    Ex-Giant News: Jacobs Suspended

    Say what ya want.....I love this guy.

    Brandon Jacobs suspended for rest of regular season after saying he's ‘rotting away’ with San Francisco 49ers

    Ex-Giants running back takes to social media to vent about frustrations in San Francisco. In recent days, he posted a series of photos of himself playing for the Giants — and even a picture of his two Super Bowl championship rings, side by side.

    Brandon Jacobs will finish the season with just five carries for seven yards for San Francisco.

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The San Francisco 49ers suspended running back Brandon Jacobs on Monday for the final three games following a series of posts on social media sites addressing his lack of playing time, including one during the weekend saying he was "on this team rotting away."

    The 49ers made the announcement about two hours after coach Jim Harbaugh's news conference, but provided no explanation for why Jacobs had been disciplined. It is doubtful he would return for the playoffs.

    Harbaugh declined to address Jacobs' comments, even when asked whether Jacobs was still on the team. He said he was invoking his "fifth amendment" right.

    The 30-year-old Jacobs has five carries for 7 yards while playing in only two games with the NFC West-leading Niners (9-3-1). He spent his first seven NFL seasons with the New York Giants and has called this his "worst" year — though he knew he was joining a crowded backfield that features three-time Pro Bowler Frank Gore as one of the faces of the franchise.

    In recent days, he posted a series of photos of himself playing for the Giants — and even a picture of his two Super Bowl championship rings, side by side.

    "I am on this team rotting away so why would I wanna put any pics up of anything that say niners," Jacobs said in an Instagram post Saturday. "This is by far the worst year I ever had, I'll tell you like I told plenty others."

    On Twitter later, Jacobs said: "I don't understand why people are angry at me because I wanna do what I am paid to do, I am a competitive person, I think people should be mad if I didn't wanna play. ... As for all of my Instagram photos I don't have any niner pics, if you'll find me some pics I'll put them up."

    Jacobs, hampered by a left knee injury earlier this season, spends approximately 20 minutes before games punching the goal-post padding. He has said it is his way of dealing with the situation.

    Last month, Jacobs posted advice on Twitter with a reference to never working "in a place where you hate your boss so much, you should always be happy at work" with a hash tag of "YouLiveAndYouLearn."

    His post came the same day Harbaugh was hospitalized for a minor procedure for an irregular heartbeat.

    Jacobs then said people shouldn't "assume" his remarks were football-related, then followed up with more tweets — including one reading "football is not my life, people" and another saying, "Have you ever been in a spot and you wonder why are you there."

    Later, he posted that his tweets referred to his brother's boss, who makes "him feel like he is the best thing since slice bread but when the budget is shot he is the first one get laid off, same with two other people I know."

    Jacobs ran for 571 yards and seven touchdowns last season with New York as a backup to Ahmad Bradshaw. He is the fourth-leading rusher in franchise history with 4,849 yards, but saw his role diminish with the emergence of Bradshaw and became increasingly disgruntled.

    I also saw a link..on twitter. That jacobs said he will only play for one team now.

    New york giants.

    Not sure if they'd take him back, or if they even have a spot for him at the end of this year.

    Please take him back <3

    Bradshaw is always banged up and having Jacobs and Wilson could keep him fresh

    Can they just let him go so we can have him back? Bradshaw is so banged up and we need a guy to carry the load. Still have faith in Jacobs!

    Correct me if im wrong but when Jacobs file for greviance ...he can be released and at that time he can sign with another team?

    I would have taken him back, but he would be our 3rd back anyway.

    It would be nice to have the depth though.

    Well now there's something wrong with Bradshaw's knee.. As much as I like Wilson he is not physically or mentally ready to carry the load.. Jacobs would be huge for us right now, OBVIOUSLY knows the offense and could really allow us to rest and save Bradshaw..

    Don't matter though, SF is being classless about it so he'll just be stuck there..

    It's San Fran. One of the most classless teams in the NFL, what do you expect? This is the team who's fans tried saying Jacobs turned the playbook over to the Giants after they got stomped out by the Giants in Week 6. The same team who's TE Vernon Davis planned his Superbowl party last year and now hasn't done ANYTHING all year. Bennet has better numbers now. Biggest joke of a team over there.

    love him and i'd take him back, but he does act childish and he's paying for it. i see nothing wrong with the way its being handled. not "classless" at all. jacobs is immature. treat kids like kids. he's getting his timeout.
