    Pergula made his money in wildcat energy. A few employees and a big strike and your rich. Bully for him. Kahn built a large manufacturing company with many employees. Kahn made many personnel hires that made his company. I believe he is a better judge of talent.

    Unbelievable Doug hatred around here. Here's a very simple fact that you can try to spin but it's a fact regardless. In the last 12 years the Bills have had 1 winning season, DM was the coach. They have had 2 non-losing seasons. One obviously was the year he went 9-7, the second was the year after he left. Syracuse football has had 3 winning seasons in the past 12 years. DM was coach for 2 and the other was following the year he left. 2 years after DM left both the Bills and Syracuse, both team had losing records once again. DM is a good coach. People love to give Schwartz the credit, it doesn't work that way. DM has been a HC at 2 places, both times they had excellent defenses. If you want to credit the coordinators then that's fine, I have no issue with that. However DM seems to have a pretty good feel for whose going to be a great D coordinator and gets them on his staff. That's a HC's job. So Doug does his job but the credit goes to the other guy. Funny, if the defense was crap do you only blame the DC? Didn't think so.

    I don't see many people arguing that Marrone is not a good coach. I do see people saying it's impossible to know if he's anything more than that because he has never stuck to a job long enough to know.

    It will be interesting to see if he'll change his style.

    No one is impressed with a *9-7 season except the delusional Marrone apologists (and now a few rationalizing Jaguars fans).

    But regardless, Marrone does some good things. He's extremely well-organized and his disciplinarian style could work for some teams I'm sure.

    But I'm just not sure how much credit he should receive for that epic *9-7 Bills season. He's a bad game manager and his propensity for punting is a serious problem and indicative of a lack of understanding of basic probability. He's an offensive coach and his offense was terrible and held that 2014 team back despite Schwartz's excellent defense.

    If Marrone wasn't such a headcase who had no problem burning bridges on his way out of jobs then he wouldn't have so many "haters." Referring to himself as Saint Doug and leaving the Bills because he thought for sure he'd at least receive the Jets job is funny.

    He makes a target for himself as a result of his actions.

    There are none here that hate Doug. None.

    The argument lies in a) How good of a job he did here (between great! and mediocre) b) How bad of a lurch he left us in on the eve of joining the ACC and how much he damage he did when he took so many assistants c) How bad of a decision it was to leave Buffalo the way he did.

    I'm rooting for him to succeed at Jax. He's forever orange.

    Question - How do you know he thought he would get the Jets job?

    Because he left a HC position at an organization where the owner is willing to spend whatever it takes to win a championship. Plus all of the "sources" were saying he was the front-runner for the Jets job until a fan and media uproar.

    No - it's just not butt kissing. There is room to argue between "mediocre and good" without being a hater.
