    ARTICLE: Brandon Jacobs remains 2 Fast, 2 Furious in New Jersey

    [LINK]http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d828830a3/article/brandon-jacobs-remains-2-fast-2-furious-in-new-jersey?module=HP11_content_stream[/LINK]

    In the New York Giants' locker room after their Super Bowl XLVI victory, Brandon Jacobs approached Eli Manning and jokingly (I think) asked the quarterback to hand over the keys to the Corvette he had received for being named the game's MVP.


    Jacobs told Manning he wouldn't know what to do with a car like that, which -- in the running back's fast-*** world -- probably meant he didn't believe Eli would drive it at an outrageous rate of speed to a well-known gambling mecca.

    From Sunday's edition of The Star-Ledger: "The (New Jersey) State Police are investigating complaints that two troopers escorted a caravan of luxury sports cars at speeds in excess of 100 mph down the Garden State Parkway to Atlantic City last month. The occupants included former Giants running back and sports car enthusiast Brandon Jacobs, according to a source with knowledge of the trip."

    According to the complaint, the cars -- which included Porsches, Lamborghinis, Ferraris and other vehicles -- had black tape over the license plates to avoid being identified by motorists being left in the dust.

    "I had the great pleasure today of nearly being killed by, not one, but two, Lamborghinis traveling in excess of 110 mph in a (New Jersey State Police) escorted 'caravan' of approximately 30 exotic vehicles all traveling well over 100 mph," witness Wayne Gantt wrote in an e-mail complaint to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority.


    Gantt dubbed the escort "Death Race 2012."

    The investigation is ongoing, though something tells us a couple of cops won't get their retirement watches. As for Jacobs, he reportedly took part in this Vin Diesel-esque joyride two days after agreeing to terms on a deal with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Keep this man away from the Golden Gate Bridge.
    Peace,

    Our distraction?? He was never a trouble maker with the Giants and he was a the vocal leader on offense. The guy was nothing but a team player while here. He took a pay cut to keep Bradshaw, he worked hard at practice, did a great job protecting Eli on passing plays and was a huge part of our Super Bowl runs. Again, our distractioin?!?

    The collective short term memories of the "fans" on this board is amazing.

    Agreed! There are a bunch of perfect citizens here on the MB. Nobody here breaks the law. Nobody here has a sports car that they like to drive a little fast sometimes. Nobody texts while driving. And NOBODY on here ever drove home from Giants Stadium after a game when they probably shouldn't have been driving.</P>

    with that said. I think it was reckless of the players and police officers involved in this to put everyone on that Turnpike at risk. they should know better. there are places they can go to race at those speeds if you have the kind of money they have. If you want to go and race 110 120 mph go do it in a secure setting where the only person you can hurt is yourself

    That's one incident. Get over it.

    For every "mistake" Jacobs made like the one you've mentioned above, there's 10 things he's done to make up for it. Nobody is perfect, fella.
