Bills fighting a losing battle with culture of failure - The Buffalo News
"Marrone made a good point about the younger players on his roster. All have been successful throughout their careers, which is how they reached the NFL in the first place. Most have come from strong college programs. The Bills overhauled the roster. The woe-is-me mentality shouldn’t be imbedded in this team." That's the most positive paragraph in this entire Bucky Gleason article.

"Here's exactly what happened. One, we didn't see the bean bag thrown for them to say that it was a fumble. We had 100 percent information that it was a fumble. But then what happened is, from where I was, I saw Manny get up and point that we had the ball," Marrone said, referring to Bills linebacker Manny Lawson. "So as we're waiting to get the feed, which we didn’t get that feed nor did the officials get that feed, New England's trying to hurry up. So I’m trying to put two and two together."

WGR 550 SportsRadio - Bills' Marrone Likens Analytics In Football To Poker
"That's just -- and I always try to explain this probably to my wife more than anybody because she reads it -- is that that's taking those situations based on down and distance. What that doesn't do is take into a situation of field position. These percentages and analytics for field position equal to points -- X-amount of yards and the start of field position equals the other team getting X-amount of points. It all really depends on what you believe from a philosophy standpoint, and I think you have to look at all of them and weigh them in and how you play them."
