Brandon Jacobs, the former New York Giants running back who retired at the conclusion of the 2013 NFL regular season, appeared on the Thursday morning edition of WFAN's “Boomer & Carton” radio program. Jacobs had some rather unflattering words to say about San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Jacobs: I have one regret in my career, and that's going to the 49ers when I could have stayed in New York. I just wanted to see what stuff was like with another team and it didn't work out. It didn't work out for me. I wasn't liked. I felt like I was being held hostage. But it is what it is. I've got two rings. Harbaugh, though, he's a b---- so it doesn't matter.

Carton: Oh geez. He's a b----?

Boomer: It doesn't sound like those two guys got along too well.

The matter was again discussed later on in the interview.

Carton: And once again, for the record, Coach Harbaugh was a bit of a b----, quote unquote, yes?

Jacobs: Excuse me?

Carton: That's what you said! I'm just making sure I have it right.”

Jacobs: I didn't hear your question.

Carton: I said that I want to make sure I have it right that in your opinion and in your experience, Coach Harbaugh in San Francisco was a...what?

Jacobs: No, it's not 'was.' He's a b----, and that's why he's never won anything.

Carton: There you have it.

Jacobs also said that, while he likely won't be watching the upcoming Super Bowl because he'll be “working,” he is hoping that the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning, the latter being the older brother of Giants quarterback Eli Manning, earn the win at MetLife Stadium, the home of the Giants. He also said the believes that the weather on February 2 will favor the Seattle Seahawks.

Other highlights included Jacobs admitting that his body didn't respond to injuries in 2013 as it had in the past. He also asked that the “49ers crap” not be mentioned in his NFL bio.

The entire interview can be heard here. It could be NSFW if you don't have headphones and you are working inside of a crowded office space.

Jacobs signed with the 49ers in the offseason following New York's Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots on February 5, 2012. The Giants twice faced the Niners in San Francisco during the title run; they lost 27-20 on November 13 of 2011, and New York avenged that defeat in the NFC Championship Game.

If Jacobs did have the figurative cup of coffee with the Niners, it was a rather short cup. He appeared in just two games and he rushed for seven yards on five attempts.

Jacobs returned to the team that drafted him back in 2005 last September, and he had two final shining moments as an active member of the club. He rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns against the Chicago Bears on October 10. In what was to be the final game of his career against hated rivals the Dallas Cowboys on November 24, Jacobs went for 75 yards on nine carries.

Never one to shy away from speaking his mind, Jacobs admitted several years ago that he hated the Cowboys. He did ultimately walk those comments back, but diehard fans of the Giants never bought the retraction. Critics can say whatever they want about the bruising running back.

Jacobs bleeds Big Blue, and he gave everything that he physically could to the team.
