Coughlin doesn't care what Jacobs says

If Giants RB Brandon Jacobs is upset about being a backup, count coach Tom Coughlin as someone who’s not interested in hearing his opinion.

Jacobs Jacobs, after getting just four rushes for eight yards Sunday against the Colts, apparently requested a trade. Coughlin denied that was the case. But he also said that if Jacobs wants more playing time, he needs to act like it on the field.

"That's fine," Coughlin told reporters Monday, including the New York Daily News. "But there's a way to go about that. Go on the field and prove it. Talking about it and constantly bringing this up is not the answer. I know (reporters) enjoy that part of it, but that's not what it's about."

That’s right, it’s about flinging your helmet into the stands.

Oh wait, it’s not about that either.

It’s about wanting a trade, because Jacobs is upset about losing his starting spot to Ahmad Bradshaw, though that’s not likely to happen because Jacobs is in the middle of a $25 million contract. Or it’s about acting like a professional. 

A sample of how he’s NOT doing that. From the Daily News:

He apologized after the game (for the helmet-throwing incident), but when he was asked if he was taken out of the game for that incident, Jacobs cursed at a reporter. One week earlier, he had snapped at another reporter for asking if he and Bradshaw needed to put their egos aside to co-exist. And that came two weeks after he said "it's hard to stay positive" in a backup role.

Monday, all Jacobs would say was, "I ain't talking to nobody," as he hurried through the locker room, leaving teammates to deal with the fallout from his latest controversy. Bradshaw, as he hurried to his car, insisted that Jacobs "isn't looking to be traded. ... Something got out there that wasn't right. I don't think he at all meant that he was trying to go anywhere else."
Either way, Coughlin isn’t interested in hearing about Jacobs’ bitchfest any longer.

But I wonder if Coughlin will care what S Antrell Rolle has to say about the way New York prepared for its game with Indianapolis.

“Things have to change," Rolle ranted on WFAN this afternoon. "If you want a winning team. If you want a team that has a competitive attitude and to have that dog mentality sometimes you have to let that team be a dog. Everything can’t be controlled. And right now everything is controlled within this organization. Everything is controlled.”
