Jordan Babineaux on Sirius NFL Radio


Posted Jan 10, 2007


With the kind permission of Sirius NFL Radio, Seahawks.NET is proud to present Seattle cornerback Jordan Babineaux’s Tuesday interview with Adam Schein and Solomon Wilcots on the "Afternoon Blitz" show. Free to all Seahawks.NET listeners, this interview is not to be missed, as “Big Play Babs” takes us through, among other things, the most important tackle he’s ever made.

At some point in his career, third-year defensive back Jordan Babineaux will become a free agent. When that happens, the Dallas Cowboys might want to seriously consider signing him to a very long contract, if only to keep him from playing them in the future.

Put simply, Babineaux is a Cowboy-killer.

In Week Seven of the 2005 season, it was his interception of a Drew Bledsoe pass with five seconds left in a game tied 10-10 which set up the winning Josh Brown field goal as the clock ran down to nothing. And in Seattle’s very wild, Wild Card win over Dallas last Saturday, a 21-20 thrillride, it was “Big Play Babs” who made the most important tackle in a game full of crucial stops, when he turned from potential blocker to lone tackler. Babineaux switched gears after Dallas quarterback Tony Romo bobbled the snap on Martin Gramatica’s 19-yard field goal attempt with just over a minute to play, and he stopped Romo just short of the first down at Seattle’s one-yard line with an all-effort ankle tackle.

The play showed just what kind of effort the undrafted free agent from Southern Arkansas puts into everything he does for the Seahawks. Whether it’s subbing for Michael Boulware at strong safety, or taking over the starting cornerback role with rookie Kelly Jennings when Marcus Trufant and Kelly Herndon were injured, or his great versatility in Seattle’s 2005 Super Bowl season, you’ll never see a time when this humble young man isn’t pushing himself to the very limits of his talent and potential.

On Tuesday, Babineaux was a guest on Sirius NFL Radio’s “Afternoon Blitz” show with Adam Schein and Solomon Wilcots. In a ten-minute interview, “Babs” talked about the play that decided the game, the experience of starting in the playoffs, what it will take from the Seahawks’ defense if Seattle hopes to upset the Bears in Soldier Field on Sunday, and much more.

This is a can’t-miss interview with a relatively unheralded player who has that special knack for being in the right place at the right time. And thanks to Sirius NFL Radio, we’re very proud to bring it to you, the Seahawks.NET listener!
