A couple of NFL Network analysts and former head coaches themselves had a couple of comments concerning Perry Fewell’s interim head coaching job during their NFL Network ‘The Coaches Show.’
Steve Mariucci and Mike Martz both offered their take on how Fewell has to approach things from here on out.
“He’s got to be himself. He can’t be Dick Jauron, he can’t be Marv Levy… he just has to win some games and let the chips fall where they may,” said Mariucci.
“He’s very sharp – this is a terrific pick for a head coach,” said Mike Martz. “He did a great job as coordinator and he has the respect of the players. I love the guy.”
Now Martz had Fewell on his staff as an assistant in St. Louis, so his comments should be taken with a grain of salt. In fact it wouldn’t surprise me if Martz was angling for a possible offensive coordinator position under his former assistant if in fact Fewell becomes a finalist for the permanent head coaching job for the Bills.
The NFL Network will carry Thursday night’s Bills game with an 8:20 pm kickoff. Locally in Buffalo the game will be aired on WKBW-TV Channel 7.
