Martellus Bennett hates everybody, especially the Cowboys

Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival After-Party For BENJI, Hosted By Time Warner Cable - 4/20/12 Getty Images

Giants tight end Martellus Bennett arrived at the first day of training camp and immediately launched into a tirade about his former team, the Cowboys.

I just want to kick those guys’ asses. That’s what it’s all about. We’re cool but we ain’t that cool,” Bennett told the New York Post. “I’ve kind of got some ill feelings toward them overall. But it’s a game. Every game is the same where I kind of hate everybody, honestly, in the NFL.”

I’m not sure how healthy it is to go through life hating everybody, but Bennett says he does.

“I have ill feelings toward everybody. It’s not just Dallas,” he said. “[Shoot], pretty much anybody who doesn’t play with us, I pretty much, I don’t like ‘em. I don’t like a lot of people. I’m kind of [a jerk], but it’s cool.”

Bennett is so eager to channel his hatred toward a great season that he said he wishes training camp could have started sooner.

“Super excited to play football. Couldn’t sleep last night because I got so excited,” he said. “I almost drove down here in the middle of the night but the wife told me I couldn’t.”

The good news for Bennett is that he won’t have to wait much longer. The Giants’ season-opening meeting with the Cowboys is now less than six weeks away.

    I doubt this guy works out for the Giants. To me, Eli and the Giants want their tightends to be fighters, this guy is a paper lion and a joke.

  2. rc33 says: Jul 26, 2012 12:43 PM

    Has this guy accomplished anything in his career?

  3. lifetimeskinsfan739 says: Jul 26, 2012 12:44 PM

    I think the ill feeling may be mutual. Since they did waste a high draft pick on you.

  4. 49erstim says: Jul 26, 2012 12:45 PM

    Who? My first Google search for Martellus Bennett came up with zilch so I searched for “Receiving Tight Ends with horrible hands” and was able to find something.. Apparently he used to play in Dallas….for years! I wonder if any of them know who he is.

  5. thekiller678 says: Jul 26, 2012 12:45 PM

    Wasn’t he suppose to be the next Witten? Hopefully Eli and co. can make the most out of this guy.

  6. spharrgcs says: Jul 26, 2012 12:46 PM

    Useless, lazy gigantic waste of talent. He dropped more easy passes then can be counted. Loudmouth blowhard – poor man’s Jeremy Shockey. That head of his better be on a swivel if he tries going across the middle for game 1. He’s feelings of ill-will towards Dallas are reciprocated.

  7. pnut87 says: Jul 26, 2012 12:46 PM

    If it gets him to play well, he can hate whoever he wants.

  8. h8trsgonnah8 says: Jul 26, 2012 12:47 PM

    If this chump had have the drive as he does potential he Dallas would have never let him walk. All the talent in the world, none of the determination it takes to be great. What a waste of talent. Enjoy the headache Giants.

    Trust me, Marty B. The Cowboys organization has ill feelings towards you too for the cap space you have robbed them of the last few years. Keep threatening to have a breakout season though.

  10. waussau says: Jul 26, 2012 12:47 PM

    The feeling is mutual.

  11. foul83 says: Jul 26, 2012 12:47 PM

    Ha ha ha. That’s awesome.

    I hate walking through a spider web. That’s what I hate.

  12. cowboyscanada says: Jul 26, 2012 12:49 PM

    This guy didnt make it in Dallas because he is a head case. He is not self motivated, and quite frankly, not too smart. Good luck Giants, I’m glad he’s your problem now!

  13. daysend564 says: Jul 26, 2012 12:51 PM

    Cowboys made a mistake with you. They didn’t ship you to Cincinnati when you still had value.

  14. billsfan1 says: Jul 26, 2012 12:54 PM

    I hate when pseudo football players talk so much

  15. angrycorgi says: Jul 26, 2012 1:01 PM

    If any of you are not too familiar with Mr. Bennett then do a search on youtube for “MartyB”. That will tell you everything you need to know about this clown.

    Some people get pestered and yelled at to clean their room, learn their multiplication tables, and eat their vegetables only to grow up and thank their teachers, parents, etc for teaching them to be better and how to make the most of themselves.

    Other people grow up to be Martellus Bennett. I don’t know what he’s mad about. The Cowboys gave him money infinite attention and 4 years of opportunities.

  17. geo91 says: Jul 26, 2012 1:15 PM

    His hate might create some 15 yard personal fouls when they play, if I’m a cowboy I’ll remember this, maybe give his nuts a tug at the bottom of a pile and see where it goes!

  18. hummer53 says: Jul 26, 2012 1:28 PM

    Put down the hater-aide dude.

  19. kacapaco says: Jul 26, 2012 1:29 PM

    He is talking too much. Somebody tell him he signed for Giants not Jets.

  20. endjerrysreign says: Jul 26, 2012 1:29 PM

    I’d like to say I have ill feelings toward Marty B but it’s not nice to hate on the mentally challenged.

    Wonder if ballooning up to 290lbs this offseason was part of this new super excitement and dedication to actually taking football seriously?

  21. thebigcaptain2011 says: Jul 26, 2012 1:31 PM

    He won’t be a “problem” for the Giants. The Giants have established, credible leadership that will get the most out of him. He will do his job or he will be cut, simple as that. The Giants don’t screw around with guys that slap up their mom or use cheerleaders pom poms as props. They do not play around up there. This is a very calculated risk that will likely pay off with the worst case scenario being he costs a very wealthy orginazation a couple million dollars. Keep thinking in your small minds that Coach will allow him to be a problem up there. NO! TC and Jerry Reese work together on the roster and make the decisions. Not a meddling owner who is more interested in putting on a show than winning football games these last 15 or so years….

