Brandon Jacobs was quoted yesterday, The people outside that want to say they’re fans and don’t believe in us, I couldn’t care less if they ever believed in us,” Jacobs said, according to the New York Daily News. “They don’t mean anything to us if they didn’t believe in us. They can go back and finish living their miserable lives as they’ve been living and hoping that they lose and whatever.”
I am a huge fan of the game of football, an enormous player advocate and a NY Giants fan, just read my posts. I even stand up for guys like Cedric Benson when I feel the NFL is doing them wrong, but Brandon Jacobs is a fool, he is embarrassing himself, the entire roster of players on the Giants and the NFL. Calling out fans and telling them to go back to their “miserable lives”, and that folks who question the actions and moves of the team in the context of following and rooting for a team according to you, those ” fans don’t mean anything to the team”.
If he is speaking for the Giants as a team, he just about knifed the New York area fans. I have no clue what your point is Brandon other than demeaning the people who pay your fat 25 million dollar contract while you average 3.3 yards a carry, you are ranked a dismal 37th in the league in rushing , you are constantly displaying your interest in boxing on the field in the middle of a football game, siding with your buddy Plaxico against the organization or throwing your helmet in the stands after you get stuffed yet again at the line of scrimmage, because you want to run like a half back instead of a fullback. Well you know what Brandon we are sick of your miserable play on the field, your attitude and of the stupid comments that come out of your mouth.
You have no clue Brandon Jacobs and you need to go. To play in the NFL is a gift, to be paid ungodly sums of money by the team that employs you is something to be cherished. To compete week after week on the gridiron is a privilege not a right, To have fans embrace you and your plight is something to be earned, not demanded. The entire NFL sport garnishes 9 billion dollars a year from those ” miserable fans”. All that money comes from the fans pockets, so you can do those things. To call out any fan ( if he hasn’t physically assaulted you or threatened you or your family) is inexcusable. No, not all fans say intelligent things and no they are all not going to line up behind you and root for you either, but they have a right to voice their opinion, without you condemning them to their “miserable lives” if they don’t agree with you or support you 100% of the time. You on the other hand are a jerk.
It is not your locker room, you are not the team captain and it’s not the players against everyone else. So who are you speaking for other than yourself. You are a paid employee of the New York Giants and the NFL and the comments you made embarrass you and everyone you represent. You are not rallying anyone to a cause and your “support me or stay at home attitude” is ludicrous, why don’t you stay at home and let’s see what you do with your attitude in the world where we live in, with our meaningless little lives that you have no need for.
I for one have had enough of Brandon Jacobs. Time for him to go off to his miserable life where he clearly has ego issues. He should be fined and benched, better yet take his anemic 3.3 yard rushing average and cut him. Let the other RB’s of which the Giants have plenty play.
Hey Roger Goodell while you are making this a fan friendly league, why does something like this go unchecked. I think as Commissioner this is the very circumstance you should be weighing in on.
