If any NFL players are interested in learning the best way to completely phase themselves out of an offense, Brandon Jacobs has been putting on an outstanding clinic. As a fantasy owner, I’m tired of Jacobs’ act. I can only imagine how Giants fans must feel.
When Jacobs was sidelined with a knee injury he complained to reporters about his limited role in the offense. Basically, he was whining ahead of time in anticipation of not receiving many carries when he returned to action. This past week, Brandon basically hit rock bottom with New York when he was candid about hoping the Giants find a way to get rid of him this offseason. Despite the fact that New York improved to 5-2 on Sunday, Jacobs still acted like a baby.
“I’ve got nothing positive to say,” Jacobs said after gaining only 10 yards on four carries and being booed by Giants fans. “The most positive thing: I got family at home and I got a fast-ass car being delivered on Tuesday. That’s it.”
He then added that he didn’t want to say anything further because he always seems to “say something for everyone else’s dislike.” Poor guy can’t even talk without the media blowing what he says out of proportion, right? So a win means nothing but a fast-ass car brings Brandon some joy — so what? You’d be pumped too. Winning isn’t everything.
