As if there wasn’t enough bad blood between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots already, Brandon Jacobs just threw some more gasoline on the fire. And the Giants running back did it at the expense of Gisele Bundchen, wife of Patriots’ QB Tom Brady.
Following Super Bowl XLVI, Bundchen ripped Brady’s teammates for too many dropped passes in the loss. She says, “My husband cannot f****** throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time…I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”
Well, this comment didn’t sit well with Jacobs, this despite the fact that his team won the game 21-17.
When asked his thoughts on Bundchen’s statement, Jacobs tells Yahoo!, “She just needs to continue to be cute and shut up.”
Jacobs’ teammate Osi Umenyiora had a little bit of a different take and was a bit more understanding.
“I mean she’s supposed to stay out of things like that,” Umenyiora says. “But at the end of the day that’s their relationship and she has the right to say whatever she wants to.”
This will certainly make a likely fall rematch a tense competition.
