    Ravens fire Billick after disappointing year

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/7621108

    The team fired their head coach Monday, FOXSports.com has learned, capping an extremely disappointing season.

    This comes one day after FOX Sports reported that the players and other employees informed team owner Steve Biscotti that Billick had completely lost the locker room and could not win them back.

    Billick was hired as an offensive guru but during his tenure it was his defenses that won for the Ravens, especially their Super Bowl title. Over time Billick was unable to get his QBs to star and his offenses stalled year in and year out.

    Earlier this year he proclaimed that he had been given the vote of confidence from Biscottit but that was never confirmed and was obviously not true.

    I wonder where he will land next year?
    Maybe he will be with the Dolphins?
    Four score and seven years ago, Brad Childress has brought upon this team, a west coast offense, conceived in San Francisco, and Dedicated to be a Kick jiggly butt offence. We are now engaged in an NFL season, testing weather that offense can get going or that our defense can long endure.

    In defense his Offense has been horrible year in and year out. Which is to bad they have some decent talent on their roster.
    another reason why a defense can only carry a team so far.
    Billick as the OC here? I would n't say yeah lest do it, but I would not be against it either.

    Not sure about having him as a HC but I'd consider having him back as the OC again. Then again there could be too much of a clash between him and Childress so guess it would never happen.

    Re: Ravens fire Billick after disappointing year

    Whats his Madden rating?

    Seriously though.
    I am not so sure any HC (I know it has been done) would work good with another ex-HC is on his roster especially for a team he who's staff he used to be on.

    I had to come onboard a ship one time as a guy got in trouble over something.
    Needless to say he had to stay onboard for 2 weeks to complete a turnover. It was ugly.

    Needless to say Old Marrdro came into play many times. Again, bad idea IMHO.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
