    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.

    Re: Martellus Bennett on Cowboys Hard Knocks

    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.

    only thing I've seen from rookies is humbleness , willingness to learn, and being extremely grateful for an opportunity

    I saw none of that from him

    and I doubt it was all editing

    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.
    In the midst of this losing season, 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, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    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.
