Brandon Jacobs was at first reluctant to choose. Finally, he settled on one. It was LaRon Landry.

The Giants running back was discussing his highlight runs and whether he was more satisfied by the run in which he ran over Landry, the Redskins’ safety, in the season opener in 2008, or the move he put on Bears safety Major Wright in the open field on Monday night that caused Wright to fall down and allowed Jacobs to run into the end zone.

“Whatever comes,” he said when first asked whether he prefers to run people over or make them look foolish. “Whatever situation it is and however it comes, I can do both. It doesn’t really matter.”

When pressed further and asked to specifically compare the two runs, though, Jacobs chose the one against the Redskins.

“The LaRon Landry run,” he said. “That was an open field run, I ran him over in the open field. But this one (against Wright) wasn’t too far away. For somebody who’s as big as I am to be able to do something like that, that’s also special too. I just want to get the opportunity to keep going out there and make things like that happen either way.”
