Ouch! When are you guys going to fire Billick. His ego is way bigger than his ability. Isn't he supposed to be an offensive genius?
I'd be an offensive genius if I had the teams he had while in Minnesota. Randy Moss, Cris Carter, Jake Reed, Culpepper, Robert Smith.
Some people have been calling for Billick's head for a couple years. But then we go 13-3 last year and win the division, and you gotta be like, "welp. It's pretty tough to have a better regular season than that." That and with the Super Bowl ring and the fact that we've had a good record in the playoffs under him.
Rant: OK. What I don't get is that we are a team that is all defense, that's what we've always been. Great, not good, defense, a running game and a 10 yard dink to a TE or possesion WR and that's how we play. Where does an "offensive genius" fit into that equation? You want to be an offensive genius? Get me Tom Brady and Randy Moss or Peyton and Marvin - I'll show you offensive genius.
edit: I'm not one who likes to make excuses, but
JackBurton - the Ravens 2 starting CB's, Rolle and McAllister were out and their backups, Ivy and David Patten both suck balls. The safties, Reed and Landry are awesome, but when a CB can't cover a WR to save his ass, and ends up losing his jockstrap on multiple plays, it's hard. You can see Santonio Holmes burn Patten, then Reed is already on some other coverage. Then they flash to Reed and he's all pissed and preaching to the choir.
