Matt Dodge : The play in question, of course, is DeSean Jackson's "walk-off" punt return touchdown to beat the Giants on Sunday at New Meadowlands. The 65-yard return capped an incredible 7:28 stretch in the fourth quarter in which the Eagles scored 28 unanswered points for an improbable 38-31 win over the Giants.
Those watching the game live, along with the subsequent replays surely saw Giants head coach Tom Coughlin giving rookie punter Matt Dodge an earful, practically before Jackson even crossed the goal line.
Matt Dodge deserved that earful, and he deserves criticism. However, if this loss costs the Giants a playoff spot -- something that very well could happen now -- the 2010 season will not be lost because of Dodge's gaffe.
