Jacobs and Gisele are probs not BFFs. (AP)

It was really only a matter of time until someone on a football team got mad at Gisele Bundchen for her comments about Tom Brady's inability to catch his own bleeping passes. But no one expected it to be a member of the Giants.

Latest NFL News, Notes

It was though -- Brandon Jacobs came out and, according to the New York Post's Brian Costello, had some words for Mrs. Brady.

"She needs to continue to be cute and shut up," Jacobs said, when asked about Gisele's comments.

Soooooo. I guess we know where Jacobs won't ever be playing, huh? Actually, although Jacobs comments are technically "rude," and certainly out of line, it's his delivery -- and not the message -- that needs tweaking. He just could've phrased things better, like his teammate Osi Umenyiora.

"That’s her husband," Umenyiora said. "I mean she’s supposed to stay out of things like that. But at the end of the day that’s their relationship and she has the right to say whatever she wants to."

That's the thing; it's not like this is a "women have their place" issue, although Jacobs makes it sound that way with his comments. It's just a "don't create a rift between your husband the quarterback and the rest of the team by screaming about how bad they suck to fans and reporters" thing.

It doesn't do anyone any good for the wife of the quarterback to come out and take shots at the quarterback's targets, since it really only serves to recreate a scene out of a sports movie. The results are, almost always, a rift between the quarterback and his teammates.

Except there's usually a few more games to sort their issues out and win the big game.

Gisele could have been more objective with her comments but the bottom line is she is right. Had Welker, and no knock on Wes - he made a great effort, made that fourth quarter catch, the game belonged to the Patriots.

Jacobs is a neanderthal. What he probably doesn't realize is that not only is Gisele a beautiful woman but a savvy business woman as well. Her yearly income is probably five times what Brady and Jacobs is combined. She also speaks several languages. Jacobs barely has command of one.

Wow football must really be over as this is a top story that I guess someone needs to a player about, and then continue reporting about. Worst of all we read it and comment on it.

time to move along I guess.

Gisele isn't even very attractive at that.  Huge nose, 7 feet tall, and no curves.  No thank you.  I prefer breasts and other such feminine traits, not angular oddness and a nose large enough for crows to roost on.  Other than that I actually agree with her.  If Patriots receivers could catch we wouldn't have to hear all this "Eli is a hall of famer" nonsense.

Hey NYYankee38  do you have a wife?  I would love to see what your idea of hot is since Giselle is so ugly.

Oh wow, I bet you're one of those guys that goes around calling other guy's gf's and wives ugly, and then wondering why you get your ass kicked. Look jackass, if you actually had ever been with a woman you know guys just won't knock another guy's broad, and everyone thinks their girl is the hottest. I look at Giselle and have no attraction to her, but I would never say that to Brady or Giselle because that's just stupid. On an internet message board though that neither of them will ever read, and since they're celebrities, everyone is entitled to their opinion. His wife or gf doesn't figure into that equation.

Jacobs: Gisele needs to 'be cute and shut up'

vitamin-b, your post was hysterically awful.  She could buy and sell "many NFL franchises a couple of times over again"?  Why bother making stuff like this up?  She's worth about $150M.  There are no NFL franchises worth so little.  You'd have a lot more credibility if you had your facts straight.

Also, this wasn't some unsolicited tweet by Jacobs.  A reporter asked him what he thought about Bundchen's comments and he answered it.  But somehow that means he's not "worrying about his personal health and fitness"?  That's just dumb. 

The only part of your post that made any sense whatsoever is that everyone needs to move on.

Give me a break. Here is what's going to happen. Brady enters the locker room, his team mates look mad. He says, "OK guys listen. She is a Supermodel. I didn't marry her for her brains. Give me a break, ok?" The entire team nods their heads and shuts up, knowing he is the only reason they made the playoffs and their season(s) depend on him.

This isn't a story.

What she should have said... "Didn't Bill have someone video tape the other teams signals?" Seriously though, who cares what she says? She's an idiot, just like Jacobs. I really do appreciate the fact that the Pats can't seem to win the big game since they don't know what play is coming next. It's so funny to me how the Pat fans continue to defend their team though and say it didn't matter. Yet two super bowl losses and all the other playoff gaffs they've had seem to indicate it does.

Its not her place, and although she may think it or talk with Tom privately and what not, never should be shared in the media.  Sorry.  All that will do is create tension or rift.  How about this, this throw to Welker wasnt exactly perfect either.  Tom has to work with these people, she doesnt.  I will be furious it that were me and my wife.
