Looks like the only HC jobs that would be available to him are jobs he has no desire to take. He interviewed with Buffalo, but it doesn't sound like he's interested in that situation. You guys could sign him and probably keep him for 3 years. He'd have a chance to work with a dynamic offense, pad his resume, and show the league he's still an offensive genius (like he was in Minnesota). It makes sense for him since there aren't very many places he could go that will have the talent that Pitt has. The only downside is he'd only be using the Steelers as a spring board for a HC job, but 3 years is an eternity in this league. Any thoughts on this matter?

I could really seem Tomlin and Billick getting along famously. Two brutally honest guys with a lot of confidence. But perhaps the strong play of the Steelers to close the season has saved BA's job.

Listen D-bag...I've taken about enough of your chit. I come here respectfully and I post constructive on-topic things about the Steelers. I was in Syracuse for the last two weeks yesterday was my first day back in the office. I purposely did not post yesterday knowing what the perception would be. Now contribute or **** off.

Billick is a blowhard, and way too enamored with the sound of his own voice and resume, to take a lowly OC job.

What's a better career move for him...taking a HC job in Buffalo where he will likely lose...or taking an OC job in Pitt where they will likely make him look good? There really aren't any attractive coaching jobs available to him right now...I can definitely see him taking an OC role. The only thing I could see is him liking his analyst job too much.

Why would he have to take any job right now?? He is not going back into coaching as a coordinator. He thinks too highly of his mother's son to do that.

Ravins won Superbowl in spite of their offense, didn't they? Wasn't Billick the HC long enough to put his guru status on display and get good players, or develop them?

I think he was considered a guru because he was lucky enough to coordinate an offense with Cris Carter and Randy Moss to throw too. Just my opinion, but......think I have as much evidence as you.

He may not had a QB but who needed one with Carter, Moss, Reed and Robert smith. They made three sorry QB's look like HOFers(George,cunningham and Culpepper)

Billick's offensive schemes were hampered by Ozzie Newsome's inability to provide his HC with decent WR's and a capable QB. He went heavy on the D and thought the run game and clock management would be good enough. Billick fired Fassel in 2006 after a 4-2 start and took over full play calling duties. Using the same playbook that Fassel had developed with minor tweaks he vastly improved the Ravens scoring and finished out 9-1. He may not be the genius he looked like in Minnesota, but the guy is better than people give him credit for in Baltimore.

I would like to see Billick on the Steelers coaching staff..the only reason people are saying they don't want him there is because he's an ex-ratbird. I could see him doing big things with our offense and all the weapons we now have..and plus, anybody is better than Bruce Arians. Beggers can't be choosers.

I'd take Billick any day of the week. I've watched and read articles on him and have heard other coaches on certain shows call him an offensive genius. He was the OC with the 1998 Vikings. In Baltimore, he never really had a QB. If he came here he would have weapons a plenty. Could care less if he coached for the Ravens. Hes available, hes smart and knows offense. Why the hell not? With all that said, it was wishful thinking and he wont be the OC of the Steelers.

SteelerRush
01-05-2010, 07:39 PM
I watch Billick on TV and I think he breaks down the offense very well. But I also think Ron Jaworski does a good job breaking down offenses but I wouldn't hire him as an OC. My point here is all the years he was coaching the Ratbirds there offense was not good. We never feared their offense like we feared the turnover ability of the Defenses. I don't think Billick was very good with developing quaterbacks either and that is were we need to keep moving forward with BB. We need a OC who can work with BB and help him to continue to develop. :imho:

I heard an interview this morning with Brian and he said he hasn't been contacted yet by the Bills but he would be interested. So I'm not sure where he interviewed and isn't interested came from.

I think there's about as much of a chance of him being the Steelers OC as there is Cowher becoming the ST coach for the Steelers.

I hope Brian doesn't go back to coaching, I didn't like him at all when he was coaching the Ravens but I really like him as an analyst.

Billick is an investor in a radio station in Baltimore...one of the sports talk guys said that from what he and Billick discussed, Buffalo was far from an ideal situation for him. To me, whoever takes that job will fail. Billick is too smart to take a HC job that will make him look bad.

And conversely...if he didn't have Ray Lewis and company during his stay with Baltimore his defense wouldn't have been as good.

I find it odd that so many educated fans completely overlook personnel and assume that an "offensive guru" should be able to produce with whatever talent is on the field...then in the next breath completely dismiss that person's accomplishments because they had the personnel one year. I'd really like to see a list of "offensive gurus" that put together high-powered offenses without a decent QB or capable WR's.

There are OC's that aren't HC material. Then you have Billick who had a winning record as a HC and lead one of the most prolific offenses of all-time as an OC. What exactly is your point. Doesn't seem like you have one. Don't let your brain overheat trying to make sense here.

I dont think anyone is arguing that at all. We aren't talking abotu him as an HC, just an OC. Give the man weapons (he would have more here than he had in Minne) and his offense is tough.

I mean lets be serious, they talent he had in Baltimore was more "talent" than anything else.

I'd rather have Weiss, but at this point it looks more like B.A. will be back anyways.

There are indications former Baltimore Ravens head coach Brian Billick is in the process of putting together a coaching staff to join him in Buffalo, even though Billick said on the NFL Network Monday "I've not had contact with the Bills as of yet". Ch2 Sports Director Ed Kilgore has learned from an NFL source that Billick contacted Jacksonville Jaguars assistant head coach/tight ends coach Mike Tice about the possibility of joining Billick if he is named head coach of the Bills. This begs the question "is Billick putting the cart before the horse" here? We'll find out shortly, as several media outlets report the Bills plan to contact Billick about their head coaching job very soon.
