Brandon Jacobs Gisele shut up

Brandon Jacobs Gisele shut up

Brandon Jacobs Gisele shut up NFLer to Brady's wife: 'Be cute and shut up', New York Giants star running back Brandon Jacobs has some advice for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's wife, supermodel Gisele B√ľndchen. "She just needs to continue to be cute and shut up," Jacobs reportedly said. The running back made the comments after B√ľndchen was videotaped criticizing the Patriots' wide receivers after the team's Super Bowl loss



Brandon Jacobs knows nothing about the high road.
The New York Giants running back ripped Gisele Bundchen on Tuesday for comments the supermodel made defending her husband, Tom Brady, after Super Bowl XLVI.
"She just needs to continue to be cute and shut up," the victorious Jacobs told reporters at the Giants championship parade in Manhattan.

Gisele was caught on video criticizing Patriots receivers after Sunday's title game. She was reponding to a heckler inside a Lucas Oil Stadium hallway who said Eli Manning owns Brady. "My husband cannot [expletive] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time," she said. "I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times."
The comments were recorded by the gossip website, theinsider.com.
Jacobs' comments would be insulting enough if they came from somebody who played a big role in New York's victory. But he was so inconsequential in Super Bowl XLVI (nine carries, 37 yards) that nobody would have taken the time to heckle his wife.

Osi Umenyiora was more understanding of Bundchen's comments.
"I mean she's supposed to stay out of things like that," said the Giants defensive end."But at the end of the day that's their relationship and she has the right to say whatever she wants to."
And that's what is lost in this whole thing. Yes, Gisele is a world-famous supermodel. And, yeah, she probably should have known better than to take a heckler's bait in front of video cameras. But forgetting about her swimsuit pictorials and Victoria's Secret commercials and hundreds of millions of dollars, she's still a wife defending her husband.
Gisele Bundchen raised the ire of the football world after her husband Tom Brady and the New England Patriots lost the Super Bowl on Sunday -- even the victorious New York Giants' running back Brandon Jacobs was irked!

Bemoaning the 21-17 defeat, the 31-year-old supermodel and mother to Brady's son Benjamin, 2, slammed his teammates for fumbling numerous passes during the game. "My husband cannot f***ing throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times," she ranted after the game.

At Monday's ticker tape parade in downtown NYC, Jacobs lashed out Bundchen. "She just needs to continue to be cute and shut up," he told reporters.
The Giants' defensive end Osi Umenyiora was more forgiving of the Brazilian beauty. "She's supposed to stay out of things like that," Umenyiora told reporters. "But at the end of the day that's their relationship and she has the right to say whatever she wants to."
It was really only a matter of time until someone on a football team got mad at Gisele Bundchen for her comments about Tom Brady's inability to catch his own bleeping passes. But no one expected it to be a member of the Giants.It was though -- Brandon Jacobs came out and, according to the New York Post's Brian Costello, had some words for Mrs. Brady.

"She needs to continue to be cute and shut up," Jacobs said, when asked about Gisele's comments.

Soooooo. I guess we know where Jacobs won't ever be playing, huh? Actually, although Jacobs comments are technically "rude," and certainly out of line, it's his delivery -- and not the message -- that needs tweaking. He just could've phrased things better, like his teammate Osi Umenyiora.

"That’s her husband," Umenyiora said. "I mean she’s supposed to stay out of things like that. But at the end of the day that’s their relationship and she has the right to say whatever she wants to."

That's the thing; it's not like this is a "women have their place" issue, although Jacobs makes it sound that way with his comments. It's just a "don't create a rift between your husband the quarterback and the rest of the team by screaming about how bad they suck to fans and reporters" thing.

It doesn't do anyone any good for the wife of the quarterback to come out and take shots at the quarterback's targets, since it really only serves to recreate a scene out of a sports movie. The results are, almost always, a rift between the quarterback and his teammates.

Except there's usually a few more games to sort their issues out and win the big game.
