Yeah, let's not bash a guy for allowing a player that later turned into one of the best 3-4 outside linebackers in the league get away for nothing.
It's more short-sightedness on Pioli's part. Meanwhile, the guy would have been far better than Vrabel opposite Hali but damn! I just remembered: Pioli traded for Vrabel, which made Babin expendable.
Yeah, that's not on Pioli, at all.
