Former Super Bowl Champion Ravens Coach and now Fox Sports broadcast analyst Brain Billick certainly has no problem uttering the words “Super Bowl” when it comes to the current 2010 Baltimore Ravens. “They do lack a little bit of a vertical threat…but if they can beat Cincinnati and be 2 - 0, they’re well on their way” states Billick after proclaiming them as the AFC representative for the “Festivus Maximus” game on February 6, 2011.
But just after the victorious team hoists “Tiffani” into the Texas sky of Dallas Cowboys Stadium, Coach Billick is somewhat less confident expressing his concern and outlook for the 2011 suggesting “we will get to a lock out come March. But will we not kick off the ball in 2011? I'm one of those that thinks sane heads will prevail.” Moreover, he shared is perspective on the restructuring of the revenue streams which he believed will make the league more profitable for the players and owners, but was clearly concerned with the proposed 18 game season which he feels is a foregone conclusion, “I’m worried about an 18 game season and it’s going to happen.”
In addition to discussing the impact of injuries in the game and the Philadelphia Eagles potential quarterback controversy, Coach Billick who was part of FOX’s announce team for the Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears week one controversial ending stated, “I don’t know anybody in their right mind can look at that and say it shouldn’t have been a touchdown.” Billick went on to further explain that the referees did make the right call by rule, but it’s clearly something the league needs to review and revise.
And if not, then they are just going to have to “Wedge it!” Okay! Okay! Did you think I would not reference Coors Light at least once? Tune in to hear whether or not Coach is preparing to once again patrol the sidelines of a NFL team or is more than content to remain comfortable in the FOX Sports announcers booth collecting Coors Light commercial royalties! “Boot! Boot! It’s a Boot!”
