Kelsay: No playoffs a bitter pill

Posted by Chris Brown on February 27, 2013 – 8:29 pm

With Chris Kelsay announcing his retirement on Wednesday it brought an end to the defensive end’s perennial quest to help end Buffalo’s playoff drought. For 10 years and 147 career games Kelsay was the consummate team player. Having never made the playoffs however, is something that ate at him during his career.

“Yeah, obviously it is something that is frustrating,” Kelsay said. “Something that we did not achieve as a team. Obviously the goal was to make the playoffs and to contend for a championship. In my 10 years here we were unable to do that. It is a tough pill to swallow, but it is one that I am willing to swallow and move on.

“I think there is more to it in this business. I have learned a lot of lessons. I have met a lot of people and established a lot of relationships that will last a lifetime. So I will not really dwell on that. To move forward and like I said, start the next chapter of my life. I look forward to doing that.”
