Brian Billick, welcome to Twitter! The former Ravens head coach and current NFL Network and FOX analyst decided to take B. Billick (US Presswire)part in riding the social media wave earlier this week. He happens to have an excellent Twitter handle (@CoachBillick – not @Brian_Billick or @RealBBillick or something from the leftover Billick pile – he has the broad, all encompassing @CoachBillick).

We’re grandly welcoming Billick to Twitter because one of his first tweets was a gem: “after the hundreds and hundreds of reminders...yes, we gambled on a QB, thats why Im tweeting about the draft rather than prepping for one!”

Billick, of course, is referring to Kyle Boller (who, by the way, recently re-signed with the Raiders). Boller was drafted by Baltimore in the first round and given chance after chance to become the franchise quarterback. Obviously, it never worked out.


Billick even has a knack for retweeting and replying. He did so when follower @LeeBrom asked, “(did Boller’s) ability to throw through the uprights influence you?” Billick’s response: “impressive, but tried to justify college comp % by lack of talent at Cal.”

Presumably, Billick is referring to the lack of talent surrounding Boller at Cal, not Boller’s own lack of talent at Cal.

We’ll keep close tabs on Billick’s Twitter life moving forward. A man known for his blunt honesty and from the baby boomers generation is destined to send out some unintentionally harsh zingers, don’t you think?

We should sincerely hope this process precisely goes away absolutely. Applying for written up which will, that were designed to wish the entire Vikings to get started on gone earning and so i don't especially like which experts claim doubtlessly.

If i had a twitter, i'd follow him. A well respected man here in Baltimore- still very active in the community and local sports scene. The work he did and continues to do for this city is always appreciated.

As a Ravens fan I will always appreciate that Brian coached our Super Bowl winning team in 2000. But after a few years he lost control of the team by losing the players & the front offices confidence to effectively coach. I mean he WAS labeled an offensive genius for helping the Vikings offense raise the bar, but he never really accomplished SQUAT in the form of ANY offensive SCHEME here at all in Baltimore in how many years? 

Kyle Boller is/was never a franchise QB, and YES Baltimore needed a QB - so the pressure was high to draft a QB. But I honestly also contribute Kyle's lack of growth partially to Billick. I mean the Ravens DID win it all with Trent Dilfer under center. Kyle could have grown into a better pro (2 string at best) than today if he would have had the proper coaching staff & support. That and an offensive line outside of just Jonathan Ogden would have helped.

Brian for your own good, stay in the booth.
