    Re: Tony Gonzalez to Atlanta

    No way would I give up a 2nd rounder for him. Well done by KC.

    Re: Tony Gonzalez to Atlanta

    Not really thrilled about trading him away. I think he's worth the 2nd round pick though. Probably should have gotten more for him. Talking about an All-Pro with multiple receiving records for tight ends who is still probably the best tight end in the league.

    Re: Tony Gonzalez to Atlanta

    I'll admit I don't watch the NFL at all cuz its a joke but how do you give up a Hall of Famer and only get a 2nd round pick in return. I realize that Tony Gonzalez is way past his prime but he has to be worth more than some unknown player that has not or may not ever step on a NFL field.

    Re: Tony Gonzalez to Atlanta

    Wow...I did not expect this to happen; pretty psyched it did though! Heh, our draft is probably going to be all defense with an OL thrown in at some point for depth...

    care to elaborate on why you think the NFL is a joke?

    Re: Tony Gonzalez to Atlanta

    horrible move by the chiefs! kellen winslow who is not near the TE TG is went for something like a 2nd and 5th and all we get is a damn 2nd for next year none the less!? might as well just forfeit the whole 2009 season because its looking like another 2 win season!

    Re: Tony Gonzalez to Atlanta

    I would have liked a little more then a 2nd rounder for next years draft. I mean with their O the Falcons have a chance to be pretty good, thus getting a high 2nd round draft pick. I only hope that Pioli freed up some room for Bolden.

    Winslow still has the majority of his career ahead of him. TG has what, two years left? A 2nd is good value.
