It seem that everybody wants to blame the players for coach getting fired and yes he does not catch, throw , tackle or run the ball, but he did not manage the game clock when it was crunch time . Coach Billick was known as an offense guru but it never showed up in Baltimore it is now seen as a waste of a draft pick with Kyle Boller when thing weren't going well he would not think about change instead he kept force feeding this town Boller and the like of. Getting Steve McNair was a good idea but what you got was a quaterback who was really in his last years as should to here to guide who ever is going to be the new starting quaterback. A lot folks in this town think that Troy Smithshould get the starting job an yes he does deserve a look but the last time I check it is about putting the best 11 players on the field on both side of the ball. Maybe he (coach Billick) will find himself another coaching job somewhere. Whomever come in to guide this team if the Ravens do not lose coach Ryan he had better keep the man who has had one of the better defences in the NFL. people in Baltimore womever comes in to coach this team give the coach and his staff a chance to put things together before you all start bad mouthing the decision .
