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

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.

japerry75; If you think he's an internet tuff guy, then why do you waste your time responding.  I aint 6'5" and 280, but I am a Retired Marine Tuff Guy for REAL and I don't need to tell anyone about that, cause chances are they won't venture to Camp Lejeune, NC to find out although I would certainly welcome that.  The majority of the people out here flex cyber muscles cause they have not been there, done that and most defintely have NO T SHIRTS!

I agree that this story is getting stale, but I have to say that for once, I agree with Brandon Jacobs smack talk. The blond bomb shell needs to shut up. No one cares what a preachy hag has to say. Now if it was Adriana Lima doing the talking, I' d pay attention to her everytime

Seriously, in low lighting, don't you think Gisele looks like Brady with a wig.  Can definitely see why these two ended up together.

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

Jacobs says Gisele needs to be cute and shut up.  How about just shut up and run the ball hard.  Even the great Jerry Rice said he's one of the softest players in the NFL. He just won the Super Bowl and he's attacking a mans wife for defending her husband.  Win with some class you ape!  This guy plays like a person who's 5'10 175 pounds soaking wet.  Plain and simple this guy is  S-O-F-T , SOFFFFTTTT!!  With the size he has anyone can fall over a yard and get a touchdown.  Not impressed by this guys running style at all and Im sure his peers feel the same way.  Or he wouldn't be a backup to a midget back who has more tenacity and aggression than this chump.

Gisele needs to continue to be cute and shut up, and Jacobs needs to continue to carry Bradshaw's jock and shut up.
