PLAYERS: Brandon Jacobs
Add Brandon Jacobs to the growing list of running backs who are unhappy about the new helmet rule that was passed by the NFL on Wednesday. The rule forbids players from lowering the crown of their helmet into approaching defenders. Jacobs, who barely played for the San Francisco 49ers last season and is now an unrestricted free agent, went on a twitter rant last night to reveal his anger according to ESPN New York.  ”How the f— can we protect ourselves,” Jacobs tweeted. “They ought to make a rule saying they cant hit us in our legs while we are ingaged with a defender.” Jacobs, wasn’t done there either. Our head are connected to our shoulders. There’s no such thing, you can’t drop your shoulders without our heads. — Brandon Jacobs (@gatorboyrb) March 20, 2013   Get your daughters ready because they’ll be playing football soon!!!!! — Brandon Jacobs (@gatorboyrb) March 20, 2013   Players can complain but it’s not going to make a difference, just like it didn’t make a difference when defensive players were livid after the NFL introduced the new hitting rules. It’s the offensive players turn to adjust the best they can and avoid those hefty fines.
