Former Bills great Cookie Gilchrist passes away

Sad news for Bills fans today, with Aaron Wilson of National Football Post saying that the outspoken Bills back had died from cancer.

He was 75.

I always wished that the Bills and Cookie had patched things up.  He was such an important figure in our teams’ history.  Quick anecdote:  Cookie lobbied to play offense, defense, and special teams so he could collect three checks (his plan never worked out).  He was brutally physical and productive, but was shipped off by coach Lou Saban to Denver after the two butted heads for the last time.
