You won't have to wait much longer for that long-awaited 30 for 30 documentary on the Super Bowl era Buffalo Bills of the early 1990s, according to TV critic Alan Pergament of The Buffalo News. The two-hour "Four Falls of Buffalo" will air nationally on ESPN on December 12, after the network's Heisman Trophy presentation.

The documentary will feature interviews with many former players, coaches, and others surrounding those great teams, and is spun in a positive tone highlighting the resiliency it took to make it to four consecutive championship games. That feat is still unparalleled in league history.

This is the NFL Films summary of the documentary, as edited by Pergament:

The 1990-93 Buffalo Bills are the only team to play in four straight Super Bowls. They brought warmth and heart to one of the NFL’s coldest and smallest cities. Five of their players and the coach are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Yet their very name would become the butt of a cruel joke: BILLS stands for ‘Boy I Love Losing Super Bowls.’ In this poignant and vivid remembrance... those teams are restored to their proper place in history. Yes, viewers will feel the anguish of kicker Scott Norwood after Super Bowl XXV. But they’ll also get a sense of how resilient the man, the franchise and the city really are.

It is directed by the same man who helmed the successful "From Elway to Marino," Ken Rodgers, and is a must-see for Bills fans everywhere. Make sure December 12 is marked up on your calendar.
