    Come one braven, we all know Billick by now. He would never do that. Remember one thing he is extremely good at is PR. A good PR person never, ever burns bridges, especially in this profession.

    That would be interesting . . . . Collingsworth and Billick. Collingsworth has never, not once that I can ever remember said anything good about the Ravens.

    I know I'm in the minority here, but I'm going to miss Billick and his "coach speak". I always got a giggle out of it. What really amused me was watching the meltdowns because people couldn't understand what he was saying or thought he was speaking down to them when that was just the way he talked. I've never seen people get so upset because a coach never threw anyone under the bus. I kinda admired him for that

    That is something that has pissed me off for a while.

    I don't understand why they gloss over so many games...I will sit there and watch the highlights of the most boring game with the 2 worst teams in the league before I will watch those bozo's blabber on about crap nobody cares about. I remember during Jamal's 2000 yard season, we went 10-6 and they may have shown 6 of our games that year

    I fell in love with the show in the late 80's and 90's because of the highlights...Nick and Len were there just to move the show along and they did a nice job of that. These guys...including Costas, think this show is all about them.

    Bring back those highlights...by far the best produced week in and week out.

    Billick and Collingsworth on the same set would be very interesting, IMO -- would the room be big enough for both of their egos?
    Probably not... but it will, would not take BB long to crush his ass, and run him off the show! We would shortly find out that Collinsworth's ego has no basis!!

    If Billick were added, and one or more of the jock stiffs were dropped, I would be interested in watching it again -- as long as Ravens highlights were included.
    Mista T, I certainly agree with you about the degradation of Inside the NFL with the inclusion of all these cute sideshows I couldn't care less about at the expense of the highlights. When Nick Buonoconti and Len Dawson were there, I never missed a show. But haven't you noticed that the changes started when that little jerk Bob Costas took over as host? It has been all downhill from there.

    Re Cris Collingsworth. Gotta disagree with you there. I like him. He makes me laugh, and I find he has good insights. LadyRaven said that she has never heard him say anything good about the Ravens. I have. Near the end of last season, when everyone else picked against the Ravens, he said that he felt this team had a good chance to go all the way. Well the Ravens let him (and us, of course) down. In the coming season, the Ravens will have to go a long way to get him to stick his neck out again, probably.

    Drkraven, I'm with you about missing Billick. I just liked to hear him talk, and enjoyed his use of the language etc. If he's going to be on TV, I'm going to be watching him.
