     ... with every game Tony Gonzalez plays. On Feb 27, 2009 (Tony's birthday!!), Dominik traded a 2nd round and their 2010 5th round pick for Kellen Winslow the junior. On April 23, 2009, the Falcons traded a 2nd round pick in the 2010 draft for.... Tony Gonzalez...
     Imagine the fate of both franchises if Dominik had traded for Gonzalez instead. IMO, he's been the MVP of their offense... more than once...

Great player, but not sure he would of altered the history of the franchise.

I still think we'd be in the same position. Tight end isn't the reason why we were bad in these last couple of years

Meh....I think he would have helped in Freeman's maturation process and gave our offense the leader that it hadn't had before VJax, but at that point we still had basically complete crap for WR's other than Mike Williams and Raheem Morris was our head coach. If we had him this year along with Doug Martin and Vincent Jackson then that's another story.

He absolutely would have been better than K2, but likely would have retired after 2011. Draft position would have been out of the top 10, but Raheem would still have been fired.

Tony G wouldn't make a huge difference with  the poor coaching, execution, and discipline we have seen these last years mainly the morris years

Morris would of drove him to early retirement I suspect.

The biggest mistake that year in 09 was hiring Raheem Raw Morris and not going after the other Harbough brother. Jim interviewed with the jets but Rex ryan got it

I believe that was the Glazers call  IIRC.

Disagree.

There are plenty of mistakes that Dom has actually made that could be pointed out as his "biggest".

I'm certainly not defending Dom, but you could play the "what it" or "they should have done this" game with every NFL GM and find fault. To blame him for not making one trade in favor of a different trade is a bit unfair.

Criticism of the contracts/signings of Clayton, Black, Wright, Trueblood, Joseph, T-Jax, Ward..etc, far outweigh this "could've" scenario.

Also, he wouldn't have made anymore of an impact than what Winslow did in 2010, so we probably still miss the playoffs that year...and we definitely would have missed the last two years because of QB/defensive issues.


Until preseason, you stay classy Red Board.

The Winslow trade has been his biggest mistake but Gonzalez has nothing to do with it. Why would a rebuilding team have traded for an aging TE?

But trading for Winslow turned into taking Benn over Gronkowski.

He's made bigger mistakes . At least we got a little production of Soldjah boy. Some of Dom's moves gave us absolutely nothing.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

Tony Gonzalez provided the Chiefs with a list of teams he was willing to play for.....the Falcons eventually being the one that made the best offer.    Anyone think Tampa was on that list?    TG was not coming here.

Its going to look to some people like a different play every time we use it, but pretty soon theyll be able to recognize it....by watching the official for the first-down signal.   -Vincent T. Lombardi

Security blanket for a young qb.


Not sure it had anything to do with Gronk. Several teams had taken Gronk completely off their boards due to injury risk.
