    RIP Dennis Green



    Sad to see Dennis Green pass away at 67. I still remember Brian Billick talking about how much he learned from Green and the impact it had on him deciding to play to the strength of the 2000 team, going to the dark side, instead of forcing the team to do something it couldn't. Green had an impact on the Ravens. He also had one of the greatest quotes in the history of the NFL.

    The Bears are what we thought they were. Th-they're what we thought they were. We played them in preseason. I mean, who the hell takes the third game of the preseason like it's bullshit? Bullshit! We played them in the third game, everybody played three quarters... the Bears are who we thought they were! Thatís why we took the damn field! Now, *hits microphone* if you want to crown them, then crown their ass! But, they are who we thought they were, and we let them off the hook!

    RIP Dennis Green. You were one of a kind and will be missed

    He may be remembered by Millennials more for that quote, but the man could coach his ass off. Even Randy Moss had the utmost respect for him.

    In 10 years with the Vikings he made the playoffs 8 times. That's a good solid run. He also produced 3 Head Coaches, Dungy, Tice and our own Brian Billick. I liked him. It's too bad they couldn't put it away in 98. Having your veteran kicker choke on a short one is brutal. If they had won that game they had a good shot to have beaten the Broncos in the Super Bowl.

    What a shame. He was one of a kind. Great coach.

    Well, it was 38 yards. Not exactly a chip shot, but yes, indoors and very makeable. What was remarkable about that miss was that Gary Anderson had not missed a FG all SEASON.

    I remember Billick's classic sideline quip in 2003 after Anderson, then with the Titans, secured the the wild card playoff win against the Ravens: "Now he makes it."

    Two of those coaches went on to win titles.
