Brandon Jacobs: "I'm happy"

We noted over the weekend that Giants running back Brandon Jacobs called playing in the NFL “a cutthroat, backstabbing business.”

But that doesn’t mean Jacobs dislikes the business.

Jacobs told Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger that he’s got no problem with the Giants.

I’m happy,” Jacobs said. “People get different things confused through words. That’s not the case. The case is I’m here to win football games and ride it on out with my teammates.”

So what did those comments about “cutthroat, backstabbing” mean? Apparently Jacobs just doesn’t like the fact that he didn’t get a handoff in the final preseason game.

“Those were about the game, the last preseason game, only having four reps,” Jacobs said. “That’s where that whole thing came from. I didn’t have any carries at all, not one. I had a catch. I just wanted a few more snaps to try to get the ball.”

So Jacobs is the rare veteran player who actually wants to see more preseason action. And when he doesn’t get as many preseason carries as he wants, he feels that he’s been stabbed in the back. Sounds like a guy who’s ready for the real games to start.

    People don’t get confused through (by) words. People get confused when one day an NFL diva* says that the organization he works for are backstabbers and the next day it is about winning football games.

    It also sounds like he’s a whiny bee-yatch.

    Jacobs career is clearly on the decline.

    Jacobs gets $5,000,000 a year. Life is so tough.

    The NFL is going to hell in a handbasket when millionaires are complaining about this type of stuff. Not good

    Jacobs will put the rock in the truck all year. That’s all he has to do.

    Come on.
    Read between the lines. You guys are constantly putting your spin on NFL events and drawing conclusions. You are simply going to report a flimsy mis-direct by a blowhard and accept it?

    Brandon Jacobs has to be the biggest vagina in the NFL. I bet he is happy that he isn’t starting anymore. That way he doesn’t have to consistently get tackled like he weighs 160lbs on TV.

    I actually like it that BJ is/was ticked off. Hopefully he’ll take it out on opponents this season.
