With the endorsement of Drew Brees and Sean Payton, the is a sense of excitement with the new hiring for the Bills coaching job. Personally, I was not thrilled in the beginning but am starting to come around. Defensively, Buffalo needs a proven coach/coordinator to help in this area. You can score 41 points in a game with a high powered offense but until you are able to stop the opponents you won’t win any games.
Doug Marrone had this to say about hiring the coordinators…
“One thing I’ve learned about coaching is there are great coaches in all areas,” Marrone said. “What I’m not going to do is put a parameter around exactly what I’m looking for from a certain position. Obviously with the coordinators we want people that have thorough NFL experience, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Offensively, we want people with NFL experience. I think our coordinators we want to make sure they’ve been in this league. This is a very difficult job being an NFL coach. I think at the end of the day we need to find the best fit where we’re going to be most successful.”
This gives me hope to know that Marrone knows what Buffalo needs to counteract his coaching style and the changes that he will be making as well.
