JASON BABIN CALLS TRASH TALK "ENTERTAINMENT"
Every NFL game has its share of trash talk, but doesn't it always seem like there's a little more when NFC East teams get together?
And that's likely to be the case on Sunday in Philadelphia when longtime rivals Giants and Eagles go at it.
Philadelphia defensive end Jason Babin addressed the anticipated trash talk that will get spewed between the teams Sunday, and said that for him it's fun stuff that doesn't affect how he plays.
“Everybody gets all worked up about trash talk but it is what it is — it’s talk . . . You ask any player, honestly, if trash talk’s gonna affect how hard they play, because if a little trash talk affects how hard they can play, it just lets us know that they were holding back or weren’t playing harder or as hard as they could. Trash talk’s what it is — it’s entertainment. We’re in the entertainment business, so I think it’s all fun.”
As for whether the Giants are Babin's most hated team in the division, he told ESPN New York that: “I don’t ever use the word hate unless we’re talking about terrorists, but we definitely look forward to playing them in a prime-time game.”
