    A head scratcher.

    Like someone can't use a 260 lb RB with an attitude.

    I wonder who he will go to.

    I wouldn't mind the Hawks signing Jacobs.

    Doesn't run out of bounds like Shaun Alexander did to avoid hits.

    He had a poor attitude. And while being a pretty good runningback, I don't see the Giants really being that much worse without him.

    As a 45 year Giant fan, I don't really mind

    Three years ago, Jacobs punished defenses. Whoever tried to tackle him was going to pay the price. Jacobs would wear down the defense and then a fresh Amand Bradshaw would dance around untouched

    Jacobs is worn out. Once in a while he can give a good lick but for the most part, he is good for two yards a carry. He is far from automatic on short yardage situations He did not take demotion to number two back very well and sulks most of the time. He is a loose cannon and doesn't take it very well when he has a bad game

    He might help a team, but you can't build your offense around him

    He sucks. One would think with his size and strength he would run hard up the middle, but all he does is try to run to the outside, and he's slow.
