Giants Punter Creates HELL for Man w/ Same Name

12/20/2010 12:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Moments after NY Giants punter Matt Dodge stupidly kicked away the game yesterday ... tons of angry fans went to Twitter hoping to unload on Dodge's account -- but they found the WRONG Matt Dodge.

In case you missed the game -- Dodge was supposed to punt the ball away from Philadelphia Eagles star DeSean Jackson in the final seconds of a tied up game ... but he didn't ... and Jackson scored.

After the game, another guy named Matt Dodge was blasted with Twitter hate mail -- people calling him a "chode blaster" and advising him to go into the witness protection program.

Matt Dodge (not the punter) responded, "Whoa, just got hella twitter spammed thanks to that gawtdamn NY Giants punter, also named matt dodge. Think he'll buy my account?"

As for the other Matt Dodge (punter) -- there's speculation the Giants will cut his ass this week.

The Eagles were likely to have made the field goal and won anyway. The punt was from deep in the Giant's own territory, but it's true that he failed to follow the plan.

What about the rest of the team that gave up 3 touchdowns in the span if a few minutes, or the ones that did not know how to tackle, I would be firing the coach don't blame the punter.

what a country... first thing this idiot thinks about is how can he make money. Punter Matt Dodge should give him some money so that he can get his GED and maybe learn how to write.

TMZ, stay out of Sports.... you must have been the dweebs growing up.(probably still are)
The snap was bad and that was the best punt he could get away without being blocked.

Giant fans have nobody else to blame so they r blaming him!! Dodge wasn't on the field when the eagles made,what was it like 3 touchdowns in 7 minutes! I'm a giants fan but blaming him for loosing is bulls.hit..TAKES A TEAM TO LOSE JUST LIKE IT TAKES A TEAM TO WIN!if the defense would of being their job they wouldn't have been able to score!!

When are people that make threats over Twitter going to be prosecuted? This whole social media world is out of control and needs to have regulations so normally adjusted people can't get threatened and stalked by those with no life skills and lack of any type of moral compass - just my opinion.

"Giants Punter Creates HELL for Man w/ Same Name"
No, he didn't. The DAs who sent twitters to the wrong person are to blame for being such stupid Buttheads (and poor loosers).
