“As a coach the earlier it can get done the better,” said Marrone, 48, who Buffalo hired in January. “I’d be a fool to sit here and say otherwise. At what point? I don’t know.”
After tossing 28 scores, against 25 picks, for 5,206 yards over 34 games as a professional, Buffalo signed the 28-year-old Kolb to a two-year deal worth $13 million in March.
If protected in the pocket and surrounded by adequate talent, Kolb should be able to somewhat impress as a Bill in “The City of No Illusions.”
Removed from a pathetic 6-10 campaign and having not qualified for the playoffs since 1999, Kolb is an ideal short-term solution for Buffalo.
In stark contrast, Manuel is quickly flustered when pressured and the youngster would get slaughtered performing in 2013.
A standout athlete brimming with testicular fortitude, smarts and dedication, the native Virginian will eventually mature into a solid Bill.
Nevertheless, Doug Marrone would “be a fool to” not place Kevin Kolb under center against the Patriots in New England on September 8.by
