Tony Gonzalez appreciation thread
 
It's more than likely the end of the road for arguable the best TE ever.

103 dunks! Great career. Great guy.

He has the strongest hands of any player in the league, he can catch very tough balls while getting his arms whacked all the time.

Bob Sanders Dreadlock 01-21-2013 10:14 AM

Can't believe the stats he managed on some bad KC teams

Abaddon 01-21-2013 10:43 AM

The thing I appreciated most was him him leaving the AFC West. Dude used to humiliate us.

NIN1984 01-21-2013 10:54 AM

He's the best. It was a nightmare playing him, even when the Raiders were good a long, long time ago. Gonzo was always a player to fear.

YAYareaRB 01-21-2013 11:01 AM

I appreciate him

Leon Sandcastle 01-21-2013 11:13 AM

Best TE of all times.

BmoreBlackByrdz 01-21-2013 11:25 AM

greatest TE of all time. What's crazy is that he could definitely play a few more years.

vidae 01-21-2013 11:30 AM

I would have loved to see him run out on that field during a SB, but he still had a hell of a career. Arguably the best Chief ever, and easily the best TE ever. Had a blast watching him play.

JRTPlaya21 01-21-2013 12:43 PM

I will miss him a lot more then I'm gonna miss Ray. Tony has always been a class act and I'm very blessed to have been able to watch the greatest TE of all time.

bigbluedefense 01-21-2013 12:46 PM

I think he's probably the best TE to ever play the game. I know Mackey was widely known as the guy but I think Gonzo has surpassed him. He's definitely surpassed Kellen Winslow Sr.

tjsunstein 01-21-2013 01:39 PM

I really wanted to see him get a ring but I couldn't find it in myself to root for the Falcons as much as I respected Tony. He had a hell of a game to end his career and I'm glad that he got a playoff victory to his name. He could play 2 or 3 more years, too...

Smooth Criminal 01-21-2013 01:52 PM

I hope he gets another year. I'm not ready for him to be out of the league yet.

Ness 01-21-2013 01:58 PM

It was hard to watch him in the post game presser. He was about to breakdown by the sound of his voice. Great career. Unfortunately he was just in our way.

bigbluedefense 01-21-2013 02:06 PM

Such a class act too. Tony Gonzalez is the type of player you want your kids to look up to.

I really wish he won a ring.

absolutely this.

and lost in all his great recieving stats are his blocking skills. dude was on the field blocking for some REALLY big rushing years by Priest and LJ. without a doubt in my mind, THE.BEST.TE.EVER.

T-RICH49 01-21-2013 06:51 PM

I don't know if it'll happen but would love to see him sign a 1 day deal and retire a Chief.

fenikz 01-21-2013 07:02 PM

i assume he will

vidae 01-21-2013 08:17 PM

I'd love it, but he has spoken highly of this Falcons team and their players/coaches/etc.. and they got a lot closer to a ring than the Chiefs ever did.

I would love it though.

Who said anything about it being malicious? It was just an unnecessary thing to say.

Oh alright. We'll leave it to you to determine civilized conduct around these parts.

Careful, Ness. Caddy-police is on the prowl.

No post is safe.
