And Another Thing



Psst. Yo, Matt Dodge.

Joe Pisarcik wants to buy you a beer.

Because of you, he is no longer the dumbest guy in New York Giants history for trying to hand off when he should have taken a knee, fumbled the handoff and turned Philadelphia's Herm Edwards, who recovered and ran it in for the winning score, into a folk hero.

Now you are, Mr. Dodge.

This after Dodge unaccountably punted the ball to DeSean Jackson of Philadelphia (Philly and New York! Again!) with 14 seconds to play, and watched Jackson run it back all the way to hand the Eagles a ridiculous comeback win. Trailing 31-10 with eight minutes to play, Philly won 38-31.

I'm trying to fathom what was going through Dodge's mind, other than a fresh unimpeded breeze, while all that was unfolding.

Some possibilities:

"Ah, crap! What did I just do?"

"Don't be ridiculous. He's not gonna run this all the way ba-"

"Hey! Hey, stop! Stop, I said!"

And last but not least ...

"Hmm. Wonder if Wal Mart's hiring."
