Eagles Babin says fans directed "vile" chants at players, families last week

Up in arms over "some of the most vile" chants.
Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Babin hasn't endeared himself to critics upset over his production or Twitter requests for Eagles fan loyalty.

But Babin isn't about to hide the rage he still feels over what he called "a section of fans chanting some of the most vile things" he's ever heard, and directing it at coaches with wives and children around in the team's last game.

"I just thought there's no place for that in the NFL," Babin said Thursday. "None whatsoever. I mean just some of the foul things they were saying. Yeah, I'm going to be protective of Coach Reid, Coach Wash (Jim Washburn) and my teammates. It was upsetting that a few bad apples were chanting that kind of stuff. But what are you going to do."

Babin wouldn't divulge what was so vile just that "It's way past bad. It's foul.

"I don't even want to repeat what I heard," Babin said. "It's that bad. And I've got a pretty high threshold for adult jokes."

Babin leads the Eagles with 2 1-2 sacks but hasn't dropped a quarterback in four games.

To juice up the pass rush Brandon Graham said he's slated to split snaps with Babin.

The target Monday is Drew Brees. The Saints' quarterback has been sacked just 13 times in 315 attempts, the fifth-lowest sacks-per-pass play ratio in the league.
