  • To everyone happy the Giants cut Jacobs because he was getting too much money

    According to what has been reported, he was willing to take a pay cut from 5 million to 2 million a year, the Giants were willing to only offer a 1.5 million contract with incentives. Just to clear that up.

    Anyways, $500,000 seems kind of petty on the front office, considering what Jacobs brought to the table physically, and Bradshaw's lack of durability.

    Fact is, they never wanted him back. They are going in a different direction. Its the business side of the game. Players come and go, but the Ginats will always be here for us!
    Players come and go on the Free Agency Merry-Go-Round, but the N.Y. Giants will always be here!

      Don't know why anyone would be "happy" about BJ leaving . . . he provided some great Giants moments and was a big part of 2 championship teams. From a business perspective, it was probably time for him to go, but that doesn't mean that anyone should be "happy" about it.




      I got on him for his big mouth and his inability to convert short yardage situations, but he will be remembered as a good, tough Giant . . . .

        I can never put 500k and petty in the same sentence.

          Hard to criticize Reese, but BJ was worth $2M.

          He had a big mouth, but when he trashed Rex Ryan after beating the Jets, that was vintage BJ. Hard to replace.

              [/quote]this is not a personal attack on jacobs from the FO and not even the fans...the general consensus is that he was preventing us to sign or retain players that can make an impact on our 2012 season and his numbers over the last 2 seasons did not justify Brandons cause. He is a player with declining skills, with just enough fire in his belly to make a few decent plays but nothing consistant and we need consistancy at RB, LB, TE and OL...its the team we root for ultimately, not the player

                  When given the carries, he produced. 12/11 at Dallas, which started the 8 game winning streak, he had 19 carries for 101 yards and 2 TD's. Who else on the free agent market is going to give you that performance for 2 million, not to mention his intangibles? Stupid move by the front office not resigning him for 2 million. Yet they pay mediocre Baas 27 million for 5 years, mediocre Canty 42 million for 6 years, and mediocre Rolle 37 million for 5 years.

                    He left on good terms, I'm happy/nothappy that's gone.


                    I love BJ (see what i did there) and hope he does well somewhere else

                      Seems equally petty of Jacobs considering he couldn't pick up a 3rd and 1 to save his life. He'd move down $3,000,000 but not $3,500,000.

                      He's finished, move on. He will be remembered fondly (including by me) but he was long past his peak and RBs are a dime a dozen.

The only thing that declined was the OL, witness BJ and AB's ypc avg. the previous year and this year. I suspect the reason Brandon didn't accept the 1.5 mil with incentives, is that KG under utilizes him and he would not get enough carries/playing time to reach those incentives. There will be many teams willing to pay 2 mil for a unique back like BJ.

                            You couldn't have put it better, Jacobs was the emotional leader on offensive. When he pancaked a player the Defensive got fired up the team got fired up. But I don't think the difference was 500K. According to everything I read and heard there was a big gap between the Giants and Jacobs. You know the organization is not going to lose him over 500k. I would ask Canty , Rolle and Baas to take a pay cut or Bye Bye!!

                              [/quote]How true. He was an outstanding blocker and even though he couldn't pick up as many yards as when he was younger, he still delivered punishing hits to the defenders. He was a victim of the salary cap but he is a true Giant. Will never forget when he carried the SB trophy around the stadium so the fans can see it and touch it up close. It is sad that he had to go, but now it is time to make room for the young ones to see what they can do.
