Richard Sherman and Brandon Jacobs have something in common

Brandon Jacobs 49ers

Brandon Jacobs is enjoying a few extra minutes of fame, which he garnered by calling Jim Harbaugh a “bitch” and ripping him for never winning anything on a New York radio show. One can tell how much fun Jacobs is having by watching his Twitter feed, in which he seems to feel the need to respond to just about every mention he receives.

For those who remember Jacobs’ short-yet-eventful (for all the wrong reasons) tenure with the 49ers, this doesn’t come as a shock. Jacobs frequently aired grievances about Harbaugh and his time with the 49ers on Twitter. Jacobs wanted a chance to rejoin the New York Giants last year when he realized the 49ers weren’t going to play him, and he felt like he was “held hostage” when San Francisco refused to grant his release.

Like Richard Sherman, Jacobs craves the limelight. But this post isn’t about the fame-mongering or handing out the “thug” label.

Both Sherman and Jacobs had outbursts that were in some way related to their experiences playing for Jim Harbaugh.

Harbaugh has the ability to win lots of football games, and he’s also phenomenally talented when it comes to getting under the skin of opponents and teammates alike. Sherman still can’t stand his college coach for several reasons — starting with the one-game suspension at Stanford and how Harbaugh supposedly damaged his draft stock by not vouching for him the way Sherman would’ve preferred. It seems pretty obvious that a lot of what happened on Sunday night was about Sherman’s feelings about Michael Crabtree. But the Harbaugh angle is always there.

Or maybe Sherman only pats the rear ends of guys he truly loves and appreciates.

Many of Jacobs’ responses to other Twitter users explain how he has nothing against the San Francisco 49ers or California, he just really doesn’t like Harbaugh. “Despises” is probably a better way to describe his feelings. Meanwhile, Harbaugh will say nothing about Jacobs if he’s ever asked about the usage of the word “bitch,” which seems unlikely anyway because the media probably won’t get to speak with Harbaugh for several weeks. .

Here’s a question: who’ll be the next player to go nutty because Harbaugh caused said player to remain angry, even more than a year after working together? The tale of Jacobs has taught players to refrain from whining about or insulting Harbaugh while he’s still their boss, but certainly there are players who are on the 49ers right now who can’t wait to let loose once they leave the 49ers for another team or profession. A certain running back whose tweets aren’t “bout football” comes to mind.

BASportsGuy The other thing they have in common is beating SF in NFC title game. Harbaugh is very talented but needs to chill a little.

@ElbowDrop9 BASportsGuy Sure, but Jacobs did fumble! I don’t think it’s Harbaugh that needs to chill (except maybe on the sideline… he’s gonna pop an artery if he continues that stuff). It’s the ones who are using foul language to describe him and/or seem to get their entire ax that they need to grind to motivate themselves from stuff that happened (allegedly) years ago. Jacobs needs to chill and accept that a player doesn’t get to decide who he’s employed by unless he’s a free agent. Period. And Sherman most definitely needs to take a chill pill to balance out his Adderall.… Read more »

It doesn’t matter what team they play for (Jacobs and Sherman), their attitude became obvious to everyone and people from top and down wishes they would just shut up and represent their teams with a more concilatory tone. Bitterness grows within their own house, you know? Maybe not a good example, but it is like Dennis Rodman taking his teammates for a ride into no-man’s land and making his players uncomfortable by serenating the dictator and going on a drunken rant on national television (with clips shown internationally) in what is probably the most sheltered country in the world –… Read more »

I could do without 99% of the manufactured drama that happens in public and the media, often because somebody trying to garner attention opened their mouth and said something inflammatory if not simply stupid. Plenty of movie stars, singers, politicians, etc. in this category too — not just sports figures. But then I suppose if there weren’t hoards of people looking to make or extend their 15 minutes of so-called fame, there wouldn’t be an enormous infotainment “news” industry so gobble up the nonsense. Okay, some ex-jock didn’t like his coach and used an offensive term to describe him in… Read more »

It is actually more prudent to get them movie roles amd have them renact their own foolhardy ways
At leasr they will earn a residual royalty on their big mouths.
Even captioned.

Maybe they should be given movie roles so they can renact their foolhardy ways; at least they would get residual royalties for the rest of lives and their grandchildren would get to see how they were and still are!
