Jacobs in Nasty Mood Leaving Giants Locker Room
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: January 3, 2011


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs was in a nasty mood leaving the locker room after packing his belongings on Monday.

Carrying a plastic garbage bag, Jacobs was walking to the exit when photographers and writers tried to ask him a few questions about the end of the season. Instead of stopping, Jacobs scowled.

"Click. Click. Click," he said sarcastically, making the sound of a picture being taken.

Jacobs then told everyone in ear shot that they must be wondering whether this is the last time they will be seeing the big running back in the locker room. Jacobs then uttered an expletive and left.

Jacobs rushed for 823 yards on 147 carries, a 5.6 yard average. He scored nine touchdowns. However, he had a difficult season. He lost his starting job to Ahmad Bradshaw in training camp and didn't get it back until Bradshaw had trouble with fumbles more than halfway through the season. Even when Jacobs was the starter, though, Bradshaw still received more carries.

Bradshaw, who will be a free agent, led the team with 1,235 yards rushing on 276 carries, a 4.5 yard average.

If there is a 2011 season, it's unclear whether Jacobs or Bradshaw will be in the backfield. If they are, though, they might be able to do some damage, at least at home.

The Giants, who take a 10-6 mark into the offseason, can begin plans for their next schedule, and that slate will have home games vs. Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington, St. Louis, Seattle, Green Bay, Buffalo and Miami. Only the Eagles, Seahawks and Packers, on that list, made this year's postseason.

On the road, New York will meet Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington, Arizona, San Francisco, New Orleans, New England and the Jets, which, of course, will host the Giants in New Meadowlands Stadium.

It is becoming obvious it is time for Jacobs and the Giants to part ways, it isn't a healthy situation. Jacobs attitude is a real issue, not unlike Shockey towards the end.

I think Jacobs will be offered for Trade, his value is probably around a 3rd round pick. I could see teams like New England and Green Bay being very interested.

This article doesn't really state why he was pissed.

Is it because he doesn't want to come back to NY? Or mad from missing the play-offs? Or just mad at all the stupid media questions that he has to answer?

True, but you also have to look at this on top of his comments about wanting to play for Green Bay last week

and also the Helmet incident

I think Jacobs has issues bubbling away
