in recognition of Wrestlemania weekendThis Sunday a big event is happening and
it doesn’t have anything to do with football. Wrestlemania 35 is Sunday and it’s
the WWE’s largest and grandest spectacle of the year. At this point, you have
either turned your nose up because wrestling is fake and it’s below you, or you
already knew it was happening and are pumped. How does this relate to the
Buffalo Bills, you jabroni? As a wrestling fan who has attended the past two
Wrestlemania events, it got me thinking about who are the faces and heels for
our beloved Bills.For the uninitiated, a face in wrestling is considered a good
guy, while heels are the bad guys. Without further ado, here are the top faces
and heels from the Buffalo Bills’ storied history. The FacesThe late ‘80s, early
‘90s BillsThis group of players and coaches was grouped together simply because
the entire section would have been from this time period. The late 1980s and
early to mid-1990s were unquestionably the glory years for this franchise. From
the names everyone knows (Levy, Kelly, Thomas, Reed, Smith, Talley, Bennett,
Tasker, Lofton, Reich, Beebe—whose successful pursuit of Leon Lett in an
otherwise forgettable Super Bowl XXVII kept the Bills from suffering the big
game’s worst-ever defeat) to the more unsung Vosean Joseph NFL Draft , yet no-less important cogs (Kenny Davis, Shane Conlan, Jeff Wright, Keith McKeller, Carlton Bailey—who preserved the Bills’ Super Bowl
streak with his Pick-6 against the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game),
these years brought greatness to Western New York. Thanks to the joy brought to
the fan base from these teams and the fact that more than two decades later they
are, arguably, even more popular with the fans than they were in their heyday,
is the true definition of being a face. Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Ralph Wilson is the
Vince McMahon for Buffalo. Without Wilson’s commitment to Buffalo, the Bills—and
to an extent football as we know it today—wouldn’t exist today (go look what he
did for the Raiders, which saved the upstart AFL). Just like McMahon, there were
times the fans and media would treat Wilson as a heel, discussing his
unwillingness to spend money, but overall there is no denying Wilson was a hero
to Buffalonians and Bills fans around the world. Terry and Kim PegulaAfter Mr.
Wilson passed away, there was a very real fear among Bills fans that someone
would swoop in, buy the Bills and then move them to a larger, more profitable
market. Enter the Pegulas. The owners of Buffalo’s other professional sports
franchise, the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, who won the bidding for the team. The
Pegulas’ commitment to Buffalo is evident (see One Buffalo) and the proverbial
monkey on the back of the franchise was quickly removed when the Bills finally
made the playoffs after the 2017 season. With a seemingly solid structure in
place with the Pegulas Vosean Joseph NFL Jersey , Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane, and a young quarterback with loads of potential, Terry and Kim seem poised for a long run as
the top Faces of the Bills. The HeelsJon Bon JoviIt may be hard to remember now,
but there was a real loathing of the music star who gave love a bad name during
the bidding process for the Bills. There was a petition being circled by 12th
Man Thunder to boycott Bon Jovi’s music and that stemmed from the belief that
Bon Jovi had no interest in keeping the Bills in Western New York. As we all
know, Bills fans are an extremely passionate fan base and even the possibility
of someone wanting to move the team results in serious venom, the true trait of
a Heel. Donte WhitnerOh where to start with the former first-round pick? There
was plenty of animosity toward the former Ohio State Buckeye because of his lack
of high-impact plays. That alone wouldn’t have put him on this list. His tweets,
however, did. Back in the summer of 2014, Whitner said that “Wonder how you
Bills fans feel when the team is moved? LOL,” and “Can you say Toronto
Bills?!?!?1?!”Much like Bon Jovi’s spot on this list,any mention of moving the
Bills is NEVER a good idea. Bills fans can stomach a lot—just look at the
support during the drought, but even the notion of not having the Bills to cheer
