Bonehead of the Week No. 1, Brandon Jacobs.
This guy has deserved this honor more than one time this season.
This guy is a player who two seasons ago was running with Earth, Wind & Fire when he proudly proclaimed:
"I feel good about it," Jacobs said. "I feel so good about it. I knew it wasn't going to be a problem. We all know we can go out and contribute, but we don't play for ourselves. We play for our team."
Yeah, right! Thanks for that, Mr. Jacobs.
Jacobs said these words in 2008 when Derrick Ward was still playing for the Giants. But the question I have for Jacobs is, what has happened so dramatically that you are now known as the team head case? Bradshaw is still with you, and you have two-thirds of Earth, Wind & Fire. So what is up?
What is up is that Bradshaw now is the main focal point of the running game, more so then Jacobs. Times have changed. But here is the thing, if he used his head, his value could be through the roof. Yet his head isn’t the game.
First, the nonsense of him throwing his shoulder pads in the stands. Now his latest antics in Philly where EVERYONE, even players for the Eagles, is fair game to draw the ridicule of the fans on any given Sunday or Monday.
Ohhh yeah, flipping the bird, and yelling obscenities towards fans in the stands at the end of pregame warm-ups is going to help. Just wait until next time you are there, if there is a next time for you.
OK, so you aren't the No. 1 running back on the team. Your power in short-yardage and goal-line calls, however, can make you a lot of money in the NFL. You’re choosing to throw it all away with some stupid acts that—if you were not in the NFL—could have gotten you arrested before this latest nonsense in Philly.
Go back and look at life before the NFL, and think of how life would be without the NFL, and get it though your head, it is a team sport, as you ohhhh so proudly spoke up and said in 2008.
Bonehead of the Week, times two.
