    This is not shocking whatsoever. Good for Doug, Helen & family.

    Draft Dalvin Cooke and I think they could be a top 12 team in the AFC next year.

    Congrats to DM. With all the young talent on hand, DM is well positioned to make a big difference. Great fit for him.

    Ranking under-25 talent of all 32 NFL teams

    Good for him. Worked out exactly as I expected it to when he took the AHC job there.

    Yeldon is a better RB at this time, Dalvin wouldn't make a big impact year one.

    please allow myself to congratulate ..myself

    from four years ago

    Maybe Marrone's commitment to SU should've been questioned all along

    "if marrone takes that job, he'll end up like mike mularkey. we all know what he does when he feels like his teams are less talented. he'll turtle up and punt like it's his job. the bills fans and media will make him return to thinking of Syracuse as an idyllic wonderland. then he'll pray some other awful joke of a franchise like jacksonville has to settle for him"

    I'm pretty sure I read on this board that Marrone would never get anothe NFL HC job.

    For many people here, this is almost as bad as Trump winning the Presidency. St. Doug's next miracle, a Superbowl for Jacksonville.

    Nah it's fun. Makes the bills yearly game against them more interesting.

    I've always said that if Mularkey gets another chance, anyone can.

    Low bar there works out for him. He can get them to .500 and people will be impressed

    Yeah St. Doug will work his mediocrity miracle again, and then find some way to bail on the job before it's complete.

    Still, immediately a better offense with Marrone at the helm and they have a lot of young talent on D. Excited to see what Doug can do.

    Bills organization is a mess. I just think JAX has been a mess on the field but seems relatively stable in the offices.

    probably right. maybe bortles is ready to make a jump. if marrone is comfortable with the qb and can relax, he can do well

    I am stunned.

    Forgetting the quitter stuff, which made for great copy and I'm bummed I couldn't get longer out of it, so much fun...why would they do that??

    They fired their guy with 2 games to go...to make an internal hire???!!

    Their offense sucked!!! He was a big part of the offense!! Not The biggest because...HE CANT CALL PLAYS!!!!

    He must've been undermining his boss something fierce, a real chickenshit tattling to the owner. Wow.

    Just wow.

    Tend to agree, Doug will get them to 8-9 wins I would imagine. Hopefully, he is comfortable in JVille already knowing the players as well and doesn't need to be a complete paranoid touch hole like he was most of the time in Buffalo

    We have a conflict. Your hero fat Mike on the Fan is high on Marrone. He says the people in the league are high on Marrone. You must be torn at the seems over this.

    Gus Bradley was a bad HC. Marrone prepared them better the last 2 games and it just showed on the field how they weren't down 2 scores in the first quarter in either game. The Jags were the worst first quarter team in the NFL under Bradley.

    They are stuck with Bortles but I think Douglas can easily double their win total next year.

    How the Bills have behaved in the Pegula Era had to help Marrone. They kept the GM out of the loop when they fired Rex Ryan and Doug Whaley's post season PC was cringe worthy.
    Those episodes had to give Marrone some cover as to why he left a HC gig to become a AHC.

    Well, that would be the case if he wasn't trying to double dip and take the Jets job.
