Though he's now a Jaguar, Jason Babin still harbors significant hostility toward the Eagles, who surprisingly released him last month.
Made available to the media Wednesday, Babin didn't hold his tongue. The defensive end touched on a variety topics, including his time in Philly and their "socialistic" organization.
For the former, Babin intimated that he just never jived in the City of Brotherly Love.
"They have a different approach and a different style than I do," Babin said, via Adam Caplan of The Sideline View. "It’s upsetting because they knew what they were getting when they hired me. I don’t know if they were going to try and change me. My stripes are kind of already the way they are, the way I practice, aggressive, loud, the way I play the game.

With all the questions and wondering if Nick Foles will be starting for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013, the answer may be that there will be nobody else available who is better. First, let me say that the following is not an indictment of Foles in any way, it’s simply a logical look at possible alternatives. I’m not saying the Eagles need to find someone else nor am I saying...
I thought guard Evan Mathis and kicker Alex Henery might have avoided the shutout... But no, not unless they get into the Pro Bowl as alternates.
It's no big whoop as far as the actual NFC vs. AFC All-Star Game in Hawaii goes. I don't even watch the game. I just watch the pregame features, maybe catch an isolated series of plays if our guys are involved.
But I can...
The party is almost over for the 2012 incarnation of the Philadelphia Eagles and major changes are on the horizon. Though some folks might be glad to just get this sad season over with and don’t really care what happens this Sunday, there are still angles to root for this week.
Which of these sounds most like you?
#1. Michael Vick gets one last chance to start.
After a spectacular...
He was brushed off by Philly fans ready for a change, but since Donovan McNabb left, the Eagles haven’t been very good. Furthermore, McNabb’s legacy’s stock just rose a few points in the credibility department.
Always looked upon as the quarterback who couldn’t, who blew chunks in the huddle of the Super Bowl. Now, the Eagles just blow chunks no where near the playoffs...

So with Eagles rookie QB Nick Foles ruled out for the final game of the season with an injury, we're left with a pretty incomplete resume to determine if he should be The Man in 2013.Now, first and foremost, let's just state that, for the record, there will be no such thing as The Man in Philadelphia next year. This team needs upgrades at well over a dozen...
In a move that took about two months longer than it should have, the Jacksonville Jaguars have finally placed running back Maurice Jones-Drew on season ending IR. Of course, the season was going to end in three more days for the Jaguars to begin with, so this move means very little.
A season that began poorly ended even worse for Jones-Drew and the Jaguars. After a lengthy contract...
Don Banks of Sports Illustrated is reporting that the Jaguars are ready to cut loose GM Gene Smith, as well as first-year head coach Mike Mularkey, following the end of the season.
“The Jaguars have been gearing up to part ways with general manager Gene Smith for weeks, and recent signs point to head coach Mike Mularkey also being out after just one defeat-filled year on the job...
