Brandon Jacobs: 'It’s Up To [The Fans] Whether Or Not They Want To Boo'

Brandon Jacobs is talking again. The Giants meet the Saints on Monday Night Football but the running back is once again talking to the media about the New York fans, not the opposition.

Jacobs has struggled this season, along with the Giants running game in general, which head coach Tom Coughlin called "about as pathetic as it can get" after Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

On Wednesday, Jacobs was back to talking about the boo-birds with WFAN’s Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton:

"It's up to them whether or not they want to boo. And that’s what they do. No, I don't take anything back I said about not caring."

Ed Valentine Responds: "The fans don't WANT to be booing, either."

Jacobs wasn't done with the fans, adding "They’re great when you’re up … and they kick you when you’re down. Right now, I don’t think we’re down. I went them to cheer for us. I want them to be, I want our stadium to be super loud when the offense is out on the field."

Jacobs has been unhappy with Giants fans since getting booed in Week 8 against the Giants. In that game, Jacobs rushed four times for 10 yards, then said after the game: "I've got nothing positive to say. The most positive thing: I got family at home and I got a fast-ass car being delivered on Tuesday. That's it."
