Bye Bye Billick

brian billick onthebuzzer.comFirst sacrifice to the NFL gods has been made.  The Baltimore Ravens cut head coach Brian Billick.  The same guy that led them to a win in a Superbowl in 2001.  The same guy that led the Ravens to a 13-3 recordbrian billick onthebuzzer.com last season.  I guess a 5-11 performance as an encore wasn’t acceptable.  Look, I’m all for changes, but the Ravens’ problems run way deeper than Billick.  They don’t have a quarterback and don’t tell me Boller and McNair were injured or whatever.  Their defense is getting old and frankly, is a fraction of what they used to be in ’01.  Their play calling has always been suspect.  Even when they won the Superbowl, the Ravens were never putting up big points.  In the same division as Pittsburgh, Cincy and Cleveland, these guys have a lot of changes to make before going to camp next year.  Hopefully the new guy can right this ship.  Did someone say Bill Cowher???
