Tony Gonzalez says he’d retire after winning a Super Bowl

Tony Gonzalez

John Elway did it.  Jerome Bettis did it.  Brett Favre wanted to do it.

Tony Gonzalez hopes to do it, too.

In a Friday sit-down with ProFootballTalk Live, the Falcons tight end and future Hall of Famer didn’t hesitate when the question came up of whether he’d retire after a Super Bowl win.

Put simply, Tony will be adding an “e” after the first three letters of his last name.

“I think I’m gone,” he said.  “I am gone.  In the sunset, [drinking] Pina Coladas and having a good time.”

    So does that mean that he won’t retire until he does? If so, we can expect to see him play until he is about 186 yrs old.

    Tony G has never played on a team to win a playoff game, let alone a super bowl.

    Pretty sure you have to win ONE playoff game if you are planning on setting your sights that high…

    Tony G has been on some elite teams. Two #1 seeds (KC 1997 and Atl 2010) and one #2 seed (KC 2003). None of those teams won a playoff game. None of his other playoff teams ever won a playoff game either. It is not like TG has played for some crappy teams. Tough to win a Super Bowl when your teams can’t even win a playoff game.

    True, the poor bastard has had such a rough life.

    As a Chiefs fan I would like to see him get a ring. He played well on some bad teams.

    Is he being traded to Pittsburgh? Sweet!

    Matt Ryan will be saying the same thing for years to come.

    His best chance of winning a superbowl is in Philly and they have a better upcoming tight end already.

    Maybe a better goal would be to retire after winning a playoff game.

    Guess who’s never gonna retire? That guy !

    There is nothing simple about this lame muddled joke or crappy play on words.
