That was fast. He must have been on a short leash. Who takes his place ?

Well can't blame them for that, he has done a very very poor job... Bring back Moorman?

At least Marrone is willing to get his hands dirty.

Hopefully he had a long conversation with Hackett too.

Moorman!! And use him to run some fake punts. He was always good at those.

Admit a mistake and move on. This had to happen and this is what good organizations do. Powell has the tools but has never been consistent enough on Sundays.

Good call.  The guy was hurting the team.  

Good luck to Powell though.  Hopefully he can turn it around and have a career,

No nonsense from this team.  It's the right decision; he has been brutal and could have cost the Bills a W last night.

Powell had a good preseason, but stunk when it mattered most.

On a different note, I think they might be making a mistake if they get rid of Carpenter. That guy has a good leg for long field goals and kickoffs.
