Brandon Jacobs doesn't care if you never believed in the Giants. (US PRESSWIRE)

Posted by Ryan Wilson

Not many people outside of New York figured the battered Giants stood much of a chance Sunday against the self-anointed Dream Team, division rival Philadelphia. So naturally, the Giants jumped out to a 14-0 first-quarter lead and won going away, 29-16.

The Eagles looked more like the Washington Generals, and quarterback Michael Vick was forced from the game with a bruised hand and plenty to say about the state of NFL officiating.

Meanwhile, the Giants, now 2-1, are tied with the Cowboys and Redskins for the best record in the NFC East. (The Dream Team is 1-2.) And New York running back Brandon Jacobs has a few words for the doubters.

"The people outside that want to say they're fans and don't believe in us, I couldn't care less if they ever believed in us," Jacobs said, according to the New York Daily News. "They don't mean anything to us if they didn't believe in us. They can go back and finish living their miserable lives as they've been living and hoping that they lose and whatever."

Jacobs, who has a reputation as something of a hot head, wasn't finished. "In this locker room, guys are ready to play," he said. "And I look in a lot of guys' eyes and see that they're ready to go ... The only thing that matters is the people that's on this football team and in this organization."

In less incendiary news, the Giants could have Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck in the lineup against the Cardinals Sunday. Umenyiora hasn't yet played this season after undergoing knee surgery during training camp, and Tuck has missed practice this week because of groin and neck issues. Head coach Tom Coughlin said he was "optimistic" about Tuck's availability in Arizona, though, in regards to Umenyiora, would only allow that “We’re going to have to watch and see how he comes back.” 

One thing's for certain, however: Jacobs doesn't care what you think.

More to my OPTION Statement.

Average Length of TD (Rushing = 5.5 YDS) 
Average Length of TD (REC = 24 YDS)

Just food for thought...

He is a bruiser and a goal line option.
That must be why they always pull him out near the goal line???

Love the fire and attitude from Jacobs. When you say someon was horrible on defense that is just haters not willing to accept that the offense was clicking. Philly wide receivers can't break tackles. Everytime a defender is near Jackson or Maclin, they drop to the turf so fast I think they are sliding into second in a baseball game. Keep bringing the attitude and anger Jacobs, playing with a chip on their shoulders can only help a player.

mrrickers, let's not go over the top acting like ESPN was the only place where the Giants were expected to lose.  Four of the five "experts" here at CBS Sports picked the Eagles (Mike Freeman was the lone exception).  And the boys in Vegas installed the Eagles as a touchdown favorite in the middle of the week when it seemed to be settled that Vick was starting.

Face it -- other than the most die hard of Giant fans & biggest Eagle haters, the vast majority had the G-men losing last week before the game was played.  The Giants did not have an exceptional game plan to beat the Eagles.  The Giants simply played well while the Eagle defense was terrible.  Vick looked completely lost throughout that game.  That's not to say the Eagles will win next time by learning from their mistakes if Vick has a clear head.  The Giants under Tom Coughlin always find a way to pick off at least one game where the world leaves them for dead.  It's happened every year since he came to town.  On the flip side, they almost always lose a game they have no business losing every season as well.