  22. spharrgcs says: Jul 26, 2012 1:36 PM

    Even Kellen Winslow II thinks this guy is an idiot.

  23. dragus84 says: Jul 26, 2012 1:37 PM

    Pardon?

    You better get to work Martellus. Because with the work ethic (or lack there of) that you showed in Dallas and the inability to catch a pass, you may end up hating yourself for slacking your way right out of a job.

    I don’t imagine the giants will put up with your laziness and piss poor attitude for very long.

    This guy had a boat load of potential that never amounted to anything and I’m very doubtful that will change in New York.

  24. mancave001 says: Jul 26, 2012 1:41 PM

    See you at the Linc, chump. We have a few guys we’d like you to meet. Their names are Mr. Babin, Mr. Cole, Mr. Cox and Mr. Ryans. Enjoy.

  25. chazzmon says: Jul 26, 2012 1:44 PM

    Earlier reports had him at 295 lbs. Unless he’s gotten into shape or decided to switch positions to Tackle I think he’ll be a trivia question soon.

  26. blackfoot11 says: Jul 26, 2012 1:48 PM

    This guy was a bust for the Cowboys because he is lazy, unmotivated, and has a clear attitude issue. Remember the ’08 Hard Knocks where coaches and players were constantly trying to motivate the guy. I dont understand why Jerr’a keeps drafting basket cases that end of being off the roster by the end of their rookie deals. Dez is the next to go, just a matter of time.

  27. surferbum01 says: Jul 26, 2012 1:52 PM

    I’m not even a Cowboys fan but used to live in the area around Dallas and even I remember how much of an idiotic d-bag this guy is. He was always an All-Pro pre-season player but when it comes to the season he’s like David Copperfield and just disappears.

  28. upperdecker19 says: Jul 26, 2012 2:03 PM

    With “Gronk TV” on hold…..this sounds like a perfect spinoff to “Everyone Loves Raymond” for the NBC fall lineup.

  29. vikinganswer says: Jul 26, 2012 2:07 PM

    Feelings probably mutual for this atheletic waste of talent.

  30. drobstad says: Jul 26, 2012 2:10 PM

    I really hope this guy works out for the G-Men but I highly doubt he will because he seems like such a clown. We got rid of Jacobs so I thought the shenanigans would cease… Guess Bennett wants to take over that role now

  31. hcat44 says: Jul 26, 2012 2:20 PM

    I hated everyone in Dallas, except Roy Williams…..yeah I always giggled inside whenever Roy dropped his passes…..yeah I miss Roy

  32. howiehandles says: Jul 26, 2012 2:36 PM

    Underachiever, with a big mouth, and apparently no idea what even he’s talking about. Even the Cowboys got sick of this clown.

  33. trollaikman8 says: Jul 26, 2012 2:37 PM

    He also hates offseason weight programs.

  34. jgedgar70 says: Jul 26, 2012 2:40 PM

    Wow, so much anger there. How did he propose to his wife? “Honey, I hate you less than anyone else on Earth. Will you marry me?”

    Hey man, I have a few words for you: Zoloft. Prozac. Lexapro. Paxil. See a doctor. Ask for one.

  35. tailgatersanimal says: Jul 26, 2012 2:52 PM

    He’ll have the chance twice a year

  36. burnzido says: Jul 26, 2012 3:03 PM

    Ha! I hate em too Marty! I hope you beat the Cowboys into the ground….and then loose to the Redskins! HTTR

  37. evilfhud says: Jul 26, 2012 3:10 PM

    Right-on Martellus….I hate everyone too! Especially talented tight-ends, with wing spans as big as airplanes that run lazy patterns and block like Matadors.

  38. painsyndicate says: Jul 26, 2012 3:29 PM

    Lot of mouth from a guy who averages 21 receptions and 1 touchdown per year.

    Can you say Lawrence Taylor,Plaxico,ect…

  40. Mr. Wright 212 says: Jul 26, 2012 3:51 PM

    Dallas fans are gonna be sour when he aids in a beatdown on the 5th.

  41. mustyoldclapptrap says: Jul 26, 2012 3:58 PM

    Question from a cowboys fan…

    Many of you can’t stand the Cowboys. Marty-B was a cowboy, but wasn’t good enough for a pretty bad Cowboys team to want to bring him back. Now he hates the Cowboys.

    If you hate the Cowboys, do you love Marty B because he hates the Cowboys, or hate him more because he wasn’t even good enough to remain a Cowboy?

    How does the hate flow?

  42. rcali says: Jul 26, 2012 4:05 PM

    Do neck tatoos make you extra angry?

  43. daysend564 says: Jul 26, 2012 4:18 PM

    Marty B has been showing his hatred of the Cowboys with his play for years.

  44. alewinsk says: Jul 26, 2012 5:01 PM

    Mamma always said…..

    It’s alright to go around thinking one or two people are full of it.

    But if it gets to a point where you think everyone is full of it, then you’re just probably smelling yourself.

  45. gpete1962 says: Jul 26, 2012 8:00 PM

    “COME ON BENNET, LETS PARTY!!!”

  46. dexxx58 says: Jul 27, 2012 12:34 PM

    Sounds like sour grapes due to his own inability to progress in the Cowboy’s scheme of things to me. I was a Martellus fan when he was in big D and I wish him luck with his new employer in the big apple.

  47. ericn42000 says: Jul 28, 2012 6:31 PM

    Bennett is hot garbage he cant even be payed to make a catch……#BUTTERFINGERS
