This whole NFL season I have constantly heard all negative comments about the Giants kicker Matt Dodge. He cant get hang time... he cant do directionals... he whiffs on kicks. Well he is a rookie and maybe people have too much on him. Today he was BLAMED for the Giants loss. I personally watched the game and yeah that punt should of went out of bounds away from Jackson and that play shouldn't have happened. This loss wasnt just because of him it should be on Tom Coughlin. The Eagles were down 21 points in the second half and the Giants could have killed the momentum. Manningham had a fumble on the sideline and the Eagles recovered. The scored on that following drive to cut it to 14 points. Watching this game I was saying they will kick an on side kick to get it back to score again. My father ALSO said the same thing and the Eagles did kick an onside. The Giants did not see that happening and had out the normal kick off team. This was the turning point They went down and scored again and ended up tying the game. The Giants got the game clock down to 13 seconds and the punt happened and the return happened. Now if Dodge got it out of bounds or did something different sure the Giants may have won this game. Sure he will probably be fired due to the fact this is not the first time he did something like this. Coughlin should be on the hot seat for letting a 21 point lead fade away from you.
