Giants running back Brandon Jacobs was asked after the Super Bowl what it means for the Giants to have derailed the Patriots in two straight Super Bowl meetings. His answer was a bit of salt in New England’s open wound.
“We decapitated them. They can’t wear that crown no more,” Jacobs said during a television interview. “Can’t wear that crown any more.”
Jacobs was also asked about his confidence level when quarterback Eli Manning led the Giants onto the field for their final possession.
“We’re going to win the football game, no question about it,” Jacobs said. “Ten (Manning’s jersey number) has been clutch for our football team from day one, and he always will be for the rest of his career. With Eli, and his talents, it’s an honor to be on this football team with a quarterback like that.”
