How are we going to shutdown Tony Gonzalez?

Very good point. He's not in his prime any more.

So far this year he's got 13 receptions for 160 yards and 2 touchdowns. Considering the bye week, that's 53 yards per game.

I also have faith that Manny Lawson will shut him down... again. And we have plenty of quality LB's on our team that can also chip him.


5 catches for 73 yards and a TD in week one. 7 catches for 71 and a TD in week two. Then only 1 catch against the Pats, while they were running coverage focused on him to specifically shut him out. So apparently the Pats still think he's the most dangerous weapon on that team.

You might not be joking, but that IS a joke though.

Oh really? Yeah Tony G. ONLY had 96 catches for over 1,000 yards LAST year, and 99 catches for over 1,100 the year before that - while playing on a horrible Chiefs offense. Yeah he's nowhere near the player he "used" to be.

He had high volume because the Chiefs had literally nowhere else to go in their offense. So he got a lot of touches....good players on bad teams can look great.

Um..Dwayne Bowe? Yes Gonzalez got a lot of touches, because he was the best player on that offense. That means he also faced a LOT of double coverage, and STILL put up those numbers.

Yes. And the Pats won that game. Great point.
Man Law for pick 6!
