New York Giants 2012 Offseason: Brandon Jacobs Takes Jab At Former Offensive Line

Former New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has never been afraid to open his mouth in front of a microphone, and he was up to his old tricks once again during a Wednesday radio interview with KNBR-AM in San Francisco, when he made noteworthy remarks about some former Giants teammates of his.

"No one's perfect -- somebody's gonna get a step on you at some point somewhere and you're not gonna be perfect. Because we had issues. When I was with the Giants, we had issues down the line. Of course, I took the blame for those (because I was) holding the ball. But ultimately, at the end of the day it is my fault because I do have the ball and that's what people see. But there's a lot more than that going on."

So it's not exactly a low-blow, but it's yet another example of an athlete willing to absolve himself of at least some of his shortcomings by displacing blame on others.

Surely the Giants aren't a team that needs motivation to prime themselves for a big game, but if they and San Francisco meet down the line on another monumental stage (they squared off in last year's NFC Championship game, you may remember), rest assured Jacobs' comments will be re-posted somewhere near the New York offensive line meeting room.
