    • Hm well I'm not too familiar with Brian Billick .But at least its an Offense person this time around.What does that do for our play book calling wise,will it open more down field plays or quick routes for WR ?Do we still look ahead at the draft and look and get Locker ( only worthy QB besides Luck ) or totally skip the first two rounds and go with a later QB like Stanzi to where we don't have to spend so much money on the kid and just let him develop in 2nd string behind a veteran QB next season.However, I still want them to really hard scout Locker at the senior bowl and possible have him at in our top 5 guys in BPA being number 1 or 2 spot behind a CB or S position .Maybe even a new DE in the mix also.What do you guys think ?

        I agree with the Ravens West facade but there's a difference. Billick is at least an offensive based head coach but it says that he's a branch of the Bill Walsh tree. I'm going to assume that was when he was at Stanford? Is that correct or am I way off?

        And I didnt even know that Singletary was the LB coach at BAL for two seasons before coming over with Nolan. But at least on the bright side, Billick has HC experience and knowledge plus he's offensive based and a HUGE upgrade over Singletary, Nolan and Erickson.

        With all that said, where the **** is Jon Gruden in any of these rumors? I cant believe that Jed is this ******* stupid. Actually, now that im thinking about it, I CAN believe it.
        Yes Billick can be blamed. He was the head coach. Period. Using that logic you can forgive Singletary for not getting the job done. Billick definitely has the knowledge, but it doesn't mean he necessarily has the "eye" for talented quarterbacks. I want someone that is going to get us an All-Pro quarterback. Whether it's a no-name coach, or some coach with a huge pedigree. This is what I want. One simple thing. We have a quarterback on our team, we're NFC west champions. Instantly.

            He's the one that selects the head coach. And the GM may be the triggerman when it comes to the draft, but obviously the head coach is going to have some insight on the player he'll be coaching.

              Huge difference between Billick and Singletary. Billick didnt have control or power like Singletary did this year and Singletary chose wrong three times. He chose Aex over Shaun Hill. He chose Carr over Hill and he chose Troy over Nate.

              Billick didnt have power because if he did, im sure he would have drafted or signed a QB. Of course, when you look at the draft, he wasnt going to go after Eli, Philip or Ben in 2004 after drafting Boller in 2003 and he didnt have a first rounder in 2004 anyway so it doesnt even matter. 2005 had Alex, Rodgers and Campbell. Rodgers is the best one by far with Alex and Jason second and third. 2006 had Young, Leinart and Cutler. Cutler is easily the best one by far but Billick got Ngata so you cant really blame anyone in BAL for tht decision. In 2007, it was Russell who is gone and Quinn who's a backup in DEN if I remember correctly.

              So, when you think about it, out of eight QB's between 2005 and 2007, only two have become good to great so its obvious that the percentages of success isnt exactly there. Plus, its Newsome who's been in charge since 2002, not Billick so at worst, Billick is 50/50 to blame. And always remember, the GM is always going to do what he wants to do regardless of what the coach wants. Not every GM/HC works together. More times than not, both look to go for a "power play" with one succeeding and one failing.

              I understand you wanting a HC who wants to get a QB but there's one small problem with that. Its not going to be up to the HC or even the GM. If Baalke becomes the official GM, its all Jed York so if anyone is to blame regardless of who our next HC turns out to be, its Jed York.

              And just because we have a QB on our team, we dont instantly become division champions because there's so much bullcrap behind the scenes year after year that its going to take a lot more than that. Plus, the QB isnt going to be awesome from the start unless we luck out like the Rams did but thats not going to happen.

              Bottom line is that I prefer Billick over any of those coordinators that were posted on the last page. Of course, im still baffled as to why Gruden hasnt been at least mentioned. It doesnt make any sense but then again, im not really surprised that what Jed does doesnt make any sense to begin with.

                Maiocco had a good write up on the coaching candidates today and I never realized that Gruden was below .500 the last 5 years with the Bucs.

