Why use haproxy now ?

I made a lot of reading and comparisons.

But I still cannot understand why, in 2013 and with the latest version of
nginx, we would still need haproxy in front of it.

Nginx has it all to handle high traffic loads + very good load balancer.

Could someone  help/explain what I am missing ? Even Varnish.. nginx can
cache too.

Absolutely not a fanboy, just someone trying to understand different
statements and why people want different layers when one seems enough.
