Billick has one of the best defenses ever for about a decade.
Rex Ryan Marvin Lewis Mike Singletary Mike Nolan
All coached his defenses. He couldn't manage a game and couldn't get an offense to score 20 points despite being an "offensive genius" Baltimore has a great GM. So Billick looked better than he was. It's also telling he got zero interest upon firing despite desperately putting his name out there through his employer at the time NFLN

and the correct answer is Billick
I'm a Ravens fan. I don't think Billick was that good of a coach but he played a huge part in changing the culture of that team. A lot of people forget that the Ravens were absolutely awful before he got there and he turned them around immediately. Also, he did a brilliant job motivating the team and keeping them close together over the course of an up and down situation. I mean the team went five straight games without scoring a TD. The locker room could have easily fallen apart and imploded. Instead they became even more closely-knit and won 11 straight games to close out the season. Billick did a lot more for the team than just go along the road. The only possible correct answers to this question is Don McCafferty and Barry Switzer. Both coaches won Super Bowls with teams that were already built by the previous coach. All they had to do was not screw it up.

The Ravens offense actually wasn't even that bad that season. They just couldn't score TDs in the red zone because Tony Banks was one of the biggest frickups at QB I've ever seen. They were 14th in points scored and 16th in total offense. They put up better offensive numbers in the regular season than the 2002 Bucs and 2008 Steelers did. At least the Ravens had an elite rushing attack. Those two teams weren't good running or throwing the ball.
