Former Cowboys TE Martellus Bennett Takes Shots at Tony Romo
I don’t think Marty B is really in a position to take shots at anyone, but he was asked a question and he gave an answer.
The answer clearly makes it appear that Bennett thought Tony Romo played favorites with the Cowboys.
According to Bennett, that’s because Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo played favorites with the offense. During an interview with Mike Garofolo of the Newark Star-Ledger, brought to our attention by FOXSportsSouthwest.com, Bennett was asked what made Eli Manning an unselfish quarterback. The answer shed more light on Romo than it did on Manning.
“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. If you’re open, he’s going to hit you. You have to be ready,” Bennett said. “That’s what makes it so fun playing in this offense because anytime you beat your guy, you know you could get the ball. … Every quarterback has one or two guys they go to on most teams. But here, it’s not really like that.”
Ironically that was the same thing Terrell Owens said when he was with the Cowboys, but people just called him crazy and a team wrecker.
Not saying there is any truth to it, but it isn’t the first time it has been mentioned.
