On this bonus weekend edition of Talking Buffalo, Patrick Moran poses the question if current (for the moment) Buffalo Bills safety Micah Hyde should ultimately land on the Bills Wall of Fame after his playing days are over, making a case for and against his inclusion.
Hyde, 33 hasn’t retired or given any public indication that he’s on the verge of doing so. Regardless of whether he does or not, his contract with the Bills is up and will soon become a free agent if he decides to continue playing. With the Bills in a pretty significant messy salary cap situation this offseason, the chances of Hyde returning while not impossible are extremely unlucky. Micah’s wife Amanda put out a beautiful statement on social media this week talking about how much Buffalo has mean to Micah and his family over his seven years with the team, giving a sense to many that it’s the end of the road for his time in Buffalo and quite possibly professional football all together. Got us thinking—should Micah someday be immortalized by the team with a spot on their Wall of Fame?
Patrick makes a case for that answer being yes, talking about Hyde being largely responsible as a core player for the team’s turnaround following the drought era as well as pointing a few guys already on the Bills Wall he feels Hyde’s more deserving of, some of Micah’s best individual accolades and special moments and the leadership role he was so very good at.
Also playing Devil’s advocate there’s a few reasons why this may never happen, including some former players perhaps more deserving that haven’t had their name called, the team’s unwillingness to put any one on the Wall at all in recent years and wondering if five good years from Hyde’s enough for this high of a honor.
Also included are several comments from fans. That and more today.
