Coming off a bye week, the Green Bay Packers looked as they had a good chance to defeat the Detroit Lions at home. Well, to put it bluntly, they didn’t. They took a hard 30-17 loss, and Hundley didn’t look good until the final minutes of the game. He threw for a total of 245 yards, with zero touchdowns and zero interceptions. He had a QBR that was a low 51.5.
Not only is the A-Rod injury tearing up the Bucks season, after TE Martellus Bennett was released, he had some pretty nasty things to say about the Green Bay Packer franchise. Here’s what he said:
“The Packers examined my shoulder on my visit March 10 and cleared it. They even gave me an X-Ray as well. It got worse during the season, specifically against the Cowboys so I asked to have it checked and we checked it. After a few days of contemplating to play with it or get surgery, I chose surgery. Now here we are….
They tried to [flip] over me. Dr. [Patrick] McKenzie trying to cover his own [butt.] After trying to persuade me to play thru a major injury and me choosing to get surgery.
They have access to all my medical records. My shoulder wasn’t where it is now at the beginning of the season. I [messed] up playing for the @packers.
Dr. McKenzie didn’t make me feel safe and was pushing to play which I thought was weird. Not that he was trying to get me to play thru it but the way he was saying things. I didn’t trust him. So I got 3 other opinions from doctors who all said I need to get it fixed. So I decided to do that. And they decided to waive me with some bull[cheese] excuse. Failure disclose.
Every week we do a body evaluation sheet in the weight and pretty much every week I circled my shoulder. I just kept playing but it got worse.
During the bye week, I got off anti-inflammatories to clean my system and could really feel the pain. So I asked to examine it first day back in. And that’s when we found it was really [screwed] up.
They panicked. Thinking that I was trying to go on IR and be on their books next year. When I mentioned that I would possibly retire. So they tried to [mess] me before they thought I would [screw] them. This was all about the money.
All about the money. I get it. But don’t lie homie. You knew [what the heck] was up.
I had intentions of playing all 8 games as I mentioned in the post during the bye week, but found out it was worse than I felt after getting it checked out.
Now I’m like [screw] it.
I chose my health over the ‘team.’ They chose their money over me.” – Martellus Bennett
Some strong words said, and Packers like Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson stood up for the organization. This whole ordeal could make some great players not want to sign with Green Bay. It could be a stretch, but Martellus Bennett may have just killed off a Green Bay Packers dynasty.
