  • I wasn't that impressed with Bennett's blocking this year..

    Even though he put up good stats, he was highly touted as a great run blocker. Which is essentially why we targeted him in the first place. Unfortunately, I didn't see a high level of blocking ablity, I think he was good in the run game but not great.

    I have to believe that is why we probably let him walk. Our scheme requires blocking first and receiving second.

    Not to jump on a hate fest because he is a very likable player, but I didn't like his demeanor when we would have a negative play. He also would loaf on occasional run and pass plays.

    He had highs and lows. Not the perfect tight end that everyone makes him out to be.

    With all of that said, I wish they would have locked him up for 2 years instead of one.

      He was playing pretty damn well on a bum knee but we have bigger priorities than over paying for a TE.

        He never made those crucial catches like ballard made against the patriots game. He seems to always drop the third down plays.. i would like him to stay but cant afford big time money for tight end.

          Ballard was a gritty, hard nosed player, but Bennett has way more talent.

            Very good summary of his play and impact last year.

              I agree with everything that you said except that he was brought in here for his blocking, i feel he was brought here because of his abilities as a receiver, ones that he only showed glimpses of at Dallas.

              A lot of fans overrate Giants players simply because they wear blue. This team will not be any weaker without Bennet, he will be replaced, or resigned at a reasonable contract, not this 5-7m everyone seems to think he deserves.

                He was the best blocking TE the giants have had since shockey. But I do think he was a better blocker for Dallas. Perhaps he weighed more when he was on dallas

                  The best blokcing TE weve had since Shockey is still on the team, Bear Pascoe. Just too bad thats all he can do.

                    Pascoe is not even close to as good a blocker as Bennett. It's insulting to TEs that can actually block to claim Pascoe is a good blocker

                      EXACTLY! Some people are so full of ****. If anyone thinks Bennet is not the best blocking TE we have had in a LONG time, they dont know football.

                        Ok... Pascoe is a good blocker, he might not be a great one but he is good.

                          Bennet is a much better all around TE, but to say Pascoe is not even close in blocking is a little much. First of all, all TEs can block, and if they cant, adios. To say Pascoe is not a good blocker is just absurd man.

                            Haha, well while I may not be a total stat geek, like some of these guys here (I actually have a life). Ive watched Giants football for 31 years, and I played all my life up till a bad car accident my junior year in high school. I may not sit here and study charts and stats, but I know enough about the game of football. Doesnt take a genius to see that Pascoe is a beast on the line. Like I said earlier tho, its unfortunate that that is all he can do.

                              Indeed, if Pascoe wasn't a good blocker the giants wouldn't even keep him. As you said is unfortunate that he is not really an asset to the passing game, but he is most definitely in the running game. AND HE HURTLED SOMEONE that gots to count for something haha
