I'm shocked. It didn't make sense not to do this deal. It's winding down for me and this team is rebuilding. If they said from the get-go, 'No, we're not going to trade you,' that would've been better than how this whole thing unfolded. But that's not what happened.Nope. Not at all. Gonzalez says he won't let his anger affect his play, he'll be a good soldier, he'll still save choking victims, etc. but this isn't the way he wanted to go out.
"But you know what? I can't cry about it. If anything, this has motivated me even more. I'm a Chief, will be happy to be a Chief and will bust my butt for the Chiefs. I was never not happy being a Chief. I just wanted the chance to spend my last couple of years winning a title, not rebuilding. But I'm here to help rebuild, I'll work with all our young guys and get after it like I always have."To give this a more positive spin, let's congratulate Gonzalez on becoming the Chiefs newest assistant coach.
