Report: Coughlin originally cut Dodge after game

A report says M. Dodge was cut after Sunday's game, but New York coach Tom Coughlin then changed his mind (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Giants coach Tom Coughlin cut P Matt Dodge after Sunday’s game when Dodge made a mistake and punted the ball to DeSean Jackson and … well … you know the rest of the story. Then, Coughlin changed his mind.

That’s what Howard Eskin of 610WIP radio in Philadelphia is reporting, although, according to Rapid Reporter Alex Raskin, a Giants spokesman has condemned Eskin’s tweets.

Eskin reported that Coughlin saw Dodge – who’s been on a bit of a rollercoaster this year – in tears after the game and told him to get out of the locker room and that he was no longer a member of the Giants.

The clear impression on the team was that Dodge had been cut. And if you saw the way Coughlin yelled at Dodge on the sideline after the game, that wouldn’t have been a bad assumption to make.

But a day later, Coughlin said he was sticking with Dodge as the team’s punter. For now, at least.

Why, oh WHY WASNT HE CUT!? How much longer can we take of this?? I believe it was after the Detroit game that we all expected him to be cut, and wanted him to be cut. After that game it was like ENOUGH IS ENOUGH get rid of the bum, but no he was kept around to phuck up yet another game. And lets get this straight, nobody should be blaming him for the loss, what we blame him for is HIS PLAY. He is by far the worst punt ive ever seen. This is ridiculous that he is still on the team, absolutely ridiculous.

don't blame this loss on Dodge. Heck, don't even blame Coughlin. All 53 players on this team get the blame for the loss. By thinking the game was in hand, they stopped trying. The offense was awful down the stretch and the defense looked like the Michigan Wolverines defense i see every Saturday.

sure he made a mistake, and so did the other 10 guys who did not bring him down.  did he also let the eagles score the 21 points to tie the game, and cause the offense to punt? coach looking for a scapegoat, look in the mirror TOM, you may see cowher behind you. how many times did tom change his mind when his defense could not stop vick!!!!.
