Bills head coach Doug Marrone worked on a daily basis with Drew Brees for three seasons in New Orleans (2006-2008) as the team’s offensive coordinator. Working so closely with Brees, logic would say that Marrone probably has a pretty good handle on what kinds of plays Brees likes most in specific down and distance situations. Marrone in his weekly conversation with Buffalobills.com dismissed it.
Marrone maintains that being five years removed from the environment allows for a lot of change. He feels his best way to get a handle on Brees and the Saints offense now is through watching their most current game tape.
“I think you see it on tape, what they’re doing,” he said. “Drew (Brees) is a very competitive person. He gets better each week. There are things they do well. I don’t think it’s a strategic advantage as far as having worked there. I just know how competitive they are and how big of a job and how big of a challenge we have in front of us.”
