Doug Marrone didn’t bother waiting for a question Sunday before breaking into a narrative that answered them all. He wasted little time in getting to the heart of the matter, which was one way of saying he spoke from the heart while trying to pull the proverbial stake that the game left behind.
“Obviously, it hurts, all right?” Marrone said. “It hurts me. It hurts the guys in that room. I hurt for them. I hurt for our fans. It’s tough. It’s a tough one. There were a lot of good things that happened on that field today.
“At the end of the day, it’s so close from being a good football team in this league. You saw it. They’re an 8-0 football team, 9-0 now, and we’re 3-6. When it’s time to make the plays, you have to make the plays. We didn’t do that. It hurts because we’ve got great fans, great people, guys play hard.”
