A little surprised he didn't take 1 more year. At least he got the playoff win

Sooooo he's still never said he's done?? We still only have this little quote which could be misinterpreted?

He also said he was 97% sure he was retiring before the game. It will be a big surprise if they talk him in to coming back.

I don't think he'd get talked into coming back, but getting this much closer than he'd ever been before will certainly tempt him.

I knew he had said it but to know you came that close, on a team that young and that talented when he obviously still has the ability to play at a high level..... I dunno...... that'd be tough to walk away from IMO.

I only posed my questions b/c everyone is acting like it's a done deal when, in fact, it's not....

Combine this w/ the fact he played at a high level and is obviously more than healthy enough to play and this is exactly why I'm thinking the opposite of you.

I don't think he'll go just yet.

Oh no, you misunderstood me. I think there's a very good chance he comes back, I just think if he does, it won't be because anyone convinced him, it will be the temptation of having finally gotten close.

OK got ya! I did misread that. Based on your first sentence, I thought you said he's done.

Well, after the game he made statements about it being difficult taking off the uniform for the last time, pads, cleats, etc. Almost didn't want to take them off and all that.

So yeah, it's not a done deal and he could definitely come back. But, he's put out some pretty big signs indicating his intentions to retire.

I see him coming back. He'll enjoy his vacation and all that, but once training camp starts up the hunger will hit him.

He's definitely sending mixed signals about this. As I mentioned above, I believe he's going to be back. That Atlanta team is very good and they'll be back and contending next season. Now if he were a Raider, or still a Chief, yeah, I bet he'd hang it up w/o any thoughts LOL.

Getting to the NFCCG has got to be really tempting for him to make a comeback.

He'll be back. He hasn't called it quits, and Atlanta will have a spot open for him regardless of who they grab in the draft.

What mixed signals? He said he was 97% sure he was done, followed that up by saying that its the last time he'll have a jersey on, pads on, cleats on. And that he won't complain b/c the game has given him so much. The only thing that could be interpreted as a mixed signal is him saying that he can still play at a high level. Nothing there says that he is GOING to play. All signs point to him retiring. He could however change his mind, but Tony seems like a guy who once he has his mind made up, its made up, he's not going to waffle.
