Ring Envy: Martysaurus Edition

-by evaldes101993

Someone suggested I do a Ring Envy with Packers fans’ comments on Bennett. Yes, I know the story is so overblown. However, that still hasn’t stopped the Packers fans from spewing their hatred for Bennett and the Pats, which increased tremendously after hearing him being active, playing, and the comments he made after the game.

—-

Can you believe this piece of crap, him and his $6.3 million signing bonus.

So basically he’s complaining that he is hurt and needs season ending surgery in Green Bay but now miraculously he’s healthy enough to take Pass from Tom Brady.You gotta wonder if the Packers can’t sue the jerk off for some sort of fraud.

What’s really awful is that the NFL talking heads have collectively decided that this isn’t an important story. I wonder if everyone was told to bury this. Al Michaels: “The ending was ugly in Green Bay” Really Al? That’s it.And Hoodie – this is another huge strike against his character. One wonders if he wasn’t on the phone during the whole thing, from the point of the Rodgers injury on. Ugly indeed.

The POS switched teams five times in 10 years. He spent 4 years in Dallas and 3 in Chicago for cripes sake. What a pedigree! Ted blew it, plain and simple.

This man is a pathological liar, just like his brother.

When he was signed, he made a point of talking about how great a QB that Rodgers is, to the point of saying that Rodgers is the best QB in the game. He doesn’t have allegiance to the Packers- he really doesn’t have allegiance to any team. He signed to play with Rodgers and have a chance for a ring. When Rodgers went down, his reason for playing in Green Bay ended. I would project that if Rodgers had stayed healthy, Bennett would have been an asset to the team.

My Patriots friend told me I was being rediculous getting mad at MB instead of TT. I told him the signing was not a problem, I have never been a fan of Martellus Bennett but the contract was fair considering the entire league thought we were adding another weapon for AR. His attitude, lack of production, embarrassing lack of loyalty, and conniving tendencies were not something anyone saw coming. I have always said in business there are some wild cards you just cannot control, Martellus Bennett is one. He is a lying POS and belongs with a team that is fine with that.

He is a true free agent. A hired gun or a mercenary that makes your team better, but with his own motivations. I don’t believe he’s a POS. I think he convinced himself that when Rodgers went down, his reason for playing here was finished. I think that upset the management of the team, but I suspect, they’ll get back some of the money paid based upon his Facebook comments and the fact that he played in New England even though he told Green Bay that he needed season ending surgery.I’m not against free agency, but it has its pitfalls. Teams that use it extensively suffer in team chemistry. Seldom does their records reflect the outlay in money and resources. Lightly used, it can help the team. We got burned this time. Next time, we might not.

First Terry Glenn and now this. Stop signing exPatriots!

OK fine, he’s a mercenary. But he’s still a POS because the ****** pulled the retirement ploy and then faked an injury to get out of town. He and ‘cheat deserve each other. I’d bet good money they were talking it up since the Rodgers injury. The rest of the league is compliant, but mostly out of wise necessity (who else would sign him after he made it clear he wanted back with the patsies.)

We need what NE has in their water. Bennett is active tonight. Healed already.Bum

This piece of **** is active tonight. What he did to Mr McKenzie is one of the most gutless and cowardly things I have ever seen an athlete do. Trainers don’t go on social media or do interviews (as far as I know). Martellus Liar Bennett went after a guy that can’t defend himself just to blame somebody for the 5th team in his career moving on from him. Not much makes me angry, but my blood boils when a player does something as disgusting as Bennett did. I’m not even going to mention how he always acts like he’s the victim with all of his social activism BS, I’m going after him with what he did to Pat. I hope the remainder of his NFL career ends up terribly because this guy is a loser and by far my most hated Packer. He quit on this team once Rodgers got injured. He was better off giving two middle fingers to the organization and mooning them on the 50 yard line during practice. I was fooled by this guy, I wanted to believe he was going to be a good fit on this team even if he was overpaid. He did have that penalty when he was protecting Rodgers in the Seattle game which I actually appreciated, but looking back on it now it feels like he only cared for Rodgers but nobody else on this team. One of the most despicable things I have seen a player do

Can’t believe he’s active tonight. What a ******* POS, going after Pat saying he was forced to play just to play the very next week after his release. Biggest scumbag ever worn a packer uniform!

I will be shocked if he isn’t struck by lightening someday…..actually he would be the one shocked.

Never wished injury to a player, but I definitely wouldn’t feel a bit sorry, if somebody cracks his shoulder tonight.

Bennett: 3 catches on 3 targets for 38 yards. OK, yeah, he is a bullsh*tter.

he also just admitted that he told every other team NOT to claim him because he was gonna have surgery. explains why the pats were able to claim him

The NFL should be looking into whether the Patriots were talking to Bennett while he was still under contract with the Packers. That would be tampering.

