New, comments

Buffalo Bills fans put together their plans for improving the team in February. Which is your favorite?

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Congratulations to all the participants in this year's Buffalo Rumblings Offseason Plan competition! We had 35 entries submitted, and as always, there were several interesting and creative choices made (though none of them involved trading Kiko Alonso for LeSean McCoy).

You voted, and that gave us the five finalists who had the highest cumulative score. Read through the summary for each plan, click through and read the whole FanPost, and then come back here to vote on the one you like the best. This is our completely unscientific proof that Buffalo Bills fans know the best way to run an NFL team. Here they are:
