The Buffalo All-Americans and the Buffalo Bills are two distinct organizations. The All Americans played in the early days of the NFL, between 1920 and 1923. The Buffalo All Americans franchise folded after the 1923 season. They were ressurected as the Buffalo Bisons, who played until 1929. It should be noted that the Bisons, because of financial reasons did not play football in 1928. The first Buffalo Bills team played in the All-America Conference from 1946 to 1949, although originally the Buffalo Bisons for the 1946 season. A contest to find a new name for the team resulted in the original Buffalo Bills. The team folded with the league after the 1949 season. The AFL Buffalo Bills were not started as a franchise until 1959, playing their first season in 1960.
The Bills finished 7-9 in 2006, which was head coach Dick Juaron's first season as head coach.
