This is absolutely hilarious, and I’m starting to like Michael Bennett the character.
during a cool feature on ESPN The Magazine — the Seahawks defensive end joined his brother Martellus in a cool sit down with Mina Kimes.
The discussion turned to quarterbacks around the NFL, and the two mercurial stars pulled no punches in trashing the Bears Jay Cutler and others.
Martellus tried to take it easy on Jay, but Michael would have none of it.
“Worst quarterback in the NFL,” the Seahawks defensive end said.
“I’d be open and he’d throw into double coverage,” Martellus said.
The subject turned to Sam Bradford, and the sarcasm was brutal at best.
“The greatest quarterback in the NFL,” Michael said.
“Vicious,” Martellus quipped. “Competitive.”
“A real Joe Montana,” Michael added.
Oh there was more:
Michael: “I’ve got more sacks than he’s got touchdowns.” (This is accurate.)
Martellus: “I’ve caught more balls than he’s completed.” (Also accurate.)
Martellus: “Eli? He’s cool. He’s like a normal white guy you see at the park trying to teach his kids how to play soccer and you know he can’t really play soccer himself.”
Martellus: “The silver fox you never get to see but you hear about. You only get to take one photo, and you have to stay outside for a year just to get it.”
Martellus: “I hated Jason Witten. I appreciated his game, but I always hated him.”
Michael: “Probably the quarterback I like to hit the most.”
