Football: Another milestone for Gonzalez

Tony Gonzalez, whose bobblehead was given out at a pair of Cal basketball games this week nearly 17 years after he left for the NFL, had another productive Sunday.

Gonzalez, 37, caught six passes for 62 yards for the Atlanta Falcons, including his 110th career touchdown, an ongoing NFL record for tight ends.

In the process, the former Cal two-sport star also went over the 15,000-yard receiving mark. He now has caught 1,313 passes for 15,008 yards.

(In case you’re wondering, that more than 8 1/2 miles).

He is just the fifth NFL player to surpass 15,000 yards, joining Jerry Rice, Terrell Owens, Randy Moss and Isaac Bruce.

Gonzalez’s receptions total is No. 2 in league history and his TD receptions rank sixth.


Ex-Cal star DeSean Jackson had a monster day with 1o receptions for 195 yards and a touchdown, but the Eagles lost 48-30 at Minnesota. Jackson’s updated season stats are impressive: 75 catches for 1,275 yards and nine touchdowns.


Marshawn Lynch had 47 yards rushing and a touchdown and caught six passes for 73 yards in the Seahawks’ 23-0 road victory over the NY Giants.

    When does the dementia start?

    Watched the Heisman Award show last night.

    Where was your Heisman winner over the last 50 years?

  • Drizzlyboy

    Wow, two idiotic comments in a row.

    Congrats to the former Cal players who are excelling at the next level.

    Congrats, especially, to Tony Gonzalez who has put together a Hall of Fame career with class.

    Go Bears!

    Wow, covinared… Just wow. Are you proud of that post?

  • covinared

    My apologies. Should not drink and post. Seemed funny at the time. Now I see its tasteless.

  • BlueNGold

    Idiotic comments from moron are an unfortunate fact of life. Apology for Covina’s momentary lapse of judgment and good taste accepted.

  • Eric

    Marvin Jones had another TD catch. Kendricks had an interception, a sack, and three tackles for loss.

    “Watched the Heisman show last night”

    I have no social life and spend my weekends watching sports on tv. Then when I wake up the first thing I do is rush to my computer to post hate about Cal. Someday I will save up enough money and have a girlfriend for an hour. In a West Oakland motel.”

    Pity the troll — THIS is all he has.

    GoGoBears please grow up and refrain from feeding Amy. You are acting shamefully immature

    BTW Have you seen EW lately on the bus?

  • BlueNGold


    11+ years of stalking Cal fans and still stalking.

  • clonedoc

    Also watched the Heisman awards show.

    Where was Reggie Bush’s picture?…oh yeah
    Well at least Matt Leinart recently surpassed…oh yeah
    OK but Carson Palmer…oh yeah
    Fine, but Mark…BUTT FUMBLE! (no Heisman, but thought this apropos)

    Congrats to Tony Gonzalez. Heisman who? The records speak for themselves.

    #2 Make sure that Matt Barkley (if he ever gets to play) asks his teammate DeSean Jackson how to succeed in Philly since the former hasn’t done so well when given the opportunity thus far.

  • GoGoBears

    Notice the lack of denial that little freak was home alone both weekend nights last week.


    NO GF.


  • MoreNCsarecoming

    Oh now GoGoBears blows a gasket! Look at the all caps message. Poor fatty with such an anger problem. Now I know how EW must have felt.

    The only one in denial is you. You got punked by a very respectable poster and you go into an attack mode on me. You attacked the wrong person but it is no surprise. We already know what a bad advisor you are.

    Stick to imaginary skateboarding stories with former QBs. At least you can’t hurt anyone that way. HAHAHAHAHA

  • GoGoBears

    You avoid talking about how you admitted you were home alone on a saturday night. You are always home alone.

    How come you don’t want to talk about how you post on weekend nights, and in the past have posted on Valentine’s Night, Halloween Night, etc — which proves you have no family or friends and are all alone.

    You like talking about graduation, but you don’t want to talk about how you had to leave UC Davis law school after having a breakdown and could never go back. Are you a lawyer now — of course not.

    You never want to talk about how you abandoned your team in the early part of the season. Come on moron — point to a post before Oregon got hired in which you admit to being an $C fan. You won’t find one.

    You never want to talk about how the SC fans have punked you and banned you. Show us where morencsarecoming is on an SC fan board — you can’t do it.

    You never want to talk about reality, because the truth is your reality is very lonely. YOU HAVE NOTHING BUT YOUR HATE FOR CAL, and while you annoy us and we hate you, we also pity you. THERE IS NOT ONE PERSON ON THIS FORUM WHO WOULD TRADE PLACES WITH YOU.

    Pity the troll, folks for THIS is ALL he has.

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    “You never want to talk about reality…” really GoGo Bears aka The Advising Bear on BI aka at least 50 sign ins on scout and SF Gate?

    Let’s talk about reality.

    There is a poster on this site named “The Wisdom Cow”. He (as well as you) posted regularly on SF Gate. I believe that by profession The Cow is a lawyer not a very wise one thanks in part to you.

    You led him to believe that I was some poor lady who worked at UC Davis. The Cow outs her on a public blog. He gives not only her name but he gives her personal details, where she worked, etc. on a public blog!

    Then a bunch of UC East Bay sheep who read his information began to harass this poor woman at her workplace. Obviously she was an innocent victim (just like EW was an innocent victim). Tired of being bullied and intruded upon she got onto the blog in order to make a disclaimer. The Cow was lucky she didn’t get an attorney and sue.

    I believe The Cow made an apology. However, it was you who was at fault because you did nothing to stop him. You led him to believe all of that garbage. Instead of apologizing for being the real culprit you just weaseled your way into the background.

    That’s reality folks. I am sure that is why GldnBear71 told you that you are acting shamefully immature. Punked again.

  • BlueNGold

    moron, no one here cares about your ongoing and obsessive stalking of Cal fans, so shut TF up please.
