Gonzo having a Benjamin Button season.
Tony Gonzalez reached the century mark on Sunday, and I'm not talking about his birthday.
The Falcons tight end caught his 100th career touchdown, a mark that ties him for 6th all-time in receiving touchdowns with Steve Largent and Tim Brown. Gonzalez came into the game with 50 catches for 495 yards on the season, but has been adamant that he's likely to retire at the end of the season. If he decides not to retire, however, he might only need to play another 15 years to catch Jerry Rice for first all-time at 197 career touchdown catches.
With the way he's playing at age 36, he might be able to do it.
Gonzalez has put up a 50-catch season for 15 straight years, a 70-catch season for nine straight years, and now has triple digits for career touchdowns. It's a good thing he plays for Atlanta now, because he probably would have retired years ago if he still had to do this with the Chiefs.
