BISCIOTTI: “Failure is part of success”

Steve B 600

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said he would not have a knee-jerk reaction and push for major changes after a disappointing 8-8 season. In a rare session with the media Wednesday, Bisciotti did not put any players or coaches on notice. Flanked by team president Dick Cass, general manager Ozzie Newsome, and coach John Harbaugh, Bisciotti remained confident the Ravens were still built for long-term success, after their first non-playoff season in six years, less than a year after winning the Super Bowl.

“I think your heart wants to react quickly,” Bisciotti said. “I think your head, if you’re a wise businessman, you take time and you listen to a lot of people and you contemplate a lot of different things.

“Failure is part of success. We’re all very disappointed here, obviously as our fans are, even more so. I’m comfortable with where we are, I’m comfortable where we’re headed.”

One of Bisciotti’s next destinations would be home to Jupiter, Fla., where he would conduct a two-day meeting with Ravens’ front office personnel to plot offseason strategy. Bisciotti did not hide the fact he expected the Ravens to be a Super Bowl contender again this season.

“We had a lot of failures on the football field, offense and defense,” Bisciotti said. “I know they’ve got their work cut out for them. (My job) it’s be a sounding board to them and encourage them to make the kind of decisions that they believe are the right ones for us.”

Bisciotti is hoping to see a more explosive, versatile offense from the Ravens next season. “I think it’s safe to say that we’re going to look at the offense with the same fine tooth comb that we looked at the defense last year,” Bisciotti said.

One Rave about “BISCIOTTI: “Failure is part of success”

    from a guy that was willing to give the team to jason garrett WITHOUT interviewing anyone else-he ain’t infallible. the coaching staff, as currently positioned, is over matched. you have to make the hard decisions NOW in order to keep up. the league is always changing and we aren’t. did you see what pitts did with their line this year?-blocking schemes?-they were on their 3rd or 4th center, the line was constantly changing positions and ben was still sacked less than joe. caldwell is a nice man but he isn’t an OC. he couldn’t work our best blocking back. vonta, into any scheme that would have had HIM protecting joe instead of 5′ 8″ rice (who isn’t a bad blocker himself) on passing downs. our receivers NEVER come back to joe when he is in trouble, they run simple routes with no picks or clear outs-what happened to the end around? our best offensive player over the last 3 years, rice, wasn’t in our passing attack in the beginning of the year BEFORE he got hurt. that after we knew there was no bolden and pitta got hurt. it’s about coaching in this league-ALL the players are good.
