Kelso would take Super Bowl trade

The four straight AFC titles by the Buffalo Bills in the early 90’s will probably never be repeated again. Former Bills safety Mark Kelso, who was on those teams, said he would not trade those four consecutive AFC titles for a single Super Bowl win. He would swap them for a bit more than that however. 

Appearing on the Schopp and the Bulldog show on WGR Sportsradio 550 late Friday afternoon, Kelso was asked for his thoughts and memories on that unprecendented run to four straight Super Bowls. He was also asked if he would trade that four-year ride for a single Super Bowl win.

“Certainly you want ot think about all those good times,” said Kelso. “The fact that you went there four times in row doesn’t diminish the success that you had, but I would’ve traded all four of those for a couple of Super Bowl victories I’ll tell you that. I wouldn’t trade them for one victory and ride off into the sunset and not be a very good team, but if you said we could trade four for two victories I would have to consider that.”

Kelso also stated that had Scott Norwood’s kick been good to win Super Bowl XXV he doubts the team would’ve won four straight AFC titles. He believes not finishing it off was what kept the hunger alive in those teams year after year. To hear the whole segment you can go to the station’s audio vault.
