Michael and Martellus Bennett roast the NFL and players

Published Add your comment

Unfortunately, the National Football League is full of a lot of boring people who don't like to show any personality, for whatever.

Thankfully, some brave souls still exist who are not afraid to speak their mind, no matter how crazy or potentially disrespectful it may seem.

The Bennett brothers, Michael and Martellus, are such examples, and in a recent article from ESPN, the two showed off just how unafraid they are of speaking their minds, taking aim at the NFL and some of their peers.

Here are a collection of the Bennett brothers' feelings about some named players:

On Jay Cutler:

“Worst quarterback in the NFL,” [Michael] 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.

On Roger Goodell:

Michael: “A—hole. Nah, I’m just joking — you can’t say that. Overpaid.”

On Sam Bradford:

(Both smirk.)

Michael: “The greatest quarterback in the NFL.”

Martellus: “Vicious. Competitive.”

Michael: “A real Joe Montana.”

Eli Manning:

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.”

On J.J. Watt:

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?”

Really incredible stuff from the brothers Bennett. Hopefully they don't get in too much trouble for their comments, especially the one where they called the NFL "N****s For Lease."

Other interesting notes from the interview are that the duo dress like hipsters, Michael doesn't eat American chocolate and tries to make people wonder if he is homeless or a millionaire with his scruffy beard, while Martellus feels like he is the Kanye of the NFL and has been collaborating with the company on a stop-motion television show.

The two are certainly interesting characters themselves.
