Former San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs should be traveling to his home state to play in his second straight Super Bowl. Instead Jacobs was suspended, then waived by the team for being a malcontent.  Jacobs though says he has no regrets about how he handled things, and told USA Today he’ll be rooting for the Niners in the big game. “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.” Jacobs struggled all season to understand why he wasn’t playing, and as the season progressed along, he started to lash out on twitter. Jacobs simply didn’t understand why he didn’t get the carries he was promised, and then when he was suspended, feels the team used him as a scapegoat. “Conduct detrimental to the team, to me, is bashing the team, getting in trouble, distracting the team, whatever. However, I don’t think it was that bad,” he said. “It came across being disrespectful or whatever it was. I didn’t mean to disrespect anybody or hurt anybody’s feelings. 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.” “No one knew what was going on. Fans will be fans. I liked going out there. I really didn’t mean to hurt anybody’s feelings.” “I feel like I’ve got a lot left in the tank, I feel so good right now. I look at last year like a red-shirt year,” he said. “I was able to get healthy and watch the team practice, play, get my knee healthy and just chill out. I’m happy about that. I didn’t get beat up this year, which teams can look at as a plus or minus. “I’m just at the time of my career now where football will be what it was in college. It’s not about money. Football is fun. I don’t have big-time contract numbers. None of that. It’s just about the team. If teams want somebody to go out there and give it their all and play their heart out and help people around them, I’m your guy.” Jacobs could be coming to a city near you.
