Ron Jaworski Says “Something Is Wrong With Brandon Jacobs”


Ron Jaworski, who’s been watching film of the Giants for ESPN’s NFL Matchup show, said today on ESPN’s Mike and Mike in the Morning that from his analysis of Jacobs, it’s clear that something is wrong with him.

“This is a team that has to be fueled by the power running game of Brandon Jacobs,” Jaworski said. “What we’re now seeing is they’re not running the football well, and I don’t know what’s wrong with Brandon Jacobs, but something is wrong. This guy is not running with power, he’s not moving his feet, and as big as he is, he’s got to move his feet and get momentum going. When he stops moving his feet, he starts going backward. That’s not his running style.”

Jacobs, who had averaged 5.0 yards a carry each of the last two seasons, is averaging just 3.9 yards a carry this season. Whatever is wrong with Jacobs, the Giants, who are on a three-game losing streak, need him to get it fixed.

  1. Ron, your assessment is about a month late.

    Jacobs has been running fine the last few weeks — it’s the DEFENSE that has ailed the Giants.

    It starts with defense, not the running game, for the Giants. The part that makes sense is that if the Giants defense cannot keep their offense on the field running the football and controlling the clock, the Giants are doomed.

    Its about running for the Giants only insofar as the defense holds.

  2. Jaws ain’t the brightest bulb in the lamp of life

    all his ex=Eagles teammates refer to him as a “dumb pol…”

    well, you get the idea
