Brandon Jacobs doesn't care for the Giants' doubters
The New York Giants have already piled up as many injuries or more than any other team in the NFL.
But a big upset victory last Sunday at Philadelphia, thanks to a five-touchdown performance by quarterback Eli Manning, has New York 2-1 and in the right position in the NFC East, tied for first.
Don’t be doubting this team, says running back Brandon Jacobs.
“The people outside that want to say they're fans and don't believe in us, I couldn't care less if they ever believed in us," Jacobs said, according to the New York Daily News. "They don't mean anything to us if they didn't believe in us. They can go back and finish living their miserable lives as they've been living and hoping that they lose and whatever."
Per Jacobs, confidence is running awfully high in the locker room. It should be. The Giants are playing the Arizona Cardinals this week.
“I look in a lot of guys' eyes and see that they're ready to go,” Jacobs said. “The only thing that matters is the people that's on this football team and in this organization.”
And Us vs. The World mentality. It’s been used in every locker room across, well, the world.
