With just two games left in his remarkable 17-year career, the Atlanta Falcons' record-setting tight end says it's hard to believe the end is near.
This season has been a major bust for Atlanta, which began training camp as a heavy Super Bowl contender but dropped from playoff contention by losing nine of its first 11 games.
When Atlanta (4-10) visits San Francisco (10-4) on Monday, Gonzalez wants to prove that he's still elite.
Gonzalez is proud he's been able ''to flash greatness and be consistent'' because ''that's what separates average players from good players, good players from Pro Bowl players and Pro Bowl players from Hall of Famers.''
