5 biggest trash talkers in Seattle Seahawks history
By Lee Vowell
Number 2: Seahawks DT Michael Bennett was a classic on and off the field
Bennett’s trash talk was a bit different because it didn’t stop once he was off the field but it was also mostly hilarious. Yet, at the same, his words could be very poignant and meaningful. Bennett is a super-smart guy to begin with, so it is likely easier to find words that can be biting but also humorous at the same time.
Here are some notable Bennett quips off the field:
“Quarterback is the only position in the NFL where you could be mediocre and get paid.”
“It’s like you look at a girl who looks like you, and you find out it’s your cousin, so you can’t go on a date with her even though you’d like to, because she looks like you. But then you see her friend, and her friend’s really hot, and you’re like, ‘that’s not my cousin,’ so it’s good.”
When asked about signing a “hometown” discount with the Seahawks: “There is no such thing as a discount. This is not Costco, this is not Walmart – this is real life.”
“Black people can’t steal anything from the police, bad things happen. So I never stole it, I borrowed it. That’s the story I’m sticking to.”
There are many Bennett sayings. In fact, he has so much to say that he wrote a book called “Things That Make White People Uncomfortable.” But the book isn’t written simply to antagonize but shine a light as well. It is 100 percent Michael Bennett and that is a special thing.
