Top 50 Buffalo Bills

Say what you want about the Buffalo Bills in the early 1990’s.

At the end of the day there was only one professional football team that went to the Super Bowl four years in a row, and while they did not win any of them, or an Super Bowls for that matter, the accomplishment of getting there four times consecutively should be celebrated.

The history of the Buffalo Bills dates back to 1960, where they were charter members of the American Football League and were part of the AFL/NFL merger.  This list will include AFL accomplishments, and it is forgotten that the Bills were two time AFL Champions (1964 and 1965).

This list is up to the end of the 2015 regular season.

Note: Football lists are based on an amalgamation of tenure, traditional statistics, advanced statistics, playoff statistics and post-season accolades.
Three time First Team AFL All Pro Cornerback, Butch Byrd still holds the Buffalo Bills records for Interceptions, Interception Return Yards and Interceptions returned for Touchdowns.  Byrd was also a solid punt returner and was a named to the AFL All-Time Second Team.
Nate Odomes was another key member of the Buffalo Bills four AFC Championships and was the Interceptions leader in the National Football League in 1993.  The two time Pro Bowler would record key interceptions in both the famous Frank Reich comeback game and in Super Bowl XXVII.
Although he was considered undersized for a Defensive Tackle, it did not take Kyle Williams long to crack the Buffalo Bills starting lineup.  Once Williams did, he would stay there for the duration of his 13-year career and he would work his way into being one of the best in the National Football League.  A Bill throughout his career, Williams…

The Buffalo Bills of the 1960’s were loaded weren’t they?  Another member of those two AFL Championships was Safety, George Saimes, a three time First Team AFL All-Pro.  He was well regarded in the AFL for his ability to tackle opposing players in the open field.  Saimes is also a member of the All-Time AFL Roster.
The Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1987, Shane Conlan would build upon that three consecutive Pro Bowl campaigns.  He would be a quick fan favorite in Buffalo utilizing the same energy he brought as he did when he was a star at Penn State.
Henry Jones would have a monster year in 1982 where he would lead the NFL in Interceptions, Interception Return Yards and would be named a First Team All Pro.  Jones would never duplicate that year again, but he was a dependable starter for many years for the Bills.
Spending a decade in the trenches for the Buffalo Bills, Reggie McKenzie would have one excellent season in 1973 where he would be named a First Team All Pro.  McKenzie would start all 147 games he played in a Buffalo Bill uniform and had the honor of being the leader of the “Electric Company”, which O.J. Simpson referred the O-Line…
A popular player amongst the Buffalo Bills fans, Phil Hansen proved to be a solid Defensive End.  In his career (all with Buffalo) Hansen would record 61.5 Quarterback Sacks and would help the Bills make their first three Super Bowls.
Joe Devlin spent all thirteen of his NFL seasons on the offensive line for the Buffalo Bills, predominantly at the Right Tackle position.  Devlin was not a Pro Bowler, but was stable, especially at a time when the Bills did not have much of it. 
A Defensive End who spent all nine of his NFL seasons in Buffalo, Aaron Schobel would go to two Pro Bowls.  Schobel would record 78 Quarterback Sacks over his career.
One of the more tenured players with the Buffalo Bills, Tight End, Pete Metzelaars was a favorite of Jim Kelly’s and helped the team reached four Super Bowls.
One of the most dynamic players from the first decade of the existence of the Buffalo Bills, Elvert Dubenion was a fleet footed flanker who would capture the attention of the Bills fanbase.  An AFL All Star in 1964, Dubenion holds the record for the longest reception (93 Yards) in AFL history and is seventh all time in AFL Receptions…
Ron McDole would become a member of the AFL All Time Second Team and like so many who made our Buffalo Bills Top 50, McDole was a member of the two consecutive AFL Championship Teams.  McDole would also become a two time AFL All Star.
A ten year NFL veteran, all spent with the Buffalo Bills, Ben Williams made history in college as the first black football player for the University of Mississippi.  As a professional, Williams would make the Pro Bowl in 1982 and was an effective pass rusher.
A first round draft pick out of Arizona, John Fina would become a solid Offensive Tackle for the Buffalo Bills.  Fina would spend ten years with Buffalo.
Before he became a league official, Steve Freeman was a thirteen year veteran Safety, twelve of which were spent in Buffalo.  Freeman would accumulate 23 Interceptions, including seven in the 1980 season.
Playing ten of his eleven seasons with the Buffalo Bills, French born Cornerback, Charles Romes never missed a game as a Bill.  Romes would net 28 Interceptions over his career.
Spending six of his seventeen seasons with the Buffalo Bills, Ted Washington had his most productive campaigns in Western New York.  In Buffalo, Washington would make three Pro Bowls and record 19.5 Quarterback Sacks.
While the career of Buffalo Bills’ career of James Lofton was not long, it was explosive as the Hall of Fame became a much needed offensive weapon that Jim Kelly needed to break through and win the AFC, which he helped the Bills do three times.  Lofton would exceed the 1,000 Yard mark receiving in 1991, after doing that five…
