Marty B is doing with the Giants what he never did with the Texas A&M Aggies or certainly the Dallas Cowboys. Perhaps maybe it was playing for a head coach in College Station who didn't feature him the right way, or playing behind a tight end in Dallas whom he was never going to get the opportunity to be anything other than his caddie.
In his first season with the Giants, Marty B is tearing it up.
In three games he has 15 receptions for 185 yards and three touchdowns. Marty B has touchdown catches in every game this season, including NYG's 36-7 win in Carolina on Thursday night. Those are his first TD catches since 2008 when he was a rookie with the Cowboys. He is on pace to shatter any previous career high in every category.
So whose fault is this that Marty B didn't do this, ever, with the Cowboys?
Some of it is on the coaches who simply were never going to give Marty B the chance to be ahead of Witten.
Some of it is on Marty B. He may be thriving now because the opportunity is there, and perhaps leaving the Cowboys and the state of Texas was the best thing for his career.
Marty B signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Giants in this past offseason and claimed it was his time to shine. It is turning out he was right.
