This Brandon Jacobs situation is starting getting out of hand.

Can someone tell me why the player who can't catch a simple screen pass or hold on to a simple hand-off is complaining about his lack of involvement in the offense?

Jacobs production, or lack thereof on the field against the Miami Dolphins last week was a little puzzling to me.

Was it just an off day? Or was it his way of "sticking" it to the G-Men for what he sees as lack of "respect"? 

In cased you missed it, the 29-year-old running back had this to say after the Week 8 win “I’ve got nothing positive to say,” Jacobs said. “The most positive thing: I got family at home and I got a fast-ass car being delivered on Tuesday. That’s it.”

Jacobs is getting old, and he's starting to slow down.

Ahmad Bradshaw is clearly the future of the Giants running game, and his carries, as well as Jacobs knee injury have reflected that. 

With younger Danny Ware and Da'Rel Scott waiting in the wings, the G-Men should consider if they seriously even want Jacobs in their locker room any more.

The Giants have dealt with locker room cancer before in Plaxico Burress and Jeremy Shockey, and it's the last thing they need to deal with now. 

It doesn't matter if he gets dealt this season, or during this offseason but Jacobs needs to be addressed and dealt with ASAP.
