Brandon Jacobs Throws Helmet Into The Stands In Indianapolis

Monday, September 20, 2010

Things took a bizarre turn after the touchdown, when NBC's cameras caught a fan handing Jacobs' helmet back to the field. It turned out that Jacobs, furious at any number of things, had tried to fling his helmet under the Giants' bench  and the grill stuck to his fingers long enough that it lofted higher than his target and ended up in the stands.Anyone who knows me knows that I'm not about that, that it wasn't my intention for that to happen with the helmet," Jacobs said. "I was a little mad but I can't do something like that."He then went on to apologize to the Colts, to the Giants, to the fan who wound up retrieving the helmet and all the fans in the vicinity. "It was a bad mistake," he said, "and I feel bad about it."

It was like 2009 all over again for the Giants as Eli and Co. were battered by Peyton and the Colts. They were shoved around so badly in their 38-14 loss that at one point the frustration boiled over, with Brandon Jacobs flinging his helmet into the stands.Typical of the Giants' night: .Jacobs - who later apologized for his tantrum - was aiming for the bench, but the helmet got stuck in the adhesive part of his glove and slipped off and flew into the stands.

NBC's Andrea Kremer reported that Giants officials said Jacobs had thrown the helmet in rage after getting pulled from the game but intended to hit the bench with it. It slipped out of his hand and landed almost 10 rows up into the stands. Coughlin said he hadn't been aware of the helmet incident until the Giants' PR staff briefed him about it after the game, so the fact that Jacobs didn't get another carry the rest of the game was likely more attributable to both Coughlin's distaste for his soft approach and the score, which dictated the Giants throw more.

The Giants were admittedly caught off guard by that, especially since the Colts had run just 10 times while passing 57 times in their opening-day loss to the Houston Texans. But Peyton said they decided to alter their approach when they saw the Giants had dressed only two defensive tackles a clear sign they were concentrating on the pass rush, while leaving them vulnerable to a ground assault.
