FORMER BUFFALO BILLS QUARTERBACK JIM KELLY HAS NEVER WATCHED THE GAME FILM FROM ANY OF HIS FOUR SUPER BOWL APPEARANCES, HE TELLS "CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH CHARLES OSGOOD"
KELLY TELLS SUSAN SPENCER: “IF I WENT BACK, I WOULD HAVE TO REPEAT THAT ALL OVER MY MIND... I’M AT EASE NOW”
Former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly led the team to the Super Bowl four consecutive times – a record that will be hard to match for future generations. The Bills, however, lost all four games. Since then, Kelly has never watched highlights of any of those games, he tells CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH CHARLES OSGOOD in an interview to be broadcast Sunday, Feb. 3 (9:00 AM) on the CBS Television Network.
“Never have seen a game film in any of the Super Bowls, never watched one,” Kelly tells Susan Spencer. “If I went back, I would have to repeat that all over in my mind… I’m at ease now. I’m at a peace of mind, peace in my heart now knowing what we accomplished, even though we didn’t win them. I feel all right with that.”
Kelly talks with Spencer for a report on the psychology of winning in sports, in awards and in other areas of life. Spencer also interviews experts on the subject of winning – and losing.
Despite the losses, Kelly knows a lot about winning as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. His #12 football jersey has been retired by the Buffalo Bills, where he played for 11 years and won more than 100 games.
“There’s always going to be a major emphasis on winning, because that’s just the way society is,” Kelly says. “That’s just the way our culture is. That you want to be #1 at the end… If you’re #2, at times, there’s no doubt #2 is looked upon as mediocre, as a person that didn’t achieve it, sometimes as losers.”
Spencer’s report on the psychology of winning will be broadcast Sunday, Feb. 3 on CBS SUNDAY MORNING (9:00 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Rand Morrison is the executive producer.
