Brandon Jacobs did not enjoy his brief tenure with the San Francisco 49ers. That has never really been a secret, as he felt that he was misled about what his role would be with the team. On Thursday, Jacobs was more vocal about his hatred for Jim Harbaugh than he has ever been.
During an interview with our friends Boomer and Carton on WFAN, Jacobs called the Niners coach a “bitch” several times. Toward the end of the interview, he was asked to clarify.
“It’s not was (a bitch), he is a bitch,” Jacobs said convincingly. “And that’s why he has never won anything.”
Jacobs appeared in just two games with the Niners in 2012, rushing five times for seven yards. At one point, he tweeted about hating his boss but later insisted the tweets were not directed toward the 49ers. We now find that almost impossible to believe.
“I have one regret in my career, and that’s going to the 49ers when I could have stayed in New York,” Jacobs said earlier in the interview. “I just wanted to see what stuff was like with another team and it didn’t work out.
“It is what it is. I’ve got two rings. Harbaugh, though, he’s a b—-. So it doesn’t matter.”
My guess is Harbaugh and the Niners feel the same way about Jacobs, though they would never say it publicly. It’s not as if they brought him to San Francisco just to make him look bad. Harbaugh obviously thought Jacobs could play a useful role, and there’s a reason he never did. I’m sure there’s more to it than Harbaugh being a bitch.
