Former Texas A&M standouts Michael and Martellus Bennett have never been afraid to speak their minds.
From talking about their quarterbacks to discussing the opponents, the brothers rarely hold back. And in an ESPN.com profile, the two brothers offer their opinions on a variety of former SEC players.
The two’s strongest comments were directed at Jay Cutler. Martellus played with Cutler in the Chicago for the past three seasons. Michael called Cutler, “The worst quarterback in the league.” Martellus said Cutler would throw it into double coverage when Martellus was open.
Martellus on Eli Manning: “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 on former Tennessee tight end Jason Witten, who he played with in Dallas: “I hated Jason Witten. I appreciated his game, but I always hated him.”
Michael on former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton: “Probably the quarterback I like to hit the most.”
Michael on former Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning: “In the NBA, LeBron James, Chris Paul … they’re at the forefront. There’s no Peyton Manning standing up for the rest of the players. He’s a great player, but what has he done for the league?”
The pair have both been to pro bowls as Michael is an defensive lineman and Super Bowl champion for the Seattle Seahawks, while Martellus led all tight ends in catches during the 2014 season. Martellus signed with the New England Patriots in the offseason. Michael went undrafted while Martellus was an undrafted free agent.
