The Buffalo Bills have had some great years since the inaugural season in 1960, even though the team has never won a Super Bowl title.

It is another beautiful Monday to be a Buffalo Bills fans. If only the season began yesterday.

While we wait for the 2018 season to get underway, or even training camp for that matter, we are left to ponder plenty of other topics surrounding the team.

One topic on my mind recently had to do with the best seasons in Bills history. Specifically, coming up with a somewhat definitive list of the 10 best seasons in franchise history.

There are those out there who view anything but a Super Bowl championship to be a bust of a season, but Bills fans likely know better. Even with the four straight Super Bowl heartbreaks, the team gave fans memories to last a lifetime.

The list I came up with, which will be shared here shortly, goes through what I saw as the 10 best seasons. These include seasons that ended with AFL and AFC championships, including an AFL crown one year before the AFL and NFL decided to meet up for a super game of sorts.

Be sure to check the list out as part of today’s Morning Charge.
