Re: Brian Billick: This Year's First Coaching Casualty

I agree with Matty. This guy has underperformed for years. They have had the league's most consistently inept offense and he was brought in as an offensive guru.

No surprise knew that one was coming, after last year I thought he would be gone. He just couldn't find the right QB.

Re: Brian Billick: This Year's First Coaching Casualty

for someone that was anointed an offensive genius when he was in Minnesota, his Baltimore teams were/ are big time under achieving. long over due

Re: Brian Billick: This Year's First Coaching Casualty

Part of his problem was that, in the year they won the SB, Billick played the "Everyone hates us and it's us against the world. So F*** the world." Eventually, that just became a way to blame the team's shortcomings on someone else - the refs, the media, other teams, etc. It was never Billick's or his player's fault. Eventually, you could just see the players saying "hey, it's not my fault we suck, I'm a superstar".

Billick created a culture where personal accountability and team accountability ceased to exist. When things took a bad turn, instead of pulling together, the team fell apart and, as a team, the players just didn't have any heart. IMHO - that was all Billick.

Re: Brian Billick: This Year's First Coaching Casualty

80-64 with the Ravens through 9 seasons with a SB. Not too shabby at all, but geez what an insufferable prick the guy is! An immediate future in broadcasting perhaps? He can continue to annoy the pi$$ out of everybody!

Re: Brian Billick: This Year's First Coaching Casualty

He needed to go. I heard on ESPN that they went around and asked the coaches and players whether Billick had lost them or if they still had faith that he could get it done another year and an overwhelming amount of them said that Billick had lost them.

Ravens need a new coach, restructure things a little and try again next year.

Re: Brian Billick: This Year's First Coaching Casualty

We should absolutely hire him immediately.

To follow Coach Gibbs around and see how a class act handles himself.

He was doomed by losing that Dolphins game. Saw this one coming a mile away.

On Comcast they were talking about asking permission to talk to both of Washingtons coordinators.
