    Im sure he did want more experience, possible someone off the Saints staff, but Hackett has experience running the offense Marrone wants to install here in Buffalo.

    Successful experience would have been better, tho. Perhaps he should have set the bar a little higher.
    justRN: "They carted off Freddies ACL after he ripped it out for being weak."

    Mark Asper: "He'd come smashing in there and make a big play and he has no emotion. He just goes back to the defensive huddle, and we had to trash talk for him. Our big line was 'Kiko Smash.' "#TheLegendOfKikoAlonzo

    He has had success. I also think he straightened out the lions special teams after a horrendous start last season.

    For 2 games they were really bad, straightened it out during the bye. The final 12 games no TD's and the coverage average for kicks and punts was outstanding, Thats why he wasnt getting fired, because he straightened them out.

    Experience at STs is what we had with the old staff had but now I'm not so sure, it sure looks like he just hired him because of friendship not experience and the will to want to be in Buffalo because our last STs coach wanted to be here and did a great job here with his experience.
