NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Brandon Jacobs is still mad about his time with the San Francisco 49ers.
And that’s the understatement of the century.
The former Giants running back, who recently announced his retirement, called Niners head coach Jim Harbaugh a “b—-” several times Thursday during an interview on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show.
“He is a b—-, and that’s why he’s never won anything,” Jacobs said.
The 49ers, who lost to Baltimore in last year’s Super Bowl, were eliminated by Seattle in Sunday’s NFC Championship game.
Jacobs was drafted by the Giants in 2005, winning two Super Bowl championships in his first seven years.
He signed with San Francisco in 2012 but played in only two games due to injury. The 31-year-old was eventually suspended by the 49ers for a number of social media messages criticizing the team for his lack of playing time.
Jacobs was cut on Dec. 31, 2012 and returned to Big Blue in September.
“I have one regret in my career, and that’s going to the 49ers when I could have stayed in New York,” Jacobs said. “I just wanted to see what stuff was like with another team and it didn’t work out.”
Jacobs said he “wasn’t liked” and it felt as if he was being “held hostage” in San Francisco.
“It is what it is,” he said. “I’ve got two rings. Harbaugh, though, he’s a b—-. So it doesn’t matter.”
All but seven of Jacobs’ career 5,094 rushing yards came with the Giants.
