Giants running back Brandon Jacobs wants fans to know that he doesn’t appreciate it when they boo the home team.
Jacobs groused about the fans booing after Sunday night’s loss to the Eagles, and he reiterated in an interview on WFAN that he’s fed up with Giants fans.
“I don’t take nothing back what I said about our fans,” Jacobs said, via the New York Daily News.
Jacobs said that hearing the home fans boo makes “it even harder to overcome adversity when they do things like that. . . . When we’re down and going through adversity we need them to lift us up not take us down, that’s all I’m trying to say.”
Jacobs added that negativity can wear players down.
“We don’t want to hear things like that when we’re playing at home in games we still got a chance to win,” Jacobs said. “It’s really hard. Giants fans are going to be Giants fans. They’re great when you’re up and — it’s like this everywhere else as well — but they kick you when you’re down. Right now I don’t think we’re down. I want them to cheer for us.”
Just win at New Orleans on Monday night, Brandon, and it’s guaranteed that Giants fans will be loudly cheering you at kickoff of the home game against the Packers the following week.
