1. Bruce Smith

Bruce Smith was the first overall Draft Pick of 1985 and he did not disappoint the fans of the Buffalo Bills.  Smith would become the leader of the Bills defense for years and would emerge as the most dominating Quarterback destroyer in history amassing 200 Quarterback Sacks (171 with Buffalo) and is the all-time leader in that category.

The Top 50 Buffalo Bills of All Time

Regular visitors to might have noticed that we have been working on the top fifty players of each North American franchise.  We are continuing this with the look at our second NFL franchise, the Buffalo Bills.

The Buffalo Bills are the only team in NFL history to make the Super Bowl four times.  Granted, the team from Western New York lost on all four occasions but over time the accomplishments involved to get there are celebrated more and more.

At present, this list reflects accomplishments up to the end of the 2015 season.

The list is based on traditional metrics advanced metrics, length of service, popularity, and post season performance.

The complete list can be found here, but for those who are curious immediately as to who the top five are, we’ll grant that immediately:

1. Bruce Smith

2. Thurman Thomas

3. Jim Kelly

4. Andre Reed

5. O.J. Simpson

Which team are we working on next?

We will turn our attention to the diamond and the Washington Nationals.

219. Public Image Ltd.

Is it wrong for us to see this band get inducted just to see what kind of letter John Lydon (Johnny Rotten) would write to the Hall next? Seriously, when our little committee got together that topic was all we could talk about for an hour. With that said, though Public Image Ltd., will never approach the legacy of Lydon’s first band, the Sex Pistols, is it possible that PIL was actually a better group than the Pistols?
