Marrone went for 2 up 31-12 with 25 sec to go vs Jets

Marrone did not quit on the team; Pegula with Whaley wanted him to change his staff and approach.  Wow, so many bitter Buffalo Bills fans talking up McDermott who started Peterman; calling it indefensible but always willing to look the other way for the process. Bitter enough to mock a guy who beat us in the playoffs and we are out because McDermott refused to move on from Peterman.  Both teams are not going in grow up.  

 

Marrone is mocked because he's mockable.  Dude utters the word "obviously" eighteen times per minute and hasn't shown he is anything more than a roughly .500 coach -- 32-34 in the NFL and 25-25 in college.  Four winning seasons out of nine overall, and his 9-7 in Buffalo came thanks to a win against the Pats*** 3rd stringers.  I don't care why he left Buffalo; he's just not very good.  Come talk to us about McD after he has coached five years in the NFL.

If he makes it five years and isn’t lured to the college ranks.

Because as the past couple decades have shown us, going 9-7 is so common in Buffalo, we can afford to be dismissive of the ones that don't live up to our lofty accomplishments...

He managed that after pulling Orton off the couch and using EJ the first 4 games of the season, and we played the Pats first stringers for a half (including Brady), and were still winning.

It was a more impressive accomplishment considering how we won than what we did last year getting into the playoffs. In fact, there are plenty of articles about last year's team discussing how that wasn't even close to the best Bills team we've fielded the past 2 decades. It was also the last time the Bills fielded a decent passing offense (finishing 18th)...The best we've done since then is finishing 28th overall in passing offense. 

Dismiss him all you want, but he & Schwartz had this team headed in the right direction. He also managed to get a Blake Bortles lead Jaguars team to the AFC Championship game, and minutes away from the Super Bowl. That's better any coach we've had since Marv has been able to do, so don't pretend it's some easy feat or else we'd have done the same by now.

In the words of Bill Parcells -- you are what your record says you are.  Saint Doug is a middling head coach.  Sean McDermott is just beginning his career and deserves a few more seasons before we claim he's worse than the almighty Marrone.
