Buffalo just went through one of the biggest snowstorms in recent history over the last 36 hours. Some areas received over 6 feet of snow. It stranded many motorists, and–according to the Buffalo News–Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone was among the many valiant people of Buffalo who stepped up to help those who needed assistance.

Luckily for the Bills players, Tuesday was their normal off day, so they didn’t have to travel at all. Marrone was still on his way to Ralph Wilson Stadium. That’s even though people had been told to stay off the roads. Marrone obviously believed that he had to get to the stadium to work on game planning for this Sunday’s home game against the Miami Dolphins. Buffalo still has an outside chance of making the playoffs, but needs to win against the Dolphins to remain alive.
Marrone added to the newspaper that “all of my life people have been telling me what I can’t do”. Obviously, his plan was clear in wanting to go out even with all that snow flying around. It is great that he stopped to help out in the process though so people who actually wanted to be home could get there. Maybe the good karma brings the team a win this weekend.
