If he takes another coaching job doesn't Bisciotti have to pick up the difference between his new contract and the $5mill? So that Billick picks up the combined £5mill.
That is exactly how most of these contracts are drawn up, but it still means that if Billick took a job next year as a coordinator, for instance, he'd basically be working for free, because the Ravens will pay him his $5 million whether he gets another coaching gig or not.Quote:

Wow, then he must have been the luckiest guy in the world to win more games than he lost during those nine years, seeing how he's such a moron.
He won alot of games with a Great Defense.
He is an Offensive Coach and our Offense has been among the leagues worst ever since he has been here.
I give the Defensive coaches more credit for assembling his record, just like I would give the Offensive coaches in Cinci more credit for assembling a great Offense than Marvin Lewis.
Remind me again what the point of playing these games is?
I seem to remember it's to win them.
Do you think the fact that the talent on offense this team has had is among the worst in the league has anything to do with it's struggles?
What do you expect the Harbaugh/Cameron combo to do with this offense?
Do you think it's gonna be much improved even though it looks like the major components are gonna be the same?
It's amazing how some people wanna take away wins from a former coach who won a SB and had an overall winning record during a 9 year run.
I wonder what's gonna happen if we don't go 12-4 and win the division next season.
I bet some will still be blaming Billick.
Heaven forbid the players take some responsibility for their actual play on the field.
He's gone, who cares? Don't we have enough to think about with the Ravens without continuing to beat up the guy that's gone? The level of hostility directed towards Billick is unbelievable.
The "Anybody but Billick" crowd is in for a rude awakening come next September when we trot what looks to be almost the same offensive personnel out there that we did last year.
You can obviously give credit to whoever you want, but I think that's a seriously flawed point of view. Billick was the head coach, not just an offensive coach. The defense sucked before he got here. He got them to play like a team. He worked with three different DCs while here, and the defense was always good. People who whine about how it's all Billick's fault that the offense sucks but act like he's had nothing to do with the defense are just plain wrong.Quote:

I too think he'll sit out this year, but......if there is one guy who could get him back, it's possible that it's his brother-in-law (assuming they are still close, as was always reported when they were both here).
