I grew up in northwest Pennsyvania surrounded primarily by Steelers and Browns fans, with a few Bills fans sprinkled in. Luckily, when I was in gradeschool one of my friends used to invite me to his house on Sundays to watch Bills games. This was during the days of Jim Kelly, Andre Reed, Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith, Daryl Talley.... all the greats. The Bills may not have won a Super Bowl back then, but they sure dominated the AFC. Regardless, I turned into a die hard Bills fan.
I currently live in Fort Worth, TX. Since there aren't many Bills fans out here for me to converse with, I've turned to bleacher report as an outlet for discussing the team I love.
Actually, it was another writer that changed it. I Initially left your title as is. My thinking was you wanted to say how the selection will impact or influence the Bills. (an action/verb) The writer changed it to mean the result (effect-noun) of the selection. IMO, an argument can be made that it can mean either.
The bottom line: It's your article.
Please check editor's feedback. Thanks.
Brendan: Sorry about the title mix-up. Same question with this title: Buffalo Bills: The Effects of Drafting CB Stephon Gilmore
Brendan: Hi, can you clarify whether you wanted your article to read "Bills' Affects (Impact) of Drafting Stephon Gilmore" or "Bills' Effects (Result) of Drafting Stephon Gilmore." Your Title can be read either way, but it is your article and, more importantly, your intent that counts.
