Super Bowl-Winning Coach Brian Billick to Join Ravens Ring of Honor
 

Former Head Coach Brian Billick will be inducted this year into the franchise’s Ring of Honor presented by Meritage Jewelers, Ravens Owner Steve Bisciotti announced Wednesday.

 

 

Why?  A guy who quit on the team twice?  A guy who ruined a SB ready team with the drafting and piss poor dev of Boller deserves to be in the ring?

What are you referring to when you say he quit on the team? I think BB was a critical part of changing the culture to a team that expected to compete and embraced success. At the very least he was smart enough to embrace and amplify the swagger of a Ray Lewis.

I would think a SB winning coach is a no brainer much less the first SB for the Franchise.

It has been well talked about over the yrs.  He told the team twice he had his money so they could do what they want.

It's true Brian wore out his message here but I do think he should go in the ROH. First Ravens Super Bowl win for the franchise gets him in.

Fans forget the times and what the organization was like before Billick.

They were an under achieving roster and poorly structured organization.There was a lot of hate and Billick was extremely loyal to Art Model. He took on all that hate to ease the pressure on the others.

He created a structure of accountability within the organization. He introduced technology where there was none.

He assembled great coaching staffs.Together they developed the personnel that they had to the max and assisted in fostering the swagger of those players into a team identity and group that consistently found ways to win.

Before Billie they consistently found ways to lose.

The Darkside...Super Bowl...yea...he's definitely belongs in the Ring.

The simple fact is, all this 22-year-old has done since entering the league is charm his teammates, win over his coaches, make spectacular plays, get better by the week and, oh yeah, win football games (now 7-2 in starts, including the playoffs). He has been a beacon in the community, with a natural joy about him and a positive energy you can see in the clips of his interactions with young fans at training camp.

I fully recall what it was like with Ted.  Art made a bad mistake firing Bill when he got here.  But really that foundation bill built in Cle flowered here in the yrs later.  Billick rode that foundation as well.

What foundation?

The one that gave us the 4-12 '96 season? The 6-9-1 '97 season? the 6-10 '98 season?

Yea...they looked like the Browns.

None of Bills coaches survived here.

Now...the inability for fans to obtain any information about the team and what was going on....that was probably Bills influence.

The one that left a coaching tree that spread around the league.  Many of Billick's coaching tree were guys Bill trained first.  Also the scouting dept was put together by him too.

There were none on the Ravens when Billick got here.

That's correct. and...He was a flop as a GM.

Phil was not a coach.

He's one guy. How does one guy suddenly become Bills Foundation that built the Ravens?

More than half of Billicks coaches came right from the college ranks the rest from the Bill Walsh tree. None worked under Bellicheat.

OK.  Was he not good as an assistant here?  Most everyone who was an assistant under Bill were bad HCs.  Doesn't mean they were not very good at coaching a position or side of the ball.

 

Also Pioli has been a very good GM.  I guess Ozzie was a total loser also.
