Well, it’s safe to say no one saw this one coming.
From ProFootball Talk:
As a member of the Jets.
Jacobs has expressed interest in playing for the Jets less than two months after telling coach Rex Ryan, “It’s time to shut up, fat boy” after the Giants beat the Jets on Christmas Eve. Jacobs also said after the game that “Rex Ryan is a disrespectful bastard,” and that the “Jets have a big mouth, big belly coach that talks too much.”
So what has changed?
“It was a situation,” Jacobs told the New York Times regarding his post-game spat with Rex. “We were rivals then. There’s no apology needed.”
So does Jacobs mean that Rex doesn’t need to apologize, or that Jacobs doesn’t need to apologize? Either way, Jacobs apparently thinks no one needs to say they’re sorry.
“I like the way Rex handles his business,” Jacobs said. “The guys on that team I know, know how I feel.”
I mean, where do I start? Anytime you have a chance to add an overrated, past-their-prime power back who can’t block, coming off a postseason where he contributed literally nothing to his team’s Super Bowl run, you absolutely HAVE TO do it.
In all seriousness, fuck Jacobs. He would come crying to the Jets after all the shit he talked about us all season, begging us to sign him. Truth is, if I saw Brandon Jacobs homeless on the side of the Jersey Turnpike, I wouldn’t give him a penny. Nevermind, sign this buffoon for the one-year veteran’s minimum. Not our problem that the Giants will undoubtedly cut your ass and effectively end your NFL career.
Have fun in the UFL next season. Karma’s a bitch, ‘fat boy’.
