When did Don Beebe become a Bills legend???

Recommended Posts

He has three plays that are in highlight reels. Only one of which is a completed pass. Yes he chased down Lett but does that make him a legend? He bounced his head off the ground in what should have been ruled an interception not an incomplete pass. And yes he caught a TD in the comeback game.  

That is not a legendary career. Not even close.

Did they retire his number or is his name on the wall of fame? No?  He's not a legend.  Just a role player.

It's like the legend of Kiko Alonso

 

Or ko Simpson

 

Or loch Ness monster

Ask the dude who knows more than Chris Brown. Im sure hed be happy to tell ya!!

 

Just a guy people recall fondly from the SB era. Never screwed anything up, and is the poster child for hustle while chasing down Lett. Legend is a bit much, but Topps has a series they call HOMETOWN HEROES that features the guys who were more role players than the superstars - which Bebee has been in and that, Id say, fits him to a T.

My friend -- a Giants fan -- thinks David Tyree is a legend. It's in the eye of the beholder, I guess.

C'mon now... Beebe is more than a "role player". 

 

"Legend" may be too great of a term, but Beebe was a big part of the offense.  White lightning!

The legend of David Tyree certainly is alive and well

 

While he was no where close to a legendary player he is a legend because of that catch and SB victory

He had several iconic moments. (Chasing down Leon Lett, bouncing off his head vs CLE, TD in comeback game) But he's not a legendary player.

Is 2 catches a game and like 2 tds a year really a big part of an offense that had 4(?) hall of famers including 2 at his position? 

 

If he wasn’t a role player, who was?!?

leg·end·ar·y  remarkable enough to be famous; very well known.

 

Outside of buffalo and the lett family, I’d venture not terribly well known.

 

that play was likely legendary even if he’s not though

Big difference between making a play that lead to a Super Bowl win against an undefeated team and chasing a guy down to keep the margin of loss at 35.

Who ever said he is a legend?

 

I distinctly remember you saying so, March 6th 2013 when we were roller skating together.

When he knocked the ball out of Lett’s hand in what had become a meaningless game is enough for me.

Not mad. Just don't like lazy reporting and elevating players that barely register as good to legendary status. It diminishes the truly great ones.

the night he ran down leon lett after everyone else gave up.

 

It didn’t make him a legend, but it gives him a place in my heart forever.  I love a guy who never quits.

By definition, Tyree is a legend. We all know his name, and instantly think of that miraculous catch in the Super Bowl. 

 

Well known...that's "legend".

 

So to call Beebe a Bills legend isn't really all that crazy really. We all know who he is, and of course he's sononomous with the Lett play.

Who reported he is a legend?  I don't see where you are getting this from.  Does he have a reporter that's a friend out in Portland?

Beebe was on WGR this afternoon. May have been Tasker or Brownie.

 

The Lett play came up. I'm sure Beebe was exaggerating a bit, but he said it's something people bring up every day and he still receives fan mail regarding that play. Mostly Bills fans, I'm sure, if not all.
