Brandon Jacobs is a man of many words. In case you have forgotten, this is a guy who wanted out of New York a few short months ago. He wanted nothing to do with the Giants and admitted he was only worried about driving his “fast ass car.” Super Bowls seem to have a way of fixing everything, don’t they? Now that the G-Men took home the Lombardi trophy, Jacobs has focused his attention on running his mouth to opponents’ wives. It may be hard to believe, but he actually apologized for telling Gisele to “stay cute and shut up” on Wednesday.

“Given the fact that it’s a colleague of mine’s wife, I do apologize for saying that, because I shouldn’t have said that,” Jacobs said on ESPN Radio’s Doug Gotlieb Show according to Pro Football Talk. “It’s his wife and I should respect that just as much as anyone else.”

Gisele should not have said what she did about the Patriots’ receivers, but Jacobs was also out of line. We had wondered if he would issue an apology for those comments in the same way he did with his decapitation remark, and it looks like he decided that was the best choice. Regardless of how inappropriate Gisele’s comment was, it was not directed at Jacobs and was none of his business. He either realized that or — more likely — someone had to tell him.
