:lol: Travis Henry.  Can you imagine???

Obviously, Lou Saban is well deserving but probably not until after Mr. Wilson passes given the way things ended in Buffalo.

I could see Christie.  Maybe Henry Jones or Bennett.  The rest seem like reaches.

I could argue several on this list, but Reich was the QB for several of the greatest memories of my time as a Bills fan, so he gets my vote.

Reuben Brown was a perennial probowler.  If anyone deserves to go up there, it's him.

Voted for Van Miller because he is getting old and should experience it before its too late. But I easily could have voted for Moulds, Brown, Bennett

You should edit your poll to include the two most deserving Bills players not on the wall:

Butch Byrd: He is most remembered for a punt return in the 1965 American Football League Championship game against the San Diego Chargers.


Byrd holds the Bills' career records for interceptions (40), interception return yards (666) and interceptions returned for touchdowns (5).

He was a five-time American Football League All-Star, and was selected for the second team, All-Time All-AFL. Byrd is a 1980 inductee of the Boston University Hall of Fame, and in 2008 was selected to the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame.

http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Butch_Byrd

Cookie Gilchrist: While with Buffalo, Gilchrist played fullback and kicked, though he insisted he could have played both ways.

He was the first 1,000-yard American Football League rusher, with 1,096 yards in a 14-game schedule in 1962.

That year he set the all-time AFL record for touchdowns with 13, and he earned AFL MVP honors. Gilchrist rushed for a professional football record 243 yards and five touchdowns in a single game against the New York Jets in 1963.

Though he was with the Bills for only three years (1962–1964), he remains the team's fifth-leading rusher all-time, and led the league in scoring in each of his three years as a Bill. Gilchrist ran for 122 yards in the Bills' 1964 American Football League championship defeat of the San Diego Chargers, 20-7. His 4.5 yard/rush average is second as a Bill only to O.J. Simpson.

For these guys to be lumped into "other" invalidates the poll.

Van gets my vote this year, although others are deserving..

Moulds had a very good career in Buffalo, and Biscuit would also be a good choice..

With guys like mcgahee and Henry coming due for recognition I just don't see how those all time greats can leap frog some modern villains that had moderate success while burning bridges.

I think any player from this century needs to be omitted from the discussion. McGahee? Seriously? after the way he bad-mouthed the area? What I propose is putting the date Jan 3, 1993 on the Wall, that way you pay tribute to all those guys involved in perhaps the greatest moment in Bills history: Reich, Beebe, Kenny Davis, Christie, Jones...
