New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett has been very impressed with quarterback Eli Manning so far during his time with Big Blue.
Bennett has been very encouraged by Manning’s unselfishness.
“Oh man, I don’t think there’s a better quarterback than him in the NFL right now,” Bennett told Mike Garafolo of The Star-Ledger during minicamp. “Watching his approach to the game and the way he coaches everybody up and gets everybody involved, I think he’s an unselfish quarterback, which is what you want. He throws a very catchable ball, which is always awesome. He’s a great guy, a great quarterback.”
Bennett says it doesn’t matter whose open, Manning will throw the ball to that player.
“I mean, he’s just looking for the open guy,” said Bennett. “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. That’s what makes it so fun playing in this offense because anytime you beat your guy, you know you could get the ball.”
I wonder if Bennett is slightly hinting that Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had his favorites and would only throw to those guys. Especially Jason Witten.
