R.I.P. to one of the greatest owners. I may have been harsh on him at times but without him Buffalo would not have had a football team. He will be missed.

Also, classy move by Eric Ebron.

You dont see that very often from a player not even in the league yet.

Its really sad news and the man will always be a legend in Buffalo, he gave so much to the team and the city. Its hard to not think what this means for the Bills though, it is going to be a very interesting and tense several months.

First off. I'm now on the Eric Ebron bandwagon. What a guy.

Second off, I can't say enough how much I respect Mr.Wilson. Without him I wouldn't have the team I love so much. The Bills are my life. 365 days out of the year they are on my mind. They're more than just a team playing a sport to me. I really hope our next owner feels the way I do about this team and keeps them in Buffalo. I would be a complete wreck if the Bills ever moved.

It's amazing to me that someone clear across the country could have done so much for me, so long ago. Mr. Wilson is directly responsible for literally hundreds of hours of enjoyment and was key in firing the passion I have for this team, this sport. Thank you, Sir!

RIP

This team rally and take the next step for Ralph and make some noise in this league in 2014. You can take that to the bank

It breaks my heart we couldn't win a Super Bowl for him.

RIP, you'll be missed Mr. Wilson.

We need to fill this place up every single week. Show we need this team in Buffalo and a nice tribute to Ralph.

Anyone see this:

The Bills left one light on at the stadium to honor the passing of owner Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. We’ll let the image speak for itself.




Seriously moving stuff.

This. Someone I never met, who started a team on the opposite side of the country, has had such an impact on my life. As long as I've been a football fan - around 30 years or so - I've been a Buffalo Bills fan. This team has been a huge part of my life, and as such, Mr. Wilson has been a huge part of my life. He will truly be missed. RIP Mr. Wilson!

As did I.



Also, thank you to all the fans of other teams coming in with your condolences. All of us in Bills Nation really appreciate it!

Couldn't agree more, we look, look mind you, like we finally have a winner built here. The Ralph needs to be packed every week to show whoever the new owner will be (hopefully Jim makes a full recovery and it's him) that this city NEEDS this team.
