Found July 04, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
After spending four unproductive (yet controversial) years with the Cowboys, Martellus Bennett signed with the Giants in March. And now the tight end appears to already be criticizing his former quarterback, Tony Romo. In an interview with Newark’s The Star-Ledger, Bennett made comments that could be interpreted as taking a dig at Romo, suggesting the Cowboys quarterback played favorites when looking for receivers. (It wouldn’t be the first time Bennett has been derisive of Romo.) The remarks came as Bennett was praising his new QB BFF Eli Manning. “Oh man, I don’t think there’s a better quarterback than him in the NFL right now,” Bennett said of Manning. “Watching his approach to the game and the way he coaches everybody up and gets everybody involved, I think he’s an unselfish quarterback, which is what you want. He throws a very catchable ball, which is always awesome. He’s a great guy, a great quarterback.” When asked to elaborate on Manning being “unselfis...

Bennett feels Romo was playing favorites

Now that he's no longer second fiddle to Jason Witten, former Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett apparently thinks Tony Romo is playing out of tune. Bennett, now with the New York Giants, had nothing but praise for his new quarterback, Eli Manning, in a recent interview on the Newark Star-Ledger's website, nj.com. But in doing so, he took an indirect shot at Romo and his...

Martellus Bennett takes a jab at Tony Romo

New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett told Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger that he really likes playing with Eli Manning because he doesn’t show favoritism when throwing the football, like most quarterbacks do. “Just his approach. I mean, he’s just looking for the open guy. It doesn’t matter who it is or what number you are,” said Bennett.  ”If you’re...

Tony Romo vs. Eli Manning, It’s not all about the stats

Here we go again! It’s time for Tony Romo vs. Eli Manning. The experts like Ron Jaworski have Romo ranked as the 10th best QB in the NFL. He has not ranked the top five yet, but Manning will do no worse than number five on his list. The NFLN recently completed their list of the top 100 players as voted by the players and Romo is ranked 91st and Manning is ranked 31st. What...

Amani Toomer: Romo better than Eli

Know how to get under the skin of any New York Giants fan real fast? Tell them that Tony Romo is better than Eli Manning. That might be a common opinion coming from a Cowboys fan, but for one of the Giants' all-time great receivers to voice that opinion...that is unacceptable. But those are the exact thoughts expressed this week by former Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer...

Amani Toomer: Tony Romo is probably a better quarterback than Eli Manning

Prior to last season, there were probably a number of people who believed that Tony Romo was a better quarterback than Eli Manning. Now, that population is nearing extinction. Manning is a two-time Super Bowl MVP and Romo has won one playoff game in his career. Last season, Eli led more fourth-quarter comebacks than anyone in the league and lit up the stat sheet in the process. Despite...

Morning Huddle - Romo better than Manning?

This is why I'd take Manning over Romo in a heartbeat. Anytime someone talks about Tony Romo as an elite quarterback, I tend to cringe a little and walk away. Every now and then, someone like Amani Toomer compares Romo to another established quarterback, in this case Eli Manning, and says Romo is the better quarterback. From a purely numbers perspective, Tony Romo is a very...

Amani Toomer believes Tony Romo is better then Eli Manning

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, while appearing on Sirius XM NFL Radio, former New York Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer said that Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is better than Eli Manning. Either Amani Toomer has gone insane now that he’s retired, or he’s trying to be unbiased now that he’s a part of the media. He could also want to be like ESPN’s Skip Bayless. I...

Toomer: Romo is better than Eli

Hard to believe that we are only 4 weeks away from the start of training camp, and it was during last years preseason that New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning referred to himself as an elite QB.  Now, former teammate and Giant Amani Toomer is saying that Eli isn’t even the best QB in his division. He says that honor belongs to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. “Tony...

Co-Hosting on Sirius XM NFL Radio’s Movin’ the Chains Thursday afternoon, former Giants WR Amani Toomer and Host Tim Ryan took a call from a fan asking who they thought would win the NFC East.

Amani Toomer: Romo is 'best quarterback in NFC East'

Amani Toomer can expect to get a lot of boos the next time he steps foot in MetLife Stadium this season— big time.
