"That's going to continue to grow and get better so I'm excited about that," Tonyan said. "If you're a believer, keep believing, if not, see ya!"
Tonyan also raved about his quarterback ... telling us Aaron Rodgers wasn't wrong for saying his bad years are some guys' career ones.
"I mean, the numbers don't lie," Tonyan said, "and, on top of it, he's been doing it for a long time."
As for Tonyan's new nickname -- Baby George Kittle -- ya gotta hear why he's charged up to be compared to the San Francisco 49ers superstar!
