Brandon Jacobs is done taking out his frustrations on his helmet or the media. Now, he says, he's ready to take them out on the other team.
The Giants' angry backup running back promised that Wednesday, two days after he aired his grievances to Tom Coughlin and Jerry Reese. He said he finally got his sought-after explanation for the loss of his starting job. And, after a lengthy, all-inclusive apology for his recent behavior, he insisted he's "absolutely in the right frame of mind."
"Just to put this whole thing to bed, my issue was the explanation (for his demotion)," Jacobs said. "I didn't have one. I have one now. Now all that stuff is gone. It's done. And we're moving forward. So that's what lit my dynamite. It was the explanation to what was going on."
Jacobs didn't say what the explanation was, although Coughlin said Monday that Ahmad Bradshaw had simply earned the right to start. Whatever it was, Jacobs insisted "I agree with the explanation 100%."
