Jacobs Looking Great In Camp Says Coughlin

The Star-Ledger reports on Brandon Jacobs, and Tom Coughlin seems to feel that the RB is having a great training camp so far:

Thanks to a new approach in his workouts to stress speed and agility over strength, 28-year-old Giants running back Brandon Jacobs is showing early signs of regaining the 1,000-yard form he had during the 2007 and 2008 seasons. “He looks good to me. Brandon looks good,” coach Tom Coughlin said. “He’s running well, he goes out there every day, he can work and that’s a big plus. He looks fast.” Perhaps “agile” is a better word .As a freakish, oversized young player who figured he’d bull his way to 1,000 yards, Jacobs always focused on getting bigger and stronger. Now, he realizes he needed to be more flexible. “I’m getting older,” said Jacobs, who now weighs about 265 pounds. “Power is instilled in me. I’m born strong, I don’t think I have to do much to keep strong. I just have to do a lot of work to get my speed up and work on my core flexibility, my hip flexibility.”
