**Edit** I made it a poll with a listing of the Top numbers in team history. You may vote for more than one number.

Make your case for the greatest number in Bills history by listing the number and the players that wore it with distinction. The Top 5 will be the initial inductees into our Buffalo Bills Number Wall of Fame.

For instance: Number 12 seems like a no-brainer, being worn by Jim Kelly, James Harris, Joe Ferguson and Daryle Lamonica. (Al Dorow and Manch Wheeler do put a bit of stink on the rose, though).

 

Some may vote for a number just because one HOF player wore it, while others may make a case for a number that had a bevy of long-term serviceable wearers. It's your decision and we look forward to your nominations.

Letting the vetting process begin...

#22, #34, #80 and #83 are all pretty strong groups.  But I went with #12 with a bit of buyer's remorse given the competition.

 

If #32 was an option, I would have considered it if not for OJ's post football career.  He was transcendent as a player - other worldly.

Yep, 32 is by far the greatest.

For me, 12. Jimbo by himself makes it a great number, but Fergy was the QB when I was a kid as well.

You left out #32 who while turning into a degenerate murderer after retirement is still the most talented player to ever don a Bills uniform.


For a group though it has to be #34.  Thurman and Cookie were all time greats and Braxton was a load.

I thought about #32, but didn't want the conversation to devolve into the normal "should OJ be on the wall" talk that has derailed many a thread in the past.

You can vote for more than one number and the Juice can be recognized in the "other" column.

Right. Ask 1,000 football fans to identify a Bills player by number and I bet 32 wins going away.

“Millions” for Ko Simpson’s net worth

 

Does that do a 360 degree thing around the jersey? 

 

It’s hard for me to go anywhere other than #78, the only single player option. The #34 would be next, but I’ll stick with Bruce.

Wow, surprised I'm the only person to put in a vote for #20.

 

Cribbs, James and Jones make a heck of a trio, with Henry and Donte on the side.
