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'

She is far from hot....and her face looked pretty damn hideous to me
She is a heck of a lot hotter than Brandon Jacobs is. But hey, if you roll that way, I don't have a problem with it.

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

Jacobs is a dope. If there is anyone who needs to shut up it's him. Sexist much?? Obviously the issue here is that Gisele should know better than to drive a wedge between teammates. I would imagine that her and Tom have talked about this. My guess is that it was a heat of the moment thing and she would take it back if she could. Brandon Jacobs needs to worry about his personal health and fitness and stop worrying about what other people are saying. Particularly when they aren't talking about, or to him.

The other thing that we need to remember about her is that she is a major, major worldwide star. She is not used to having people tell her what to do or what to say. Additionally, she could buy and sell Brandon Jacobs, Eli, her husband, and many NFL franchises a couple of times over. Again, I don't think she would say it again if she had a chance to think about it. Everyone needs to move on.

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

Anyone bringing up spygate is just simply not a football fan. 

If you understand the game, you understand that getting to two Superbowls and winning the division multiple times (not to mention to the insane offensive numbers they've put up) after spygate proves that they are doing just fine on offense (THEY ACTUALLY HAVE A BETTER OFFENSE) after that whole deal.

As for losing two Superbowls, there are a lot of teams that wish they could have even sniffed two Super Bowl appearances in that time (or even one).  It's like people saying that Buffalo was a bad team because they lost 4 in a row...   You don't get to the Super bowl unless you are a very good team. 

Look at the Rams team that lost to the Pat's...  Did they suck, or did a great team lose a close game???

Hey NYYankee38  do you have a wife?  I would love to see what your idea of hot is since Giselle is so ugly.

I think Osi said it best.  She is only defending her husband.  I am sure some of you guys out there hating on her right now have a wife that would back you up.  Just because she is hot and a supermodel does not mean she cant.  She was baited over and over with foul language from Giants fans.  Classy by the way.  She finally reached her breaking point.  We all say things we wish could be taken back at one point or another.  I am sure Jacobs will be doing just that here soon.  He wont even be a Giant next season.  He needs to shut his trap and concentrate on finding a new team.  Cant anybody just win gracefully anymore?

Never was a big fan of Brandon Jacobs.  Sure, he converted a 4th and 1 on "the drive" in superbowl 42, but he always seem to under perform and run his mouth all the time.  I still remember his pathetic performance vs the eagles this past season.  Last thing I want on my team is another Rex Ryan.

I see nothing wrong with the Jacobs comments especially coming from an ignorant dude. He has continued his half witted casue of being a loudmouth, anager management issues and who knows what else behind close doors. I imagine he won't be a NYG player much longer. Fullbacks that are slow, kind of dumb and not very good last only a couple of years. He is mostly practice fodder.

Loose balls, they only bring up the spygate thing as an act of jealousy and to try and push the emotional fans buttons. I stopped paying attention to it because as you said, the Pats have continued to win and crush teams since the incident. That issue is dead and only an idiot would argue that the Patriots are nothing without cheating and that Bellichek isn't a great coach without "cheating"

Just ignore the comments, the lonely, sad, and probably handicapped person on the other end of the comment probably can't keep up with an intelligent conversation anyways. so just ignore them. My best advice.

It's a good thing Gisele is not a Packers fan, she would've killed somebody after their 8 drops vs. the Giants. She should count herself lucky it was only 3 or 4. And BTW, the "drop" by Welker was Brady's fault, Welker was wide open and Brady threw it high and behind him. Sure, maybe he makes those plays most of the time, but it's still Brady's problem in that case. It's almost like no one wants to blame Brady for anything, when he actually had a subpar game himself as well.

A better use of Gisele's time would be to advise Belicheck on his wardrobe - can someone tell this guy that gray sweatshirts are not a mandatory outfit for all football games?
