BearNorth Posted January 31 Share Posted January 31 After reading this thread, I took a few minutes. Pretty much everyone agrees that the offensive line has been in a word "offensive" In the entire history of the franchise [I was 12 yrs old living in Buffalo in 1960], here are the significant honors earned by Buffalo O-Lineman Hall of Fame Billy Shaw Guard 1961-1969 Joe DeLamielleure Guard 1973-1979, 1985 All Pro Billy Shaw 5X 1962, 63, 64, 65, 66 Joe DeLamielleure 3X 1975, 76, 77 Stew Barber 2X 1963-1964 Kent Hull 2X 1990,91 Reggie McKenzie 1X 1973 [Thanks to OJ] Multiple Pro Bowls Billy Shaw 8X Ruben Brown 8X Stew Barber 5X Joe DeLamielleure 5X Kent Hull 3X House Ballard 2X Jason Peters 2X Jim Ritcher 2X So out of 310 player years [5 players 62 years], we have had 2 Hall of Famers, 13 All-Pro's, and 35 years of players who went to multiple pro-bowls. I didn't count single pro-bowls, cause it's a popularity contest for the most part. That's an indictment of our scouting department and O-line coaching over almost the entire history of the franchise. The screwup with Peters is one of the most egregious front office mistakes along with Patulski and Cousineau. This is not just coaching, this is scouting and drafting effectively 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
