Hmmm, Actually moderately suprised by the turn of events. But then again, not really.
He came to GB to win another title. Rodgers breaks his collar bone, shortly there after Bennett tweets he will probably retire after 2017.
He basically checked out after he knew the chance at winning was over. Don't really need a guy like that on the team.
I was stoked when they signed Bennett but I’m also not connected the way these front office guys are supposed to be. They wanted to fortify the TE position and instead of re-signing Cook, the devil they knew, they decided to dance with Bennett when it appears they should’ve had better sense than that. I’ll give myself and fans a mulligan for being deceived, but those guys in the FO aren’t supposed to have the wool pulled over their eyes like this.
I pretty much agree. I thought Bennett would be a great help too. His blocking skills alone seemed to make him a good fit. Someone who could actually pick up the blitz, to keep them off Rodgers. It's too bad it went this way, but like others have said, it was a gamble, and it didn't work. That happens. In this case, it's a triple pronged problem.
House, injured quite a bit. Brooks, pretty much missing the season. Bennett, a no-show on the field. We really didn't win this one for sure. But at least they tried.
And now he's a Patriot? Let's see what happens with his physical.
I was happy with the Bennett signing. Everyone, including FO people get duped, especially when the player is playing them. I'm fine with them releasing him. Says he can't play anymore this season, but is fine playing for the Pats.
Hope this doesn't mean TT never signs another FA - unless it's because he not a GM anymore .
Boys you don't get a mulligan or a in this business. The whole FA game now is risky. This isn't the 90's when Ron Wolf and company could go out and pick up a Reggie White and company.
Once again PackinAtl was telling it correct, it's a league wide talent issue. It's just not there and it's showcased week after week. The guys that have talent are under contract... players that teams let walk do so for a reason. Buyer beware.
