Turns out no one is safe when the Bennett brothers get together.

Michael Bennett, the Seahawks eccentric defensive end, has never been one to hold back with the media and his younger brother Martellus is no different. A no-holds-barred ESPN feature published Wednesday highlighted the pair’s close relationship and unique brand of humor. That included calling out commissioner Roger Goodell, a handful of NFL QB’s and Seattle head coach Pete Carroll, among others.

Three Things: Seahawks rookies making impressions

Here are the brothers’ thoughts on a few of the NFL’s most prominent names:

Bears QB Jay Cutler (Martellus’ former teammate)

Michael: “Worst quarterback in the NFL.”

Martellus: “I’d be open and he’d throw into double coverage.”

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell

Michael: “A–hole. Nah, I’m just joking – you can’t say that. Overpaid.”

Rams coach Jeff Fisher

Martellus: “If a QB went 7-9, he’d never be able to find a job.”

Michael: “Make sure he’s in the NFC West.”

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll

Martellus: “Joel Osteen.”

Michael: “Tom Cruise. I feel like Pete Carroll is like Benjamin Button. He doesn’t want to get old. He’s getting younger every year. What is going on?”

Martellus: “That’s what money does.”

Texans QB Brock Osweiler

Michael: “I’ve got more sacks than he’s got touchdowns.”

Martellus: “I’ve caught more balls than he’s completed.”

Texans DE J.J. Watt

Michael: “Dominant player.”

Martellus: “Corny. Half of the NFL is corny, though.”

Michael: “People love J.J. Watt, but they don’t really like J.J. Watt, know what I’m saying?”

Eagles QB Sam Bradford

(Both smirk.)

Michael: “The greatest quarterback in the NFL.”

Martellus: “Vicious. Competitive.”

Michael: “A real Joe Montana.”

Patriots QB Tom Brady

Martellus: “The silver fox you never get to see but you hear about. You only get to take one photo, and you have to stay outside for a year just to get it.”

Cowboys TE Jason Witten

Martellus: “I hated Jason Witten. I appreciated his game, but I always hated him.”

Panthers QB Cam Newton

Michael: “Probably the quarterback I like to hit the most.”
