Buffalo Bills: Things We Know This Week



The appeal for another encore presentation of recent articles glancing back in history has been vigorous. Rumor has it that about ten people read my articles weekly. Pretty impressive? Not too shabby considering my wife, sister, and mother are only 30 percent of my audience. Kind of a BIG-DEAL? HUH? Some requested Rufus to provide a phone booth while others wanted the relaxation of a quantum leaping Hot Tub. I thought a DeLorean using the Flux Capacitor would be sufficient. One suggestion was to gallivant with the Ghost of Christmas Past. Seven out of ten of my regular readers voted in favor to migrate back in time once again. The folks against this had the early lead of 3-0, which was misleading. Somehow, when I went to bed, seven votes were found in my favor by morning sealing the landslide win… Imagine that? Nothing to see here.

You know the drill from previous weeks. We were taking a look at the year, 1988, the last time the Buffalo bills had an 11-3 record after 14 games. The current Bills are in good company with that beginning of the ALMOST-A-DYNASTY-TEAM from the late ’80s and ’90s. Just saying…

Things we know about the Buffalo Bills this week:

  • Merry Christmas. With a victory Saturday against Denver, Buffalo clinched a playoff berth for the third time in four seasons. Impressed? Well, they are also AFC East Champions for the first time since 1995. Josh Allen was not even born yet when Buffalo last won the division title. Long overdue.
  • The Bills are in the top three NFL Power Rankings. Giddyup
  • Governor Cuomo says that if there’s a “smart, science-based way” to open Bills Stadium to fans, he’ll do it. He would love nothing more than to allow Bills fans and Buffalonians to enjoy the moment, as it’s an exciting time to be a Bills fan. “They have hung in there, and it’s fun hanging in a bar with you. I’m going to be curious to see where we are when the Bills are in the playoffs. If they get a bye, it will be in the middle of January. There are stadiums that have allowed people, but it depends on the situation in Buffalo.”
  • “I’d be surprised if Josh doesn’t break all my records. Then, after he continues to grow, he’ll start breaking his own records.”- Jim Kelly

I am semi-retired leaving my enjoyable 24 year management career due to multiple health issues. My dad retired from The Buffalo News after 49 years. I have been an avid fan for quite some time. Got that Marv Levy Fight Song In My Head for absolutely no reason.
