Buffalo Bills great Steve Tasker fundamentally changed the special teams aspect of professional football, and many Bills fans have been adamant that Tasker belongs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks leads off with the news that Tasker is a semifinalist for the Hall of Fame’s Class of 2024 in the Senior, Coach/Contributor category.
Steve Tasker a Hall of Fame Senior semifinalist
Tasker is widely credited with affecting how teams play and prepare for special teams, and on Thursday, the Hall of Fame’s 12-person Seniors Committee advanced Tasker as one of 31 Senior semifinalists for the Class of 2024. His induction would be a long overdue move for the Bills Wall of Famer, who is perhaps the greatest special teamer in football’s storied history.
During his decorated career, Tasker earned seven Pro Bowl nods while transforming Buffalo into one of the most fearsome and respected special teams units in the history of the game.
