The former Dallas Cowboy and Texas A&M Aggie would likely have been covered by Lee, at least a little.
After starting out so well in his first season with the Giants, Bennett's numbers have begun to flatten.
Here are his week-by-week stats:
v. Dallas 4 rec., 60 yds., 1 TD
v. TB 5 rec., 72 yds., 1 TD
at Car 6 rec., 73 yds., 1 TD
at Phi 1 rec., 2 yds.
v. Cle 3 rec., 30 yds.
at SF 1 rec., 9 yds.
v Wash 7 rec., 79 yds.
The production had really sloooooowed down after the third game. Marty B is still on pace for 57 receptions for 697 yards and 7 TDs; every one of those figures would be career highs by a wide margin.
He is playing with arguably the finest quarterback in the game right now and in a system that loves tight ends; you figure Marty B is apt to pop for another big game whether it is Sunday against the Cowboys or some other time soon.
The problem with Marty B remains is you are just never sure which player he is: The guy who ripped it up the first three games of the season, or the guy who vanished.
