Marrone: “Let coaches challenge everything”

The NFL has already slightly expanded the instant replay rule this week, by voting to use the league’s Officiating Command Center to consult with on-field officials during replay reviews.
If Buffalo Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone had his way, the replay rule would be expanded even more.
He things coaches should be able to challenge any call on the field.
“Whether you have two challenges, three challenges, to protect your team, put it upon the coach, so he has the right to challenge anything,” Marrone said Tuesday at the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando.
“If he challenges it and loses, obviously he loses his challenge. If you feel it’s a play that is a game changing type play, he should have the ability to challenge that play just to get the call right.”
Marrone made the comments in an appearance on The John Murphy Show podcast from the NFL meetings. The entire interview will air tonight.
The New England Patriots have proposed a replay system that would allow coaches to challenge any official’s call, except on scoring plays. That proposal is not expected to get much traction this week at the meetings.
