alright, just because of the enthusiasm here,
I'll be a Bills fan for the AFC ,

still gotta love My Bears too , though, one year soon they'll return
(but not with Kyle Orton at the helm, nor Lovie Smith for that matter)

I have to really agree with #6. There is very little difference between the better teams of the NFL and the average teams of the NFL. Some teams have great talent, but team organization or coaching is in the dumps. Some teams have the organization and decent talent, but get hit with a major injury. The Giants struggling with the Bengals, Washington beating Dallas, Dolphins beating NE, etc. shows it doesn't matter what division you are in.

The Bills are learning how to win, are staying relatively healthy, have an excellent organization, have developed their offensive and defensive lines, and are adding a few star players. This is all adding up to a great turn around and possibly a successful season. There are flaws in every team. Minimizing those, and maximizing the positive will go a long way.

Oh, and I have been a Bills fan a long time too, and was greatly disappointed when the Bills went with Kemp and traded Daryl Lamonica. I think they went with leadership over talent, so who is to say?

Hey Alex,

Holy Cow. Still tossing around that Kemp-Lamonica thing makes you as old a Bills fan as me. How many games (at $5 a pop for good seats) did you see in the Rockpile?

But, wait. There are more important issues to be settled. This JohnN guy thinks he might want to be a Bills fan all of a sudden. I don't know about you, but somehow this spur of the moment band wagon boarding seems to be kind of shallow and insincere. You know, as the season progresses we're gonnna see Bills fans everywhere. You won't even be able to get into Crazy Gringos! They will swear their loyalty but they won't have any idea of who Steve Tasker or Jim Braxton are, much less Mike Stratton or Elbert Dubenion. Don't you think we'd better to come up with some entry requirements?

How about making it a requirement that they still have a set of milk bottle caps of the '64 champiionship team? Or be able to know who the electric company were that powered the Juice? Or name one corner of the Bermuda Triangle? What will the persona be of this new team? Time will tell.

Oh, give John a break. After all, we borrowed Da Bills from Da Bears. And we did get their coach.....

You guys are a bunch of newcomers to the bandwagon! Who was the first Bills player? A Beef on 'Weck for the winner.

Mallory, I have to be honest here. I thought it was Richie Lucus, as he was our first draft choice, but I see you are looking for Joe Schaffer who signed on December 5, 1959. Yes, I own a copy of Relentless. That alone should make me a real Bills fan.

oh, I remember the Bills past vividly and fondly, though not a Buffalo kid,
Jack Kemp, Daryl Lamonica, some guy named Juice LOL


I do like Dick Jauron,

good luck Bills, I think you'll make the playoffs and win the division,
then the fun begins. I picked Jax as my SuperBowl contender,
I think Buffalo and Jax in the AFC final.

I MIGHT be tempted to root for Buffalo if that happens LOLOL, good luck all

Well guys, I am not only a Bills fan, but I live 3 miles from "THE RALPH'. It is always a great turnout here and the 4 & 0 is really exciting everyone up here in Western New York. I'm coming down the end of October and may see some of you at Crazy Gringos. Thanks for the support. JanetandCarol

All right, you are a fan if you remember "The Hit". BTW, I grew up in Akron (NY).
