Nice!

 

they kind of let it slip during Bruce's retirement, that Thurman's would be coming soon. So I'm not surprised. But it's still long overdue!

Is Bills WoF = jersey retirement?  If not, what numbers have been retired to date?

Only #12 has been retired

 

But no one has worn 34 and 78 since Bruce and Thurman retired

Hopefully they don't go overboard like the Sabres did, and with a blink of an eye, you had 7 numbers retired, when in reality there should be two or three(definitely 11 & 39...and maybe 2 because of the circumstances).

I’m not going to look this up, but doesn’t this typically spell doom for us in those games; When we honor major players being retired.

You brought this up before and it's not true.

32 was never formally retired, but I don't think anyone has worn it since The Juice.

Ugh, I mean I get it Thurman is all time great and this probably should've happened earlier but I get nervous we just keep relieving the past as much as possible just because we can. I really hope they are careful that this is it for a bit with 12, 34, and 78. It takes away from those guys if we start doing this regularly.
