    JACOBS SAYS HE LEFT GIANTS OVER SMALL MONEY DISPUTE

    Its a shame his career ended here over a small money dispute. Here is the article.

    BRANDON JACOBS SAYS REASON FOR LEAVING GIANTS 'WAS JUST MONEY'
    Published: Thursday, July 12, 2012, 11:00 AM Updated: Thursday, July 12, 2012, 11:19 AM
    By Jorge Castillo/The Star-Ledger

    After seven seasons with the Giants, Brandon Jacobs said he didn't return because he and the team were "a couple hundred thousand" dollars apart.
    When the Giants released Brandon Jacobs in early March just before he was due a $500,000 roster bonus, they didn't necessarily want to cut ties for good. Up until the end, the Giants thought bringing Brandon Jacobs back was a "possibility" -- at the right price. But ultimately, Jacobs joined Mario Manningham and signed a one-year deal with San Francisco a month later.
    Last night, Jacobs told Jim Rome on CBS Network's show "ROME" that the reason he didn't remain a Giant was simple.
    "It was just money, thatís all it was, a couple hundred thousand [dollars]," Jacobs told Rome.
    Asked if it was "just a couple hundred thousand bucks" then why didn't they want him back, Jacobs replied, "You would think so."
    Jacobs, who was in Los Angeles with some of his former teammates last night for the ESPYs, is set to make at least $1.575 million this season plus incentives, which could bring the total to $2 million.
    Jacobs played seven seasons with the Giants and rushed for 571 yards and seven touchdowns last season. He averaged just 3.8 yards per carry and the yard total was his fewest since 2006.
    Without him in the fold, the Giants used their first-round pick on David Wilson.

    Sad to see it end that way, but we really did need to part ways with Jacobs, he hasn't been the Jacobs we remember for years.

    And now we've got David Wilson to play with... Onward and upward.

    Chances are he will be one and done with San Francisco and he will come back and retire as a Giant. Best of luck to him this year except when they play us.

    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    This all may be true. But Brandon Jacobs was a great Giant. And I loved rooting for him for all these years. That kid brought real attitude to our offense.

I also believe he should make every nickle he can since his career is obviously winding down. Iwish him nothing but the best. Go Blue!!
    No one remembers who came in second.

    Funny that BJ thinks it was all about the money and not his deminished skills that was the reason we "didn't want him back".




    You got got 2 rings here, BJ, and we will always love you for that......but there comes a time, especially with RB, when you aren't what you once were. Don't be bitter, it's just business.

    Just so I'm clear, BJ was a great Giant, I'm not dissing him at all. #27 will always mean Rodney Hampton to me but Jacobs will be 27a.

    Great teammate and leader despite his temper and mouth... Great Giant... Sad to see it end but all good things do.
