Thursday Night Football: Can Brandon Jacobs Carry the Load?

Brandon Jacobs just found out that his top comparable is Wes Ours.

If you were to name two talented quarterbacks in today’s NFL that could also be the poster children for throwing “What are you doing?” passes, it’d be hard to not pinpoint Jay Cutler and Eli Manning. Both tremendously gifted passers can sling the ball around the field, but both make consistent bonehead moves that make any football watcher cringe.
