Well, in fairness, the Cowboys don't have a lot to complain about. They've done a ton of winning.
For Cleveland, it seems pretty simple. The players and coaches on that team wake up in Cleveland everyday. That's going to kill some spirits. Same with Kansas City.
San Diego? That's a tough one. Beautiful city. It's got to be the QB and coach.
