Doug Marrone on moving forward: 'I'm going to be a pro, be a man'

By Tim Graham

Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone didn't hide his dissatisfaction over this afternoon's 23-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The Bills had 470 yards of offense, including 241 on the ground. But the Bills committed three turnovers. Two of them were returned for touchdowns.

Buffalo News columnist Bucky Gleason asked Marrone how the Bills, after 14 years of failing, can stop losing games like this.

Marrone's reply:

"I'm freaking going to ... I'm pissed. I'm going to use that type of energy, and I'm going to go home. I'm not going to talk to anybody. I'm just going to shut it down, be by myself. I'm not going to pet my dog. I'm going to get fired up, and I'm going to come to work tomorrow. I'm going to watch this film.

"I'm going to be a pro. I'm going to be a man. I'm just going to look at it. What can we do better? How do we coach things better situationally? What can I do first? What can the coaches do second?

"We're going to work and get ready to go. I mean, we're not out of the playoffs. We're a good football team that's not making the plays that it has to make. We play extremely hard. We fight through adversity. But we're just not making the plays at the times we need to make it, and that's everybody."
