Brandon Jacobs irked by his San Francisco 49ers role

If you had Week 6 in the Brandon-Jacobs-Expresses-Disillusionment-With-His-Current-Team pool, well, feel free to break into your signature victory dance.

Jacobs has yet to play a game for the San Francisco 49ers this season after suffering a knee injury during the preseason. The running back didn't sound thrilled about that reality as he discussed the 49ers' Sunday matchup against the New York Giants, the team with which he won two Super Bowl championships.

"It would be different if things were different, put it that way," Jacobs said, via USA Today. "I don't have any thoughts on it."

Since this is Brandon Jacobs we're talking about, he actually had plenty of thoughts on it. Jacobs said his knee is feeling "phenomenal," and he could've played two weeks ago if the 49ers would've let him. He was asked if he's become frustrated by not playing.

Brooks: Niners getting offensive

Known for their defense, the 49ers are also winning on the ground and through the air. Bucky Brooks breaks it down. **More ...**

"Oh, very," he said. "Because I don't know anything. I don't know what's what. But I'm hanging in there, I'm working every day, doing what I have to do. Let's say I'm just working and doing what I have to do, and that's that.

"I've learned over the years when you open your mouth and say certain things, it hurts you, so I'm just going to shut up and keep working."

Jacobs always seemed like a bit of an odd fit with the 49ers, and the start of his first season with the team has proven that to be true. You know Jacobs is dying to face his old team Sunday. If the 49ers keep him inactive, look out for flying objects.
