Billick Fired By Ravens

9 posts in this topic

Who wouldn't mind him pacing the sidelines wearing the purple and gold again??? Chilli needs to go, and I say either Schottenheimer or Billick, or set a sweet check in front of Vermeil, and I bet he'd come out of retirement (again)

He isn't a terrible head coach, when having a halfway decent QB (Dilfer) he won a Super Bowl. Having 4 diff starting QBs in one season, one being an aging McNair doesn't help your team.

who's the better qb, dilfer or jackson? i was unfortunate to see most of the 49ers games this year, and dilfer is BAD. he seems like the nicest guy in the league, but he is not good. there as got to be a coordinator out there who would be a better fit for the vikes than billick in my opinion. the vikes had talent on offense when he was there, now they don't have much more than the ravens have had the last few years.

i am not really a vikings fan, but i don't want to see anyone make the mistake and get billick.

He was the coordinator here for several years, and we'd be better off with him than Childress. Anyone who benches the best RB in the NFL for being a little late to the game where there are playoff implications is worthless. And to answer your question, I wouldn't take Dilfer or TJack as my QB, I just simply pointed out that with a mediocre QB the Ravens won a Super Bowl. Personally, I would take Schottenheimer over him, but Billick is NOT a bad coach. Vikings best bet right now would be to draft a Qb, and sign McNabb to be the starter for a couple seasons and tutor the draft pick. Nonetheless, Childress needs to go

Ziggy isn't backed into a corner yet so Chili will stay. The article on Billick states he lost control of the players. I assume the owner had no choice.

Yeah, lets just let the players come and go as they want too meetings and such, that will work well.

Only way he would have a chance here is a head coach. Won't be coordinator because he and Chilly would definitely but heads. Billick is eating crow because he said that he knows qb's and how to develop them. You can see that never happened in Baltimore. Maybe he could do it as a coordinator, but not as a head coach. He'll find a job for next season.

Childress did the right thing not starting AP.

Look at the control problems the Vikes have had in the past. No one is above the rules, no matter what.

Besides, Taylor is a good running back too.

And, AP did play. A message was sent, that was all.

Childress has earned another year.

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
