Giants backup RB Jacobs storms out of interview session

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs stormed off from an interview session with reporters Wednesday after being questioned about his role.

Jacobs has been demoted to the No. 2 back behind Ahmad Bradshaw. Jacobs refused to answer questions about comments he made last week that he was unhappy with his role.

After answering some questions about the Giants' new stadium and the upcoming season, Jacobs was asked about the team's two-back system in 2008, when he and Derrick Ward shared carries and each ran for 1,000 yards.

Part of the question concerned whether both backs had put aside their egos.

"You think I'm stupid, aren't you? You guys are funny, man," Jacobs said before he walked away, leaving the room with an expletive.
