As we all know by now, New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs loves to talk trash. When you're able to back it up on the field as he does, anyone is fair game.

So it should come as no surprise to hear that he was walking all over Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo this morning during an appearance on 1050 ESPN Radio.

"I don't think he's that good a passer, to be honest with you," Jacobs said of Romo. "His luck will be gone sooner or later. If you were to keep [him] in the pocket, he's not that effective."

There will undoubtedly be a handful of fans annoyed with Jacobs' comments, but in context, he was just answering some questions honestly. Sure, Mr. Simpson will probably use it as bulletin board material, but it won't do him any good.

I find this kind of banter—especially during such a slow time—to be extremely entertaining. And if you're going to talk trash, why not take it right to the biggest name in the NFC East?

"I'm not a fan of Tony Romo, no," Jacobs added.

It's probably safe to say most, if not all, Giants fans are right there with Jacobs. Romo is over-hyped and constantly cracks under pressure. He can put up solid numbers all year long, but when it comes time to win one for his team, he's nowhere to be found—much like his girlfriend's brain.

That said, as much as I dislike Romo as a player, you've got to give the man props for what he does off the field. He appears to be a model citizen and genuinely good guy, and there's something to be said about that.

Still, he has a face you'd just like to slap.
