It’s been a year full of highs and lows for the Buffalo Bills, but even moreso for the greatest quarterback in franchise history, Jim Kelly. Both the Bills community and Kelly had reason to celebrate Thursday, when the legendary signal-caller announced he is cancer-free.

“My dad was a construction worker and my mom worked in a factory and I was just a little kid that never combed his hair that loved to play football and play sports.”

Andre Reed never dreamed as a kid that he would make it to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. An Allentown, Pa. native who played his college football at Kutztown University in Division II, Reed wasn’t supposed to become one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history. But he always strived to make the most of his opportunities.

Anniversaries are an occasion for reflection, an opportunity to take a look back at something and see how much you’ve grown or how far you’ve fallen. For the Buffalo Bills, the 20th anniversary of their last Super Bowl appearance seems to be a cause to reflect on the two decades of futility since that have seen only five winning seasons.

That said, when comparing the current team to the team that won its fourth consecutive AFC championship 20 years ago, it seems the current incarnation of the Bills might not be as far off from success as many believe.

Let’s look at the basic facts first. The 1993 Buffalo Bills finished the regular season 12-4. They beat the Los Angeles Raiders in the divisional playoff round and the Kansas City Chiefs in the conference championship game before falling 30-13 to the Dallas Cowboys in the Super Bowl (which I was at, for the record, making it even more heart-breaking).
