Kicker Weatherford cuz if we had Matt Dodge we definitely wouild not have made it all the way to becoming the Super Bowl Champs.

it's like comparing apples and oranges...

Weatherford with his directional and accurate pinning punts have been absolutely important, brilliant, solid,...etc in the Giants season and playoff run. You got a chance to see him at his best in the Superbowl game. Patriots were pinned off the bat and the Giants got the safety. Patriots were pinned at least 2-3 more times in that game. There's really no argument here when Dodge should not even be included in these conversations anymore.

Mitchell. As great as Weatherford is and and as important as punters are, linebackers are just have a bigger impact. There was no way we were bringing Dodge back. I think with any average to above average punter we would still have won (although it's of course impossible to say).

K Mitch and Blackburn would've been the better comparison seeing as how they're both LB's.

I love both. Without Weatherford, we probably lose 1 or 2 more games this season at Least. Blackburn has also been a crucial addition to this group of LB's. Kudos to Reese for the awesome job he's done this season.

Weatherford. We dont make the playoffs let alone win the superbowl with Dodge.
