Sports Fan Insider
Former Ravens Head Coach Brian Billick joined the Norris and Davis show to discuss the NFL and Ravens training camp.
Steve started out by asking Billick about his thoughts on Ogden. He said everyone knew that he would be a first ballot Hall of Famer. It is really something incredible to be a first ballot guy and might go down as one of the greatest tackles of all time.
Steve asked Billick how he stacks up compared to some of the other greats. Billick says that he is bias but still the body of work for Ogden is remarkable. Every other position you can quantify a debate based on numbers. However for a lineman it is subjective. Yet no one wouldn’t put Ogden in the top three of all time. He was that special to watch. The man overwhelms you with is presence. When you have a big guy like that you just kinda think he must not be athletic but then he would just blow you away. Also, in all his years he never remembers Ogden being late or missing a meeting. He was always there doing his job.
Ed then asked Billick about the Cooper controversy. Billick said the Eagles did the right thing. Cooper needs to realize nothing is off the record. Yet at the end of the day this is a great teaching moment for all of the NFL and America as a whole.
