WEENIE OF THE WEEK 11-17-17


We are proud to name as this week’s Rick and Len Show Weenie of the Week…Martellus Bennett of the Green Bay Pa…strike that. Martellus Bennett of the new England Patriots. As you probably know, Bennett signed a 3-year contract with the Packer before the season having played for the Patriots last year. Through the first 7 games, Bennett showed a remarkable inability to catch seemingly easy passes.

Then, after Aaron Rodgers was injured, Bennett suddenly claimed he was in too much pain to play the rest of the season due to a previously unmentioned serious shoulder injury. Others claimed he just gave up on his team.

The Packers then released Bennett. He responded by unloading on the Packers, claiming that the team knew about his injured shoulder when they signed him and refused to allow him to have surgery. Bennett called out the Packers’ team doctor, saying that he pressured him to play through his injury, something Packer players to a man say would be uncharacteristic of the doc.

Bennett, who don’t forget, was in too much pain to play the rest of the season, then resigned with the Patriots and wonder of wonder, miracle of miracles was back on the field Monday night where he caught three passes.

So,

For going from being Martellus Bennett to being Mar-didn’t-tell-us Bennett.

For signing with the Patriots, which I guess is better than signing with Greyhound, given his inclination to throw people he works with under the bus.

For at least not claiming he sustained additional injuries when the door hit his ass on the way out.

We are proud to name Martellus Bennett as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIE OF THE WEEK!
