New York Giant Brandon Jacobs lost his cool, and almost lost his helmet, during a Colts vs Giants 2010 football match-up last night. NFL baller Brandon Jacobs threw his helmet into the stands after losing to the Colts. The fan who caught the discarded Brandon Jacobs helmet didn’t want to give it up, and you can see the video of him holding tight to the helmet and arguing with stadium security over the matter.
(The helmet was eventually returned by security to Brandon Jacobs. See video of the Brandon Jacobs helmet incident during the Colts vs Giants 2010 game below.)
Colts vs Giants 2010: Brandon Jacobs Throws Helmet, Tantrum (VIDEO HERE)
What do you think? Should the fan who was hit by or managed to catch Brandon Jacobs’ helmet during the Colts vs Giants 2010 game last night have been able to keep it? Considering the expensive NFL-grade helmets are practically designed to withstand the impact of several mack trucks landing on one’s head, they have to be pretty darn solid. It seems Brandon Jacobs’ helmet and reckless actions could have easily injured someone. What should his punishment be?
Fans often keep items that stray from the infield and into the stands, like a pop foul ball or home-run hit. What about when a grown man and pro NFL player like New York Giants’ Brandon Jacobs throws a tantrum, and wields his helmet recklessly about?
Brandon Jacobs helmet was sent flying into fan seating which likely included children and those simply not paying attention to the fact that a helmet may come hurtling at them out of nowhere. Should there be a consequence for his action? Like, losing an expensive helmet maybe? Just sayin’…

Adam Robert of Tucson, AZ, who grew up in the New York area rooting for the Giants, tells TCHE he most certainly thinks the Brandon Jacobs helmet incident was reckless, and that the pro baller should face the music. “The fan should have gotten to keep the helmet Brandon Jacobs was dumb enough to hurl into the crowd. Sorry, if I threw something of value into a crowd, do you think security would bend over backwards to get it back for me? My stupidity, my problem. Jacobs also needs to be suspended for a while, learn a lesson. Lose some money maybe.”
And lose money he will if the NFL does suspend him, which they almost have to following such an outburst on the field, in front of families and cameras. Brandon Jacobs displayed a serious anger problem during the Colts vs Giants 2010 game Sunday night, and the NFL simply can’t ignore it.
