Probably - I remember we used to talk about Jacobs more as a run with player than a tagger. As someone who would do what you just described - take his opponent on and try to beta^ them as much as nullify them ala someone like De Boer.That article is broadly right Ferbs but you can be assured Jacobs didn't tag Fyfe after qtr time - at least not in the manner that he was doing in the first qtr. Jacob's played his own game after 1/4 time and won the ball well as an offensive weapon.
But I can't remember the details - just my impression from the day, that Fyfe dominated early and Freo were on top, Jacobs was on top later and we won.
^That was a typo but its kind of appropriate.
