On Wednesday, the New York media hounded Giants players for their thoughts on Gisele ripping Patriots wide receivers and pass-catchers. Running back Brandon Jacobs, often known for saying some outlandish things, said Gisele should "be cute and shut up."

It was inappropriate, because you never tell another man's wife to "shut up," and Jacobs apologized for it later on Wednesday.
"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 Wednesday on The Doug Gottlieb Show. "It's his wife and I should respect that just as much as anyone else."
Jacobs is correct. If he'd said something like "She shouldn't be saying that about his teammates," he would've been lauded for correctly assessing the situation. Using the phrase "shut up" towards another man's wife just isn't something that flies.
As for the "be cute" part of his statement, well, Jacobs isn't apologizing for that.
"No question, he should take that as a compliment," Jacobs said. "If he finds something wrong with that, then that's his problem."
Theoretically, Gisele/Brady could be upset with "cute" since it's not the typical phrase used to describe "one of the most famous supermodels in the world."
Whatever, they got an apology from Jacobs which is a hard thing to do. And something tells us Gisele/Brady will have enough to worry about own on their own without sweating what someone on another team says.