                But in his final five seasons in Tampa, Gruden's teams went 45-51 with an 0-2 record in the playoffs.
                Also, think it was Peter King, who brought up you would have to pay a ton not just for Gruden but also the front office person he would like to bring along. Heard Bruce Allen name brought up a few times if the Skins let him go.

                  Do you have a link to that article because I would like to read it? Thanks. Thats not even a fair comparison for Gruden who was two games over .500 in his seven years at TB. After 2003, they let some players go, others didnt work out, the GM made some bad decisions, etc. It wasnt all on Gruden. And while credit goes to Dungy for his SB win with Tampa, he should also get credit for it because after all, he still had to coach the team to get there and without a QB. Dungy got the Colts to the SB and won it but if it wasnt for Manning and the GM who built around him, he never would have won a SB with Indy. Basically, it all goes both ways.

                  Would rather have Holmgren as the GM but in regards to money, thats one reason why we'll never be good again. Its amazing that the team is even still profitable. You would think that after eight years of crap, the fans would say, screw it, im not giving my money to the York's when I could spend it on myself instead.

                  What really sucks is that if he doesnt get Harbaugh and signs some crapper to be the HC and he fails and gets fired with years remaining on his contract like Sing and Nolan (and possibly Erickson), all he's doing is spending more money in the long run than he would if he paid Gruden $7 or $8m a season.

                  York's should be more generous like Eddie was. Gee, what a shock that the team has sucked since he's been gone. Still hoping for a Holmgren/Gruden/Locker dynasty.

                      The ironic thing though, is that fans are saying we should boycott the team, but that just leads to a vicious cycle. No money for the team = no chance of improving.

                      • Thanks for the link Hawkeye.

                        My thoughts on the article -

                        Harbaugh - I have to admit that I didnt know anything about him except that he was a former NFL QB but this has kind of (but not 100%) sold me on him - "He runs a derivative of Bill Walsh's West Coast offense at Stanford, where he formed a nice bond with the Hall of Fame coach before his passing in 2007" - a version of the WCO, bond with Bill Walsh. I like it. I like it a lot. Still worried that his lack of NFL head coaching experience and who would the OC be? Have to be someone who knows the WCO but at the same time, cant be someone who's a threat to Harbaugh or a threat to leave if our offense suddenly explodes.

                        Gruden - Everyone here already knows that he's still number one on my wish list.

                        Billick - Is third after Gruden and Harbaugh.

                        Mornhinweg - Would be 4th on my wish list but im still worried that he's one of those guys who's better as an OC than he is as a HC.

                        Holmgren - Would prefer him to be our next GM with Gruden as HC but if Harbaugh falls through, would be the new number one on my list ahead of Gruden. Dont see him leaving CLE or them allowing him to leave.

                        The rest I have no interest in whatsoever.

                          What happens is Harbaugh loses the Bowl game on Monday and Luck plays bad? Also, what happens if Luck decides to stay in college for his senior season after we sign Harbaugh?

                          Has anyone thought of those possibilities?

                            Yeah, but the York's are ******* cheap to begin with. In four off-seasons, only three major free agent signings - Clements, Lewis (gone) and J. Smith. Everyone else has been via the draft or a cheap veteran signing like Franklin and Spikes. And when you look at who our head coaches have been since Mariucci, they're definitely going the cheap route.

                            And to anyone here, doesnt anyone know what Mariucci's contract was back in 1997? Thanks.

                              The Yorks hold all the money. The revenue that fans bring in don't correlate the success of a team. The people at the front office picking the players and coaches do. It's up to the ownership to gain money from the fans by fielding a good team.

                                I wouldn't care if we got Luck. Never have. Having good coaching (regardless of who it is) is invaluable. A good coach that knows offense and has an eye for talent will find a good quarterback one way or the other. If Harbaugh losses the Bowl game so what? He'd still be a good candidate to be head coach.
