Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez isn’t happy that the national media continues to disrespect his team even though they’re currently undefeated with a 7-0 record.
“Is the national media making a big deal about us like they would if it was Philly, Green Bay or New England? No, they’re not,” Gonzalez told USA TODAY Sports Thursday. “We played Philly and beat them. And Philly was on TV all week.
“We don’t care. Our goals are bigger than just getting national media attention. They’ll recognize us if we go where we want to go. I’ve day-dreamed about raising that Lombardi Trophy. I can see it in my mind.”
Gonzalez says the Falcons are only going to get better.
“We have a complete team,” Gonzalez said. “I like our chances. But at the same time, we’re very, very far away, and we have to keep getting better.”
The Falcons are the best team in the NFL, since they do have the best record, but I don’t see them holding up the Lombardi trophy at the end of the season.
