How sad can a head coach be after a loss? Well, just ask Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone who isn’t so good with this losing thing. Apparently the first year head coach was so upset with the Bills most recent loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon that he claimed he was refusing to pet his dog when he got home.
Wait, what? Marrone was upset after his unproven backup quarterback threw a pick-six and had trouble getting the Bills’ offense to catch fire. So upset, in fact, that his dog will feel very unappreciated at night.
Here’s what Marrone had to say after the game:
“I’m pissed. I’m going to use that type of energy. I’m going to go home, not talk to anybody, just shut it down. I’m going to be by myself, I’m not going to pet my dog and I’m going to get fired up. 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 and what can we do better.”
Normal coach speak, or is it? Well, for the most part it was except for the whole not petting his dog that night part. Poor dog.
I get it that he was very upset about the loss, but who expected the Bills to beat the Chiefs on Sunday? No one. His team kept it close and that’s all he could ask for.
Now he has to look forward to getting EJ Manuel back at quarterback this week.
