17. září 2012 v 9:44
The Buffalo Bills began playing competitively in the AFL in 1960 and joined the NFL in 1970 after the AFL-NFL merger. The only championships the franchise has won are two AFL titles in 1964 and 1965, and the team has yet to win a NFL title. The team once went to four consecutive Super Bowls, but lost all four. That makes the Buffalo Bills the only team to achieve such a feat. Over the past decade, the Bills have had very poor drafts, but their best draft picks led them to those four Super Bowls in the 1990s. The top three players to be drafted by the Buffalo Bills are Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith and Jim Kelly. No. 3: Thurman Thomas, RB, (1988 - 1999)Thurman Thomas was selected 40th overall in the 1988 NFL draft. The 2007 Hall of Famer and former Oklahoma State standout was a strong part of the Bills team that made it to four consecutive Super Bowls. He slipped out of the first round due to a knee injury he picked up, but he didn't allow it to hinder his progress going into the NFL. In his 12 seasons with the Bills, he rushed for 11, 938 yards on 2, 849 carries, scoring 65 rushing touchdowns. Through the air, he caught 456 passes for 4, 341 yards and 22 trips to the end zone. Thomas was named to the Pro Bowl five times, was named the NFL Offensive Player of the Year in 1992, and won the Associated Press NFL MVP award the year before. No. 2: Bruce Smith, DL, (1985 - 1999)Bruce Smith was the No. 1 overall draft pick in the 1985 NFL Draft. Smith is another member of the exceptional team that headed to the Super Bowl on four consecutive occasions, (1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993). The 2009 Hall of Famer is the all-time leader in sacking the QB, with 200 sacks, 171 of them coming in Buffalo. His best sack season was in 1990, with 19 sacks, two short of the NFL record .Watch fox sports online. He was a sack demon and one of the best defensive lineman to ever play the game. With Buffalo, he was selected to 11 Pro Bowls, nine times named first team All-Pro and the Defensive Player of the Year in 1990 and 1996. As a player for the Bills, he amassed 1, 078 tackles, 43 forced fumbles and two interceptions. No. 1: Jim Kelly, QB, (1986 - 1996)Jim Kelly is easily the greatest quarterback not to have won a super Bowl. He was drafted by the Bills in the 1983 draft, but went to the rival United states Football League because of the dismal attendance and extremely cold weather in Buffalo. The Bills retained his NFL rights and, when he returned in 1986, he carried the Bills to 5 AFC Championship games and 4 Super Bowl appearances during the period from 1989 to 1995 .Cheap NBA Jerseys. While he was starting quarterback for the Bills, the franchise made it to the playoffs eight of his 11 seasons. He ran the "K-Gun" no-huddle offense, which was very fast-paced. With the Bills, he had 101 wins and 59 losses, throwing for 237 touchdowns and 35, 467 passing yards and a career quarterback rating of 84. 4. He was named to four Pro Bowls and inducted in the Hall of Fame in 2002. The Bills are best remembered for not winning a super Bowl despite making it to four consecutive games .Cheap NFL Jerseys. But the main reason the franchise was in such a position at all is because of Jim Kelly. Jim Kelly is the best player drafted by the Buffalo Bills.
