Brandon Jacobs slams Jim Harbaugh: ‘He’s a bitch … It’s not that he was a bitch, he is a bitch’ (audio)
During an appearance on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” on Thursday, recently retired running back Brandon Jacobs set his double-barreled blaster to “bitch” and profanely slammed San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.
Jacobs, who played nine years in the NFL, mostly with the New York Giants, eschewed a more lucrative offer from the Giants to head west, signing a free agent deal with San Francisco before the 2012 season, where he played under the fiery Harbaugh.
Apparently, there is bad blood between the two. Bad, bad blood.
“I have two rings and he don’t,’’ Jacobs said during the radio interview. “He’s a bitch. It’s not that he was a bitch, he is a bitch and that’s why he hasn’t won anything.’’
The relationship between Harbaugh and Jacobs during the running back’s unsuccessful and unproductive tenure with the 49ers was rocky at best. Jacobs only appeared in two games and drew Harbaugh’s ire over his use of social media.
Once the organization and Jacobs reached a point of no return, Jacobs asked for his release, which was not granted. Harbaugh eventually suspended Jacobs for the final three games of the season and Jacobs ultimately was waived by the 49ers on Dec. 31, 2012 and returned for a one-year stint with the Giants before announcing his retirement in January.
Jacobs admitted on Thursday that signing with the 49ers was a big mistake.
“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 for me. I wasn’t liked, to be honest with you. … I thought I was being held hostage because of the previous year. I got two rings, Harbaugh’s a bitch, so it doesn’t matter.’’
But it does matter. Otherwise, Jacobs wouldn’t have taken to the New York radio airwaves and call Harbaugh a bitch. And then call him a bitch again. And then again. And then … you get the point.
