Michael Bennett Called Jay Cutler The Worst Quarterback In The NFL

For some reason ESPN did a piece on Michael and Martellus Bennett.  The brothers weren't shy about sharing their opinions on several players in the NFL.  That includes their insane thought on quarterbacks Jay Cutler, Sam Bradford and Eli Manning.

Michael, who isn't the tight end that played with Jay, called Jay Cutler, "the worst quarterback in the NFL."  More insane than tha comment was the brothers saying Sam Bradford was, "the greatest quarterback in the NFL."

I guess we have our answer to the question of why ESPN did a piece on them.  They didn't keep their opinions focused on the quarterback position.  They spread the love around, with Michael calling Roger Goodell an asshole.

He's not wrong about that one.  I'm not sure about the other opinions, via ESPN:

I ask Michael, who's famously critical of the league's overpaid passers, what he thinks of Jay Cutler.
"Worst quarterback in the NFL," he says.
"I'd be open and he'd throw into double coverage," says Martellus, who spent the past three seasons as Cutler's teammate in Chicago.
If there's an unspoken rule in the NFL against roasting other players, the Bennetts break it every day. What follows is a non-comprehensive list of their takes on various figures in football:
Martellus: "Eli? He's cool. He's like a normal white guy you see at the park trying to teach his kids how to play soccer and you know he can't really play soccer himself."
Martellus: "If a QB went 7 -- 9, he'd never be able to find a job."
Michael: "Make sure he's in the NFC West."
Michael: "I've got more sacks than he's got touchdowns." (This is accurate.)
Martellus: "I've caught more balls than he's completed." (Also accurate.)
Martellus: "Joel Osteen."
Michael: "Tom Cruise. I feel like Pete Carroll is like Benjamin Button. He doesn't want to get old. He's getting younger every year. What is going on?"
Martellus: "That's what money does."
Michael: "A--hole. Nah, I'm just joking -- you can't say that. Overpaid."
Michael: "Dominant player."
Martellus: "Corny. Half of the NFL is corny, though."
Michael: "People love J.J. Watt, but they don't really like J.J. Watt, know what I'm saying?"
(Both smirk.)
Michael: "The greatest quarterback in the NFL."
Martellus: "Vicious. Competitive."
Michael: "A real Joe Montana."
Martellus: "The silver fox you never get to see but you hear about. You only get to take one photo, and you have to stay outside for a year just to get it."
Martellus: "I hated Jason Witten. I appreciated his game, but I always hated him."
Michael: "Probably the quarterback I like to hit the most."

You have to give it to them they're entertaining as hell.  But I don't think they made a lot of friends here.
