Who was our best PR ever?

Recommended Posts

I can only think of Roscoe Parrish and Leodis McKelvin here. Andre Roberts may be considered today's best PR, but I don't think he's anywhere near as good as Roscoe and Leodis were. Some of those moves Parrish used to make were just insane! Am I leaving anyone out? I've been a Bills fan since day 1 and I don't recall anyone from the first 40 years (1960 - 2000) that was as exciting as these 2 guys.

During those years, any return was exciting because it was either McGee on KO's, or Roscoe on punts.

 

One of my favorites was when McGee returned one in the third quarter against the Cowboys on MNF.

In terms of being a good rep for the overall look of the team, Coach Levy.  I am sure if you ask Russ Brandon this question, he'll say "Russ Brandon".

I missed it live. Went to the bathroom thinking that I'd miss nothing.

 

Not my best thought process 😂

Steve Tasker averaged 10.5 yds/PR for his career.  Plus he averaged 20.7 on KR, plus 4 pro bowls as a ST and a Pro Bowl MVP.

The one thing I remember is that Toyota was running a promotion where they would randomly select a fan and if the Bills returned a kickoff for a touchdown in the third quarter, that fan would win a new car. And when McGee returned that one, that fan won the car.

Andre Roberts catches everything and never fumbles.  Meanwhile, Leodis McKelvin single handedly lost us games because of him fumbling kicks.  No thank you.

Hot take: If Roscoe came along 10 years later he would have had a really nice career. The game has evolved so much since 2005. There is a place in these spread offenses for his skill set regardless of size.
