BBR: As a Buffalo Bills fan, I can finally let go of the past

The Buffalo Bills have arrived, and I’m keeping my emotions in check

This week’s episode of Breaking Buffalo Rumblings is a bit of a break from the normal. Rather than talking about last week’s game or an upcoming opponent, this episode focuses more on a realization that hit me as a fan this past weekend.

For a long period of time, many Buffalo Bills fans would be able to admit that two things are very true in that, 1) we have a love for the Bills teams from the Super Bowl era, and 2) two decades of failure that followed the Super Bowl have led us to expect the worst related to our team. In this episode I talk about letting go of these two things, and embracing the fact that the Buffalo Bills are a good football team.

For so many of us we have waited years for this team to be good, and now we know that they are that and more. Josh Allen has become a household name across the country, Stefon Diggs is a bonafide star, and the defense looks like the unit we remembered from last year. This team is fun to watch—and not just for fans from Western New York—but for football fans across the country. Rather than ramble on here, in this episode I did my best to capture these feelings, and how it can impact future generations of fans.

After you get a chance to listen to the podcast, I would encourage you to share your thoughts and stories in the comments section. This episode hit me a bit different than others I have done in the past, and I truly appreciate you taking the time to listen and comment.
