Lovers of fine television theatre cameos shed a tear when Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul declined to rumble against Kurt Angle in Monday's TNA Wrestling event. But fear not, fine patrons: running back Brandon Jacobs will reportedly take his place on Monday night.

That's according to Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com, who writes that the 6'4", 264-pound Giants running back will be the one squaring off against Angle in a segment that will air Thursday on Spike TV.

If we want to take this a step further (which is one step too far, really), let's now point out that Jacobs is actually a better fit than JPP when it comes to wrestling. Sure, JPP is a freakish athlete.

But Jacobs is a brute force. He's a tippy-toed wrecking ball whose wreckless behavior is a perfect symbol of wrasslin. And while JPP's willingness to guarantee a victory might be a fantastic wrestling cliché, Jacobs willingness to insult his opponent's wife is the most wrestling thing ever.

According to Marvez, Jacobs won't actually be a contestant in any match, but there "may be some degree of physicality that wouldn't violate his NFL contract."

We hope that's real enough for you, mister.

you cant overturn a call on the field when you have no evidence. noone could tell he was CLEARLY out like the 1st poster said. And Ive been going on every N.Y Thread? It was about Desean jackson, you know the player on the EAGLES? A eagles thread. And I never said they werent good I said they were 9-7. Not like they were 12-4 like a lot of the giant fans act like going into next season. Get you facts straight rookie

SF can't get past the fact that their special teams gave us the game. I guess we should whine about the late hits on Eli and on the first SF TD where Vernon Davis clearly stepped out of bounds.  Missed Calls.

I wonder if he fumbles the ball in the ring the ref will say his forward progress stopped.
