Giants’ Brandon Jacobs: ‘I Don’t Care About Being Booed’

NEW YORK (WFAN) — Brandon Jacobs has a message for fans: go ahead, jeer away.

The unhappy Giants running back, who recently expressed his woes in a well-publicized interview with Men’s Fitness, was booed mercilessly during each of his limited touches on Sunday.

Fans at MetLife Stadium likely weren’t happy with Jacobs admitting his willingness to walk away from New York once his contract expires.

He didn’t do much to help his cause after the game, telling reporters he had “nothing positive” to say despite the Giants’ 20-17 win over Miami.

“As long as the players I’m playing (with), my teammates, my brothers (get it), that’s what I care about,” Jacobs said Tuesday at PS 190 in Brooklyn, appearing for an NFL Play 60 event. “I don’t care about being booed. I don’t care about anybody else, to be honest with you.”

He added: “I don’t care if they cheer for me another day. They could boo me every day. But they should boo when I’m about to start scoring these touchdowns as well.”

Jacobs got only four carries for 10 yards against the Dolphins — but he heard it from the crowd alright. Especially after his first series, which included a fumble and a dropped pass.

“Sunday is not even in my mind any longer,” said Jacobs. “Things didn’t go well for me because I’m not happy. But I’m going to try and do the best I can. I’ll give my teammates 100 percent effort and try to win some games, and whatever happens, happens.”

So if he’s not playing for the fans, who is he suiting up for?

“I talked to Ahmad (Bradshaw) and a lot of other guys, and at the end of the day I’m playing for them,” said Jacobs. “I don’t really care about nothing else. I’m playing for them, I wanna win for them because (they are) my guys and they’re always going to be my guys, years down the line. So I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do to stand up and stand tall for them.”

    This is Tiki number 2, sealing himself in and walling himself off. It didn’t end well for Tiki. It won’t end well for Brandon, either. Very sad

    Jacobs, is a 260lb disappoint for all his bulk, he plays with no heart. He probably won’t play with a hang nail. His frustration is that he thinks he is better than he is and doesn’t play to the hype. Additional by substraction, produce or sit on the bench you under achieving BUM!!

    Hi Brandon,

    Try to remember when doing interviews that (as the late and great wellington mara always did) that the ….”doubters” …are the same people that put the great $$$ into your pocket not you. Why not be honest. You love the fans, the greatest in the world, that of course you want to do well for them and never get hurt and carry 30 times a game and be all world etc., and that your sorry if you are not pleasing everyone but your giving your heart and sole to the team and to the fans and that you only want to do well for them. People would love you big dog! Use the brain god gave you man! Go Gmen! Beat the Pats Sunday! Go Big Blue!!! P.S. I would love to see you get 30 carries a game but the NFL unfortunately is mobing away from the running game so they can get more commericals in. Fans hate that not you. Love! Peace!


    He is a bum. The fans had a right to boo him for his comments last week. He gets paid big money to play a game not to talk. So shut up and play. Play well and maybe you will get another team to sign you. I can’t wait for you to get off this team because you are not a team player.

    Brandon can walk away from New York right now. Considering the way he’s been playing it wouldn’t make a bit of difference. For all of the talent he’s supposed to have he’s demonstrated very little.
