Jim Kelly never has watched any of the Bills' four Super Bowl losses

By Mark Gaughan

Buffalo Bills Hall-of-Fame quarterback Jim Kelly will appear on the television show "CBS Sunday Morning" on Super Bowl Sunday for a report on the psychology of winning in sports.

"Never have seen a game film in any of the Super Bowls, never watched one," Kelly tells CBS reporter 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."

Spencer also interviews experts on the subject of winning -– and losing.

Kelly on the subject: "There’s always going to be a major emphasis on winning, because that's just the way society is. That's just the way our culture is. That you want to be No. 1 at the end. ... If you're No. 2, at times, there's no doubt No. 2 is looked upon as mediocre, as a person that didn't achieve it, sometimes as losers."
