Tony Gonzalez Not Thrilled With Roman Harper, To Put It Lightly

It’s all eyes on this coming Sunday’s game with the San Francisco 49ers, but one last note from last week’s thrilling overtime win by the Atlanta Falcons over the reigning Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. In an interview with 790 The Zone on Wedensday, Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez was asked about the shot he took from Roman Harper. His response:

"Yeah. I don’t know if he was trying to take me out, but I think when you’re tackling at the knee, to me that’s a little bit chicken. (Host: Somebody got you up high.) I got high-lowed there. It hurt and I paid for it. Yesterday I could barely walk to be honest with ya. I got some great anti-inflammatories working for me so I’m walking a little bit today, but that could’ve been season over for me that night. I had to let ‘em, I can’t say it on air, but I let him know he wasn’t a very nice person for that."
