    Of course, it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch!

    Have you heard of the Skins, Falcons, or Dolphins even contacting Billick for an interview when they were doing their searches? I haven't. If you talk to other people around the country, you get the feeling that Billick really isn't thought of too highly outside of Bmore. He's arrogant, and his offense has been lousy for 9 years. He'll milk his free $15 mil, and then most likely get into broadcasting.

    Billick as OC under HC Fassel would be hilarious though.

    Especially if he gets fired during the bye week.

    For all of you Billick bashers please name one talented player that he didn't get the most out of?

    He did the best with what he was given.

    Billick will get a shot next year. Why would he throw away $5 million of free money to be a HC this year?

    Billick has a winning record, a Super Bowl and his is highly thought of around the league by his former players. Compared to some of the retreads that come and go he is head and shoulders above.

    He was given Derek Anderson.. didn't make the most out of that talent, did he?

    LMAO, could you imagine DA behind our o-line with our receivers? He's a jump ball thrower, and if receivers don't have seperation he'll throw it into triple coverage. Besides he was given Anderson and Ozzie took him away.

    Billick's name was floated as OC candidate with the 49ers, Rams, Redskins, etc. I think he was turning them down for a 1 year paid vacation. That way he gets rested, gets his duck in line, and is one of the top guys available next year.

    We all talk about John Harbaugh not so much being an offensive or defensive genius, but being a great motivator and leader. I think likewise of Billick. As an OC, he stunk. As a leader, he was better than he gets credit for. Yes, the message got stale and all things like that, but I think he still got most of the players to play better than they would've under other coaches. Harbaugh has similar qualities, so I think we'll see something good here.

    Billick will get a job somewhere else...could be in college, could be in NFL, but I don't see him never getting a coaching job again.

    No. But why would they? Did anyone contact Cowher heading into this year?

    If BB has *any* sense, he will take some time off the grind, and will come back on his terms. By most standards - winning seasons, playoff appearances, SB wins - he was a good coach, and will get attention when he throws his hat into the ring.

    Those of you who think 'high flying offense' is an important factor in deciding your next head coach, consider Exhibit A: Bill Belichick, HC for the Cleveland Browns. He turned out ok with his next gig, didn't he?

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    I think BIllick will get another offer when he's ready to come back. Right now, I'm sure he's still licking his wounds from this fiasco. I just hope he's as smart as Belichick was in making adjustments because Belichick was a total asshole in Cleveland and was universally disliked. What Billick needs to take away from this experience is to watch his back, forget about being a "players coach" because it won't help you, don't trust players or management because they will turn on you in a heartbeat.

    If a coach wasn't doing his job he should have been fired long before.
    Fassel ran billicks offense not his own.

    That 7-9 team was much more talented than the local and national media gave them credit for. We had 3 pro bowlers in '02 and 8 in '03 plus made the playoffs. I'm not buying billicks bluster of how bad the roster was after the cap purge. If you do that's fine. There was an infusion of young talent brought in buy Ozzie and the staff and the short turn around after the purge bears that out.

    Billick done some good things in Baltimore but I don't think his record is on par with the talent he had through out his tenure. If you do that's O.K.

    Not that I'm a Billick basher but he clearly didnt get the most out of Priest Holmes. In fact because he didnt get the most out of him they went out and spent a first round pick on Jamal.
