Are the Buffalo Bills (under the McBeane regime) perennial contenders?

The McBeane era has been around long enough for us to make some pretty clear judgements about their performance. Some would say it has been inconsistent at best considering they've had Josh Allen taking snaps under center. However, calling the Bills a "perennial contender" under these guys is very debatable. One definition of perennial is "persistent, enduring; continuing without interruption". I think the term contender can be put under scrutiny here too. Being a contender in the NFL could mean you're in the conversation at any point in the season as a team that can win the Lombardi Trophy, right? In my opinion, the Bills were perennial contenders from 88'-93' and that might be a stretch considering the great runs in NFL history. What do you all think?
