  • Martellus Bennett on Cowboys Hard Knocks

    ok...I understand this show was 4 years ago and he was a rookie at the time.....let me first say that

    but somethings about people just do not change

    NFLN has been running the'08 Cowboys HK....and a lot of it revolves around Bennett

    this guy comes off as an entitled , arrogant, unwilling to learn, lazy, eye rolling know it all who has a big problem with authority in this show...the Cowboy coaches are constantly on his case and complaining about these very issues

    like I said..... obviously he was a rookie and had a lot to learn....but no ones personality can COMPLETELY change

    Im sure some of these traits are still there

    I can't help but wonder if he is rolling his eyes at coach Pope acting similarly to the way he did in the show

    in no way shape or form can I see coach Coughlin putting up with what coach Phillips put up with from this guy

    Totally disagree with that.




    Disrespective behavior, over inflated self worth, "eye rolling" are something ALL young people go through. It's a rite of passage. Testing boundries. MOST grow out of it.




    If he hasn't, he will very quickly under The General.

    I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

      I'm hesitant any time we take a player from the Cowboys. MB is no exception. Dallas' culture is to blame. Going back to the 90's teams, players in that city all have a sense of entitlement and an attitude of SELF rather than TEAM. Witten is the exception to the rule that proves it. MB better be ready to adjust, like it or not, he's a GIANT now. He needs to act the part. If he doesn't, I have no doubt TC will handle him.

        I agree that no one's true nature changes. If Bennett can't suppress the "me, me, me attitude" he won't get far with TC. To be a success with the Giants he'll not only have to accept that he's just a cog in the machine, he'll have to work like *** to be the best cog he can be.

        Your point about people's having an innate nature that does not change is one reason I can't accept M. Vick as being a changed man. But that's another story and this isn't the time.

        I hope that Bennett wants to succeed with the Giants enough that it overcomes his ego.

            Wouldn't you think he'd see this as an opportunity of a life time and work his *** off?

              Football has been very, very good to us.
              After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
              But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

              # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

              1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
              2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
              3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
              4-New York Giants!!!
              5-NE
              Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                  I would hope so Roa

                  but wouldn't you think being chosen in the second round of the NFL draft would be thought of as an opportunity of a lifetime ?

                    What Idisagree with is the notion that it's a lifelong behavior. People change all the time. Especially young people.

                      I'm hoping the winning atmosphere and team first attitude rubs off on Martellus Bennett.




                      If not, just put JPP across him for a week. He'll be singing a different tune real quick.

                        Interesting you brought this up YA. I remember reading some saying martellus bennett's character concerns or any type of work ethic conerns in the past were just unsupported or not factual at all

                        Either way, by adding a lot of muscle and turning himself into "a freak" (according to him) hopefully that tells you this kid has turned the corner and is going to work his ***** off this year

                          One thing that Bennett will find out, if this is how he still is, that the players have Coughlin's back. Coughlin has even convinced players like Rolle that his way is the best and has made him a believer. I think that Bennett will not be allowed by his peers to become a distraction.

                          Just hoping and believeing until he proves otherwise that this is his past.

                            I have to agree. Most people change. I know I did a lot of foolishness in my younger years.

                            He's got good opportunity to help defend our title. It's time for him to take things more seriously and professionally.

                              He's finally on a hard-working, disciplined team.

                              Not only that, but former SB champs.

                              If he doesn't know he needs to ship up, he doesn't belong in the NFL.

                              This might be his final shot to crack a NFL starting position IMO
