  • Great Bennett Interview - New York Times

    Apologies if this article has been posted already, I searched but did not see it.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/20/sp...?ref=samborden

    This is a pretty interesting interview from a very unique guy. I really dig his kid-like enthusiasm and his non-sequitors, he sounds like a complete awesome nerd. He's quickly becoming one of my favorite giant personalities. Hopefully, he keeps working and striving to be in that elite group of TE's. Also, linked in is his cap'n crunch video if anyone hasn't seen it, its pretty amazing for several reasons, including a super mario bros backbeat. Yeah, this guy is pretty f***** cool.

    “Basically, I like cool stuff that becomes cooler when you make it a ninja,”

    I mean, how can you argue with that?

    Go Giants.

        gotta love the ending. you can live here for the rest of your career bennett, just sign with the giants at a home discount rate. i honestly could see bennett, as described by the article, taking less to stay here if the hypothetical situation ever arises.

                  Reading that article Bennett sounds more and more like a younger Brandon Jacobs in personality, just one that plays a different position. He honestly sounds like a big kid who just wants to let his imagination run wild...

                      I like the dude, but I would not give him a big long contract he will demand. He seems interested in everything. Yeah, football is part of it, but he doesnt sound like he is 100% dedicated. I think that is what they saw in Dallas when he wasn't the #1. Sounds like a good guy though.

                          I'd rather keep him... he seems to understand our system relatively well, and I'd rather not burn an early draft pick on a TE when we need more OL...

                            If he ends up on par with or better than Shockey's top numbers while Shockey was at his best with Eli, Bennett is going nowhere and he will get a long term deal with the Giants for sure.

                              Haha, good one! Hopefully He's a mighty magical steed who comes from the land of rainbows and dragons. I also like that he wants to get better and is not impressed with his own play.
