08:00 AM ET 12.16 | Brian Billick reportedly has some interest in taking his coaching talents to Miami. [Billick], who won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens a decade ago, said Thursday he would potentially have interest in the Dolphins coaching job if approached. Billick is on the Dolphins' radar, according to several sources. But Billick said he has not yet been contacted. Meanwhile, the Dolphins' initial calls in their search to replace Tony Sparano were expected to be made to representatives for former Steelers coach Bill Cowher and former Titans coach Jeff Fisher, according to a person briefed on the situation. That person said his understanding is that the Dolphins have either reached out to both men, or planned to shortly.

An offensive genius who can't coach an offense is the perfect hire for the Fish. It's a match made in heaven.

Not really an offensive mind in my opinion.

Somehow the fish will end up going backwards.

Word. Watching the Ravens' offense during his tenure was...... Mark Boler like.

Billick would be intrigued by any job that lifted it's skirt in his general direction.

The Dolphins are casting a wide net. Not surprising that they are coming up with boots, old tires and drums of toxic waste.

Exactly. His "offense" in Minnesota was- "Cunningham throw it up for grabs to Moss. Then, hand the ball to Robert Smith. Then, take a knee in the NFC championship game." Oh, and that Ravens offense was the reason they won the Super Bowl, too. Yeah, right.

A skirt lifted? Where?

Yup, Billick's major achievement as a HC was hiring very good DCs.

Located near the perfumed inner thigh of Stephen Ross...

At least he got that part right.

A little too much information there.

What was so frustrating about it, was you could imagine how good they would've actually been, if he EVER drafted a QB there, in Baltimore. Seemed like he didn't want to, so the offensive struggles would always be blamed on the QB.

Too bad the NFC title game didn't work out a little better for him/them.

Ew. What a happy thought heading into the weekend.

Absolutely. Say what you want about Dilfer, but changing QBs right after winning a Superbowl struck me as a bad idea. Considering Kyle Boeller an "upgrade" over anyone was just **** crazy. Then he was too stubborn to correct his mistake.

No doubt. That was the season the Vikes set the single-season scoring record, and went 15-1 only to lose the NFC title game at home... to the Falcons, of all teams.

I always thought a Vikes-Broncos Super Bowl that year would have been much more entertaining than what everyone got to see instead.
