JACOBS BELIEVES HE'S JOINED A WINNER IN SAN FRANCISCO (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d82826778/article/jacobs-believes-hes-joined-a-winner-in-san-francisco)

"The New York Giants (/teams/newyorkgiants/profile?team=NYG) have moved on
from Brandon Jacobs (/players/brandonjacobs/profile?id=JAC705688), unwilling
to pay money to a running back who <a id="yui_3_4_1_2_1333839683218_902" href="http://www.nfl.com/goto?id=09000d5d827ed42c" target="_blank">lacked the
power and ferocity</a> of his earlier playing days.


Now a member of the San Francisco 49ers (/teams/sanfrancisco49ers/profile?team=SF), the
two-time Super Bowl winner is realistic about where he fits into the lineup --
behind the productive Frank Gore (/players/frankgore/profile?id=GOR411171), without question
-- and is willing to help where coach Jim Harbaugh sees fit.</p>

"All that part will work itself out. As far as competing, that will make
everyone of us better," Jacobs told the team's official website (http://www.49ers.com/news-and-events/article-2/Brandon-Jacobs-Joins-the-49ers/15dec2bc-bff9-417d-afc9-b04abe54fdff), after signing his one-year
contract Friday. "It makes us better as a team, it makes us better at our job.
I'm looking forward to the opportunity of playing with Frank."</p>


Jacobs also spoke about reuniting with 49ers receiver Mario Manningham (/players/mariomanningham/profile?id=MAN547041), one
of the heroes of Super Bowl XLVI who was plucked from the Giants this offseason
through free agency.</p>


Jacobs will turn 30 before next season, and will battle Kendall Hunter (/players/kendallhunter/profile?id=HUN719158) for time
in an offense that appeared content to feed Gore repeatedly in 2011. Jacobs grew
up a 49ers fan and talked about a connection with team brass, who showed more
interest than any other team in continuing his career.</p>


"It's a good football team and really close," Jacobs said. "And I felt
wanted. I felt they really wanted me around and I was excited about it."</p>


Jacobs' one-year deal doesn't show tremendous faith from the 49ers, but
undoubtedly they are attracted to his playoff experience (and possibly his
knowledge of the Giants' offense). The 49ers came close enough to the Super Bowl
last season that adding a veteran like Jacobs makes some sense in April. Time
will tell if it makes sense come September."</p></div>

So where can I find that part of the interview?

Jacobs believing he joined a winner is not exactly news being they were one game away from the Superb Owl last season.

Oh really he thinks he joined a winner?


Nothing new. San Fran 49ers are winners at the moment. One game away from the superbowl is not bad.

Why can't we just be happy for the guy? He's got a job.
