Brandon Jacobs Suspended (per twitter)

As much as I hate the Giants, I have a Harbaugh like respect for their coach. He is a no nonsense guy, much like Harbaugh. No wonder both of them have recently "passed" on him.
So its taken the zone less than 3 days to get a player suspended? Is that a record or what!
F Jacobs. I hated the signing from day one. There is nothing he brings to the table that Gore can do better.

According to Pro Football Talk, Jacobs is going to file a grievance against the 49ers.

The decision to suspend him without pay for the last three games is probably going to come back to bite the Niners. I'd be surprised if they can do this.

i never understood why they took Jacobs in the first place. He's a power back that doesn't run with power. He's a whiner and a complainer. If he griped in New York, why did Harbaugh think he'd be a better fit in San Francisco.

Good thing this is a cheap date. It may turn out to be a bit more expensive than the Niners had thought it would be.

Brandon Jacobs will be filing a grievance in hopes of getting reinstated, getting his money or getting his ticket out of SF.
After the signing of the free agents in the off season who really expected Jacobs would be the first one b***hing about not getting enough playing time?
Good Riddance!!!!!!!

How would it really bite us? If he wins we he just gets the money that he was signed to.

Baalke is a pretty shrewd guy and I doubt they suspended him without getting their ducks in a row...but as mentioned by SportFan even if the niners lose they just pay the money owed and say adios.

Brandon Jacobs is frustrated with the niners. Go check out his Instagram ( speed4527 ) and comments. He's bragging about the NY Giants to saying he's not happy in SF.

Harbaugh prolly told him James is #2 RB.

Wonder if the niners picked him up just to take a little away from NY.

James wont be the #2, I would bet the farm on that

Looks like somebody just lost their farm.

Not sure if posted but....

According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today Sports, who provided blanket coverage of the Giants for many seasons, the only team that Jacobs is currently willing to play for is the Giants. By placing Jacobs on their suspended list for the rest of the season, the 49ers have blocked such a move until the 2013 offseason. Jacobs, however, is planning to file an appeal to either be reinstated, receive his remaining pay or his release.

So yea the conspiracy of an inside man against the Giants just gained a whole hell of a lot of creditability.....
Why was he suspended?

"conduct detrimental to the team" a la his nut case moments on social media and likely in the locker room and on the field.
