A while back I did some concepts for defunct NFL teams. I didn't do a team called the Buffalo All-Americans because they didn't have an authentic logo anywhere online, at least what i could find. The two images featured on the Sports encyclopedia are wrong. (http://sportsecyclopedia.com/nfl/buf20/allamericanbisons.html)

Please tell me what you think of them. First goes off the name All-Americans, second goes off Buffalo.
Edited to add: I will add the uniform(s) later.
