Changes of Tony Gonzalez Retiring - SportsCenter 01/21/2013

Anthony David Gonzalez (born February 27, 1976) is an American football tight end for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of California, Berkeley, and was recognized as an All-American. He was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round of the 1997 NFL Draft.

Gonzalez, a thirteen-time Pro Bowl selection, currently holds the NFL records for TD receptions (107) and total reception yards (14,268) by a tight end. Although widely considered to be one of the greatest tight ends of all time, Gonzalez spent the majority of his career with a Chiefs squad in a prolonged slump and did not win a playoff game until the Atlanta Falcons defeated the Seattle Seahawks 30-28 on January 13, 2013, in his 16th NFL season.

Andy Reid is Fired as Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach NFL

Andy Reid is out after 14 years coaching the Philadelphia Eagles, three people familiar with the decision told The Associated Press following Sunday's 42-7 season-ending loss to the New York Giants.

Reid is scheduled to meet with owner Jeffrey Lurie on Monday to discuss his future and an official announcement will come afterward, according to one person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because a final agreement hasn't been reached. That person says there's a chance Reid might remain with the team in some capacity.

Reid is due to make $6 million in 2013 in the final year of his contract. He said he wants to coach next year, but it's possible Lurie could persuade him to take a season off and perhaps help out in the front office in an "advisory" role.

Giants Eagles Welcome 400 From Newtown | Sandy Hook Elementary School New York vs Philadelphia

About 400 residents of Newtown, Conn., attended the New York Giants-Philadelphia Eagles game Sunday. Among them were a few families who lost children in the massacre this month, the Giants said. One was the family of Jack Pinto, the 6-year-old boy buried in a No. 80 jersey of Giants receiver Victor Cruz.

"We certainly wanted to honor and respect them," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "We wanted to try to do our part to help them in the healing process. I hope they left with some inspiration today."

The families arrived in nine chartered buses. There were some 200 students from the school system to which Sandy Hook Elementary School belongs. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell greeted the Newtown group in a stadium tunnel. The residents formed a gantlet to welcome players from both teams before the game. Then they held hands during the anthem.

"It was awesome," Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora said after the Giants' 42-7 victory. "Imagine what they went through on that horrific day. For them to come out here and support us as they did, it was an unbelievable feeling. We had a great effort out there for them."

Coughlin and Eagles coach Andy Reid slowly walked the gantlet and said hello to as many people as they could.

The game was played just more than two weeks after the attack that shattered Newtown and reverberated across the country — 20 children and six adults slain in one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history.

The team did not allow access to the guests, saying they just wanted to attend the game and enjoy themselves. The Newtown visitors held at least a dozen hand-made signs in the stadium. One green-and-white sign read, "Sandy Hook: We Choose Love."

Giants fullback Henry Hynoski said he could not have had a better 24th birthday than sharing it with the families from Newtown.

"It was emotional, running out and giving them high-fives and seeing the joy on their faces," Hynoski said. "We played for them. After all they've been through, they were out to see us. It gave us a lot of extra drive to get the win for them."

Football Kicker Trick Shots Video Goes Viral

A video of a man from Norway performing football kicker trick shots is going viral. Havard Rugland's "Kickalicious" video has him kicking onto moving boats and cars, and hitting consecutive 50-yard field goals. Some may question what editing was involved, but Patrick Jones thinks with kicking this good, the NFL should start recruiting in Europe.

Calvin Johnson breaks Jerry Rice's single-season receiving yardage record

The Detroit Lions fell to 4-11 in a lost and disappointing season, but there's one thing this franchise can be proud of in 2012, and that's the performance of receiver Calvin Johnson. Despite the fact that every defense he faces focuses on him almost exclusively, the absence of any consistent target to take the heat off of him, and a quarterback in Matthew Stafford whose productivity and mechanics have been inconsistent to say the least, "Megatron" has performed as few receivers ever have. And with 2:57 left in the Lions' Saturday night loss to the Atlanta Falcons, he broke Jerry Rice's single-season record for receiving yardage with a 26-yard catch from Stafford.

After the catch, Johnson handed the ball to his father, Calvin Sr., who was on the sideline.
"It's an accomplishment that took a lot of work," Johnson said after the game. "You're still in the moment -- in the play that just happened, so I was still focused. I don't think I even said anything when I gave my dad the ball. I just gave him a hug. But when I think back on it, it's a special moment.

"We had tried that route earlier, but it got walled off by the MIKE [linebacker, Will] Witherspoon," Johnson said of the record-breaking catch. "We called the route again, and I just bounced it around -- I was just like, 'See the ball, see the ball.' The guys were telling me that I was 4 or 5 yards away -- everybody was keeping the record up."

The old record was set by Rice in 1995 with 1,848, and Johnson, who ended the game with 11 receptions for 225 yards, now has 1,892 for the season. He has a very good opportunity to become the first receiver to break 2,000 yards for a single season, a goal once thought unobtainable -- even by the greatest receiver of all time.

"It's gonna go down," Rice told ESPN's Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden in the third quarter. "This guy is just really amazing. Watching him go out there and do his thing on the football field -- he's a true talent, and that's why they call him Megatron. You never want your records to be broken, but if anyone's gonna do it, I would prefer Megatron to do it. I think this guy is trying to not only break my record, but he's trying to get to 2,000 yards. I tried and was not successful, but I think he's gonna do it.

"He can run every route -- from the slant, to running by you with that 4.35 speed. He can out-jump out -- just get up in the air, levitate, and make those incredible catches. He has all the tools."
