16 Reasons To Root For The Buffalo Bills In 2015

Forget everything you know about the Bills.

Posted on

1. In 2014, Buffalo had one of the league's most dominant and exciting defenses.

Just ask Marcell.

2. The defensive line is what dreams are made of.

Quarterbacks don't have time to think, let alone make their reads and pass.

4. Typically, productive seasons are followed by a lot of turnover in personnel. This offseason, Buffalo's defense only lost one member of that elite unit.

Da'Norris Searcy will surely be missed in Buffalo. But here's a silver lining: he was out with an injury in week 15. In that game, his backup, Bacarri Rambo, picked off Aaron Rodgers twice. Here's the kicker: Rodgers only threw five interceptions all season.

Side note: Buffalo also lost Kiko Alonso. But for argument's sake, Kiko Alonso didn't play a single snap last year.


6. And this is his truck.

8. Because thankfully, Donald Trump doesn't own them.

Even though I refused to pay a ridiculous price for the Buffalo Bills, I would have produced a winner. Now that won’t happen.


9. And even more thankfully, neither does Bon Jovi.

The Bills are staying in Buffalo where they belong.

11. The additions they've made on offense this offseason are — let's be honest — just plain unfair.

If you're not intrigued by this revamped offense, you're not paying attention.

12. Buffalo's Athletes > Your Athletes

Goodwin won a silver medal in the long jump at the Pan Am games. At the combine, he clocked a 4.27 in the 40 yard dash, making him one of the league's fastest players.


13. Because they have Sammy Watkins, one of the league's most exciting young talents and — that's right — the best wide receiver in his draft class.

Sorry, Odell. Give Sammy a two-time Super Bowl MVP for a quarterback and Madden would have a different cover this year.

14. Revis Island is landlocked in his presence.

15. Because Bills fans are the most dedicated fans in the league. Despite experiencing 15 straight years of missing the playoffs, fans have shattered their franchise's 1992 season ticket sale record. / Via
