    If NO Fisher, then Billick?

    Brian Billick's record is 80 wins and 64 losses and 1 super bowl win. Another name that is getting alot of respect from players is Todd Bowles, the interim coach with Dolphins.

    I would not be one bit unhappy if Billick was hired however why wouldn't we give Chucky a kick on the 'ol tires?

    The St. Louis Post-Dispatch also reports ex-Ravens head coach Brian Billick is "not on the Rams' radar" as a fallback option to Fisher.
    Well I don't think that's looking likely

    Why is Billick never on anybodys radar? I always thought he was a great coach. But no team is going out of there way to interview him. Any problems?

    There must be something in his past / private life / or in his personality that just scares teams off. His performance was pretty solid at both Baltimore and Minnesota.

    Will be creating a long post shortly on some candidates if we lose out on Fisher, similar to my post earlier in November which everyone enjoyed.

    Personally, I am becoming a big fan of Todd Bowles.

    Re: If NO Fisher, then Billick?

    Two things I think have lead to Billick not being on the radar for many teams. First is the youth movement at the NFL coaching level. As the game changed in the past 10 years or so it seems that teams grew tired of older coaches who couldn't change with the times and therefor went with younger hotshot coaches.

    The second thing is that he's supposed to be an offense guy but during the years he was with Baltimore they never really scared anyone on offense. It could be that when people look at his success and his record they look past him and give his defensive coordinators the credit.

    When in Minnesota as OC, they scored the most points in the history of the league.
    His record is his record, it's pretty solid. The strength of a great coach is finding ways to win, not forcing your program on players that might not fit your program.

    I agree with you, the guy should at least get a mention. Just offering some reasons why people might not being him up. I also hear he's a bit arrogant and might be hard to deal with.

    According to Jim Thomas...

    League sources also tell the Post-Dispatch that former Rams head coach Mike Martz, who parted ways with Chicago earlier this week as Bears offensive coordinator, is not on the Rams' radar as a potential head coach. Neither is Brian Billick, former head coach of the Baltimore Ravens.

    I don't get why Brian Billick is never given much coverage by the media. For the most part, he ran a successful franchise with Baltimore. On TV, he seems like a very articulate person, knows what he's talking about. Yea maybe there is something we don't know that the inner circle in the NFL knows about. I'm guessing he demands top dollar too.

    Honestly though, how many coaches have been successful running multiple franchises? Mike Holmgren and Bill Parcels are the only ones I can think. George Seifert won a Superbowl with the Whiners then went on to be a disaster with the Panthers.

    Personally I prefer Fisher, I've always heard what a "genius" Billick was on offence but they were a disaster during his tenure at Baltimore when it came to scoring points. I also looked up the starting QB's he had while he was there and it was embarrassing to say the least. If he couldn't identify QB's as a head coach and O-coordinator guru, I wouldn't trust him to evaluate the rest of the team.
