i find it hard to give him a grade for some reason. i really like him though. he seems like a players coach in that he will ask for their opinion and work with them, but he also will not hesitate to get on a players ass if he is slacking in practice. he really wants to do whats best for the team as seen by getting rid of Fassel even though he was a friend of his. he definetly will speak his mind to the media and tell them how he feel, i love that even though it rubs some people the wrong way. some would say he could be held responsible for what happened in the playoffs.
overall i really like him. his is a personality and hey it could be a lot worse (see the giants)

I think he's a very good coach and I can't believe how many people jumped off his bandwagon after 1 playoff game last year.
I think a lot of it is because he was brought in as a offensive genius and since our super bowl season the only thing that has held up back is the offense. Not to mention the last playoff game we won was in the season after we won the superbowl I believe.
I think some outsiders would look at Billick and say he is overrated... few playoff wins since the Super Bowl year, came to the Ravens as an offensive guru and during his tenure has yet to have fielded a great offense, nor has he developed a good QB during that same time.
Now as those are facts one must look at it another way. A mark of a great coach, he has developed his players and his coaches around him making them better, Brian trusts his front office and lets them bring him players that are the best available and makes a fine wine with what grapes are provided to him. He represents the Team well in front of the camera and displays a level of professionalism that is second to none. If you look at other coaches that have had success that make waves like Dennis Green the Head Coach he coached under before coming to Baltimore he has never had success for those reasons that make Brian successful.
We always say in Ozzie we trust ... well in Brian I trust !!!
How many QB has Billick gone through as the starting QB, if he have gone threw a ton of QB like Billick and he is a "QB Guru" I am just wondering if maybe he really isnt a QB guru. BTW ERU what has he done for you to consider him a elite NFL coach.
