Should Brandon be pissed? or should he really just not make a scene about it and handle it the right way and that means to talk it over with TC and/or JR...
[Late UPDATE: Nothing more to rant about... link here: Coughlin and Jacobs kissed and made up...]
Been a proud BBVer for about a year now...so figured might as well get my first FanPost. I ran into this article from Ohm at ESPN-NewYork and I seriously am a bit concerned regarding Jacobs current attitude. I hope it does not create any internal issues. I am on the fence regarding how he is taking the whole thing, right now, b/c I'm sure I have no clue of what happens on the inside - that could very well have helped him to come to think this way.
And quite frankly, the way I feel about it, I also think that Bradshaw has earned the starting job. Yes, Jacobs had a down year and most likely due to injury - but just because he had a nice contract extension ($$$) does not guarantee him to be a starter. If I have one thing to say to Jacobs, it's - "if you know that's how the NFL is, then that's how it is, but why be so negative, after all, it is a what have you done for me lately league. And even you should know that...I think if he wants to return to form and be the number 1 back, then he has to show and prove and keep your mouth shut. It never helps to bring your discontent to the media".
He also may be just pissed at the way it was communicated (or not communicated) to him. But he should also know this isn't a hand me a job type of team, it's an earn it every game/season thing. I mean after all, TC and JR has said it more times than none, that they are always looking for healthy competition and for others to step up. Bradshaw in my opinion is doing that...Jacobs is doing okay and is right to be upset (in losing his starting position), but show and prove and try to earn it back instead of this.
