The Other Paper:
Martellus Bennett has never been one to keep his opinions to himself. Now the one time plus-sized New York Giants tight end revealed his recent success is due to the fact that he's not playing with Tony Romo.
The 6-foot-6 Bennett drooped by Manhattan's Old Homestead Steakhouse the other night with teammate Michael Coe and was overheard telling a waiter that he now has a better quarterback throwing to him, according to Page Six of The New York Post.
"Romo isn't even in the same league as Eli Manning. Not even close," said Bennett, according to the source.
Bennett, who is enjoying a resurgence with Big Blue after a disappointing season with the Dallas Cowboys, already has 15 catches and three touchdowns with Manning at the helm. He had no touchdown catches last year with Romo calling the shots.
Manning's new favorite third-down option came into training camp weighing a whopping 291 pounds but now Bennett looks like Tim Tebow in a Vogue photo spread.
After dishing on Romo and Eli, Bennett was seen signing napkins and receipts for customers at the famous eatery.
They don't call him Mar-Tell us for nothing.

Martellus Bennett has had an excellent start to the season for the Giants.

New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett is attributing his success this season to quarterback Eli Manning.
According to the New York Post, Bennett was overheard telling a waiter at a restaurant that Cowboys quarterback Tony “Romo isn’t in the same league as Eli Manning. Not even close.”
I do believe Romo is a very good quarterback but he isn’t on the same level as Manning...
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...
For every football fan desperate to buy a fresh pair of panties before settling into stadium seat for an NFL game, this is your lucky day.
Always at the forefront of idiocracy, the Dallas Cowboys plan to open a Victoria's Secret "PINK" store at JerryWorld.
As in, in the stadium.
As in, get your peanuts and popcorn and G-strings.
As in, typical Jerry Jones.
TAMPA, Fla. They have corralled Cam Newton and chased down Tony Romo, but the biggest test yet could come Sunday afternoon against a rookie quarterback who has become the talk of the National Football League.

This Monday night, two of the NFL’s most storied franchises will square off when the Chicago Bears come to Dallas to take on the Cowboys. Both teams enter the contest at 2-1, looking to prove to the rest of the league that they have what it takes to be an offensive juggernaut.

The Cowboys, like the Eagles, can be dangerous if they can ever get their act together. Penalties and turnovers are killing them, but the latter typically evens out over time. They rank 2nd in the league in yards per play differential, including 1st in the league in yards per play allowed. Their defense is much better this season and they’ve done...
