Best Buffalo Bill Ever?! VOTE FOR TALLEY! by errantremark

So ESPN is doing this thing where you vote for each team’s “Franchise Player.”

This is another stupid exercise akin to their recent “Titletown USA” promotion.

Being that ESPN tends to ignore all things Buffalo when it comes to accuracy, I was expecting their list of options to include the obvious Bills from the Super Bowl years and anyone else in the Hall of Fame (Kelly, Bruuuuce, Thurmanator, Joe D, the Juice).

Well they did include all them. But then ESPN did something magical:

Ok, including Mike Stratton was one thing – he’s obscure enough that no one will know him and ESPN can say “Hey, we did our research.” But including Our Patron Saint Darryl Talley? OH MY GOD. That is a shout out to passionate fans everywhere. I hate to say it, but kudos, ESPN.
