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.

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

loose balls -- let me expand on my post-Spygate comment:

during Spygate, Pats were 12-2 in the playoffs

post-Spygate, Pats are 4-4 in the playoffs

If nothing else, at least you now know why Belichick continued to cheat over a 7-year period, as confirmed by Goodell himself.  it doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that Spygate gave the Pats an edge in making the playoffs and then winning during the playoffs.  the only question is how big an edge.  here we are five years post-Spygate with Brady supposedly in his prime and the Pats can't deliver the Lombardi Trophy.  Bottom line -- it's tough to win a SB, and that's why about half the league has never won one.  At this point, you can easily argue that the Pats would never have one a SB w/o Spygate.  In fact, they have proven precisely that over a nearly 40-year period (i.e., pre and post-Spygate)!

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

Gisele's comments make as much sense as Tom Brady bitching during an Oleg Cassini modeling shoot.  She has no clue what she's talking about.  Brady made three absolutely horrendous passes in a row at one point, and dumping all of this BS on Wes Welker is ridiculous. Eli was clearly the better quarterback that night, and the best team definitely won.  Hopefully, Brady is pissed and giving her the silent treatment.

Brandon Jacobs is a hack anyway.  I don't even know why the Gmen keep him around.  He is subpar at best.
This no talent, overpaid, has-been just can't seem to keep his own mouth shut most of the time.  So he is sure one to talk.

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

I find Gisele to be extemely overrated in the looks department.I don't want a woman who ways 90 pounds and never eats.give me a stacked woman like Christina Hendricks anyday of the week.As for Brandon Jacobs what do you expect? He attended Auburn university.If you ever watched most of their players they have a hard time not sounding like a special ed student.

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

and the athlete now becoming best known for talking garbage in response to those he thinks are takling too much garbage strikes again. Now Jacobs has taken a comment made by a wife of another team's quarterback about that quarterback's receiving core, not even the team Jacobs play for and is acting like he was the one insulted and issues an unwarranted comment that is basically sexist and unnecessary.

I don't see Jacobs' defense of Brady's receiving core here, which is one the original comment (fairly or unfairly) was directed at. I don't even see Jacobs' reference towards defending NFL players at all: it's just Jacobs choosing to open mouth for press and insert foot.

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

Without all the makeup, airbrushing and professional photography tricks Gizele Bundchen is not really all that.

Do not get me wrong she is not a dog or average but she is not stunning.  She is slightly manish or boyish looking but that's probably what attracted Tom Brady.

Who cares what she said and what she said is true.  Tom can not throw passes to himself.

Jacobs just wanted some headlines and airtime.  What a clown he is.

Maybe Gisele should take a look at that wobbly-ass Hail Mary Tommy-Boy threw up.

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

Gisele can say whatever she wants about her hubby, Tom Brady. I can understand why she said what she said, even if I don't think it was all that smart of her to do so. What I don't get is why anybody reported what she said. Who cares? She's the wife of a football player and they quote her about how his teammates did? Who the heck cares what she has to say about football? I don't. So stop telling me!
