Brandon Jacobs tip-toes around Siragusa comments

New York Daily News - [Full Article]

When asked what he thought about Fox analyst Tony Siragusa criticizing him for supposedly tip-toeing, Giants RB Brandon Jacobs held back.

"I don't care about analysts," Jacobs said. "They are analysts. They are going to say what they've got to say. I am here, we are 3-0, and that's all I am focusing on. I don't want to talk about the comment that was made by Tony Siragusa. I don't really care about a Tony Siragusa. Next question."

The problem is that there have been a lot of questions surrounding the Giants' running game this season. Through the first three games, the 6-4, 264-pound Jacobs has rushed for 196 yards and one touchdown and is averaging 3.4 yards per carry. Jacobs is still searching for his first 100-yard game of the season after a season-high 92 yards last week against Tampa Bay.

"No, I don't feel that I'm doing anything (differently)," Jacobs said. "I feel like I'm running the same way I was running last year. Getting a little bit smarter, being patient, let the scheme happen for me. You just can't run in there and think that you can outrun your blocks."
