First Giants running back Brandon Jacobs said the NFL is a “cutthroat, backstabbing business.” Then he said, “I’m happy.”
Now he seems unhappy.
In the Giants’ locker room today, Jacobs first refused to answer a question, then lashed out at a reporter and stormed off when discussing how Ahmad Bradshaw has passed him on the depth chart.
Asked whether he and Bradshaw would both need to put their egos aside and do what’s best for the team, Jacobs glared at a reporter and said, “You think I’m stupid, don’t you? You guys are funny.”
With that, he brushed past the reporters and walked away.
For the record, based on this video at the Star Ledger web site, the reporter who drew Jacobs’ ire appeared to be Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. There was nothing at all improper about the questions Jacobs had been asked, as shown on the video.
But no matter how happy he says he is, Jacobs sure looks like he’s in a foul mood heading into the season.
