Like most guys who have played for the Chicago Bears in the past 10 years, new Green Bay Packers tight end Martellus Bennett hated Aaron Rodgers.
“I hated playing against Aaron,” Bennett said. “I just got off the phone with him, I said, ‘I hate that guy on the other side,’ but it’s going to be pretty good to be on the same side with him and catching passes. I’ve seen him make a lot of amazing throws and he’s been one of the best for a really long time. I’m just going to try to come in and contribute to the best of my ability.”
And like most jokes, there’s an element of truth to it.
Naturally, if you played for the Bears, as Bennett did for three years, of course you hate the Packers and Aaron Rodgers.
That’s because they’re always whooping your ass!
Lately, Bennett has had it good, though.
In those three years in Chicago, the Bears went 19-29. Then he got traded to the Patriots and won a Super Bowl, while Tom Brady was throwing him the ball.
Now Bennett will get to try to duplicate that with Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball.
