Street Talk Former Raven Wants to be The Biggest Loser

When Brian Billick arrived in Baltimore he brought with him a confidence and swagger that the then 3-year old Baltimore Ravens had never seen or experienced.

He was anointed “Offensive Genius” and was thought to be an X’s and O’s guru who could do no wrong. Perhaps Billick himself even sipped some of that Kool-Aid, while embracing delusions of grandeur, thinking he could emulate his successes in Minnesota where he was the architect of the Vikings high-flying offense, even with Scott Mitchell and Tony Banks at the controls behind center.

It didn’t take Billick long to realize that rotund Scott Mitchell wasn’t his guy.

Sporting a physique that resembled that of an offensive guard, Mitchell started two games for the Ravens in 1999 and was promptly benched after 4 interceptions, 1 fumble and a passer rating of 31.5 during the two contests.

If only his numbers on the scale were as paltry.

Today Mitchell tips the scales at 366 pounds and is among the contestants on this season’s “Biggest Loser.”

If only Jillian Michaels had been around in 1999…

Taking into consideration the cost of acquisition, salary, etc who represents the worst QB investment in Ravens history?
