The Other Paper:
Brandon Jacobs was just a tiny part of the San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl run this season but — even after barely being used then discarded by the team — is still rooting for them to beat the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.
"My emotions are I want the 49ers to win the game,"Jacobs said. "I don't have any regrets about not being there whatsoever. I don't feel like I should've done things differently. I don't feel anything else. I'm a hundred percent happy where I am."
The place where Jacobs is at the moment is his home in Atlanta.
After seven seasons — and two Super Bowl rings — with the New York Giants, the 260-pound running back found the going rough out on the west coast.
The 30-year-old Jacobs was cut by the 49ers after the season ended but not after being suspended for conduct detrimental to the team after he griped about his lack of playing time (5 carries for 7 yards) on Twitter. He also posted photos of himself in a Giants uniform — something that irked the Niners' brass.
"I didn't mean to disrespect anybody or hurt anybody's feelings," Jacobs said. "I didn't have any disrespect. I didn't mean to do any of that. I was told I would get some of the pie and I didn't. That kind of made me a little upset and made me snap."
Jacobs isn't letting the past season discourage him from hooking up with one of the other 31 NFL teams in the future.
"I feel like I got a lot left in the tank, I feel so good right now," he said. "I look at last year as a red-shirt year."

Baltimore Ravens linebacker/special teams ace Brendon Ayanbadejo already has his plans prepared for Super Bowl week. No, he’s not going to be visiting the finest restaurants and nightclubs in New Orleans.

Baltimore Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis told his teammates to make sure they didn't hoist the Vince Lombardi trophy prematurely. The trophy paid a visit to team headquarters when CBS wanted to tape the players interacting with the Super Bowl trophy Wednesday, but the former NFL Defensive Player of the Year told players it wasn't appropriate to do until or unless they...
Never has an athlete been more ready to grab the bully pulpit provided by the excessive word orgy that is the lead-up to the Super Bowl than Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.
The question is: Are we ready for what he has to say?
Because if the Gospel according to Tebow led to unnecessary controversy, which it did, wait until they get a load of The Gospel according to Ray. He has been...
While talking to the media today, Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed was asked if he plans on retiring after the Super Bowl, like his teammate Ray Lewis.
“I’ll be playing next year. Next question,” said Reed, per the Baltimore Sun.
My thought was that if the Ravens win next week’s Super Bowl, Reed would ride off into the Sunset with Lewis, but I guess not. Then again things...
While Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis has declared he’s
retiring following the Super Bowl, safety Ed Reed is not considering calling it

Check out this guy’s haircut that was created to look like Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. His barber ought to be an artist. The barber shaved an almost perfect portrait of Lewis on the back of the customer’s head. He added Lewis’ No. 52 on the side. Now that’s a tribute.
It should come as no surprise, but the numbers are still jarring.
Anyone who thought about it for more than a second or two would guess that the SEC has the most players in the Super Bowl. After all, when you've been the nation's best college football conference for the better part of a decade, you ought to have a healthy presence on the two best teams in the NFL.
