Video of Seahawks DE Michael Bennett Cursing Out Reporter: ‘Get Out My Face’ (Video)
After the loss against the Atlanta Falcons, Seahawks DE Michael Bennett had a heated exchange with a reporter when he was asked about the Seahawks’ pass rush and why it had trouble getting to Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.
Bennett didn’t like the assumption that the defensive line was unable to do their job.
“After Bennett said that “Matt Ryan is obviously the MVP of the NFL this year and made great plays,” a reporter said to Bennett, “You weren’t able to get as much pressure on him as you were…”
“We got a lot of pressure,” Bennett said. “He threw the ball really fast. There was some busted stuff going on so obviously you don’t know football. He threw the ball pretty fast. He did his thing. We rushed as good as we could. Don’t point and say we didn’t do what we needed to do, OK? Don’t do that.
“Get out of my face now. Don’t tell me I didn’t do my job (expletive). OK, exactly. Get the (expletive) out of my face. Like I said, get out of my face. Don’t play with me. Don’t play with me. I just put my heart on the (expletive) field. Don’t (expletive) play with me. Get the (expletive) out of my face then. Try me again, see what happens. I ain’t one of these (expletive) out here. Don’t try to tell me what I didn’t do (expletive).”
