    Default Tony Gonzalez says his farewell to KC is only temporary

    Tony Gonzalez said goodbye to Kansas City on Tuesday, but the legendary tight end said he’s merely on loan to the Atlanta Falcons.
    The 10-time Pro Bowler met with reporters Tuesday morning in the revolving restaurant at the top of the Hyatt Regency Crown Center, saying that he might be going to Atlanta now after last week’s trade, but Gonzalez insisted that he’ll someday retire as a Chief.
    Gonzalez was traded to the Falcons last Thursday for a second-round pick in the 2010 NFL draft. It ended the 33-year-old’s 12-year affiliation with Kansas City, which traded up to draft him as a 21-year-old in 1997. He has since broken every major tight end receiving record, and former Chiefs president Carl Peterson on Tuesday said Gonzalez was undoubtedly the best to ever play his position.
    Gonzalez said he planned to play two or three years in Atlanta as he continues to search for playoff success. He said the pursuit of a Super Bowl championship is “everything” to him now, but he said that at the end of his career, he planned to re-sign with the Chiefs for as little as one day, just so he can retire with the team that drafted him.
    Gonzalez also said there was no doubt he’d enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a Chiefs player, regardless of what happens with the Falcons.

    Still dont make me feel better. I hope he gets what he wants.

    But Jason Taylor wanted out of the Dolphins and got what he wanted.. only to watch his former team make it to the playoffs while the Redskins sat at home.

    Gonzo could end up regretting his decision, especially in the 2010 season.

    I'm glad to hear he say he will always be a Chief. Doesn't make me feel any better that he is now a Falcon, but to me he will always be the heart of my Kansas City Chiefs.

    I still don't get it. Tony would rather be a Falcon than a Chief? WTF is that? These one day contracts don't mean jack.

    The only reason a beer sweats around Canada is because he's decided it will be the next beer he drinks.

    It makes me feel a lot better because that what I was disappointed about; Him NOT retiring as a chief and him NOT being enducted into the hall of fame as a chief! So now I'm really happy!

How many HOFers that never won Championships are in with the one and only team they ever played on? He is a selfish POS IMO. Good riddons.
    IMO that's going a bit far. He has basically already been announced to be a HOFer. Instead of saying "TOUCHDOWN TONY GONZALEZ!!!". They say "TOUCHDWON FUTURE HALL OF FAMER!!!". I do admit that he was be a bit biast and I also agreee that to be a HOF he didn't need to leave the chiefs if that's what he's worried about, but, IMO I'm just happy enouph that he's thinking of returning to the Chiefs!
