Question is....why sign him then if all he was gonna do is walk the sideline? I understand Harbaugh wanted players who can also add depth at in more than one position but doesn't make sense with Jacobs. They signed him for a reason and Harbaugh is being tight-lipped about it, even to Jacobs. But yeah, Harbaugh is not a coach you want to start battling with through the media. If Jacobs is frustrated he best talk to Harbaugh and not the media.
Learn from Moss! Haven't heard a peep about not getting balls.

Good, release his ass and let someone else take his roster spot. We dont have time for these divas, we are trying win championships. You are either with us or against us
well, at least your not saying that he's faking injury
The fact that Jacobs isn't active should not surprise anyone here, least of all me. This is what I said about the RB position in my final 53 prediction:
This is a crowded backfield, and I think Jacobs will be on the short end of the carries. Hunter is the featured back of the future. James will be the change-of-pace back, though he's still a work in progress. I see us drafting a true throwback powerback somewhere in the 2013 draft. Jacobs won't be with this team more than one season. Personally, I like Dixon. I think he's beginning to "get it" and honestly hopes he beats out Jacobs. I'm just a bigger fan of home-grown developed talent than a FA acquisition. In my mind if Dixon becomes that powerback JH and Coach Rathman wants I think he brings more value to the squad given he's a great ST player.
Clearly, Dixon is "getting it", and likely is the reason JH & Co. are in no rush to activate Jacobs. "Value" should be the words here. Dixon gives this team more than Jacobs. And this may be just me but it seems that Dixon is the more punishing runner of the two as well. If/when Jacobs is reactivated he is gonna have to prove to be a better short yardage back than Dixon late in games like Dixon was in the Bills game.
Can't believe how much overreaction there is to this... oh wait, sure I can.
I want to see Jacobs out there this weekend. He looked very quick in the preseason, and it was said he worked very hard to make that happen. He seems oh so hungry to prove what he can do.. and I hope we let him.
Hmmm, Brandon Jacobs complaining about playing time, shooting his mouth off in the press, and creating friction with the team. I'm sure the NYG fans are laughing. If the guy would just put his head down and keep working, his opportunity would come. It's a long season and anything can happen. But by bi**hing about his playing time, he's putting himself ahead of the team, and Harbaugh will not respond well to that.
