Matt Dodge inspired many Giants fans' to cringe, curse and even cry throughout the season. It is no secret that Dodge is on the hot seat—and has been since he began his career as a Giant. Dodge's struggles lasted all season, even before his fateful punt to DeSean Jackson in the last Eagles game. At times, he struggled to catch snaps and had inconsistent hang time and length on his punts.
The Giants will have another punter in camp next season—or there will be a riot in New York. Donahue is considered the best punter in the draft, and because punters are rarely drafted high, he should still be there when the Giants make their final pick.
Punting in New York is a high pressure gig, as Dodge proved last year. The fans have a short leash—even if the coach doesn't. It might not be the best position for a rookie, but if there are few other options, don't be surprised to see the Giants snag a punter late.
