There is no debating that it was a tumultuous season for the Bills with the extended training camp, preseason, quarterback change, running back injuries and a relocated home game. Finishing with a winning record in spite of those hurdles has Buffalo’s players giving a thumbs up for the job done by head coach Doug Marrone and his staff.
“He’s done a tremendous job with us,” said Fred Jackson. “We faced a lot of adversity that you’re not accustomed to facing in a season with the snow storm, having to relocate for a home game, the changing in owners. A lot of stuff you wouldn’t normally deal with throughout a season and he still kept us in it. We finished with the best record I’ve had since I’ve been here in my nine seasons. I think a lot of that credit needs to go to him and I think it’s well deserved if he does get a lot of it.”
“He’s an outgoing coach,” said Brandon Spikes. “He’s passionate and emotional and a lot of guys feed off of that especially going into the game. He’s kind of laid back through the practice week and lets the coordinators do most of the work. Then he just sits back and critiques everything. Come game day you can see that he’s an emotional coach. He’s emotional and passionate about the game and that’s all it takes in my eyes. He connects with the players and guys love him and play for him.”
