Brandon Jacobs In Right Frame Of Mind, Ready To Win Football Games

Brandon Jacobs had a bit of a rough patch earlier in the week with the whole helmet throwing incident which then turned into rumors of a trade request, though it seems all is well now according to an interview transcribed by Big Blue View’s Ed Valentine.

As far as the trade request, Jacobs notes that everything is taken care of by saying “There was always peace there. We went through it. We got it taken care of. We got it all out the way, and now it’s time to go out and perform and win football games.”

Jacobs also commented on Sunday night’s incident, apologizing to everyone involved.

[…] And the Indianapolis Colts organization as well and their fans and our fans, for the incident that, again, I didn’t mean for that to happen. I was angry. I should have never thrown the helmet to begin with, no matter where it went to. And a special apology to the fellow that caught it, I apologized to him and his family as well and everyone else who was in the area who could have been harmed. So those are my apologies, and I mean them 100 percent.

Don’t worry, though, Jacobs was also able to answer some football-related questions as well – including if he’ll be able to set the tone again like he’s been able to do in the past.

I can get out and set the physical tone when opportunity is given. That’s what I want to do. I want to get everybody jumping up right away so we can let these teams know that right off the bat that’s what this whole game is going to be like. This will get ready, and the next team that’s coming in the next week, it’s going to be like that for them as well. So that’s what I want to do. I want to send positive energy across to my football team.

Brandon Jacobs has been fined $10,000 for throwing his helmet into the stands against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football.

The troubled Jacobs was scheduled to have a meeting with Giants management today as well, where it was likely they would discuss his outburst as well as the rumors that the running back was looking to be traded.


Bradshaw: Jacobs Not Demanding Trade

His grammar might not be great, but fellow running back Ahmad Bradshaw’s message was still delivered today when he was asked about reports Brandon Jacobs wanted to be traded from the New York Giants.

Bradshaw, who has displaced Jacobs as the Giants No. 1 back, said reports of a trade demand by Jacobs “was not right.”

OK, Ahmad. We get your drift. Just don’t try to deny that Jacobs is one unhappy dude these days.


Jacobs, Giants Will Discuss Future On Tuesday

Vinny DiTrani of the Bergen Record is becoming the 'go-to' guy on the Brandon Jacobs story. Here is his latest tweet.



Jacobs Has Not Asked For Trade ... Yet

Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger says unhappy Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has not asked the team for a trade … yet.

Since he has not yet met with anyone from the organization after Sunday’s helmet toss and outburst at a reporter, all bets are still off.


Brandon Jacobs Helmet Toss

NFL will only say they are “looking into it.”

Guess here is Jacobs winds up with at least a hefty fine, and possibly a suspension. Is “acting like a baby” an offense worthy of suspension?
