  • Bennett Patterns Game After Falcons' Great

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giant...asXgnnEIDOBQdL

    Excerpt: "Every week Giants tight end Martellus Bennett watches film of the upcoming opponent, studying its defense to detect any tendencies. That’s not uncommon. What is unique is Bennett will often track down film of Tony Gonzalez to see what tidbit he can learn from the Falcons veteran tight end.

    “I study him just about every week,” Bennett said yesterday. “I look to see how he gets open and some of the things he does so I can add it to my repertoire. You wonder how a guy as he gets older continues to get open. He’s just savvy and smooth in how he runs his routes.”

    Bennett will get an up close and personal look at the future Hall of Famer tomorrow when the Giants face the Falcons in Atlanta.

    “He changed the position,” Bennett said. “There used to be only one Tony Gonzalez, who was big and athletic and could run routes and get open. Now there’s six or seven of them. He started it and that’s what everybody started looking for because of him.”

    Bennett considers himself in that group. His stats — 49 catches for 569 yards and five touchdowns — might pale in comparison to Gonzalez’s 81 receptions for 831 yards and seven scores. But Bennett’s impact on the Giants offense has been just as meaningful.

    Think back to training camp when the Giants started without tight end Jake Ballard, who suffered an extensive knee injury in the Super Bowl and was eventually waived and claimed by the Patriots.

    Signed as a free agent from Dallas, Bennett arrived with a reputation of unfulfilled potential. Over his four seasons with the Cowboys, he averaged 21 catches for 211.5 yards per season, playing second fiddle to Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten. After 13 games with the Giants, Bennett has already established career highs in receptions, yards and touchdowns. He’s also a capable blocker, who doesn’t mind getting physical along the line of scrimmage.

    “I don’t care if I catch 10 balls a game or I catch one,” he said. “I can contribute to the game in different ways. People look at tight ends as fantasy points. You don’t get fantasy points for blocking well.” Read more...

    Without the hyper extended knee he would have een done better for a stretch of 3 games.
    Just remember Kevin Love makes more money then OBJ, and OBJ also dunks better.

      Very true. He's not been on the injury report so I hope he's close(r) to 100%

        Great to see the Giants getting more effort and growth out of Bennett than Dallas could.

            +1 I liked what he had to say about blocking being an important part of what he does.

              He could've done this in Dallas, but instead they chose to throw the ball to arguably the best TE in the game. How dare they...

                Accounts I've read lead me to think Bennett got short shrift in Dallas. Its just my opinion, but I still think our coaches took someone else's refuse and mined it into gold.

                    Did you really expect them to say good things about a guy that they lost to a hated division rival?

                      I think we'll get a big game form Bennett, Wilson, Hynoski, and Cruz
