Brandon Jacobs Vows To Change, 'Stand Tall' For Giants

One day after venting his frustration following a poor performance during which he was booed at MetLife Stadium, New York Giants’ running back Brandon Jacobs Tuesday vowed “You’re going to see a change.”

Jacobs told reporters at Brooklyn’s Essence middle school, where he made an appearance, that he has spoken to his wife, Kimberly, and several of his teammates.

“I went home and I realized I do want to play this game a little longer. I don’t want to leave,” said Jacobs, who told students he wants to play three more seasons. “I talked to my wife and we’ve got to get it done. This is what I want to do. I had a talk with Deon Grant and Antrel Rolle, I talked to Ahmad (Bradshaw) and a lot of other guys. At the end of the day I’m playing for them. I don’t really care about anything else. I’m playing for them.

“I want to win with them because those are my guys and they’re always going to be my guys and my friends years down the line. So I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do: stand up and stand tall for them.”

In a way, Jacobs sounds much like defensive end Osi Umenyiora who has long been unhappy with team management but puts that aside on the field and plays for his teammates. Whatever happens with him long term, that is what the Giants need Jacobs to do now.
