Billick just doesn't like Pete ... does he

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Watched the The Coaches Show and Billick said Pete was way off base with his questioning the free field goal try Atlanta's kicker got. Does anybody know why Billick always seems to find some way to slam Pete all the time. He even acted "bitchy" during the broadcast when Pete was questioning the ref about the kick....something to the effect ..."Oh come on Pete you know you called a timeout." .... as if Pete was telling the ref he really didn't call the timeout. I used to like Billick ... but more and more he seems like a jerk.

  • The Sunday game crew for both sucked big time, Billick didn't even know the down and distance situations when the game was going on. I know most people complain about the broadcast crew after a loss but this was almost as bad as the Martz/Rams slobberfest orgy earlier in the year.

  • He was pulling for the Falcons for sure,he looked crestfallen when we briefly took the lead.His sister is married to Mike Smith I believe and Smith worked for him.

  • I'm sure Billick is jealous of any "college coach" that took a potential NFL job from him.

  • Heard somewhere that Billick is related by a marriage (can't recall if its his son in law or daughter in law) to Mike Smith of the Falcons. Maybe that's it.

    Yep, he seriously looked distressed. Made me chuckle out loud.

  • It's disgusting that the NFL allowed such a biased person be one of the announcers in a divisional playoff game.

  • I did laugh however when they mentioned Chris Myers(sideline reporter)did 7 Hawk games this season.I do not buy the college thing because he seems to have no problem with Harbaugh at all.

  • I remember during the game yesterday when we had 50 seconds left in the game Billick said something "This isn't automatically 4 down territory they could go for a field goal because they have all their timeouts left."

  • Someone posted here that because of the FG "practicing" that went on during Raven-Broncos, the refs briefed both teams before the game that that wouldn't be allowed. If that's actually true, then I suppose there should have been a five-yard delay penalty imposed for the kick. I don't think it's really that big a deal, and the kicker probably would have scored anyhow. But if you go to the trouble of explicitly spelling something like that out pre-game, then you MUST call it during the game. Even if it goes against the home team in a crucial spot. It's simply a must, if credibility and consistency are things that you value as an organization.

    As to the OP, if the pre-game briefing did indeed occur, then Bilick's obviously wrong factually. Every coach in the league would have asked for a call in that circumstance, even him.

  • Billick was almost snickering when he remarked that Seattle came back last week against a hobbled RGIII but that there was no injured QB to take advantage of this time. The score was 27-7. He definitely has something against someone in the organization.

  • Billick is a tool...

    He had his knee pads on for Smith for most of that game, but I will never forget him calling the game in AZ (2010) he was slobbering on Whiz, then Hasselbeck wound up a bomb for Butler. Before Hass could even throw the ball he was "Oh no, uh oh". As Butler caught the ball, juked 3 DB's like they were standing still and scored.

    It really bothered him. "This is just a busted play that Seattle got away with". When it was executed to perfection.

    I was kind of down on the Fox offering, for that game they could have done better.
    Eh... Whatever...

    Especially since they had shown Pete on camera holding up four fingers to Russell to explicitly remind him they had four downs to work with.

  • I thought Kenny, Moose and Goose was the #2 crew for Fox. Why was Billick doing the game anyway?

  • I sent a complain to Fox sports on this, I did this earlier while Mike was doing the Rams Seahawks game in St Louis and I have not seen him again. I think if people write to them, they will look at it again and understand things better.
