Michael Bennett did his research on former South Dakota running back Zach Zenner.  He was really impressed with the small schooler so much he called him the best white running back in the league. 

“I think the running back, man, he’s — there’s not many white running backs in the NFL but he has to be the best right now,” Bennett said of Zenner Tuesday. “He’s doing such a great job of cutbacks and hitting the hole. He’s a really good back. I know all the stuff he did in college, three straight seasons of 2,000 yards. I don’t care where you’re at, if you can do that you have got amazing talent. And I think he’s just an amazing running back, the things he can do with the ball. He got good balance, he can spin, he can catch it out of the backfield. I think he fits the offense perfectly.”

Zenner, who has led the Lions in rushing the past two weeks, responded to the comments and said he believes it is a compliment.

“Everyone’s entitled to their opinion and it sounded like he said some pretty nice stuff,” Zenner said via the Detroit Free Press. “So I’m appreciative of that and I think he’s a really good player and we’ve got to be ready to face him. He does some stuff that you just kind of say wow when you look at the tape.”

This week Cam Newton will face the Seattle Seahawks and one player ready for the match-up is Richard Sherman. The former Stanford defensive back is ready to get some revenge on the Panthers and QB Cam Newton after the loss they suffered last season in the playoffs. In the process, Seattle can pretty much guarantee that the struggling Panthers won’t earn a postseason spot this season.

“I guess karma gets you. Doesn’t look like they are going to the playoffs this year,” Sherman said, via Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times.

Sherman is taking about Newton taking the Seahawks 12th man flag and throwing it away following Carolina’s 31-24 win over Seattle in the NFC Divisional playoffs.

Being an Iron Man in the NFL is not easy. When you can go for multiple seasons without missing a game it is hard to do.  The Seahawks Seahawks safety Earl Thomas has played in 106 consecutive games since the team draft him in the first round back in 2010 out of Texas.
