Ravens strike first


Recommended Posts

Sources told ESPN's Ed Werder that Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett has been offered the Baltimore Ravens coaching position.

Garrett has not made a decision yet.

The Ravens are seeking a successor for Brian Billick, who was fired after the regular season.

From ESPN, he might go to Ravens

--------------------------------------

Garrett, who arrived at the Ravens' training complex for the second interview on Tuesday morning, was the first candidate to have call-back sessions with the Ravens and Falcons.

Garrett, 41, is a veteran of three seasons as an NFL assistant. He was hired by the Cowboys as offensive coordinator in 2007, after two seasons on the Miami Dolphins' staff. In 2007, he presided over a unit that statistically ranked No. 3 in the league, but struggled in the final month of the year and in Sunday's playoff loss.

A former Princeton quarterback, Garrett played 12 seasons in the NFL as a backup, serving stints with Dallas (1993-99), the Giants (2000-03), Tampa Bay (2004), and Miami (2004). He also played in the World League (1991) and in the CFL (1991).

He's been a coach for all of 3 years. Not coordinator... Not just as an NFL coach. AS A COACH PERIOD. I am AMAZED that is not an issue for an owner.

The unit he presided over in 2007 that was statistically ranked no. 3 in the league was ranked no. 5 in the league in 2006... when he was at Miami.

What happened to finding the most qualified and experienced candidate?

Dear GOD please let Blank have learned the lesson about going after the "sizzle hire" aka hot candidate.

This is good news. I was really hoping we would not offer him the job. He has 1 year of experience as a coordinator. one freakin year! in 2004 he was still a backup QB. That's just not enough experience for a head coach, especially for a team like the Falcons that can't risk another bad coaching hire

Dallas radio said this morning that Garretts wife was also in attendance this morning which I found to be almost a sure thing. Then it was announced she was there as his lawyer. lol

They want to fire Wade all over Dallas this week and want Garrett to stay. Jerry loves him. Get out your pocketbook Baltimore

Garrett ain't going anywhere. Wade's leaving Dallas soon, and Garrett will have not only the Cowboys, but a brand new BILLION (that's with a 'B') DOLLAR STADIUM.

He'd be an idiot to choose Baltimore or Atlanta over staying in Big D.

agreed. I think he is out there to get Jerry to sweeten the pot and put some promises in writing. Jerry is also curious as to what his prodigy is worth on the open market.
