The best of Michael Bennett from Super Bowl Media Day

PHOENIX – Marshawn Lynch may have not said much during Super Bowl Media Day on Tuesday, but the ever-quotable Michael Bennett sure did. Here’s the best of it:

(on what made him decide to re-sign with the Seahawks) “I think it was just Pete Carroll and Dan Quinn. Knowing Dan for so long, it gave me a good insight of what the plan was for the team and what position they were heading toward. Just everything about it. And the city is so clean. You can eat off the road. People ride bikes around. Fresh fish – once I go somewhere else and eat, the food doesn’t taste the same because in Seattle everything is fresh and organic.”

(on whether he feels he’s quicker than most offensive linemen) “I think so. Some of the linemen are overweight and I’m in shape. I do Total Gym and I eat well, so it makes me a little quicker than them. I can last a little longer than them.”

(on whether he is stressed about the upcoming game) “I’m never stressed, man. I wake up every day and look in the mirror and say, ‘Damn, I look good,’ so I can’t be stressed.”

(on the perception that Seattle players are overconfident) “People hate us because, you know, when you talk a lot of smack, people usually hate you. But when you talk a lot of smack and you back it up, they hate you even more. I think that’s what it is. People hate (Richard) Sherman because he says he’s the best corner, and he plays like the best corner. So, it’s just like one of those things where people just hate us because of who we are, but we embrace it. I like it. I like when people hate us, because our stocks go up, our jerseys are higher selling. It’s pretty cool.”

(on having three daughters) “There’s a lot of estrogen going on, a lot of sensitivity. I have to break down my football barrier, being so macho all the time. Gotta watch those kid movies, gotta watch those girly things.”
