Bennett has colorful adjectives for Matthews, low block that caused knee injury

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett left Sunday’s game in the third quarter with a knee injury.

Bennett was injured after being cut-blocked by Falcons offensive tackle Jake Matthews, and Bennett wasn’t happy about it.

After the game, Bennett told reporters that Matthews diving at him was “a scary b-tch ass move” and said, “If you have to dive at someone else’s leg, you are a little b-tch.”

It appeared that Matthews’ helmet hit Bennett squarely on the left knee before Matthews rolled to the ground. Bennett was helped off the field and didn’t return.

    If you can’t beat em, cripple em. The mantra of loser organizations.

    It happens way too often. Burfict tried to injure Bennett of the Pats today in the same manner.

  3. skol4life says: Oct 16, 2016 9:16 PM

    Should have chopped him in the mouth instead.

    Bennett brothers have become a nuisance in the NFL.
    Kids look up to y’all.

    It was dirty

    Both Bennett’s got cheap-shotted today. Must have been the E:60 or something.

  8. tmcb7 says: Oct 16, 2016 9:28 PM

    the funny thing about this is… Bennett actually believes cut blocking doesn’t go on in the NFL.
    Happens on every play my friend. Especially on an end when it’s a quick slant or out route… the tackle cuts the player on the end, period.
    Stop being a bitch, it was bad luck your cleat caught and hyper extended your knee.

    “Both Bennett’s got cheap-shotted today. Must have been the E:60 or something.”

    I’m checking Cutler’s and Witten’s bank accounts for large cash transfers this past week

    Legal cut block, Seattle’s offense was using the exact same techniques. Nothing to see here.

  11. olyhawk says: Oct 16, 2016 9:38 PM

    Or Bennett knows dirty plays do go on in the trenches, while your at home on your couch, telling him to man up…

    Did Matthews ever play for Greg Williams?

    Denver is dirtiest team in league, this is just the copycat thing teams do.

  17. mongo3401 says: Oct 16, 2016 9:53 PM

    Cut blocks are not illegal one on one.

  18. 6kings says: Oct 16, 2016 9:58 PM

    Part of the skill of playing DE is understanding when they are cutting you…oops.

  19. DitkasHair says: Oct 16, 2016 10:02 PM

    The Bennett Brothers get no sympathy from me….they can’t keep their mouth shut long enough to engage as a Human Being.

  21. amaf21 says: Oct 16, 2016 10:22 PM

    Those two idiots should stop running their blabber mouths. Coincidence that both were cheap shotted today? I think not.

  22. nords14 says: Oct 16, 2016 10:22 PM

    For all the Falcs fans why aren’t you cryin that there wasn’t a flag thrown on that one? Karmas a ……

    Best hit all day

    Whining, bitching, crying, self victimization–yup, this guy is a 100% Trump supporter.

    Yep, now Bennett and BLM support Trump. I’m guessing 22 in moms basement with no job?

  27. atldirtybird1 says: Oct 16, 2016 10:45 PM

    nords14…… I would have cried if there was a flag thrown on that block . The play was super legal. Its called a “cut” block and ran by every team in the NFL For it to be illegal Bennett would have had to have been engaged with a blocker and then a second blocker takes his legs out while being engaged with the original blocker. That is a “chop” block and is illegal.

    learned it from Clay.

    Karma caught up to bennett for his outspoken support for the national anthem kneelers.

  32. jumboli says: Oct 17, 2016 12:08 AM

    Excellent play. Excellent outcome. Wipe your tears little girl. It’s the NFL!

  33. theroc5156 says: Oct 17, 2016 12:30 AM

    Burfict didn’t make contact with Martellus Bennett’s knee. It was a questionable move by Burfict considering his past, but, even Fouts said that Brady’s pump fake to Bennett caused Burfict to dive at Bennett.

  34. jayhawk777 says: Oct 17, 2016 12:34 AM

    Falcons are dirty cheaters.

    Try to injure the Hawks best DL who was hitting Ryan play after play.

    Falcons had 1 great qtr. 80 yds in the 1H hurt them. Hawks owned qtr 1,2,4.

  35. mutantman87 says: Oct 17, 2016 3:18 AM

    No wonder the defense started to flag in the second half.

  36. pastabelly says: Oct 17, 2016 4:24 AM

    There is no excuse to try to injure another player. It’s cheap and its mean. In this case, it’s a coincidence. Burfict is just a dirty player and that’s what he does. The Bengals also went after Gronkowski. The Matthews hit just happened and had nothing to do with the E:60 show. The Bennetts aren’t bad guys or dirty players. They just have big mouths.

  37. scotthochsdramaticweightgain1 says: Oct 17, 2016 5:44 AM

    Look on the bright side, now he can join BLM and flap his gums even more.

  38. wnstonchill says: Oct 17, 2016 6:30 AM

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy……

  39. RegisHawk says: Oct 17, 2016 8:21 AM

    What would you expect from a team known as the “Dirty Birds”?

  40. timothy131 says: Oct 17, 2016 10:45 AM

    seattle is having to resort to crying to get an advantage.Bennet deserved it.He was cutting Ryan down after the whistle on multiple occasions so karmas a beyoch

  41. jmethane says: Oct 17, 2016 12:11 PM

    Who is Michael Bennett?
    ——

    Hey brand new fan how are you doing? This comment makes you look ignorant. Michael Bennett is a top 5 defensive lineman in the NFL and has been for a few years now.

  42. dbwsea says: Oct 19, 2016 10:22 AM

    Lots of comments sounding like both Bennetts deserve to be injured.
    Wow, lotsa angry jerks today.
