Inside a Strange Mind

Martellus Bennett offers his unique take on the Bears, a sequel to Kazaam and—of course—dinosaurs

I didn’t want to cheat the system, so these are literally the first 10 things that came to my mind. That’s the point, right?

1. I think there should be more mythical creatures as NFL mascots. You could have the Griffins, or the Loch Ness Monsters. It doesn’t get much better than the Griffins. You could have the Black Unicorns, my nickname. Pegasus wouldn’t be that great of a team mascot, but it would be a cool nickname for an offense.

2. I think it’s not easy being beautiful.

3. I think—no, I wonder—are clownfish the only fish that can swim backwards?

4. I think I love dinosaurs. I have a comic I created that should come out next year that’s about dinosaurs. I hear there’s a new dinosaur exhibit at Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo. I need to go to that ASAP. Dinosaurs still exist. Trust me.

5. Roooooaaaaar.

6. I think I need to write my goals for the season down soon! I write them down every year. They’re all-around goals. I like to keep most of them to myself, but this year I’d like to be more involved in the community. I haven’t been as involved as I should have been in the past. I need to get involved in Chicago.

7. I think dreams come true.

8. I think Kazaam 2 would be dope with me in it.

9. I think this is an important time of the year. With a new coach, no one knows any of his rules. It’s like when you start dating a new girl; you’ve got to get to know that person and figure out all the things she likes. I think it’s an important thing to do when anybody comes into power, like when Obama came into office. You’ve got to know what he’s about, and he’s got to establish his rules early.

10. I think everybody on this team has a chip on their shoulder, individually and as a team. When you get guys together with that kind of hunger, it’s a special thing.

I think #5 is the most truthful.

I used to watch Kazaam as a youngster as well. Might of been my favorite show.

I'm a HUGE Bears fan. Of course I want this move to work out fantastically. Bennett is obviously going to be the best Tight End they've had in a few years, especially since the new offense will most likely utilize the position. But, I lived in Dallas when Bennett was a Cowboy. I can tell you, his antics wore thin. It's all fun now, and it was fun in Dallas as well. The talk shows loved him. But, when you drop key passes and then post a crazy song on uTube, people grow tired of it. 

I don't think the Cowboys would take him back even if he were free. Let's keep our fingers crossed that he's grown and learned to become a reliable professional and not just some fun side show!!

Sorry, never happen. ANYTHING with 'black' in name will get the black caucus riled up.  See the injuns ( i mean native americans) for that.

@WHO*IS*ESPN I don't understand why people go around being shitty on the internet. Especially at little known spots like this. Go away with your racial nonsense.

Whoever wants to lose all his illusions about professional athletes at once, should read this.

#9 - I think the "author" needs to work to understand what his new coach (playing the role of boss) expects of HIM, not the other way around.
