Michael Bennett’s sack dance may not be ready for prime time

When the Seahawks take on the Broncos in New Jersey eight days from now, Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett possibly will sack Peyton Manning.  If Bennett, who has 10 total sacks in the 2013 regular season and postseason, can get to Manning, Bennett likely will break out a sack dance that may not be appropriate for young eyes.

Via Jayson Jenks of the Seattle Times, Bennett describes his hand-behind-the-head-gyrating-hips maneuver as “two angels dancing while chocolate is coming from the heavens on a nice Sunday morning.”

Whatever it is, safety Earl Thomas won’t let his daughter watch it.

“I make her turn her head,” Thomas told Jenks.

The dance has evolved throughout the season, and Bennett could have even more tweaks in store for the Super Bowl.

“I think America is ready,” Bennett said.  “Maybe I can get on Dancing With the Stars afterward.”

It’s far more likely that Bennett, who took a below-market one-year deal to join Seattle, will be cashing in with a long-term deal, from the Seahawks or someone else.  The more he dances on February 2, the more likely that will be.

    The seahawks are the most pathetic franchise in the nfl.They are inferior to the great Minnesota VIKINGS.

    “Dance Ballerina, Dance……….”

    Instead of game planning and keeping their mouth shut they are thinking about dancing, what a joke. Good luck getting through that O-Line, i don’t think this game will be close. And what is with that go hawks sign off, that is just too lame.

    Even the recent Steelers Super Bowl teams weren’t as unlikable as these jerks from Seattle.

    Sack dances have been getting more and more sexually suggestive. Goodell and the girls need to get on the ball and eject these immature moves when they happen. But it’s a punk man’s game now and they’ve let it happen. Football was a family game to watch on tv. Now it’s “Showtime with the Package”.

    Cue all the enablers saying it’s okay because Bennett is an emotional player, etc.

    Yeah, no Mr. Black Unicorn. That won’t go over in a Bears uniform. That attitude seems to be more of a fit in Seattle.. Thanks for the idea, though.

    Your teams are out.

    Shut up.

    Michael Bennett is the man. On a team with 5 of 6 excellent d-lineman he may be the best of the bunch. To the fan that trying to get angry over media bringing up the dance, stop reading Seahawks news if it bothers you so much. Go throw on some 1950 Baltimore Colts tape if that’s your cup of tea because next year this team will be going for another deep run and hopefully the year after that as well. Go Hawks!

    It’s almost like Seattle isn’t tight.

    Huh

    Pressure’s on Manning.

    So heading into the biggest game in his life, he is thinking about sack dances…SMH.

    Seahawk haters are so irritating. They should crawl back into their caves where they can’t bother anybody.
    GO HAWKS!!!

    Best defense in the last 10 yrs

    I’m not a Hawks fan. In fact I hate them. But I never took this to mean he’s thinking of dances. You know, since he only has the one. More like he’s thinking about sacking the QB. You know, his job.

    I am a Giants fan who is pulling for Seattle. I got a few sons on that team, been riding with them to win it all since preseason, and hope they get it done.

    Those who are grasping at straws to contrive ways that Denver is supposedly going to do this or that look pretty silly. Even the paltry Colts held Denver’s receivers in check, and only had one pass rusher.

    “I think America is ready,” Bennett said.

    I know of one American who is not.

  21. DrSteveBrule says: Jan 25, 2014 10:26 PM

    So what if he’s thinking about his sack dance. The game isn’t for another week you doofus.

    For your health.

    Love how PFT is trying the get the anti-Seattle crowd all riled up. Guess they need some new material to work with now that this whole Sherman fiasco is somewhat dying down.

    Is he aware he plays in front of a mostly male audience?
