I am a huge Buffalo Bills fan. I saw a book commemorating their 50th Anniversay. Seeing the book brought this question to my mind. It's tough but I think the five greatest Bills are:
1. Jim Kelly
2. Bruce Smith
3. OJ Simpson
4. Thurman Thomas
5. Jack Kemp
1. OJ Simpson
2. Thurman Thomas
3. Bruce Smith
4. Andre Reed
5. Jim Kelly
If I can find the time. A lot going on during the school year where I work. I love to write. Unfortunately, I am not as quick or prolific. It may take a while before u see it.
Thanks for the encouragement. (1,582 posts is awesome)!
start the hub slowly. . make it a work in progress. . . you know the players you think are the top five I am sure. . so just start there. . and everytime you go back to it, add or edit and then. . when you are happy with it and are ready to publish it you will be even happier with the results.
What about Darryl Talley? I hoped I spelled it right. He was one of their best defensive players, plus the entire NFL.
marvcus patton was better then talley and I would put don bebe ahead of both of them!
BeBe was awesome. I'll never forget him running Leon Lett down in the Super Bowl, or when he bounced off his head in the playoffs when he went up in the air and caught a ball. However, with there only being 5, he would've had to beat out Reed as the greatest receiver.
What type of careers do you think Ryan Fitzpatrick and Freddie Jackson will have for the Bills?
I think fitzpatrick will be one of the best qb's after kelly and kemp. Jackson is having his 1st big year so its hard to say I dont think he's be compared to thurman or oj but hes better then antwuan smith.
this name might come out of (wide) right field, but how about Scott Norwood?
one of the greatest moments in football
Wide Right Norwood goes down in New York NFL History
I thought Jets fans hated the Giants. Norwood was a pretty good kicker who just happened to miss a tough field goal at a moment when the whole world was watching. 47-yards on grass (and not that nice grass they have on fields today -- we're talking about that garbage dump that was Tampa Stadium) is not a gimme for any kicker.
Take it EZ. You won't get any love here throwing shots like that. People love piling on the Bills, but who's laughing so far this year!
1. Jim Kelly
2. Bruce Smith
3. O.J. Simpson
4. Thurman Thomas
5. Cornelius Bennett
Honorable mention: Andre Reed, Darryl Talley, Steve Tasker, Steve Christie, Joe DeLamielleure, and the recently deceased Kent Hull
You can make an argument for Steve Tasker. He is possibly the greatest special teams player to play the game (non-punt and kick off returner). You can also put Kent Hull in the conversation. He is arguably the greatest Buffalo Bill offensive lineman.
Yeah, Kent Hull was the key to a productive K-Gun offense during those Super Bowl years. Directing the blocking schemes correctly is critical when defenses know the best way to stop the offense is to send a variety of blitz packages. I really believe Jim Kelly and Thurman Thomas are Hall of Famers thanks to Kent Hull. I can't think of any non-returner who was a more important special teams player than Steve Tasker.
and you wont laugh when fitzpatrick puts it on that jets defence!

Where is the best place to watch a Buffalo Bills game in Toronto?I am heading to Toronto later this year and I am looking for a place to watch the game. There aren't any official Bills Backers bars in Toronto, but are there any unofficial ones? Are Bills games normally on TV in Toronto? Or is a bar...

Who do you think will finish this season as the worst team in the NFL?As an Eagles fan of many years, I'm dismayed by their prospects this year (at this very moment, they are struggling to beat the Lions. The Lions! Bleh. Anyway, I'm hoping some other team (e.g., Oakland or the...

Does Thurman Munson belong in the Hall of Fame?One of the greatest catchers in Yankee history. Although by today's standards, he doesn't have the numbers, he was a true winner. '76 MVP, 2-time World Series Champion and 3-time Gold Glover.

With the previous and recent speculation that Lebron James is overrated I figured, Let me ask THE question. "King James" as some call him was coined as the "next Jordan" even before entering the league, but after several failed attempts to win an NBA championship as the...
