  • Six players are on both the 25th Anniversary Team and the 50th Anniversary Team (one on offense and five on defense)
  • The 50th team looks pretty unbalanced with most glaring being the offensive line. Zero offensive tackles?
  • I know the deal with O.J., but he needs to be on the 50th team along with Thurman. O.J. was the best pure runner in Bills history (top five all-time), and the only Bills Hall of Famer not on the 50th Team.
  • Does James Lofton really need to be on the 50th team? I realize he is in the Hall of Fame, but he only started 31 games for Buffalo (less than two seasons worth).
  • Only one defensive end is on the 50th team... Does Shane Conlan need to be on this team? Nate Odomes? Henry Jones?

What do you guys think?
