KANSAS CITY, Mo. There may never be another tight end as good as No. 88 in Chiefs' red. And this Sunday, Tony Gonzalez will revisit the place Arrowhead Stadium where his illustrious career started, this time wearing No. 88 in the red and black of the Atlanta Falcons. It will be the first time Tony G has returned to Arrowhead since requesting a trade after the 2008 season, and it seems certain it will be the last. Gonzalez said he is 99 percent sure this will be his final season in the NFL. "It's going to be a little weird being in a different locker room and coming out of that tunnel when we first come in," Gonzalez said in a conference call Wednesday. "It's going to be a little weird, but I'm looking forward to it. "I know this is the last time that I'll ever get to play in Kansas City and that stadium. That's a beautiful thing to me.

The Friday Blitz: Falcons/Chiefs Edition

Alright Falcon fans, here we go! I know it has been a few weeks, but I am ready to hit the ground running. My thoughts on the preseason are irrelevant, because I do not put much stock in anything I saw. I witnessed our new coordinators showing off some new schemes, but overall I was not floored. I am extremely optimistic this season because I cannot foresee a scenario in-which...

5 Keys if the Falcons Want to Improve in 2012

Often when people look to see if a team has improved, they will measure it with wins and losses. And while that is not a bad way to do so, it is not a true measure of a team’s ability. Because you’re not playing the same schedule year to year, and even the teams that you do play annually aren’t always the same quality as they were in previous years. Every NFL season brings...

Atlanta at Kansas City This game could turn into a thriller with Matty “Ice” Ryan threading the needle quite a bit to his two superstar wide receivers, Julio Jones and Roddy White. The Chiefs have a solid devastating as well in their backfield. Jamaal Charles and Peyton Hillis can move the chains in a variety of ways, and it is Matt Cassel’s job to take care of the ball and...
