Jacobs apologizes to Bundchen


Jacobs apologizes to Bundchen

On Tuesday, Giants running back Brandon Jacobs told reporters that Tom Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen, should "stay cute and shut up".

Now, he's admitting that it is he who should shut up.

Speaking on The Doug Gottlieb Show on Wednesday night, Jacobs apologized for the comment.

"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. "It's his wife and I should respect that just as much as anyone else."

Bundchen made headlines Sunday night when she was caught on video responding to hecklers by saying, "My husband cannot f------ throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times."

The one drop that stands out, obviously, is the tough one to Wes Welker -- by no means an easy catch to make, but one that Welker has shown he's capable of making in the past.

Jacobs would not apologize, however, for saying that Bundchen was "cute", and well, we can't really blame him.

Some Patriots kneel, others stand and link arms during national anthem

FOXBORO -- The Patriots took different approaches as the National Anthem played on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Many, including safety and captain Devin McCourty, took a knee. Others stood and linked arms. 

On the opposite sideline, it appeared as though every member of the Texans stood on the sidelines and linked arms. 

Those joining McCourty on a knee included Stephon Gilmore, Malcolm Butler, Lawrence Guy, Johnson Bademosi, Alan Branch, Brandon King, Malcom Brown and rookies Deatrich Wise and Adam Butler. 

Among those linking arms were Tom Brady, Phillip Dorsett, Cassius Marsh, Matthew Slater, David Harris and Dwayne Allen.
