Gee, that's funny I seem to remember Billick banning the 2000 team from saying the word "playoffs" until they had officially clinched (while Harbaugh goes on MNF talking about dynasties and multiple championships). I also remember Billick sending McAllister home from San Diego before a game vs. the Chargers (something Harbaugh did not do in Miami).<quoted text>
More accurate to say Billick never adjusted to coaching a veteran team which did a good job policing itself, to the post-Super Bowl squads which lacked similar veteran presence in the locker room. That said, it is nice to see today's veterans like Ray Lewis have bought in to the new regime. One of the reasons why we have likely seen the last of McAlister-- talented guy and better than whoever will take his place next season, but cannot get his head around the fact Harbaugh the new sheriff in town.
But if everyone's world makes sense if they can blame Brian Billick for every short-coming the Ravens ever had, who am I to spool the party with facts and reason?
