Brandon Jacobs apologizes for remarks about Tom Brady's wife
Brandon Jacobs has backtracked from his comments that Tom Brady’s wife Giselse Bundchen shut “stay cute and shut up.”
That is what the New York Giants running back had to say after Bundchen’s remarks following the New England Patriots’ 24-21loss to the New York Giants became a central storyline. The Patriots had a chance to put the game away but Brady missed connecting with Wes Welker on a key third-down play late in the game.
It was a tough throw to handle but Welker could have made the play.
"My husband cannot f------ throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time,” the supermodel Bundchen said in a video shot by the insider.com. “I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times.”
There were multiple other dropped passes throughout the game, particularly in the fourth quarter, so Bundchen had a point even if it’s one that won’t make her the most popular supermodel in Foxborough, Mass.
Jacobs reacted but he’s since chosen to change his stance.
“Given the fact that it's a colleague of mine's wife, I do apologize for saying that, because I shouldn't have said that," Jacobs said on The Doug Gottlieb Show, according to ESPN New York. "It's his wife and I should respect that just as much as anyone else."
Jacobs stood by his remark that Bundchen is “cute.”
“No question, he should take that as a compliment," he said. "If he finds something wrong with that, then that's his problem."
Now wouldn’t a third meeting between these clubs in a Super Bowl in the near future just be terrific?
