Boxing, Yoga And The HulaDecember 14th, 2012
Veteran Tampa Tribune scribe Woody Cummings has uncovered that Michael Bennett is sending messages via hula dance. Rather than pull a pineapple from his pants after a sack, Bennett decided that a quick hula following one of his two sacks Sunday against Philadephia was the best way to help him get a ticket to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl.
Bennett told Cummings he deserves to be mentioned among the elite defensive ends and offseason work helped him get there.
“I worked on a lot of little things,” Bennett said. “I did a lot of yoga and some boxing to help get a little leaner and just worked on my pass rush skills a lot, anything to get that extra edge.”
Pro Bowl voting ends Monday for fans, and players and coaches vote next week. It’s one of the NFL’s stupidest policies, to have the Pro Bowl chosen with two games remaining.
Joe doubts Bennett will make it, unless he can crank out another big game Sunday in New Orleans. There’s so much political BS and popularity-contest nonsense associated with a Pro Bowl nod, Joe doubts Bennett has caught enough attention — even with the dance.
