We're all familiar with Matt Dodge's ill-fated punt against the Eagles last December, which DeSean Jackson returned 65 yards for the game-winning score as time ran out, effectively ending New York's season.
"We're going to do our best to put the ball on the sidelines or out of bounds and limit the room that he has to work with," Weatherford told the New York Daily News. "Ideally, I'd like to have the ball out of bounds -- obviously that's what (Tom) Coughlin's looking for."
Weatherford also wants to make it clear that a punter's job -- especially angling punts away from predatory return-men -- is more strenuous than you'd think.
"It's not like a Madden video game, where you point the arrow and push 'X,'" Weatherford said. "There's some skill involved in it."
Of course, of course.
Weatherford's job on Sunday is crystal clear -- keep the punting game out of the headlines and Jackson out of the end zone. Anything less, and -- well -- just ask Matt Dodge.
