Sully on Marrone as a New York guy.
"Marrone is a football coach, not a statesman. Like most of the men in his profession, he seems practiced in the art of saying nothing, with a certain air of authority. He danced around many of the pertinent football questions during a half-hour session with the media.
"But Marrone knew enough to play to the sympathies of fans who are always eager to embrace athletes and coaches who sound and feel like one of them."
... and ...
"However thick his skin, Marrone strikes me as a guy with an edge, a coach who will demand a high standard from his players and everyone else in the organization. I don’t care if he came from college. An NFL player will respond to a coach who is consistent and fair, and who makes him better.
"Marrone might be the sort to push back when the media ask the tough questions. That’s fine. After seven years of Jauron and Gailey, who had the emotional range of a monk, it would be refreshing to deal with a coach with a volatile side."
