Michael Bennett dubs Tom Brady a cheater

Colts players wisely are walking on eggshells when it comes to using the “C” word for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, since Brady is due to return when the Patriots come to Indy in Week Six. Players on teams that don’t face New England this year and/or didn’t instigate #DeflateGate don’t have to be as careful.

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett had this to say when asked by TMZ whether he considers Brady a cheater:  “Yes.”

Bennett, who seemed barely interested in talking while waiting for his luggage at an airport and repeatedly checking his phone, acknowledged that there was no cheating in Super Bowl XLIX, that the Patriots blew out the Colts in the AFC title game regardless of any cheating, but that Brady “cheated that one game.”

Bennett also said he believes the four-game suspension of Brady will be upheld.

The discussion then became far more sophisticated, with Bennett explaining that his favorite actor is Leonardo DiCaprio, and that his favorite DiCaprio movie is What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?

And then Bennett described the movie to TMZ with an term that one was commonly used but that now is widely regarded as offensive.

  1. It’s clear when you break down The Deflatriots fumbles per snap and Brady’s QB rating from 2000-2006 and then from 2007-2014 after the rules were changed, that they were doing this for far more than one game. In fact, it’s been going on for at least 7 years.

  2. Please. Maybe Bennett and the now defunct LOB should have given up less points in the Super Bowl with 13 PSI balls. 28 points, 14 in crunch time, and if Brady hadn’t sneezed on that throw early in the game it would have been 35 points against the “best defense of the past 10 years.”

  3. Everybody in America knows Brady is a cheater. Even Patriots fans know it.
    The difference is that the Patriot fans, like Brady and Kraft refuse to admit it.
    That is a very definitive line between class and no class.

  4. Richard Sherman used/uses PEDs, he got off on a technicality. They only test you once in the offseason if you are not in the program. I believe they are on something. Every team cheats but as the saying goes ” it ain’t cheating unless you are caught”.

  5. Holding 9 out of 10 plays and breaking players ankles on questionable hits does count as cheating/gamesmanship. Lazy Eye has spoken.

  6. PEDhawks, nice. Had forgotten about these guys. Any updates on what the Topeka little league teams think about Brady?

  7. He is a cheater along with Belichic and Kraft – period. Belichic needs to go down with the deflategate ship too. It’s not right that he be held to separate standards as Payton. Per Goodells statements “not knowing” isn’t an acceptable excuse for an NFL head coach. Why is he getting away with this too?

  8. Difference between the Seahawks & Colts. Colts are afraid of the Pats, Seahawks are not. But he isn’t wrong. All he said was that Brady cheated that one game. Which, at a minimum, he did.

  9. “Michael Bennett jumps offsides more than anybody in the league, and here in the most crucial moment, he does it again”

    -Chris Collinsworth, Super Bowl 49

  10. SUPER BOWL CHAMPS!!!! That is not going to change?

    So what is going to happen if Brady goes out and puts up crazy numbers and ends up winning MVP? Or when the Pats go back to the Superbowl and Brady wins another Superbowl MVP?

    Will the NFL take steps to prevent the Pats from having success this season?

  11. soon enough we will find out how many players are on ped’s or hgh so players should be watching who they are calling cheaters.

  12. I found it funny that the 4 letter network would only ask former teammates of Brady about what they think of him. Of course they would all say that he’s a saint.

    Ask the general public what they think

  13. Tell Bennett to check the last Super Bowl score board

    And tell everyone else to check the Patriots for cheating…

  14. Check all the Seahawks urine while you’re at it. None of you care about integrity, you just hate the pats because they beat your favorite team. Crybabies

  15. Keep flapping your gums about Brady he’s still gonna keep on winning games like he has since 2001 … Nothing is gonna change
    😗💨💨💨

  16. Things ppl will say that are ill informed here:
    Torched the Seattle defense–torched mostly banged up secondary, picking on back up…he did do well, but this wasn’t a normal Seattle defense

    Seahawks did HGH-yes, they’re cheating too. Your point? Brady’s even worse for doctoring balls for years and somehow getting away w it

    Still would wreck the colts–yeah but he also cheated against the ravens and most likely for years, he’s a cheater and the Super Bowl will forever be tainted…patriots fans know it and still try to hard to fight it

  17. Patriot fans are babies. He said there was no cheating in the Super Bowl but the Patriots did cheat to get there, that is completely the truth. Unless all the Colt balls stayed a the correct PSI and 11 of the Patriot balls deflated themselves between the start of the game and half time.

    Patriots Super Bowl are tainted in the eyes of the public. Tom Brady = Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, Lance Armstrong. Legacy is in question long into retirement.

  18. The Patriots winning the Superbowl was awesome. The Seahawks losing the Superbowl made it even more awesome.

  19. Pretty sure the footballs were inflated in the Super Bowl..they lost fair and square

  20. I’m sick of Bennett. Hoping we trade him soon. Zero sacks all playoffs. Jumps off sides constantly, and at the worst times -see super bowl. Then he always complains about money. Now he’s talking trash after losing straight up.scrub. shut your mouth

  21. LOVE it when people read only the headline and then post comments… makes them ridiculous.

    Try again, folks. If anything, he toned down the cheating rhetoric… doing the Patriots a favor by saying he didn’t cheat or it didn’t matter if he did.

    But no, go ahead and keep reading what you want to hear, because that makes much more sense.

  22. So are we really going to be subjected to everybody’s opinion of this stupid issue now? It’s over. Can we move on yet? If not, can we please hear what the rest of the Seahawks feel? The rest of the Patriots? Heck, didn’t Pete Carroll coach the Pats? What’s he think?

