Tony Gonzalez is the greatest tight end in NFL history. It really isn't a question. The guy has broken nearly every receiving record for a tight end, and will only need 79 more yards to become the career receiving leader among tight ends. He may do that in his first game this season.
He's also one of the greatest Cal players to ever but on the blue and gold and run out of the tunnel on Saturdays, and onto the basketball courts on countless other days.
Oh and he's also a savior. Not really Jesus Christ level, but that's what Ken Hunter might think of him after Gonzalez saved him from choking to death last week at a restaurant. Yahoo! Sports has the story.
"Gonzalez, sitting with his back to Hunter’s table, looked around when he heard Hunter’s companion yelling.
“She was screaming, `He can’t breathe, he can’t breathe,”’ Gonzalez said by phone from California, where he lives in the offseason. “The whole restaurant was quiet. Nobody was doing anything.”
Then I saw he was turning blue. Everybody in the restaurant was just kind of sitting there wide-eyed.”"
Just sitting there? Sheesh. They must have all been from Stanford.
