New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs was all over the map in the postgame locker room Sunday night. He issued a lengthy apology for his helmet-tossing incident in the third quarter, but then he reportedly cursed at a reporter for asking him about not returning to the game. He would later apologize to the reporter.
"I was a little mad, but to be honest with you, it was a mistake," Jacobs said according to ESPNNewYork.com. "I did not mean to do that. Anyone that knows me knows that I didn't mean to do something like that. The whole world could have been falling down on me and I wouldn't have done anything like that. I apologize to Indy and their fans and our organization.
"I got frustrated and went to throw my helmet onto the bench and it caught my middle finger and flicked up into the stands. I'd like to apologize to our organization, Indy's and the fans. The apology is real. I apologize to the fellow that caught it and the people that were around it that were in danger."
