05:33 PM ET 01.17 | Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez has had a brilliant 16-year career in the NFL, and when he retires he'll have a spot waiting for him in Canton. It's currently unclear, though, as to when Gonzalez plans to end his career. Until last weekend, Gonzalez had amazingly not been on a single team that has won a playoff game. Having one postseason win under his belt, according to one teammate, has made Gonzalez consider retiring after this season.

I want the Falcons to beat the 49ers and then win the SB so Tony leaves the game with a Super Bowl victory!

It seems likely the Falcons will be in the Super Bowl.

We have decided on the baby's room but haven't bought a crib yet. I'll let my wife determine the colors and we don't want to know what sex it will be. I'll be happy if it is either a boy or girl as long as we have a healthy baby.

If he's retiring after this season, I guess that means his retirement starts Monday.

Not so sure about that. Probably 50-50. Should be a good game.But I hope Atlanta wins.

AS long as we get 2 quality games. I think both of them are 6-5 and pick 'em.

I believe the NE/Raisins game is much closer to a pick em that he the other one. As much as I'd like to see Atlanta beat San FranGomorrah and reach their first SB, I just don't think it will happen.

Atlanta had the best record in the NFC this year and will be tough to beat at home after choking the past few years in the playoffs.
