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.

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

Face it. Gisele eats every three days so maybe she was cranky.  But you NY/Boston rival guys who don't sleep unless your team wins need to relax.  Would it have made any difference if Gisele was throwing slants to Welker and Tommy B was firing off at the mouth?  She was pulling (not pouting) for her man and simply reacted to a loud mouth G-fan who had too many Mountain Dews.  She could have said, "Go back to your 9 an hour job on the docks", but she didn't.  Would that have garnered any other type of reaction?  Sure, maybe she could have had a sandwich and took the elevator to the high road.  The fact that I'm posting on this non-story makes me believe I should pour Jim Beam on my cornflakes.  Let it rest people.

Wes Welker will long be remembered for his achievements in football, than slim will be remembered for being a walking mannequin. It's definitely true, football players have more skill than she could ever hope for. Anyway, this story is really not one and it's getting old. Like slim is.

She was drinking crack from a silver spoon. The same silver spoon she uses to eat Kraft Mayonaise. Which by the way is all she eats. Now there's your mental picture...

Nothin'.. it's just fun to think about. Cool

One could easily turn around the Welker play and instead of saying "If he had only caught it", say "If Tom had only thrown a more catchable ball".  Point is, the "ifs" don't matter. Players make mistakes. Maybe had the player who was supposed to be covering Welker not screwed up and had actually covered him, Brady would not have even thrown the ball his way. We could go on and on. I have to agree with Jacobs - Gisele, just shut up. For those who think Gisele isn't all that great looking, I agree. Mannish nose and a scrawny teenage boy's body.

I am guessing it has been a long time since Gisele was actually cute.  She may have a great body, but she has the face of a hag, and the mouth to match.

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

Did sports only start in 2001 or is that the year you where born, let's try all time I won't Include the Devils or Nets they are true NJ teams.
NEW YORK 7 Teams = 48 World Championships
BOSTON 4 Teams = 33 World Championships
If you want to include the Jersey Teams it's 51

Face it Boston, New York has been out doing you since the revolutionary times. Boston always has and always will be second fiddle.
