How was he for you throughout his entire time with you?

What is he like in the locker room and off the field?

Arguably the best rotational DT in the NFL. He deserved a shot to start but Corey Peters was just better. I've always been a huge fan of Vance's.

model citizen. Wasn't a leader in the locker room in the pros but was a team captain in college. Definitely a guy who believes in the team concept.

he is not better then Babs but he is better then Peters and Jerry


So far all we have done this season is upgrade the rb position and lose 2 solid defensive line players


Dimitroff got a couple more seasons before the house of cards start crumbling

with how much Babineaux played DE after week 6, idk if it is that crazy of an argument.

You could definitely make the case he was our best DT. Solid in the run game, and an excellent disruptor. His sack numbers don't tell nearly the whole story.

Also when Babs plays DT he is better too.

Peters 15 tackles
Babs 31 tackles
Walker 32 tackles

Peters 0 sacks
Babs 3.5 sacks
Walker 3 sacks

So there is an argument to be made there.

If my DT makes zero tackles throughout the game, i couldnt care less. Thats a pretty bad stat to use for DTs. And he got decent pass rush but i think Robertson can do just as much. Peters is one of the better run stopping tackles in the league.

Peters is the starter at the nose in our 43. He isnt going to rack up the numbers that our UTs will(Babs, Walker).

when healthy, I agree. But Peters wasn't fully healthy this past season..
