What the Super Mario signing means

Not only does it provide the Bills with a legitimate superstar at a position that they have been trying to fill since Bruuuce, Wiley and Schobel left but it is a boost to the psyche to the team, to the city and to the fans. The Bills and their loyal followers needed this signing as much if not more then when Polian signed Jim Kelly back in 1986. Obviously, having a franchise QB is a lot harder to find but when Kelly signed the Bills last playoff appearance was in 1981. The Bills have not made the playoffs since 1999 and lost in the famous “Music City Miracle” game. Twelve years of non-playoff appearances have numbed the fans and stagnated the franchise! Hard to believe but the last time the Bills sniffed the playoffs were in 2004 when they lost to the Steelers (who were resting their starters) in the last game of the season. The sad part is if the Bills win they were in~ lose and they’re out!

There will be they nay-sayers that will point to his injury problems or state that the Bills overpaid but does any of us care really care? We now have our messiah to lead us out of the darkness and into the light…..

This signing gives the Bills flexibility in round 1 the up coming draft, do they continue to build the defense or go for the LT that they have been searching for years? As much as I want to see LB/DE Upshaw on the team there is no way I could argue with them taking a LT such as Martin or Reiff

My draft wish list:

1) Upshaw ~another piece to the defensive puzzle, LB or DE and Kelsay isn’t getting any younger

2) Martin or Reiff~like the DE position the Bills have been in the hunt for a LT for what seems like an eternity

3) Kirkpatrick~as many DB’s that the Bills have drafted they still need help, McGee is brittle and McKelvin is average at best

4) Floyd or Jeffery~ big targets for Fitz to throw to but both lack blazing speed

5) Richardson~don’t laugh, this RB is a work horse along the lines of Adrain Peterson and Fast Freddy is on the wrong side of 30

The signing of Mario just makes this draft so much more interesting with so many options but Chan and Buddy will stick to the best player available approach no matter what position.

I’m ready for training camp to begin are you!!!!!!

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
