Who would you guys put on it?

I would pick Ralph Wilson, O.J. Simpson, Jim Kelly and Bruce Smith.

Don't overrate Ralph.. He is important, but not in the classic football sense..

There are too many worthy players who were actually on the field that deserve credit.. If we are going non-players, Ill put Levy (or even Bill Polian) on there long before I consider Ralph..

Bruce and Kelly are locks in any top 4..

O.J. SHOULD be, but the stigma against him will leave him off of many lists..

But as far as I am concerned Bruce Smith, Jim Kelly, O.J. Simpson are stone cold locks on the list..

I would think realistically it is Reed or Thomas as the 4th, but Ill give it to Andre Reed..

But without Ralph Wilson there's no Buffalo Bills. I think when it comes to the Buffalo Bills as an organization, he's just as important, if not more important, than any player.

I like this list, I would probably pick Thurman Thomas over Reed though.

Hard not to put Ralph in there though despite my disliking of him.

You could say that about ANY owner of any small market team in any sport..

On the other side of the coin, he has made (in my opinion) some atrocious football decisions that have a large part of why we have not had any success in the last 15 years..

Art Modell in Cleveland? Wink

I understand your point, but Ralph also made some great decisions that helped us get to 4 straight Super Bowls.

Add the fact that he's been the sole owner for over 50 years, and kept the team in Buffalo, and I think he's been at least as important as any player.

This is my list as well. Levy was the biggest reason the Bills went to four superbowls.
