Remember the talk of Gates eventually becoming the greatest tight end ever? And taking down all of Tony Gonzalez's records with him?

Ha ha ha hahahaha

Tony Gonzalez is...STILL IN HIS PRIME while Antonio Gates is totally washed up.

Tony G could play another 5 years.

BUT WE GOT A 2ND ROUND PICK OUT OF HIM!

What a FAIL of a trade.

Let's see, I remember these guys' saying it:
Shockey
Gates
Kellen Winslow. (I remember TG commenting on him saying he needed to learn to block)

Who else was there?
All 3 of those have never been renowned blockers...a complete TE like TG.

It's amazing, the guy just keeps plugging along. The TD celebration of choice for most players' now is the goal post dunk.
Hopefully TG comes back as a TE coach?
