    Mr. Wilson was truly a visionary owner, with dreams of a Super Bowl, and all the NFL, including the Cardinals, will miss him. God Bless, and my thoughts and prayers are with the Wilson family.

    Sad times in Buffaloland. Between losing Wilson, Buffalo shipyards, Polaroid, Jim Kelly’s health, and their 6-months of winter — harsh news.
