Found September 28, 2012 on Fox Sports Southwest:
After not catching a single touchdown pass the previous three seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, Martellus Bennett has snagged three in three games with the New York Giants.Because of Jason Witten, it's unlikely that Bennett was ever going to be the primary pass-catching tight end in Dallas.But according to the outspoken Texas A&M product, his lack of production could have something to do with the quarterback. Apparently, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo isn't on the same elite level as Giants quarterback Eli Manning."Romo isn't in the same league as Eli Manning. Not even close," Bennett was overheard saying at a New York restaurant.According to the New York Post, Bennett made the statement to a waiter while he and teammate Michael Coe were dining at the Old Homestead Steakhouse.Bennett is probably just bitter about underperforming with the Cowboys, something that had little to do with Romo and a lot to do with Bennett dropping passes. On the other hand, Manning does have two Super Bowl rings. Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
