Atlanta's Gonzalez upset after allowing rare sack
 
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -- Tony Gonzalez is still bitterly disappointed in himself for allowing a sack for the first time since 1999.

The 13-time Pro Bowl tight end said Thursday that ''it was laziness on my part,'' ''embarrassing'' and ''inexcusable'' when Saints linebacker Junior Galette to sack Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan for a 10-yard loss late in the second quarter of last week's loss at New Orleans.


''I was thinking, 'He's way out there (on the edge), and there's no way he can get to the quarterback,'' Gonzalez said. ''Matt's going to throw it by then, and I just had a slow, lazy kick instead of kicking it back there and getting aggressive with it like I should have, like I've always done.''

Should have called it a day after last season like he said he would. Now he's going to end up retiring after an incredibly disappointing Falcons season.

Did he just subtly suggest, in an offhand way, that Matt Ryan holds on to the ball too long? :lol:.

That is what happens when you skip camp and preseason Tony.

You decide to retire which means some time in the last year or two your heart wasn't in it, you don't make camp or preseason so your rusty.... No one is that good. Rust hits everyone and when the heart leaves, it's time to hang it up.
