The Buffalo Bills year-in-review video for the 2014 season debuted Sunday night on the NFL Network.
Some viewers pointed out that it was missing one thing: A shot of the head coach.
And Bills fans seem to be just fine with that: No Doug Marrone? No problem.
For decades, these kind of team-produced year-in-review videos have looked at the past season through the rosiest of rose-colored helmet visors. The accounts are certainly more infomercial rather than a straightforward account of what happened in a particular season, and the 22-minute highlight video has plenty of actual highlights to get to. However, the lack of a head coach shot still got plenty of fans talking about it -- very positively -- on Twitter.
The video is available here.
The producer of the video, Western New York native and Pegula Sports and Entertainment senior producer Michelle Girardi Zumwalt (who came over from NFL Films), acknowledged as much regarding Marrone's absence from the video via Twitter conversations Sunday night.
A clear sign that the video lines up on the strong side of the Bills' perspective is that the title of the video is branded with the slogan that Terry (already the owner of the Buffalo Sabres) and Kim Pegula introduced following their acquisition of the Buffalo Bills. The title is: #OneBuffalo.
Helmet slaps and shoulder-pad pounds go to Girardi (a Nardin and St. John Fisher grad who came to the land of #OneBuffalo after a decade at NFL Films and has three Emmys to her credit) for explaining the aim of the videos.
