.
