According to the interview that just ran on SNF pre-game.

Go Falcons? Super Bowl or bust?

He also said this season is the most fun he's ever had.

For a while I didn't care. But I want Atlanta to go far. Tony is the best of all time. He deserves a couple playoff wins. Plus I'm a fan of Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Sean Weatherspoon, and William Moore.

Someone's got to win the Super Bowl other than the Chiefs. Might as well be Atlanta/Gonzo imo.

You're not required to at all. Please understand though that the player in question was and is an all time Chiefs great, is a sure HOFer, now plays on one of the best teams in the league and has yet to win a playoff game in his career. The combination of these things could be seen by some as a newsworthy topic on a Chiefs board... although I admit it's no 74 pages about a woman not tipping.

The fuck off he is.

He's good for 20-some odd yards a game on average, and 0 big plays.

He's dropped 5 passes and 3 have been picked.

He's a dumpster fire of a WR. The only reason he has a decent catch total is because Casshole loves to pump the ball to him in garbage time.

I have been right about the little worthless dreadlocked hobbit this WHOLE TIME and massive blowjobs are due.

The fact he played about 30 snaps last week as our #2 was EMBARRASSING.

Yes because people are beginning to realize that a TE should only block and cant be used as a passing attack weapon...

And the league is going to running versus passing

And QB's are passing less

Jason Witten has better stats at this point in his career than Tony did and he's hardly been considered even a top 3 TE any season he's played. Someone will break 1000..

I am not arguing against longevity being a huge factor in Tony G's case. (or in ANY case where career numbers are broken)

Absolutley.....Agree

I'm just saying that I can see someone doing it,

Shannon sharp was two good seasons away from doing it...(he was in CRAZY shape!)

Witten is on pace...Antonio gates will come close (probably wont do it)

But yah, I think SOMEONE will....

Its more likely to have a TE break 1000 receptions than say a RB break 4400 rushing attempts again...or even 3800....(its so much more of a passing league now)

The fact he played about 30 snaps last week as our #2 was EMBARRASSING.

He IS a terrible, terrible WR... he has no business playing that position, way too small, gets lost in a crowd, cant take a mugging from a safety or corner, he's just waaay to easy to cover downfield.

The way they're using him is criminal, he can be ok with quick hits and screens in space near the LOS, but sending him downfield is as bad as it gets, he doesnt stand a chance.

Either dumboll is even dumber than we thought, or pioli, despite his protests, manipulates roster decisions as much as we thought... Breaston is on the bench, but dex gets the call for the #2-3 spots?

It defies explanation.

He's 32 and needs about 400. He's hurt too much. I overlooked Whitten. At 30, and with 747 catches, he will do it barring injury.

Again, longevity. Whitten has only missed 2 games.

I agree it has a lot to do with longevity...

But others will do it after Witten as well.

1) Longevity (medicine / sports therapy) is improving

2) Passing is more common, and since the NFL keeps nerfing defenses I expect this trend to continue

3)the TE will only become more valuable in the passing game, as we have already seen.


So it will come down to longevity (of course) but if the other two factors (TE's being used as a weapon more, and passing being more and more common) then Tony G wouldve never had 1000 no matter how long he played....So where there was 0 tony G's before, there will be a witten, and sharpes/gates types who will come close and other who will break the record....MORE than just because of longevity..(but more than just the 1 Tony G)

But yes of course longevity is a factor (as everyone can easily see)

Well thats the thing...(let us hope/pray)

The methods that they have for dealing with ACL injuries are so much better now that:

1) players are coming back faster

2) players are able to come back to a higher % of their abilities

3) players can play longer after their injuries

So this is where the longevity part of the equation I think will become at least a little a bit more common.
