The more everyone sees of Ahmad Bradshaw this season, the more everyone wonders: What’s wrong with Brandon Jacobs? And five games into the season it sure does seem like something is wrong.
Even, apparently, to him.
“I expect more as well,” Jacobs said earlier today on The Brandon Tierney Show on ESPN Radio (1050 AM) in New York. “I don’t know what it is. I’m going in, working hard, I’m working hard at practice. I go out in the game and give it my all, man. I’m just waiting for it all to come together, just trying to be patient and hang in there.”
That’s fine, but five games into the season, Jacobs has rushed for just 355 yards on 100 carries. His 3.6 yards per carry average is way below the 5.0 averages he had in each of the last two years. It’s also only marginally higher than the 3.4 average he said would have to improve or he’d quit.
