Another very long NFL off-season is about 48 hours from concluding for Buffalo Bills fans, as the team will report to St. John Fisher College on Wednesday for the start of 2012 training camp.
I, for one, am glad to see the off-season reach its conclusion. I've also been baffled, however, by the number of fans that have emailed me asking for one final look back at what has, admittedly, been a very fun off-season for our favorite football team.
Why not? Things have really died down over the last couple of months, and there's nothing fundamentally wrong with fondly recalling exciting moments before we return to business as usual. After the jump, if you're so inclined, you can re-visit this community's reaction following the seven biggest events of the off-season. Then it'll be over, and we'll be all football all the time moving forward.
