I first want to say congrats on winning the superbowl last year. You guys did us a huge favor and crushed those stinkin patsies!!!
But I wanna know what do you guys think of martellus bennett? How has he looked this preseason? I have watched him since his days at Texas A&M and having to sit behind one of the best tight ends in the nfl in Dallas. How is he fittin into your offense? Do you guys expect big things out of him?
GOod luck this year guys!!! Victor Cruz looks like the real deal!!!
Put it this way Eli is going to have a lot of fun with him this season... and no I don't mean that in a Harooni-type way
He's a big target with good hands and speed. Finally will get the showcase it with us.
The black unicorn.
I'm ALL IN are you?
"Once a Giant, ALWAYS, a Giant."
The Unicorn is a great blocker, can't wait for season to start
i like him so far, but then again who doesn't love a black unicorn
So far so good. He is having a very good pre-season and has made some great catches especially the TD he caught last week vs Jax. Bennett will shine in this offense as the featured TE. MB has always been a superior blocker which will benefit our awful running game.
He's big, he can block, he's fast, and he can catch ! He is going to be great in the red zone ! He's the guy to watch . Eli, loves him and every one else does too.

on that pass play to randle, bennett beat his coverage badly and was completely open on an out post. i noticed a few times bennett got a lot of seperation and he just wasnt even looked at by the qbs. whcih reminded me that the te is not the 1 or 2 option all that often...not yet at least

Bennett is faster than both of those guys so I expect him to do work. Maybe in the pre season they're not exploiting the match up but i'm pretty sure they will during the season.
