***** suspend Brandon Jacobs for three games
By Cam Inman
The San Francisco ***** have suspended Brandon Jacobs for the final three games of the regular season.
The disgruntled running back was a healthy scratch for the *****' 27-13 win Sunday over the Miami Dolphins, which came in the wake of Jacobs' latest social-media rants about his lack of action this season.
The ***** instead turned to rookie LaMichael James and Anthony Dixon as Frank Gore's backups. James had eight carries for 30 yards and a 15-yard catch in his debut, while Dixon's only carries were a 1-yard touchdown run and an 8-yard run to the 1-yard line.
Late last week, Jacobs turned to social media to vent his frustration. In response to a fan on Instagram, Jacobs replied: "I am on this team rotting away so why would I wanna put any pics up of anything that say niners. This is by far the worst year I ever had."
That remark prompted angry retorts from ***** fans, to which Jacobs replied via Twitter: "I don't understand why people are angry at me because I wanna do what I am paid to do, I am a competitive person, I think people should be mad if I didn't wanna play, but I forgot the people that's pissed they don't have a athletic bone in their body."
Coach Jim Harbaugh declined to comment on Jacobs' posts when approached by The Associated Press after the game or during Monday's press availability.
Jacobs had five carries for 7 yards in the previous two games, his only action this season. Jacobs signed a one-year deal
with the ***** after winning his second Super Bowl in his seven seasons with the Giants.
Re: ***** suspend Brandon Jacobs for three games
What the hell is it with the Digits? They sign guys and then don't use them. They did it with Brandon Jacobs, they did it with Brian Westbrook, they almost did it with Randy Moss. They did it with their 1st round draft pick. And that's all just off the top of my head, I bet there are more examples if I looked (too lazy).
Interesting stat from our demolishing of the digits: Six different Seattle rookies saw the field, for a combined 260 snaps. The only 49er rookie to see the field was LaMichael James (14 snaps).
P.S. Let this be a lesson to future veteran free agents looking for a place to actually play.
