On Wednesday, the New York media hounded Giants players for their thoughts on Gisele ripping Patriots wide receivers and pass-catchers. Running back Brandon Jacobs, often known for saying some outlandish things, said Gisele should "be cute and shut up."

NFL Offseason Begins

It was inappropriate, because you never tell another man's wife to "shut up," and Jacobs apologized for it later on Wednesday.

"Given the fact that it's a colleague of mine's wife, I do apologize for saying that, because I shouldn't have said that," Jacobs said Wednesday on The Doug Gottlieb Show. "It's his wife and I should respect that just as much as anyone else."

Jacobs is correct. If he'd said something like "She shouldn't be saying that about his teammates," he would've been lauded for correctly assessing the situation. Using the phrase "shut up" towards another man's wife just isn't something that flies.

As for the "be cute" part of his statement, well, Jacobs isn't apologizing for that.

"No question, he should take that as a compliment," Jacobs said. "If he finds something wrong with that, then that's his problem."

Theoretically, Gisele/Brady could be upset with "cute" since it's not the typical phrase used to describe "one of the most famous supermodels in the world."

Whatever, they got an apology from Jacobs which is a hard thing to do. And something tells us Gisele/Brady will have enough to worry about own on their own without sweating what someone on another team says.

Another story line replete with dumbasses. Jacobs used poor judgment (as so often) and much was made of nothing when it came to Bundchen's comments.

Did she rip Jacobs or the Giants? No!  She said something very stupid in the heat of the moment when people are ripping her husband.  The Patriots WR core can certainly have a beef with it, but they actually have class which is something Jacobs has always lacked.  He's notorious for foot in mouth disease.

So Brady's wife can criticize players of a sport she knows nothing about, but Jacobs can't fire back just because she's Tom's wife?

I don't know which is more bothersome: Jacob's apology for his originally spot-on comments, or the fact he appeared on the Doug Gottlieb Show.

I'm glad he apologized because that's a punk move and not something a real man would do.  You never talk about another man's spouse like that.  Giants and there fans need to just enjoy their fortunate victory and stop trying to relish in other's misfortune when let's face it...how many times can you fumble and win a Super Bowl?!?!?!?  I guess we found out.
