Found September 29, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
Martellus Bennett has had an excellent start to the season for the Giants. The tight end has caught a touchdown in each of the Giants’ first three games, and he’s quickly putting together what will likely be the best season of his career. The outspoken tight end reportedly attributes his success to playing with a better quarterback. The New York Post reports that Bennett was overheard talking with a teammate at dinner and saying that “Tony Romo isn’t in the same league as Eli Manning. Not even close.” We don’t ordinarily give attention to such loosely-sourced items, but Bennett was quoted expressing a similar sentiment in July. If he indeed said Manning was in a different league from Romo, it would make sense; he hadn’t scored a touchdown with the Cowboys since 2008, but he’s scored in three straight games with the Giants.

Not even close.” I do believe Romo is a very good quarterback but he isn’t on the same level as Manning...

Buy Vick, sell Griffin III

Kendall: TE Martellus Bennett or Owen Daniels in Week 4? Given his proneness for bonehead-like behavior, I thought Bennett would be a disaster for the Giants. The theory was sound: yes, Eli Manning likes to utilize his tight ends, but if Jerry Jones, an owner who has seen his share of immature and imprudent conduct, thought the Texas A&M product was detrimental to his team...
