Tony Gonzalez admits pushing off is a big part of his success

I hope he didn't think he was fooling anyone!


As Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez prepares for the final game of his Hall of Fame career, he attributes some of his success to something that drives opposing players nuts: Pushing off.

Defensive players routinely complain that big, physical receivers like Gonzalez get away with offensive pass interference. Gonzalez admitted to ESPN.com that pushing off is a part of his game.

I think Ive always done that, and I still do it, he said. If you ask any defender in the league, they say Im the Push-off King, but its just creating leverage.

Smart players figure out where the lines are between what the officials will allow and what will draw a flag, and keep their play on the legal side of the line. Gonzalez has always been a smart player, and thats part of what has made him a great player.
