    Re: What does Billick need to do to stay on board?



    I'm not sure about Steve's patience, either. Like you said, time will tell.

    One other thing that could cause BB his job, which I forgot about, is breakdowns on the road like last seasons' game in Detroit. I think a game like that this season will make Brian's seat that much hotter.

    Anthing short of a winning season, and I think, the Ravens make a change. Although 8-8 might be enough to buy him another year, especially if we have another spat of injuries, just my opinion

    With people really starting to come around on this OL problem, I am starting to believe that we need to take a closer look at Ozzie at the same time we look at Billick. Our OL has lacked talent and that isn't Billick's fault. Blame him for locker room problems or lack of motivation. But don't blame him for being stuck with Mike Flynn and his giant contract.

    As for the OL, anyone who doesn't still believe the OL is the most important part of the offense need only to have watched the Steelers last night. The Steelers OL literally swallowed up the Miami defensive, even on blitzes. And they made Charlie Batch look like a freaking pro-bowler. I've never seen a backup QB chuck the ball downfield so much.

    Sting, while Ozzie may not value certain positions in the way we like there is no way he gets fired. We are at minimum one onf the 3 best drafting teams in the league. He also hired a coach that won us a Super Bowl. Ozzie has earned the right to hire the next head coach of this franchise (Kirk Ferentz).

    I still think that good and bad teams come and go, so if we hold onto Billick during the lean times it will probably come back around in his favor at some point.

I'm almost more worried about Oakland than the Bucs because of the team's penchant for waltzing into what should be easy games and losing.

    So, in an 0-6 scenario, does Billick make it past the Bye week. Does JF take the reigns?
    I can't see Billick getting canned midseason under any scenario that isn't some kind of sex scandal.

    If we start 0-6 Billick would be fired. However I can't even see that happening. Even in my worst dream

    I kinda think BB will stay regardless of whether we make the playoffs, and as Greg pointed out, how well the team composes itself. The meltdown in Detroit better not repeat itself, it would show that Billick is not in charge of his team.
    Even if BB goes, I'm not sure Fassel is the one Bisciotti would pick. Who would succeed him, Mariucci? Is there a better guy out there?
    I'm hoping that the team makes the playoffs and goes deep in them!

    Sting, while Ozzie may not value certain positions in the way we like there is no way he gets fired. We are at minimum one onf the 3 best drafting teams in the league. He also hired a coach that won us a Super Bowl. Ozzie has earned the right to hire the next head coach of this franchise (Kirk Ferentz).
    But are we GreenWave? To be honest, I think we need to see how Chris Chester, Dan Cody, Adam Terry, and Jason Brown work out first. Getting Ray Lewis and Jon Odgen was brillance. That was also now 10 years ago. Getting Todd Heap was brillance. That was 5 years ago. In the meantime the offensive line has been a chief concern since Leon Searcy went down, and we've goofed it up constantly with guys like Ethan Brooks (I'll never forget the 2004 Cleveland Game 1), Orlando Brown, Keydrick Vincent and picking Mike Flynn to stay at center over Casey Rabach. And then passing over guys in FA that at the least could have held our line in check while these rookies come up the system.

    In the meantime multiple quarterbacks get injured behind our offensive line, and we now have to RELY on Steve McNair to HOPEFULLY be able to beat blitzes every time.

    Ozzie has to take some responsibility for this. I realize it's an unpopular opinion to have, but I think Ozzie's gone blameless for the team's problems for way too long.

    Ozzie gets to many free passes. He has had not only his share of success but also some major clinkers. Besides, I think you must evaluate not only the drafts but the free agent acquisitions and that has also been spotty IMO. So I would rate him as slightly above average. My biggest beef is with the philosophy they hold, that any fat guy can be a lineman. As we have seen, not so!

    I think he has started on the right foot

    Yup. I'm glad my nightmare 0-6 scenario has been nixed!

    I think he'll be sleeping well tonight, as will the rest of the front office. And a whole slew of Ravens fans too!
