Former San Francisco 49ers RB Brandon Jacobs Blasts Jim Harbaugh On Radio

Don’t count former San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs among those who is a fan of what coach Jim Harbaugh has done in his three seasons in the Bay Area.

Jacobs, who signed with the 49ers as a free agent in 2012 and was released after the end of a tumultuous regular season that ended with him being suspended for the final three games.

Appearing on WFAN radio in New York on Thursday, Jacobs didn’t exactly opt for the high road. (h/t

“He is a bitch and that’s why he’s never won anything.

“I have one regret in my career and that’s going to the 49ers when I could have stayed in New York. I just wanted to see what stuff was like with another team and it didn’t work out.

“It is what it is. I’ve got two rings. Harbaugh, though, he’s a bitch. So it doesn’t matter.”

While the team never said why Jacobs was suspended, the punishment came after a series of posts by Jacobs on social media about his lack of playing time.

Jacobs barely played in San Francisco gaining just seven yards on five carries in the two games in which he was active.

In eight seasons (2005-11, 2013) with the New York Giants, Jacobs ran for 5,087 yards and 60 touchdowns and was part of Super Bowl winners after the 2007 and 2011 seasons. He announced his retirement in January.

When a player and a coach disagree, there are two distinct ways it can be handled. There is the way Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis handled his differences of opinion with former coach Greg Schiano, who said Thursday from the Pro Bowl in Hawaii that the atmosphere in Tampa was “real tense.” (h/t

Or … you can just call your former coach a “bitch” from 3,000 miles away.
