Jason Babin’s Wife and Reuben Frank Exchanged Twitter Jabs Last Night

Screen Shot 2012-10-08 at 11.19.41 AMI feel his pressure. I don't know if it's on the quarterback, but, ahhmmm! I feel it.

I’m not sure how this started, or why. But here’s what we know: At around 10 p.m. last night, when most of us were tuned in to Sunday Night Football or the Phillies MLB Playoffs, CSN’s Reuben Frank and Jason Babin’s defensive wife, Sara, exchanged a few shots on Twitter.

Unless there was a Tweet deleted somewhere along the way, it seemingly started when Sara took exception to something Frank wrote about Jason and his defensive line mates. Perhaps this, a confusing retweet questioning Babin and Trent Cole: [Frank only wrote "we have been"]

Or this, in his article about the Eagles defensive line failing them:

The Eagles’ biggest disappointment has been the absolute inability of this highly-touted defensive line to take over football games. To take quarterbacks out of their comfort zone. To get to quarterbacks and sack them. It cost them again Sunday. Zero pressure. Zero pressure early, zero pressure late. 


Whatever it was, Sara didn’t take kindly to the mild – and fair – criticism of her husband, who has two and a half sacks in five games. She tweeted at Frank (which was later favorited by her husband):

Nice, invoking the woman thing and (incorrectly) accusing Grilled Reuben of not knowing much about football.

Frank, always fiery, um, fired back. Twice:

That’s all. Show’s over. But Sara seemed completely out of line and overly sensitive about what I thought was a fair critique– if the Eagles are only going to rush four and refuse to blitz, then Babin et al. need to step it up a bit.

Of course, it’s not the first time the Babins have gotten all butt-hurt over something written on the interwebtuals. Last year, Jason, his PR person and myself went back and forth over Babin’s whining about guaranteed contracts. Babin couldn’t understand why the common folk were irked by his irrational insistence that NFL players needed job security, something that almost no other profession offers. That squabble is over now, so no sense in rehashing it. But we’ll continue to wish that the Babins would just stop being so sensitive… and, you know, maybe sack someone.

  1. what a perfect white trash whore, i’m guessing but im 100% sure Whore Babin has a lower back tat and a sweet ankle tat of a rose

  2. I heard babin has a tribal tat tramp stamp.
    BTW I wouldn’t mind sticking my dick in mrs babin’s ah

  3. Sara needs to shut the fuck up and get back in the kitchen because she clearly doesn’t know a goddamn thing about football since her hubby and his mates on the defense came up woefully short and were unable to stop Pittsburgh when it counted. And if I’m Jason, I’m watching film of Matthew Stafford and Detroit instead of wasting time tweeting after getting butthurt over something a beat reporter wrote about. Pathetic!

  4. Hhahahaha her man lost a step & she can’t take it. Taking it out on reporters. Hahahahahhaha eagles are a joke Hahahahahhaha

  5. Holy shit, Kyle. Look at these comments and seriously ask yourself why everyone thinks Philadelphia sports fans are classless scum. You shitheads make us all look bad and are the reason no one in the media can let go of the Santa incident.

  6. The babin’s are pos people. They should take lessons from the Dorenbos’s on class. How I miss the eagles teams from the early 2000s who had personality

  7. I miss babin & cole’s fake arrow after sacks but in all fairness Eli & rapist big Ben get the ball out in 2 seconds flat

  8. Guy who reads the site posted a link on his Facebook wall, and made the comment “brilliant piece” (it wasn’t, but I thought it was a funny phils recap). He is friends with Reuban and Reuban commented “no offense to whoever wrote it, but that’s hardly brilliant.” just thought it was a little uncalled for from a guy who has been toiling around as a b-list writer for years and can’t seem to write anything other than regurgitated press releases with no real insight or opinion and only now got a position serving as r diddy’s skid mark at csn.
    That’s it

  9. This is the Eagles in a nutshell: They think nothing is wrong even when they lose (Vick said he had a “great” game despite the offense only scoring 14 points), and they are just completely clueless when it comes to PR, specifically Twitter. Kudos to Roob for firing back.

  10. hey..does anybody know if Roob is dating Sarah Baicker the hockey girl..I was trolling Roob’s facebook and he has a ton of pics of those two hanging out..he has gotta be at least twice her age and four times her size

  11. Dude rube always fires back at any1 who comes at him on twitter. He gave me the business before but at least he didn’t block me like that loser Sean brace

  12. Does Roman Gabriel still hold the NFL record for most fumbles ?
    “Stairway To Heaven”….slow ballad buildup to big climax.
    Eagles-Steelers….slow plodding and Vick didnt put it in.
    Philly Fans are the most knowledgeable fans, therefore we can be the most sarcastic, caustic and jaded fans on the planet.

  13. Who it be??!!!!!??????
    What it be???!!!!!????
    It’s your boy the godfather with your Monday night selection!!!
    Coming off a 1000* win on the saints!!!!

  14. Reuben anally molested me in 2010 and still hasn’t bought me the Dave Matthews Band box set like he promised.

  15. This just shows that Twitter/Facebook are widely used by people with nothing better to do. Roob is an Eagles analyst. His job is to analyze the Eagles’ play, be it poor or not. These athletes make millions of dollars to play a damn game. God forbid someone says something about their poor play or the fact that they can be neutralized. Babin’s ridiculously ugly and flaunting tatoo on his arm and the fact that him and Cole show-off after a sack or tackle for loss (which, when was the last time we saw that?) even if they are losing, tells you everything you need to know about their character. This type of pointless nonsense shouldn’t be a surprise. Just like their play shouldn’t be as long as Andy Reid and Marty are the coaches.

  16. Babin should have spent more time working out in the offseason and less time adventure seeking. He should take some notes from J.J. Watt – 26 tackles (20 solo), 8.5 sacks vs Babin’s 12 tackles (11 solo), 2.5 sacks and a whole lot of drama and bad tattoos. Maybe Houston would take Babin and Asomugha for Watt. We could even throw in Babin’s wife and her poop stained thongs (as suspected by Candy from the Oak).

  17. Might someone indulge in an intelligent conversation with me?
    There has been much “to do” about the rotation of defensive lineman that the Eagles have, but has this concept ever been proven? Could it be a similar case to that of running backs, where a player often performs better if he is allowed to get into a rhythm?
    While I certainly make no excuses for them, I’m just wondering if this might have something to do with it.
