Voting under way on all-time Buffalo Bills squad

Filed under: Sports — pauljlane @ 2:04 pm

As part of the team’s 50th anniversary celebration, the Buffalo Bills have opened up voting on the team’s Web site for the public to select the all-time Bills squad.

Voting is now underway for offense and special teams, with defensive and coach voting to take place later on. Voting will end April 19, with the all-time team to be unveiled April 25.

Some choices (Jim Kelly) are obvious, but others (Thurman Thomas or pre-incarceration O.J. Simpson) will be tougher. Also, while Andre Reed is the obvious No. 1 wide receiver, will you pick Lee Evans, Jerry Butler, James Lofton or Eric Moulds for Nos. 2 and 3? The final results should be interesting.

The team also unveiled a 50th anniversary logo that incorporates the classic and modern Bills helmet logos (it can be viewed on the team’s site). Various contests will also be held on the team Web site and through local grocers. The Bills also announced a bunch of other sponsorships, but I won’t get into those here.

Is anyone out there excited about this anniversary, or is there more trepidation about the team’s perilous state within the Western New York community? Please share your thoughts.

  1. Looking at the possibilities, I had a few thoughts about my votes.

    My first thought is how sparse the offensive talent has been since the Super Bowl years. There were only a few eligible players and most of those were ridiculous (Antowain Smith?)…and wayyyy too early to put on this list (Lee Evans and Jason Peters)…I think Ruben Brown was the most legit recent possibility.

    Secondly…Paul…I want a moratorium from all members of the local media on even mentioning the Bill’s possibly moving from Buffalo until Ralph Wilson dies.
