07:26 AM ET 01.24 | The high road was there for Brandon Jacobs, and he chose to veer sharply in the other direction. The retired Giants running back went on WFAN on Thursday, and he spent part of the time slamming the coach he spent one year with, 49ers head man Jim Harbaugh. Jacobs left the Giants in 2012, heading to San Francisco as a free agent, but he struggled through a forgettable season. He returned to the Giants this past season. And on Thursday, he called heading to San Fran his "one regret." ... "I just wanted to see what stuff was like with another team and it didn't work out." Still, Jacobs has two Super Bowl rings from his time with the Giants, he pointed out. And Harbaugh still has none. It is what it is," he said. "I've got two rings. Harbaugh, though, he's a b****. So it doesn't matter."

At some point in time Harbaugh will have his rings, he's just too good a coach not to get one!!!

not necessarily.

Being called a biotch by Jacobs? Harbaugh is probably laughing his butt off.

I will miss the big guy. No holding back on the field or when reporters asked questions. Was fun to watch when he got to that second level. Like an old time bar room brawl. Good stuff.

Apparently senility is the reason for Jacobs retirement. He forgets that the when no one else wanted Jacobs the 49ers took him in.......... He forgets that it was not Harbaugh that ended his career, Jacobs looked promising but suffered and injury and never returned to the playing level the 49er expected of him............. Then it was Jacobs that started whining to the press and was a divisive presence in the locker room, that is why he was fired.

The Niners signing him was also a way of keeping him away from their competitors. Did he honestly think he'd get touches over Gore, Hunter and James. All three are better then him. He's just too stupid to realize it.

No doubt, it's Harbaugh's way or the highway with his team. And it doesn't even have to do with personality, either. He wanted a different style of QB despite the fact that Alex Smith was playing well, and he made the decision to switch to Kaepernick. He's just molding his team to his philosophy of play. His approach has its strengths and weaknesses. A number of fans have pointed out on this site that Jacobs might have been the difference in being able to score at the goal line in the final plays of the super bowl.

message to Jacobs = don't bite the hand that......FED-YU.

Both Harbaugh brothers are somewhat polarizing personalities, often irritating TV fans by their sideline antics.
Both are also coaches that win, and sometimes irritate players who don't like being told that they aren't earning their paycheck.
Jacobs is over the hill and bitter, Harbaugh will be around for a while, and will keep winning.

As an opposing fan, you never wanted your team to go into the later stages of a game knowing your heroes were gonna get a major dose of him. And - he wasn't afraid to stir up a rivalry.

Always had my respect...

Little known fact: Jacobs started at Auburn, where he couldn't even get on the field because we had Cadillac Williams and Ronnie Brown. He'd come in during the second half, and he had something like an 11 yard per carry average. He got frustrated and got in Tuberville's doghouse so he transferred to Southern Illinois.

No kidding.

It appears some have a much higher opinion of Harbaugh that I do.

Typical Giants players/ex-players running their mouths. Nothing to see here.
