Appearing on the CBS Sports Monday QB show, former NFL QBs Phil Simms and Rich Gannon weighed in on the hiring of Doug Marrone by the Bills. Here were their comments.

Simms: He has coached under Sean Payton and Bill Parcells. He’s been in the NFL. They say he’s ready for the job. I know 25-25 (at Syracuse) does not sound like a great record, but that program was completely in the gutter when he went up there. He did a wonderful job.

Gannon: That was a mess when you took the job at Syracuse. They had won 10 games the previous four years with Greg Robinson. He was a miracle-worker up in Syracuse. He won there and I think he’ll put together a good staff in Buffalo. I think he can win there with the talent that they have.
