New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has no love for Giants fans, and he once again made that clear during an appearance with Boomer & Carton on WFAN Wednesday morning.

"They're great when you're up ... and they kick you when you're down," Jacobs said of Giants fans. "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 and the Giants, of course, heard plenty of boos Sunday night during a disturbin 17-10 loss to Philadelphia in which they gained a puny 29 yards rushing on 17 tries. Jacobs had just 21 yards on 12 carries, though a lot of that was not his fault.

"We don't want to hear that," Jacobs told Boomer & Carton. "We don't want to hear anybody as we're trying to work hard and play and overcome adversity as it is already. And they're making it even harder for us to overcome our adversity when they do things like that."

Well, you know what my response to that is? The fans sitting in MetLife Stadium don't WANT to be booing, either. They don't want to be watching bad football. They don't want to continue watching a team considers itself playoff-caliber lose games to teams they should defeat. They don't want to listen to players talk a good game and play a poor one.

The fans WANT to watch good football. They want to cheer. What the Giants need to do is stop talking to radio stations, stop whining about the fans, stop telling people how good they believe they are. They need to actually go out and the field and prove it.