for is something they can’t stomach. Those social media comments—especially
considering he directly taunted Bills fans—coupled with his lack of production
cemented Whitner’s status as a Heel for the Bills. Billy Joe HobertYou may be
thinking: “Who?” This is a more personal Heel, but the reasoning is sound. For
those who do remember his brief tenure with the Bills, Hobert was brought in as
a free agent in 1997 following Jim Kelly’s retirement. His time with the Bills
was over before the 1997 season even ended after Hobert admitted to the media he
wasn’t prepared to play. Sucking or having a bad game is one thing. It happens
in sports. Bills fans have grown accustomed to that type of play from the
quarterback position. Admitting you weren’t prepared mentally, however, is
unacceptable anywhere, particularly in a blue-collar city like Buffalo. Because
of that unforgivable admission, Hobert will always be one of my most hated Bills
players. Who else deserves a spot on our list? Let us know in the
comments.Buffalo Bills rookies had ups and downs against Los Angeles Chargers
The Buffalo Bills sank to 0-2 on Sunday courtesy of Phillip Rivers and the Los
Angeles Chargers. Josh Allen’s first NFL start was a mixed bag while Tremaine
Edmunds struggled with indecision on several big plays by the offense. More
about the performance of the Bills’ entire 2018 rookie class below.QB Josh
AllenThe first-rounder played like a rookie against the Chargers, while mixing
in a fair amount of “wow” throws to keep it interesting. Allen was a bit gun-shy
in the first half and was careful not to take many risks with the football,
especially when the down and distance wasn’t favorable. Brian Daboll mixed in
some quick Vosean Joseph Jersey Draft , short throws to the running back to get the rookie up to speed early. Unfortunately, the lack of a running game meant that Allen
was put in some difficult situations early and he struggled on third downs. The
gloves came off, however, when the team was down 28-3. Allen uncorked an
unbelievable throw to Charles Clay that took an equally unbelievable play by
Derwin James to break up. Then Allen threw an absolute bomb to Zay Jones down
the sideline. Allen was much more aggressive in the second half, including two
ill-advised throws that resulted in interceptions. Overall, an up-and-down day
for the 7th overall pick.LB Tremaine EdmundsEdmunds clearly struggles with any
type of misdirection in the backfield and the Chargers took full advantage on
Sunday. On a 16-yard reverse to Austin Ekler early in the second quarter and on
the Chargers third touchdown of the day, the offense’s use of some sort of fake
in the backfield got Edmunds to pause just enough to break off a big play. It’s
not that the rookie lacks speed, it’s that his speed can’t make up for his
mental mistakes. After the Phillip Gaines injury, Buffalo was forced to play
much more base defense, and it left Edmunds severely exposed when lined up in
coverage against wide receivers in the slot. Like Allen, Edmunds needs to
continue taking his lumps while learning on the job.DT Harrison PhillipsA
largely quiet day again for the third-rounder as he was only on field for 19
snaps, or 33% of the overall defensive plays. With only 3 total tackles and 1
solo tackle, Phillips really could use a break-out game.CB Taron JohnsonJohnson
was inactive for the day as he continues to rehab his shoulder injury suffered
against the Baltimore Ravens. In addition to Johnson, fellow rookies G Wyatt
Teller, G Ike Boettger and WR Ray-Ray McCloud were all inactive. S Siran
NealNeal saw only three snaps on defense and only recorded a single tackle. WR
Robert FosterFoster was on the field for about 50% of the offensive snaps and
had a nifty toss-sweep run late in the first quarter that gained about 12 yards.
Then he wasn’t targeted again until the final drive of the game on a 33-yard
completion from Allen. Foster should get more opportunities as the season goes
on.P Corey BojorquezIn his home debut, Bojorquez punted five times for an
average distance of 44.6 yards, with a long of 54. His best punt came in the
middle of the second quarter, being able to punt from his own 20-yard line to
the opposite 20-yard line while leaving plenty of height for the coverage team
to wrap up the returner immediately.
