Eli The Best QB In The League

The last time we heard from former Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett, now with the Giants, he was explained that his weight had reached 291 pounds because he was in *too good *of shape.

Now he's complimenting his new quarterback, Eli Manning, which is perfectly fine. He used to say nice things about his old quarterback all the time.

But he never called Tony Romo the best in the league.

"I don't think there's a better quarterback than (Manning) in the NFL right now," Bennett told The Star-Ledger. "Watching his approach to the game and the way he coaches everybody up and gets everybody involved, I think he's an unselfish quarterback, which is what you want. He throws a very catchable ball, which is always awesome. He's a great guy, a great quarterback."

Bennett, who caught only 85 passes in four seasons in Dallas, was frustrated the Cowboys didn't give him more chances as a receiver.

He apparently believes Romo played favorites, and that Manning won't.

"I mean, he's just looking for the open guy," Bennett said. "It doesn't matter who it is or what number you are. If you're open, he's going to hit you. You have to be ready. That's what makes it so fun playing in this offense because anytime you beat your guy, you know you could get the ball."
