San Francisco running back Brandon Jacobs is angry that he’s not getting much playing time with the 49ers, and he doesn’t care if you criticize the way he goes about expressing that.
Jacobs, who previously tweeted about hating his boss but then claimed he wasn’t actually talking about coach Jim Harbaugh or anyone else with the 49ers, returned to Twitter on Saturday and acknowledged that he’s mad that his playing time in San Francisco has consisted of just five carries for seven yards in two games. And Jacobs also ripped fans who have criticized him for complaining about his playing time.
“I don’t understand why people are angry at me because I wanna do what I am paid to do, I am a competitive person, I think people should be mad if I didn’t wanna play, but I forgot the people that’s pissed they don’t have a athletic bone and their body,” Jacobs wrote.
Jacobs also addressed a comment he made on Instagram, where he posted a picture of himself celebrating winning the Super Bowl last season with the Giants. Asked by a fan why he didn’t post any 49ers pictures on Instagram, Jacobs responded that he has had a terrible year in San Francisco and therefore has nothing to celebrate.
“I am on this team rotting away so why would I wanna put any pics up of anything that say niners this is by far the worst year I ever had, I’ll tell you like I told plenty others,” Jacobs wrote on Instagram.
Jacobs sure doesn’t sound like he wants to be a 49er. Given how little he has contributed to the team this season, and how well the 49ers have played without him on the field, it wouldn’t be surprising if the 49ers decide to oblige Jacobs and cut him.
