Just wondering if anyone caught Coach Marrone on the NFL network tonight.  I missed it and was wondering if he had anything to say that is of interest or that we might not have heard before.

Thank you!

Yeah i saw it, the anchor was asking really dumb questions, like please tell me who are you going to pick at 8? Anyways he said he a great conversation with Matt Barkley and he seems intelligent about the system there running in buffalo. From what i came away with is that we will be drafting a Nassib or Barkely hands down. I dont think @ 8 though.

If its not at #8 its not going to happen. QB's are climbing the charts and if you have a guy you want you take him, you do NOT wait and hope he is there later and you do NOT SETTLE!

I guess I didn't come away with that.  He was being very tight lipped on draft strategy as he should be.  Saying once again "we are in the information gathering business, not sharing".

What I came away with was a no-nonsense demeanor.  Frankly I thought he made kind of an ass out of that dweeb that was asking the questions.  Or maybe, the reporter did a good job of that on his own.

Bottom line, from a strategy/ draft perspective you didn't miss anything.  It was nice to see him on the network though.

Thanks jb.
This Marrone character certainly has me interested from all i have read and watched so far as the Bills HC.

We need a QB. But we don't want to whiff on value @ #8

My most clear impression of Marrone so far is that like Belichick, he's absolutely mastered the art of talking yet saying nothing.

We watched the interview.  I really like this guy...unfortunately I liked Gailey at the start.  He reminds me of O'Brien at Penn State and I know that's college and that's where Marone is coming from but their demeanor seems similar.  I'm willing to wait and see and hope for the best.  I did say after the interview its amazing how much these guys talk without saying anything.  Go Bills!

I really hope this is true.
I think having someone like Buddy who reveals all his cards really hurts the team. I'm surprised they haven't cut him off from the media (and any phone calls)

I'd say DO NOT SETTLE for any of this year's QBs...  Once we draft one we are stuck with them for at least a few years even if they stink.  Having them will prevent the team from getting a better one next year...

At the end of "Path To The Draft" today Charley Casserly said he's hearing the Bills like Barkley or Glennon in the 2nd...

Just thought I'd pass it on... B-)

There's no such thing as "climbing the charts". That's all media BS.  Every GM, former GM and personnel guy interviewed says their draft board is pretty much set weeks ahead of time, with very minor adjustments.

Exactly.

I feel that they got Kolb so that they do not have to reach at 8 for a non-top 10  QB

SF is likely to be packaging up picks to someone come draft day....They have few and very specific needs for their SB-ready roster.  I'm hoping the #8 slot is where SF can target Vaccaro -  we then get our QB late 1.......and plug away the holes with 4  more picks in 2/3.
