San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs posted a couple of comments on Twitter Thursday that raised a few eyebrows around the league, but the veteran back, who has not had a single carry for his new team, is insisting that the tweets were not about his frustrations with the 49ers organization.

People automatically assume it has something to do with this [expletive] sport,” Jacobs said, via “It’s not. It’s not. I have different companies, and different businesses. I got a life on the outside of football.”

After reporters asked him about the tweets, Jacobs went back on Twitter and wrote that he had actually been talking about his brother’s boss. Here are the tweets in question and you can make your own assumptions.

Have you ever been in a spot and you wonder why are you there.

Never work in a place where you hate your boss so much, you should always be happy at work.#YouLiveAndYouLearn

The second tweet about hating your boss was also re-tweeted by 49ers second-round pick LaMichael James, who has not received a single carry this season either.

The situation seems too coincidental. It's like when you are fighting with a significant other who takes to social media to vent their anger and then tells you to not assume everything is about that.

Jacobs has to be disgruntled about the situation in San Francisco. His days of being an impact back are behind him, but Jacobs surely did not think his role would be what it has been when he signed with the 49ers in the offseason.


What do you think? Are the tweets in fact about Jacobs being disgruntled in his new home and he is now having to cover his tracks?
