*Warning, this article is incredibly kickass. I was a Giant fan until 09 (a switch that would be made with my brother who would attend the University at Buffalo leading to me being interested in the professional sports in Buffalo. I was very intrigued by the CJ Spiller pick when it went down, and I constantly focused on the Bills in the draft as it went along. I would then start to strictly watch Bills games (I remember my first game as a true fan in which Trent Edwards threw that pass to Roscoe Parrish for the TEED, but we couldn't seal the deal in the end. Then I would watch them become an 0-8 squad, but for some reason I didnt loose faith. The Bills as a franchise; The Ralph, The Grind, Circling The Wagons, and Die Hard Fans all remained strongly present in my mind. The way our roster has changed in these past 3 years is incredible, as well well as the talent that has stepped up (for example; Fred Jackson, Stevie Johnson). The sky is the limit for this franchise if handled in the right hands, and Buddy Nix is proving he can be the game-changer for not only the team, but the Bills community.
We have come a long way in the span of eight months. It was an emotional roller coaster as we saw some of our best players get injured (thus shortening their seasons) and our beloved squad turn from Contenders, to Surrender-ers. We simply didn't have the depth to stroll through the second half of the season as winners. Times have changed with this franchise. Buddy Nix has drafted hard-nosed football players with high football IQs, while managing to find hidden gems from the Jauron era. Nix also made a memorable splash (s) in free agency this off-season...Now we are talking business. This season, we are rolling with a new-look team which has a ceiling of accomplishing milestones the Bills achieved the early 90's...And beyond. I am so confident in this squad that I will be throwing $100 of my money to Bovada (formerly known as Bodog) in a parlay in which the Bills will win the AFC East, the AFC, and the Super Bowl. Read my follow up story; Ten Reasons Why the Bills Can Win the Super Bowl, to see why I have this kind of confidence instilled into this squad (COMING SOON). Without taxes taken out, we are talking +$!,000,000. It is more than the money, it is making a statement for the Bills and the great community. Hopefully I can defeat the odds and win it.
