RB Brandon Jacobs Interview


Q: How much did the bye week help you?

A: The bye week could not have come at a better time for me. I ended up missing two weeks and I thought that third week, if we didn't have the bye, I would have been good to go. It was at a good time. Let's just hope that we are lucky enough to stay healthy from here on out because there is no more byes.

Q: How big is it for the running game to carry the momentum it got against the Bills?

A:  That is what we want to do. We have a team that has not won yet and we know that they are going to do everything they need to do to win a ball game. It is possible that we can see anything out of them so we just have to hold our ground and keep our guard up.

Q: How is your knee?

A: I haven't felt it at all actually. My knee is good and I am making good cuts going to both sides. Once I was able to see that I was able to make cuts going to my right, I knew it was good because that was the problem. I couldn't cut right without it opening up on me so I did that great and it felt good. I felt explosive yesterday and today. I am just ready to go out there and get some snaps and play.

Q: You haven't had any pain?

A: No soreness and that is what I am surprised with. I have had this injury twice before and even after practicing it hasn't bothered me at all.

Q: Will you wear a brace?

A: Yes I am going to wear a brace on both knees actually. I am going to try to prevent anything from happening to the other one.

Q: Do you think you will get the ball more?

A: I have no idea. I am just here working hard and whatever happens, happens. I am not making any more predictions or assuming that I am going to get something. I am just going out and if they call my number, I will be there. If they don't, fine.

Q: Can you address your comments in the fitness magazine?

A: Being an athlete, I want to go out and preform and help my team win. It is really aggravating, it is really frustrating. It is teams all over the league, that are not running the ball well and running backs aren't getting the carries that they normally get. I can't do anything about that. I just want to be happy. That is where I want to start at, I just want to be happy and be able to finish my career in the right way.
