Kyle Shanahan, Kirby Wilson get second meeting with Ravens

The Ravens may be narrowing the field for their offensive coordinator opening, as they’ve lined up second interviews with a pair of candidates.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens are interviewing former Washington play-caller Kyle Shanahan today, and will talk to Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson again Friday.

Wilson interviewed for the first time Wednesday, so he must have made a good impression on coach John Harbaugh.

The Ravens have also interviewed in-house receivers coach Jim Hostler and former Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan for the post.

They have a number of issues on offense that the new guy will have his hands full with. They never replaced wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who was traded in a salary dump, and their running game reached franchise-low levels this year.

All of that didn’t stop former coordinator Jim Caldwell from getting the Lions head coaching job.

    Meh. Just meh. Not looking forward to next year. I’ll never forget how they just gave up against the Patriots in a win and your in scenario. Utterly despicable. At home no less.

    What’s he want to coach the champs for for ten days until your reign ends? Why go from a team trending up to one trending down…Kirby is too smart for that after all he coaches for the steelers….not the ravens.

    Only in Pittsburgh is losing to Tebow, and then having two consecutive 8-8 records considered “trending up.”

    Only raven fans are too dumb to realize their team quit against the”_ Pats while the Steelers fought to the very end.

    That’s why we six….

    Trending up for the Steelers? 8 -8 two years in a row and you’re well over 10 million in salary cap hell. Ravens even after horrible year still were in the post season hunt till the very end. If Kirby is too smart, then why come back for the 2nd interview? Obviously he wants to advance his career and that might mean leaving Pitt.

    Dude you may think you were in the hunt, but your team didn’t play like it. Putting your head in the sand doesn’t hide the fact that the ravens stumbled to end their season while the steelers sprinted to the end . Reality sucks, but you heed to drink some.

    Sellers fought to the end all right… and on the $100,000 sidelines too. Class? I do not think so.

    Wilson needs to stay where he is with a six time super bowl franchise! He has tasted two super bowls with the Steelers so its no big deal that you are the defending champs for another 10 days. The Steelers is trending up based on how they started the season 0-4 and finished 8-8. Not many teams would have fought through that start. We fought till the end and sprinted to the finish.

    As for Wilson, considering that the Steelers managed to accumulate ANY rushing yards with ZERO talent, he might be worth a try.
    As for the Steelers, kudos to them for mugging a punter to beat the Bengals, and then beating the Aaron Rodgersless Packers as well as the who-cares-about-a worthless-win-when-we-can-get-a-better-draft-pick-Browns. However, if I were a Steelers’ fan, I would wonder why my team, after being flattened by Tim Tebow, has gone 8-8 two years in a row. Is Rooney going for a Mediocrity Three-peat? Sure looks like it!

    Wilson went back to the ravens office, but it was because he forgot his jacket. When he got there, Bernard Pierce and Ngata had taken his wallet and ordered a gross of ring-dings and tubs of ice cream. Harbs dismissed it as their normal off-season conditioning program.

    It pains me when Steelers fans, like their front office, obsess so unecessarily on the past. It appears to be the downfall of their entire organization.

    Ozzie and Ravens fans honor their illustriuous past, but also understand that football is fluid and ever changing.

    After a historic championship run, the Ravens parted ways with 2 first ballot HOF defenders yet still managed an 8-8 season.

    Meanwhile, the Steelers continue mired in mediocrity, and hope for a miracle that Troy can band aid together a whole healthy season and find the fountain of youth.

    It certainly appears that the Ravens, not steelers are the ones headed in the right direction.

    Ya they really looked great against the Bungals in their last game. Considering all the trashed talked in the off season I would say you raven fans will be eating crow till week one next year. Ah yes from champs to chumps very quickly inspite of all the expert predictions by their “knowlegdeable fans” …made my year to see you crap the sheets.

    For everyone to understand this one man vendetta from a Steelers fan, you have to realize that the phrase “champs to chumps” is so well etched into Nofoolnodrool’s vocabulary because he had to say it over and over in his head after the 2009 season this Steelers put together after beating the Cardinals.

    Just where did the Steelers sprint at the end of the season? Last I checked, they failed to make the playoffs two years in a row. Is someone trying to say that winning three games at the end of the year qualifies as momentum? Hahahahahahaha!
