It's one thing for Alex Smith to complain about playing time, but Brandon Jacobs? At his Monday press conference Jim Harbaugh did his best Bill Belichick, although he does need some practice in answering in monotone quick hits instead of 'no comment."
Harbaugh was hammered on running back Jacobs and his recent complaining about his playing time. Jacobs is well known in New York for his time with the Giants, and loud banter over his status. Now in San Francisco, Jacobs isn't happy in his first year as a 49er.
Harbaugh seemed annoyed when having to address questions on a player who has played in only 2 games.
“I don’t . . . I really don’t have a comment for you on that at this point,” Harbaugh said when asked about Jacobs. “No comment," according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee."
Asked if he has spoken to Jacobs, Harbaugh answered, “No comment.”
Asked if Jacobs is still a member of the team, Harbaugh answered, “I’ll go with the Fifth Amendment. I have no comment on that.”
Asked if he knew that Jacobs had a tendency to complain about playing time, Harbaugh answered, “Yeah, at this time, at this hour, I choose to have no comment.”
