Josh Gordon: The Battle Off The Field #StoryTimeWithEarl

By Earl Bennett After being released I found myself in Cleveland. A city with similar die hard fans like Chicago, thirsting for a Super Bowl. I joined a receiver corps that was led by Josh Gordon, who was by far the best athletic specimen I had seen in my life. Gordon’s skills on the field were obvious, but a conversation with him shed light on a turbulent career.  After getting settled and adjusted the first week I found myself outside of the meeting room waiting with Gordon for the coaches. My wife and I had just settled into our home in Houston and that was an icebreaker for me knowing …

A Call From Charlie Weis #StoryTimeWithEarl

By Earl Bennett College recruitment was fun, but also very annoying. The constant calls and texts from coaches made it cumbersome. There are some prestigious schools, whether academically and/or athletically, that are always entertained based on its reputation. But, a call from then Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis would change my perspective in too schools. During my high school career, I played both defense and offense. I was recruited by some teams as a safety and others as a wide receiver. My heart and passion was in being a wide receiver.  Jerry Rice was my favorite player so I was set on being a receiver, and I always enjoyed making plays. …

Vanderbilt Hosed in Florida #StoryTimeWithEarl

By Earl Bennett College football on Saturdays is a rich tradition in my family. I grew up watching The Iron Bowl and sided with Auburn just to make my parents’ life harder. My favorite team was the Florida Gators. Steve Spurrier had my heart as a coach. But after not receiving a scholarship from the Gators I found myself in the Swamp as a true freshman ready to light them up. This was a game I had marked on my calendar. New Florida coach Urban Meyers did not know, but I had a bullseye on him for not recruiting me. We wanted to get off to a fast start and …

Who Got Fired!?! #StoryTimeWithEarl

By Earl Bennett In 2012, we needed to win the season’s final game, and we needed the Packers to defeat the Vikings to get into the playoffs. The latter did not happen so we were eliminated from playoff contention. After landing back in Chicago and finding out the results, Coach Lovie Smith addressed the team and stated we would have exit physicals in the morning. I arrived at the facility in the morning and entered the cafeteria where most players were gathered. I ordered my usual pancakes and bacon and found myself a table. ESPN lit up every TV. So, when a player says, “I don’t listen to the media,” …
