    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

      Andre Reed would be my sixth greatest. He was an awesome and strong receiver.

      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.

      Talley was the heart of the Buffalo Bills. I think all of the players would tell us that. However, I am going by accomplishments and impact on the field. He is one of my favorite Bills though.

    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?

  7. optimus grimlock profile image57
    optimus grimlockposted 6 years ago

    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?

        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.

    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.
