Tony Gonzalez could have quit football and waited for the day when the Pro Football Hall of Fame called and asked for his jacket size. But the star tight end parted ways with the Chiefs instead. Gonzalez's "get mine" attitude had begun to show through his No. 88 jersey. He pouted after a game in 2008 when the coaches didn't call the plays necessary to allow him to break a record at home. Later in the year, he asked to be traded to a contender. Then-General Manager Carl Peterson didn't find a deal to his liking, so Gonzalez remained with the team. Peterson was fired, and his replacement, Scott Pioli, eventually moved Gonzalez to Atlanta for a future second-round pick — a better deal that Peterson, Mr. Feathered Nest himself, was reported to have rejected. Gonzalez's talent and wit (sample quote: "If you're not careful, the NFL can make you stupid") will be missed. But no one could mourn the Chiefs' era of entitlement.
