    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