  23. Pattrash cheat, get a slap on the wrist. This is much worse than betting, PEDs or any OFF field conduct except Patriot Henandez’ murders. Should have been a year or better yet LIFETIME ban.

  24. Who says the patriots didnt cheat in the super bowl? Why was Edelman not taken out of the game after his obvious concussion?Why were Lane and Avril targeted for dirty plays? Seattle essentially won that game despite massive amounts of injuries prior to and during that game. SB49 has just as big an asterisk as all the others, don’t let anyone tell you different. Couldn’t be prouder to be a Seahawks fan, we do things the right way….future couldn’t be brighter.

  25. If you asked the NFL players in a secret poll the percentage that would give that same answer would likely be very high. In public, the player may waiver a bit and only those that are not afraid of the Patriots/Brady will actually answer.

  26. Bennet needs to thank himself for jumping offside numerous times lol… He was a big reason the pats won that game!! That Seattle D was overrated and it starts with this guy! Thx Bennett for that 4th ring

  27. Hey most Players Cheat one way or another.
    Cheating was never a problem when I played.
    It made the game much better for myself, or you can say added more fun. That why the Ref’s are there…….
    The problem is if someone call you on it.
    Man up!!! no big deal. Don’t be a Lance!!!
    Brady is going to be a Nerf spokesman if he keeps it up. He’s turning himself into a joke!!!
    And Yes I will say that to his face.

  28. Every year, the team that won the superbowl cheated in some way through out the year. 31 other teams also cheated at some point through out the year but did not win the superbowl. The only irony from this exchange is that the Seahawks are well known cheaters because beyond just the PED’s they also cheat during the games, on camera, for the whole world to see.

    Sour grapes from the most penalized d lineman for off sides in the NFL …….And a couple on the biggest stage of all…..funny how that works…..
    ___

    Hate to explain this to you but being penalized isn’t cheating. That is actually the game. And he is hardly penalized for being dirty, so you can take that off the table too. Your team is dirty, they cheat, and their legacy is stained everywhere except Boston – which apparently now prides itself on winning at all cost where it once was the bastion of ideals and integrity. You stain the whole legacy.

  30. Enjoy the Super Bowl win New England Cheetos. It will be the LAST Super Bowl you will be in for a long long time.

  31. Brady is and always been a cry baby cheater. I’ve hated him since he took over for Drew Bledsoe and probably before if i would have known about him. He’s a tool. See tuck rule and previous cheating scandal. The seahawks get in trouble for smoking weed not PEDs. And yes Bennett needs to stay on sides. I wanted to rip his face off for going offsides in the super bowl. But people come on the seahawks are a great team. With a great leader. Everyone forgets how amazing Russell is. You’re all just mad the Seahawks got great and everyone else is losing a step

  32. Please cite any instances of PED use in the last year…or admit you’ll say anything to deflect from your boy’s cheatin’ ways.

  33. Hard to take this seriously when the guy who started a fight on the field after he lost the game says it. The fact is, the balls were not tampered with in the super bowl and if 1psi is cheating then bruce irvin and richard sherman shouldn’t be allowed to compete either. Rules are rules, right hawk fans?

  34. It’s “more probable than not” that the Seahawks players are on peds, which has more of an effect on the game. The fumble argument has been disproved.

  35. Anyone outside of New England have already labeled them cheaters anyway. If the Seahawks won it this year, people would feel the same way about them. The Patriots are hated, anyone that says they win only because of deflated balls and says their SB win(s) is tainted, needs professional help. Just like everyone hated the Heat w/Lebron, they hate the Pats w/Brady. The fact is, Brady is actually a good guy and does good things for people. There are actually good people out there that play professional sports!

  36. Being offsides and not penalized for it is CHEATING .

    Every Team cheats on every game.

    Ever player cheats every year.

    Every time you go just 1 mph over the speed limit, you cheated.

    Wake up to reality, we are all a bunch of cheaters.

    Goodell is just plain STUPID or CORRUPT.

  37. Boy not sure which is worse, the fact a know dog abuser like Bennett has guts to call out anyone for anything, let alone something as dumb as fooball PSI…or all the dummies on here backing him up and defending him. Say what you want about the Patriots, but Seahawks should be ashamed to employ a know dog abuser like Bennett.

    Do your homework. The study used numbers and ommitted certain others to superinflate the results and has been debunked.

    if you were more truthful you’d note that the Seattle Defense was depleted due to injury BEFORE the SB, and further depleted by injury to 2 significant defensive players in the first half of the SB.

    Trying to bend the truth to create a narrative to suit the story you’re attempting to manufacture almost seems like, and dare I say it, CHEATING

  40. One claim Seattle can make about SB49, that the Pat’s can’t make, is it’s a FACT Seattle didn’t cheat to get to SB49.

    Make that claim New England! The most lying and cheating franchise in today’s NFL. Brady should be sitting out for the entire year, minimum, and Pat’s fans and their franchise are so arrogant are whining about a measly 4 games. Karma will no doubt pay NE a visit this year…it’s how Karma works…

  41. So, nothing…or in other words, a lot of attempts to change the subject or distract from the fact that Brady is a cheater. As expected.

  42. Newsflash: The Patriots have won more than any other team since Tom Brady came along. He, and the Patriots, have been fantastic FOR A LONG, LONG TIME.

    Result: Other teams don’t like that very much.

    Moral of the story: You can create, devise or conjur ANY reasons for the above that don’t have anything to do with that fact (they fumble less than worse teams? Shocker!), but it still won’t ease the pain of your habitual losing. We just simply added Seattle to the long list of “if only we could have (fill in excuse here)” teams.

    Well my good man the Colts balls didn’t stay above the correct psi(3 of 4 tested were below 12.5) and 11 Pats balls didn’t deflate more than science would explain, so there’s that.
