Just Curious....

by: Michael Steffes

I have been meaning to post something about this since Wed. night, but I have come down with something that severely limited my will to live (and blog). Damn airplanes!

Anyway, I was curious if any other addicts out there are watching Hard Knocks. HK is covering the Cowboys training camp, and this week it centered around Martellus Bennett. It was not very flattering. He came off as lazy, disinterested, and adverse to listening to coaching. I would be freaked if this was the guy the Hawks had chosen to be a contributer this year. It also shows a good comparisson of various approaches.

The Seahawks signed a veteran guy (Putzier) before the draft, not really sure what would happen, who they may get, or how that player may actually play.

The Cowboys traded away two primary backups to key positions, one being a TE, for an extra fourth rounder. They then chose Bennett to be the key backup this year, but so far that looks like a stretch. Jerry Jones does things his own way, that is for sure.

Anyway, I would love to hear thoughts on what you think of Hard Knocks so far, whether or not this surprises you, and what you think the team will get from Carlson this year. ~END~
