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.

if Brady was a man,
If Jacobs were a man he would NEVER find it necessary to engage in and/or encourage in a girl/girl fight. What kind of "man" does that?

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

Hey it's a free country, people can say whatever they want. I personally think Gisele knows as much about american football as most american guys know about the rules of english cricket....hardly anything, so I don't take anything she says seriously, especially involving football. The only thing her comments show is how sore of a loser she is, along w/ Brady for not admitting he CLEARLY overthrew Welker, on a ball that was 2 inches away from being un-catachable. The Pats had another great season, but choked when it counted, no excuses. Now Gisele is just making herself seem like a cry baby. On the flip side, I think Jacobs shouldn't have said anything either; he won the superbowl, so who cares what Gisele says, right?

I would say something to your mom or sister (and later apoligize) just to see your reaction because a girlfriend or wife is out of the question and watch you hide back in mom's room.
You better stick to your girly beyotch hissy fits pal ... you are no match for me or any other real man for that matter.

Brandon Jacobs is such a loser and needs to shut his own mouth. The way he talks and acts, you would think the guy is a feature running back in the NFL. Instead, he is an aging, over-weight, SOFT back with drowning potential. When he isn't throwing his helmet into the stands out of frustration, he complains about his playing time and his role. Now he talks about how he doesn't want this team to break up and has the gall to say something like that about another guy's wife. Jacobs will be 30 next year and probably out of the NFL within 2 years.

if Brady was a man, he'd call Jacobs and demand a public apology to his wife.

Someone go ask Gisele how many SBs the Pats have won post-Spygate and watch her face turn into a prune.

You have to be kidding me RinTinTim (you are named after a dog?) I have read your posts and you are a complete idiot. Can you please leave your Skippy and arse comments to the local bar you frequent. If I was a rude person I would say something to your mom or sister (and later apoligize) just to see your reaction because a girlfriend or wife is out of the question and watch you hide back in mom's room.  When they add the all time moron section to this site just nominate yourself.

Funny how many people are being more critical of an NFL player making a comment relating to football versus some football player's wife being critical of her husband's teammates.  I suspect many models are clueless but what is your excuse?
