Blurb from Peter King in MMQB today:

"This isn't tennis or golf or even basketball, where three great players, together, can win a championship. This is the ultimate, ultimate team sport, with 22 guys on the field at once, where you need all three phases of the game working for you to win big. For people to say my career's been diminished because I haven't won a playoff game, I say bulls**t! I'm a frickin' tight end, not the quarterback. My career will mean nothing less if I'm never on a team that wins a playoff game."


-- Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez, in my Sports Illustrated story on Gonzalez this week, on his frustration with the perception that his career won't mean as much if he doesn't win a playoff game. Gonzalez, 36, has never won one, and he says he will very likely retire at the end of the year, regardless what happens with Atlanta in the postseason.

I'm going to agree with that. He's right, a TE can't really win a game by himself. Besides, for most of his career he's been on a team coached by Marty Shot and Marty Shot II, so go figure he hasn't won a playoff game, which again isn't his fault.

Totally agree with Gonzalez, even though it looks a bit negative.
