Jacobs and Gisele are probs not BFFs. (AP)

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.

You may not like her response, but the ay I see it, if you're going to stick a camera in her face at a time like that, while soem low life fans taunt her, you should expect a negative response.

To me, the issue has less to do with her and more to do with the sports media going out of their way to compete with the tabloid trash.  Not to mention a few fans who accomplished nothing that day, acting like they some how share in the glory of a bunch of strangers winning the game.

Wow you are stupid, should I just comment on your real man comment? Can you in your intellegent manner please explain what a beyoth means, I looked it up and couldn't find it. Back to you, after reading your post you seem to have a need for a real man. Sorry dog boy I am straight. Serously did a cheerleader not respond to you when you drooled after she walked by you in front of the Dungeon and Dragon club?

Hey Boston fans since 2001 BOSTON - 4 teams = 7 world championships NEW YORK - 9 teams = 3 world championships Feel. Better. LMAO



It's pretty convienient how you chose the year after the Yankees Dynasty to put up your stats. How about we say from 2012 the NY teams have 1 and the Boston area has 0. See I can manipulate stats too.

So what he will be thirty next year he has 2 superbowl wins and the most touchdowns in giants history by a running back. He can quit tomorrow and his carreer has been better than 85% of the RB in the NFL. Tjhe way he ran in the superbowl didnt seem to soft to me.

loose balls -- you also have a loose tongue.  reread your last post.  makes less sense than gisele's comment.  losing EVERY game proves something?  come on man -- a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Trent dilfer has a ring alot of subpar players have rings , and Brandon Jacobs is a LOSER in life , you don't talk about people the way he does unless you are a lowlife piece of $hit , just like too many of my Jets right now , Cromartie for one the man is a scumbg loser no matter how many titles he might be able to get ,

Brandon Jacobs may not be a great player, but a loser? He has 2 Super Bowl rings.
And for all the people who keep saying the Patriots can't win a Super Bowl since Spygate: At least they are in the Super Bowl. Spygate has nothing to do with anything unless the Patriots lost EVERY game after it. I love how people blame their Super Bowl losses on Spygate.
