An Ode to the G.O.A.T.

There is still two games left in the season and I considered holding off and waiting on this tribute but with the way this season is going I doubt Mr. Gonzalez will be breaking too many more records. So I went ahead and threw this together.

What can be said that hasn't been said already? The guy is the best tight end to ever step foot on a football field. It is pretty much fact. So as a tribute to Anthony David "Tony" Gonzalez and his contribution to the Kansas City Cheifs, Atlanta Falcons, and football in general I have put this together. A mix of facts and pictures and tidbits of a living legend.

First I present to you a through biography written at jackbio.com, Tony Gonzalez Bio. It is fairly lengthy but for anybody that has ever wondered about some of his background here it is.

I will also throw out a few pages with stats and what not, you can pick the page you feel is most accurate or just skim through them all:

ESPN Tony Gonzalez Bio

FOX Sports Tony Gonzalez Bio

Sports Illustrated Tony Gonzalez Bio

NFL.com Tony Gonzalez Bio

And for good measure the Pro Football Reference stats Pro Football Reference Tony Gonzalez

Moving on I thought I could throw in some of good interviews with Tony. These are actually pretty abundant. I assume he is ramping up for the second part of his career, where in he can sit back and talk. He earned it so here is a sneak peak at some camera time with Tony:

This one is really cool NFL on FOX interview by his son

A tidbit from a really funny site FunnyorDie Ben Schwartz Interview

Lastly I thought I would leave you with a small sample of some good pictures of Tony throughout his career.

The list wouldn't be complete without some Cheifs photos:

Like I said this isn't the last you have seen of Tony, by far. Also this list of photos shouldn't be done either. I am sure the Falcons plan on making his last game a memorable one. My hat goes off to a man among boys, a first class act right up until the end, the one and only Tony Gonzalez.
