09:00 AM ET 02.08 | During an appearance on CBS Sports Radio, host Doug Gottlieb presented a hypothetical the Falcons are 10-0, and they have yet to replace Tony Gonzalez at tight end. "Can I got back to the last couple of years when I used to say I'm 97-percent sure" Gonzalez said. "I'd probably take them up on that offer, especially if they're 10-0." Yes, he was laughing. But he could have laughed and said, "No. No. No. I'm done."

LOL the Falcons going 10-0, their hero coming back for a swan song. A child's fantasy.

If they haven't replaced him, they aren't 10-0.

Misleading headline again. I didn't realize the New York Compost bought Peo Football Talk.

I'd like to see him play one last season, but on a team like Seattle or New England, where he has a legitimate chance of winning a ring.

I'm sorry but this Atlanta team has reached its ceiling. They need to make a few significant changes to get to the next level.

Hey, Tony, make up your mind. This "farewell tour" has gone on way too long. Why don't you just buy a SB ring?

The squealing Tight End who thinks teams owe him something!! Time to call it a day!

Tony, Tony, Tony, dear boy do yourself a favor. Go to Green Bay if you want a shot at making the playoffs. They need a TE.

We'll GLADLY take him!! He ain't ever seeing 10-0 with Atlanta. Heck the way they've been going, even the playoffs are a stretch

He just threw his QB under the bus; he likely is not going back to the Falcons.

Bus? From what I read, he threw him under train loaded with coal cars.

Ha bet Tony wishes he didn't crush Seattles trade back in the day. Could've been his Bettis/Lewis/Elway moment.

They might win 10 games in the next three seasons combined.

Please just stay retired. You've had your day.

Two losses by a combined 7 points is hardly a dismantling and the Giants are now just a shell of the team that beat the Patriots.

Sounds a little like the former QB whose name won't be spoken.
