12:17 PM ET 12.01 | Future Pro Football Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez is in his final NFL season. Unfortunately, it has not gone at all as planned. The Atlanta Falcons entered the season as one of the NFC's favorites, but injuries began to pile up and a struggling defense led to the team quickly plummeting to one of the league's worst. While Gonzalez could be upset about the way his great career is coming to an end, Gonzalez has no complaints. Gonzalez has always been one of the classiest players in the league, so it is no surprise he is approaching this situation with the utmost class as well. It is sad to see him go out on a struggling team, but he will always be remembered as one of the NFL greats and it is only a matter of time until he is forever enshrined in Canton.

He needs to fire his "Get Tony a Ring" campaign manager.

Still a great career that will one day end up being displayed at the HOF.

Looking at the fire he's walking into there, I'd say he's heading to hell.

Nope... Kansas City lost the game yesterday when they kept trying to throw a TD inside the 5 yard line on the final drive.... Soooooooooo typical of Andy Reid.

Are you sure this is his last season ?

Like the death of the cartoon character Brian on the show "Family Guy" maybe some team will find a way to bring him back.

He may not even be on a team as the season starts but when some team near mid season realizes they need a TE to get them through the playoffs they might give him a call.

I said before the trade deadline this year that Green Bay should have traded for him. Who knows it may have changed the Karma on the team and Rodgers would be healthy and Green Bay would be in the playoff hunt. Probably in first place in the NFC North.
