Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez Desperate To Raise Lombardi Trophy

    The Atlanta Falcons are undefeated, 7-0. Future Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez wants to make sure you -- and more importantly, we -- take notice.

    "Is the national media making a big deal about us like they would if it was Philly, Green Bay or New England? No, they're not," Gonzalez said Thursday, according to USA Today Sports. "We played Philly and beat them. And Philly was on TV all week."

    Valid point. While Matt Ryan did visit "NFL AM" this week to discuss the Falcons season and his MVP chances, we have talked a lot about Michael Vick here at NFL Media.

    "We don't care," Gonzalez said. "Our goals are bigger than just getting national media attention. They'll recognize us if we go where we want to go. I've day-dreamed about raising that Lombardi Trophy. I can see it in my mind."

    The 16-year pro is desperate to culminate this season with a championship. He said before the season that he was "95 percent sure" this would be the final year of his career.

    i'm not sure Tony G. has ever been on a team that has won a single playoff game.

    I can't remember him winning one. There was one year the Chiefs were 13-3 and got knocked out in the divisional game...

    He has not won a playoff game in his career. He won't win one this year either.

    They're the best team in the NFC right now. No reason they can't pull out a couple/few wind In The playoffs this year playing the way they are...

    didn't they go like 13-3 a couple of years ago and lose in the first round? Perhaps they will win one but very doubtful.

    You talking about the Chiefs? They did in the early 2000's and I think they may have did it one or two times early in Gonzalez' career and then bowed out in the divisional round with no wins to show for it.

    The Falcons did it in 2010 I think. Same result...

    They might have the best record but they aren't the best team by any means. Their pass O is beasty but their run game is crap and the defense is spotty at best. They've had a pretty cupcake schedule thus far as well, and it doesnt get much harder the rest of the way. Giants in week 15 thats about it, and by that point they should have everything locked up anyway.

    this is said about every QB until they dont. romo, vick, rivers, cutler all have the same label. eli and peyton both did until they won

    imo matt ryan and peyton manning have a lot in common

    And some never shake it.

    Until they do, it deserves to be said.
