Anthony is on a distinguished road

As I understand the article, Jacobs is not complaining about the fine - and it has nothing to do with his denying the rumors that he wants to be traded.

Yet Jacobs' situation does bring up an unrelated point: That being that both Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw should be starting, because two-back sets need to make a comeback in the NFL - and the Giants are probably the single NFL team best-suited to use this formation, in that Jacobs and Bradshaw complement one another perfectly from a style-of-play standpoint.

And my guess is that the 18-game schedule could very well spark considerable interest in two-back sets, as few if any running backs could carry a team's rushing load singlehandedly once the league does add the two extra regular-season games.
