Brandon Praises Coach Marrone
C.J. Spiller has yet to be activated from the IR/designated to return list but was limited in practice today. Scott Chandler was the only player sitting out as he was ill. Chris Gragg was back on the practice field for the first time since injuring his knee against the Jets. Duke Williams is still going through the concussion protocols but was limited in practice today along with fellow safety Da'Norris Searcy who has a hamstring injury. Russ Brandon spoke glowingly about Coach Marrone during his WGR radio appearance. He said he has done an incredible job in the past year especially after you reflect on the major changes that the club has had over the past year including the stadium renovations, prolonged training camp, historic snowstorm, death of the owner, and ownership change in the middle of the season. To be in the position they are today is a credit to him. He has brought a level of consistency and empowerment and he has everyone holding themselves accountable. He doesn't even know why Marrone returning would even be a topic of discussion. He feels it is a great partnership between Marrone and Doug Whaley saying they have done a great job. The Bills made room on the 53 man roster today to activate C.J. Spiller by releasing FB Frank Summers who had been inactive the past four weeks. He was the only true fullback on the roster although TE MarQuies Gray has seen time in the backfield. Many are talking about the shocking 21-13 win over Green Bay as a monumental win for the franchise but the bottom line is it didn't help their playoff chances that much. Their chances of making the playoffs only went up very slightly with less than a 10% chance of making the playoffs. To qualify for the postseason for the first time in 14 years they need to win out which would include their first ever win at Gillette Stadium. They would then need only two of following five teams to finish with 10 wins, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Kansas City, and San Diego. The Bills don't hold the tiebreaker against any of these teams. Tony Bogyo's weekly column is up breaking down the win over the Packers and what could have been. More...
