Chicago Bears’ Martellus Bennett Wants to Punch Brandon Meriweather

Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather unleashed two helmet-to-helmet hits on Chicago Bears players Sunday, and it earned him a two-game suspension.

The former Bear is now enemy number one in the Chicago locker room, with several players, including Brandon Marshall taking verbal shots at their former teammate.

Tight end Martellus Bennett minced no words.  Here's what reported Bennett had to say on Chicago radio:

"You got out of there without getting clobbered illegally by Brandon Meriweather, so that's a victory," one of the hosts said to Bennett, via the DC Sports Bog.

"Oh, I still want to punch him in the face," Bennett replied.

One of the hosts expressed disgust over Meriweather's glib tone in talking about his fines on Sunday.

"The scumbag," Bennett responded. "What it comes down to, at the end of the day, the players have got to look out for the players. There's a way to go out there and be a beast when you hit people, and have nobody want to come across the middle. But then there's a way not to do it, where you're deliberately hitting guys (high), or after the game you're saying, 'Oh, I've got to pay,' because you know what you did was wrong when you were doing it.

"Then it just becomes wrong. It's not ignorance, because he knows what he's doing, or guys know what they're doing. Some guys are making these attacks on other guys."


The Bears have a bye this week, before taking on the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on November 4th.
