    Has anyone come across reports on why Brian bullock can't get interviewed,not just in Miami anywhere?

    I know its been reported he has an ego but so do a lot of coaches, makes me wonder if something else is going on
    Not going to mention it but I think you guys can follow what I'm insinuating.

    I hope not because I like him as a coach but franchises are staying away from him like he is infected

    It is still very early in the process but I believe he will get an interview this week.

    I understand that no team has interviewed him for years.

    There must be a reason............

    because many teams don't see him as some genius that can turn around their franchise like other Super Bowl winning coaches.

    He has not been interested in returning to coaching until this year. Some guys just need a break to recharge their batteries.
    Plus the money...who could pass that up?

    Geniuses like who...Chud? Fisher? The other flavor of the week assistant coaches?
    There are no geniuses.
    Bottom line is that Billicks resume is pretty damm good.

    Who said he had any interest in coaching up until now? Has he even said he wants back in?

    I hadn't heard this about Billick but there was an article a few weeks back on how Jim Fassel can't get an interview.

    Jim Fassel still waiting

    I'm not a big Fassel fan but it does seem odd that with all the retread names that are brought up that he doesn't get asked to the party.

    Either way, my guess is you'd think twice about even trying to horse around with a guy like soliai in the showers...lol!

    Billick's main reason for not retuning to coaching immediatley was that he was still getting paid by the Ravens, so essentially he was getting paif bank to work a cushy job at NFL Network.

    As far as him wanting to return to coaching, this is the first year I am aware that he's had any interest on wanting to return.

    The reason is that he wasnt a great HC imo. He was supposed to be an offensive guy, yet Baltimore always had a terrible offense. I would give more credit to Ray Lewis, Rod Woodson, Ed Reed, and Chris McAlister, and Terrell Suggs for the winning seasons under Billick. Baltimore has historically drafted well, and I think you can attribute its success to the personel and DC rather than the HC.

    Ireland might have served as his ball boy once or twice...

    Its funny how when a team loses, the HC coach needs to be fired and players have nothing to do with it, and when the team wins, the HC just had it easy with the roster he was fielding...

    Its not generalized. Its a case by case basis. Did Billick have control over his defense in Baltimore? Not really. He was supposed to be the offensive mastermind and failed at it.

    I wouldn't mind seeing him come here. He seems much better than a lot of the other choices.

    Yeah. I personally hate how that term is always thrown around. Genuis' split atoms, cure diseases and research particle physics and quantum mechanics. Not master the zone blitz or the WCO.

    Billick has wanted back in coaching for a couple of years. He was interviewed and he even thought he had the Buffalo job to the point he was putting a staff together when they decided to go with Gailey. My only thought is that maybe he comes across too smart for his own good and owners and GM's wonder if he can actually relate with the players.

    Sorry but I dont see how winning a SuperBowl with Trent Dilfer is a failure offensively...

    Someone who is actually smart would be a refreshing change.

    Billick probably intimidates Ireland. Hopefully he is on Peterson's short list.

    They won in spite of Dilfer, not because of Dilfer. They won because they had the best defense in NFL history. It was an offensive failure, but not a team failure. Billick was supposed to be an offensive guru, much like Tony Sparano was supposed to be an OL guru. Both failed at their expertise and were subsequently fired.