I figured this was just professional courtesy that NFL teams do when another team wants a player. At the same time, it doesn’t surprise me that Bennett lied to every team or that no team would want to touch him except Cheater Bill.

Problem players don’t seem to act up for Belichick because he commands their respect. Bennett apparently played our front office for a bunch of fools.

If they brought more guys to he LOS to stop the run then Brees would kill them over the top.
He’s pretty good vs. the blitz (97.4).

I’m confused. I thought being good against pressure was being good against the blitz. So being good against pressure just means having a free rusher and knowing where to go with the ball (hot read or whatever)?

Coach Bill going for win #271 tomorrow which would pass Tom Landry for 3rd place on the all time win list. Halas is 2nd with 324 and Shula leads with 347. Does Bill have any chance of catching at least Halas? He would need 54 more wins to do that. He would probably need to coach for at least another 3 seasons to catch Halas and at least 5 to catch Shula.

Derby is the 3rd Broncos receiver with more yards, only behind Sanders and Thomas.
But from what i read he is injured in his shoulder, like Marty. I would claim him too, if not for 2017 season, at least for 2018.

They already have their developmental guy in Hollister. If they claim Derby, they have to release a player off the 53. Seems unlikely. Derby is only under contract for one more year. Not much upside in keeping him. And hello Smack

Also.. the Raiders have a good WR in Crabtree, and Amari Cooper (who has underachieved) has the ability to go ham at random. You never know.. this could be a really tough game for the Pats.

Yes, they have two good big receivers, so I hope that Rowe can play, but they will do just fine in any case. Pats win comfortably unless they turn the ball over multiple times.

Also.. I feel like the key to this game is attrition. I think the raiders have the ground-and-pound advantage here, and therefore have the leg-up on paper. Trying to figure out what gameplan the Pats have that will balance offensive production with energy conservation.

DinoScapelli
Editor
Free agent
DinoScapelli

The way the Pats defense has played the last five games, I don’t see Oakland’s run game as a threat. The Pats’ passing game, on the other hand, has an advantage over a weak defense, and if they can strike early – and they will – Oakland’s run game becomes irrelevant, and the big differential in turnover ratio gives a heavy advantage to the Patriots.

NewEnglandBlight
Member
Free agent
NewEnglandBlight

I don’t think passing games will be sustainable at this elevation, at least for two teams that play at sea level. I don’t think you can physically acclimate to that elevation in two weeks– it takes several months to a year of working out before for your VO2 max truly adjusts.

DinoScapelli

Running the ball is just as taxing as passing it, don’t you think? If the receivers get winded, rotate in a new guy. The Pats have depth, especially at RB and TE. The Raiders have much less depth.

NewEnglandBlight
Member

NewEnglandBlight

I think the offensive line will tire more on passing plays than running..

DinoScapelli
Editor

DinoScapelli

I see it the other way entirely! Much more hard work run blocking.

NewEnglandBlight
Member
Free agent
NewEnglandBlight

I recall offensive lineman saying it’s much easier to push forward than to backpedal and prevent a d-lineman from getting to the qb. Run blocking is a simpler motion, you just run straight ahead.. pass blocking requires bending backwards, flexing, being put in awkward positions.

DinoScapelli
Editor
Free agent
DinoScapelli

I think they prefer going forwards and attacking rather than giving ground and relying on technique, but I think the effort is greater run blocking. I could be wrong.

NewEnglandBlight

Lynch isn’t a game breaker.. but man he hurts when he runs the ball.. defensive lines get tired of bringing him down.

I guess, what I’m trying to say, is the key to the game is this: Make the raiders work harder than the Pats on each play. If they do that they’ll tire the raiders out and win the game.

What would you like to hear? The Patriots are good, the Raidizz have been disappointing and have little defense to stop Brady and company. Pats win, ho-hum. 🙂

It is just that you used to like to talk football. it just doesn’t seem that you do as much anymore.

It is not like this week is unimportant and doesn’t have a lot of story lines and this to discuss, like Karras , Gilmore and Connon being out again.

I don’t think the Andrews thing is a big deal at all, and Waddle has played very well the last two games. Gilmore is fine, as long as you don’t ask him to think.

I disagree anytime you lose your center it changes the timing for the rest of the line. Also, often Andrews makes the difference betwen Brady getting sacked or standing.

I think Andrews is one of the most overrated Patriots. Karras will do fine.

You mean one of the few that BB has given a extension to this year?

It’s just as long getting back down to the bottom.

The ONLY appropriate retort to my comment was: If you wanna rock’n’roll.

Let me guess: AC/DC reference?

As often is the case we don’t know what illness is causing Andrews to miss this game but let’s hope it is only one game.

You know Oakland will be attacking Karras and Brady.

For a while there, I thought that Newcastle United had Manchester United on the ropes. I was a fool.
