Keith Ellison

Damn I hated Keith Ellison lol. He got so much playing time thanks to injuries. I remember one year he was considered a strength...that’s when I knew the season was toast.

Torell Troup

 

The irony of passing on Rob Gronkowski because of his history of back problems for a less talented player who couldn't stay on the field because of a bad back is almost too much to take.  I'm still not over it.

Not a player but the 1994 version of the Bills throwback jerseys were atrocious.

The guy we picked instead of Russel Wilson...He could run really fast but couldn't catch a ball if hi s life depended on it. I don't even remember his name.

 

This is another stinger.  If memory serves, when the Bills played the Seahawks that year, Wilson broke an NFL rookie record by rushing for three TDs and throwing for another in a single half, and T.J. Graham dropped four passes, one in the end zone.

Man, there are so many good bad players on this list I don't know which one to choose as the best worst one.

 

I think mayhem maybins rap debacle really ended the debate in my head.

I'm sure many will disagree but :

Jp losman

Trent Edwards 

Aaron maybin

Cornell green

Ej manuel

Mike tolbert

Mike williams

Josh reed

The kicker who replaced Ryan Lindell when he got injured 

I'm sure I'll think of more

Aaron Maybin! Made worse that he was a 1st round pick.

QB for the 2-14 Bills in 1985

 

Ferragamo/Mathison:   263-577, 3331 yards, 9 TD's /  31 INT's. 165 Yards per Game,  52 QB Rating.  And we had the 17th ranked defense.

 

That Torrell Troup tho...

I wasted a lot of space on this forum defending Kelsay but he was an undeserving whipping boy for many fans.  As a 2nd round pick (and 6th DE taken in that draft) he turned into a very serviceable starter over a 10-year career.

He was a whipping boy, but guys like Kelsay also personified the drought Bills. Those teams were full of guys deemed “serviceable” by fans, yet none of them were good enough to help take a team to the next level. The drought era teams simply held on to dozens of serviceable players for too long imo. Fwiw, the Kelsay contract was awful management. It was the type of decision  that created that drought.

Don't agree about McKelvin.  He didn't live up to his draft status but still started the majority of the games he played in his career.

He was about an average corner over his career.

He was an average corner at the end of his career, when he finally figured out he was supposed to look for the ball in the air.

Add Walt Patulski to the list.

Seriously some decent options.  This list made me think Tolbert and Reggie Bush are two of the worst Bills ever.

 

Geepers Bush has negative rush yards as a Bill and Tolbert seemed like he was negative rush yards.

How can anyone know? Some were probably so bad they never played a game.

When you you get right down to it he was a top 10 pick, paid a lot of money, wasn't injured and produced literally nothing.

 

That is tough to beat.

Meh.  You don't expect to find a "star" with the 40th pick (and 6th DE) in a draft.  Kelsay performed right in line with what you hope for that level of pick.  The fans are just wrong on this one.

Byrd and Levitre were good 2nd rounders in the same draft (?).  But, ya, typically we don't do well in the 2nd round.

I don't think Ellison was serviceable.  Me and my buddy used to say the following about Ellison.........

 

1.  We don't have anyone good enough to start at LB

2.  Ellison is not good enough to start, but, Ellison started

3.  Ellison is a "tweener" that can't play in this league.  He got pushed around and couldn't tackle.  TOO small!

4.  As long as Ellison was starting we weren't good at LB and clearly had NO depth at LB

5.  Ellison started for 2 or 3 season and he was not good enough to start

6.  Shortly after we didn't have Ellison on the roster.........Maybin was on our team in the same role, but, worse!

He wasn't very good but he is not in the conversation for the worst player to wear a Bills jersey in the 58 year history of the franchise.

Chris Watson the punt catcher and the worst cover corner we've ever had.

I kinda had Justin Rogers pencilled in there tbh.

To be worst I feel high expectations needed to be had.  Todd Collins was god awful and suppose replacement for Kelly.  Troup because only the 2000's Bill's could pass on drafting local boy Rob Gronkoski.

He played like a rookie 7th rd pick.  When late rd picks play as rookies they are what they are IMO.

no one tops Maybin but for guys who actually made it onto the field I thought Robert "Hands of Stone" Royal deserves dishonourable mention
