      I keep hearing Martellus Bennett this, Martellus Bennett that, but let's be honest guys, he hasn't done a damn thing this season.
      He done a lot, he's looked completely confused & inept in 2 of 3 games this season. I was going to add him to the list but ran out of steam. But if Dallas is going to cut a guy before October, it's got to be Bobby Carpenter.

            By the plural " teams" do you really mean singular "team"? He's only beaten one team aside from Pitt.

              He'll come around. Until he shows me that he can last the entire season with some consistency in his performance, then he'll always have that perennial loser tag hanging over him.

                My take on Beason vs. Willis: Both play excellent in run and pass coverage. Willis tends to get more publicity because he was the best LB on the 49ers when they weren't good. Beason is quite underrated at this stage compared to Willis. Willis is also getting more publicity these days because he plays for a HOF MLB as his coach, and his team's D is much improved and is helping the 49ers win games.

                I doubt Beason is going to get a lot of recognition this year because Carolina is a bit sunk...

                  Cutler has never been a winning QB anywhere he's been. He has a ton of talent, but he hasn't really proven it consistently. The move to the Bears basically gives him zero excuses. He has performed well the last 2 weeks, but that doesn't mean a whole lot yet. If he continues to play at this level, I think he will eventually shed that tag. As of now, he is still young and inconsistent, but in terms of physical ability, he might be the most talented QB in the league...

                    I would LOVE to hear your reasoning for this. I have to disagree with you on this 100%. Dan Henning has been calling absolutely terrible games so far this season, and many of the well-informed fans agree that he has been one of the main reasons we are 0-3. If you want proof, go watch from 3:30 left in the fourth quarter against the Colts. We started off the drive calling two draw plays, which took about a minute and a half and one of our timeouts (doesn't seem possible, I know, but apparently it is), then we continued the rest of the two-minute drive with play-action on almost every play. Who is that fooling? I don't understand the logic behind that at all, it makes me mad just thinking about it. Takes time away from the QB making his reads because his back is to the field. Ridiculous. Credit him for the Wildcat if you want, which is doing great in Miami this year at 7.5 yards per play, but that is really David Lee, and Ronnie Brown's incredible execution of it.

                    Not only that but his play calling just reaks of fear. We don't push the ball deep EVER (blame that on Pennington if you want, but the first play of the game for the Chargers was a deep ball to Ginn that he was open on, but Pennington overthrew him). We are constantly settling for field goals as well, despite the fact that we have the best 3rd down completion percentage in the NFL (at least before this week, idk anymore) and we are 3/3 on 4th downs.

                    I don't understand you comparing Sparano to Mangini at all. I've never heard a player utter a bad word about him. Most of the players love him, despite the fact that he's one of the toughest coaches in the NFL.

                      If we're speaking of underrated ILBs, to me, the most unappreciated MIKE is easily David Harris.

                      David Harris in my eyes, is better than Patrick Willis.

                      He's played like it thus far in his career, the only reason why he doesn't get the recognition that Willis gets is because he doesn't have the workout numbers that Willis has.

                      But Harris is the best 3-4 ILB in the game, arguably the best inside backer in the league.

                        I would have said that Stewart Bradley was underrated, but he is on IR... Boo!

                        Yes, Harris is a very good player. He is around the ball a lot. Ryan will get a lot out of him, and we could see him in the Pro Bowl this year because of the Jets' record and more media coverage of him.

                          I was pimping Bradley all offseason.

                          Trust me, I feel your pain with Kenny Phillips :(

                          Harris was a beast before Rex Ryan came to town.

                            If you want to talk about underrated 3-4 ILBs, let me know if you know who Stephen Cooper is without looking it up. :D

                            I agree on Harris though, and this guy has been producing like gangbusters since day 1. Willis>Beason.

                              Harris was a major reason why the Jets chose to trade Vilma a few years back. The guy is just a playmaker.

                              Yeah, imagine how good the Eagles/Giants games would be with everyone at full strength...

                                Harris is a stud, but he can't even touch Willis or Beason for that matter as a cover backer. Now he's as good against the run as Beason and as good of a pass rusher as Willis but he's a small notch below both as willis is a tad better at blowing up the run while Beason is a more explosive pass rusher. That said I'd gladly take him on our team and I wouldn't be shocked to see him in the playoffs.
