I think Billick is full of crap on this one. If he's got Jamal Lewis standing on the sideline on a Sunday, who's willing to run the ball, Billick would be an idiot to not put him in. Didn't Billick also say that Boller wouldn't play if he didn't sign by training camp last year? Well he was on the field on opening day. My advice: Don't buy it.
I wouldn't buy it either, I have heard other accounts of when he will play, and I just can't see the Ravens sitting him if they had a chance to play him.
As far as Billick goes, I don't think he is lying about this. With Boller he was pressuring him to sign, but I don't see a reason for him pressuring Lewis. Unless he has some hidden motives....
