OWINGS MILLS, MARYLAND (TICKER) -- A month after agreeing to a contract extension with Brian Billick, the Baltimore Ravens signed the coach to a four-year contract.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Billick has been the Ravens' coach for the last eight years and guided the franchise to a Super Bowl title in 2000.

Brian is a good coach and Baltimore was smart by keeping him around and Rex Ryan can continue to run the defense

Honestly I don't know how this guy is still considered in the top echelon of coaches. Basically he lives of a defense that he isn't exactly hands on with. In fact the best things he has done as head coach were continue to pick amazing D-Coordinators. Because for such an "offensive guru", his offenses during his tenure in Baltimore have been well below average.

he is a good coach and as last season moves prove he will fire a friend in order to help the team. he really saved the offense this year and seems to really listen to his players for input

i dont really think he is all that high on the coaches list. but i still think he is far from the worst coaches.

he has had great d cordinators during his time. how many coaches he had are now head coaches?

Yeah, like I said hie picks great coordinators. But Billick had little to do with those guys going on to be HCs. Those guys were great coaches before they got to Baltimore and they had great players to work with. Billick is way overrated in my opinion. His offense is consistanly bad and he threw his buddy under the bus this year for a problem that has been there for a while. And I'm not supporter of Fassell. I hate that guy.

I agree, I posted basically the same thing in the team discssion thread. But I hope we can bring in a great OC and get a offense going.

Actually I don't know the exact numbers, but my guess is this past year we were right around a top 10 offense and last year better than that. So please save use of the rolling eyes emoticon for people who actually know what they are talking about.

Yeah, he won a Super Bowl. And I feel like he is still getting contract extensions 7 years later because of it. As if Billick's offensive "genius" had much to do with winning that Super Bowl anyway.

Well all last season he was under fire and if the team didnt perform hed be gone. We won the division and had one of the best records in football so I guess the front office felt it was only right to extend his contract. When Billick took over play calling our team got alot better, So even if we dont put up 35 a game he still helped us get as far as we got. Plus hes a fan favorite so I really dont see whats so bad about him. I mean we are a defensive team. Thats what we do run the ball and play d. 13-3 is a good season in my book, I have nothing but praise for Billick.

Because for such an "offensive guru", his offenses during his tenure in Baltimore have been well below average.

Yes because a Giants' fan would know anything about offense or how to handle an offensive coaching staff........................ :roll:
Actually I don't know the exact numbers, but my guess is this past year we were right around a top 10 offense and last year better than that. So please save use of the rolling eyes emoticon for people who actually know what they are talking about.
Yeah he hasnt really done much for us. Except that time he lead us to the superbowl and we beat the giants Yeah that was nice.


But seriously I never hear him mentioned in the top echelon of coaches so I dont know what your talking about.
Yeah, he won a Super Bowl. And I feel like he is still getting contract extensions 7 years later because of it. As if Billick's offensive "genius" had much to do with winning that Super Bowl anyway.
You can't ignore what happened when he took over playcalling this season. He's a great motivator and his players typically like him alot because he's loyal and defends them, even though this comes across as abrasvie towards the media. Sure he has an ego, and sure he's not the greatest coach in the league, but he's a damn good one and I'm glad we resigned him. For me he's behind only Bill Belicheck and one or two others in terms of coaches in this league, but I'm a Ravens fan so I'm biased.

That was a very interesting book, I wish that John would write another one again. It was cool to read the stories of the players and all the interactions between the management, staff and players. The more I read it the more I liked Steve as an owner. I just wish he had spent less time on the personal history stories and games and more time on how they prepared, and whatnot.
