Jacobs: Gisele needs to 'be cute and shut up'

Jacobs and Gisele are probs not BFFs. (AP)
By Will Brinson

It was really only a matter of time until someone on a football team got mad at Gisele Bundchen for her comments about Tom Brady's inability to catch his own bleeping passes. But no one expected it to be a member of the Giants.

Latest NFL News, Notes

It was though -- Brandon Jacobs came out and, according to the New York Post's Brian Costello, had some words for Mrs. Brady.

"She needs to continue to be cute and shut up," Jacobs said, when asked about Gisele's comments.

Soooooo. I guess we know where Jacobs won't ever be playing, huh? Actually, although Jacobs comments are technically "rude," and certainly out of line, it's his delivery -- and not the message -- that needs tweaking. He just could've phrased things better, like his teammate Osi Umenyiora.

"That’s her husband," Umenyiora said. "I mean she’s supposed to stay out of things like that. But at the end of the day that’s their relationship and she has the right to say whatever she wants to."

That's the thing; it's not like this is a "women have their place" issue, although Jacobs makes it sound that way with his comments. It's just a "don't create a rift between your husband the quarterback and the rest of the team by screaming about how bad they suck to fans and reporters" thing.

It doesn't do anyone any good for the wife of the quarterback to come out and take shots at the quarterback's targets, since it really only serves to recreate a scene out of a sports movie. The results are, almost always, a rift between the quarterback and his teammates.

Except there's usually a few more games to sort their issues out and win the big game.

I am not a Giants fan, but you obviously need to get over your Brady man crush.

This seriously has to be the most unimportant, un newsworthy story of all time. Nobody cares. How many players wives stick up for their husbands when fans from the opposing team are heckling them? I have to guess most of them. Why the hell were the cameras even on her. This isn't a story.

  I don't really know what some of you are thinking here, but she should shut up. This isn't an issue for her to be commenting on in public. It's not like Brady was stellar this game, and if it weren't for those receivers performing spectacularly most of the year, the Pats wouldn't have been in the final.

  If she was pointing to the missed catch by Weleker, well, that was a poor throw. It looks like an easy catch in slow motion, but I can tell you from experience that trying  to catch a ball thrown to the wrong side while you are at almost full speed, and the ball coming at a quick pace, is no easy play. Welker did all he could to get in the air and twist his body to a point where he just about made the catch anyway.

  That being said, this reminds me of Kurt Warner's wife when she was in the news saying "we just want to be somewhere where we are going to play and where we are going to start." Well, I understand and applaud all spouses for being supportive, but she was not on the team (nor is Brady's wife) and understands only about as much as her hubby tells her and what she reads in the paper. All that she accomplished was to cause a rift in the locker room, and her comments were not trashing on any other team members. She was WAY offside in her comments and anyone can see that. I am sure Tom told her that when they got home. Our wives don't fully understand the dynamics of a ball club, just as I don't fully understand the dynamics of my wife's job as a nurse, or my 1st wife's job as a lawyer. i would never dream to blip off on the news about any contract issues for my wife's work. I would quietly support her in public, and support her at home, just as I hope she would do for me. 

  Trashing your spouses teammates is stupid, selfish, and actually, downright retarded. The fact of the matter is you do win as a team and lose as a team; that's not just a catchphrase. There are 11 guys on the field at all times (except when the Patriots had 12 that cost them a turnover hahahaha). Brady made plays and he missed plays, just as everyone else on both teams did: end of story. There will be some hard feelings that arise out of this.

Wow some of you continue to pile on Gisile. The girl is only worth a half billion for those of you that call her a headline seeker. You would have thought she played in the game the way the press was all over her. I actually have never seen the press screaming and cussing at Tom Brady, seriously why hasn't anyone here called out the press for the way they were acting towards her? What is up with RimRimTim, you physically threatened another person? You are a dick, get with it there are a lot of people smarter then you and will always make you look stupid online. I have seen you make three threats on this post alone, when are you considered a threat and need to be locked up?

All, Giant or Pats fan it makes no difference.... Jacobs as usual was totally out of touch with reality and humanity...
  It took his own teamate below to put it into context: 
Like his teammate  said. "That’s her husband," Umenyiora said. "I mean she’s supposed to stay out of things like that. But at the end of the day that’s their relationship and she has the right to say whatever she wants to."
