    Matt dodge is alive and well

    I may be in the minority, but I really don't blame him for that crazy loss to the eagles. He wasn't the one that allowed 21 points on defense to let them tie the game. The loser fans that sent him death threats are horrible fans. Good to see that he has moved on with his life.

    Fans are way more emotionally invested than fans are. Some fans' lives fully revolve around the team that they like. Scapegoating one person is too easy to do. I was piss ed after that loss, but I got over it. Some people are still holding on to it.

    So that game was not all his fault. But he had a really bad season, many shanked punts. Next year he looked better in training camp but it was too late. No hard feelings, but he cost us a playoff run
    #80 Get better soon.

    Stop it. He didn't give up 21 points in 8 final minutes of the game to get to the final punt. 21 points, for god's sake

    I'm betting he was repeatedly telling himself: "at least I'm not Billy Bucks" and "at least I'm not Scott Norwood". There's always schadenfreud to get you through a bad day.

    31-10 lead with 8:17 left in the game.... Blame the punter. This was your typical Tom Coughlin special. I always hated the fact he got left out to dry. First off, it was 31-10. I dont care if our punter was Eli, it wouldnt be his fault we lost. Secondly, the snap was pretty bad, high and over his right shoulder if I can remember. He had to turn to get the ball and quickly fire a punt off. And lastly, its the damn job for the punt team to tackle Desean. There were 10 other ST members who failed, especially since the punt was originally muffed by Jackson and he had to retreat.

    Dodge had a hell of a leg.

    Lets not act like Wing didnt suffer from brain farts vs the Eagles this season too. His 1st game vs them was atrocious and Sproles did in fact return one on us. Its just there was much less on the line.

    What do you mean by "this was a typical tom Coughlin special?"

    Did anyone realize how thick, solid, and tight Matt Dodge was? He could easily challenge Weatherford for most jacked punter in Giant's history.
