I know the coach said Big Dex wasn't the reason why the Giants lost.......but you got to feel bad for the big fella.

plays. He literally caused them to sn@tch defeat from the jaws of victory. Jobs have been lost in the NFL for less. He is enough of a talent that I don't think that will be his fate, though.

Jumped offsides on a last second missed field goal attempt by the Redskins allowing them a retry and a successful attempt the 2nd time to win the the game as time expired.

I thought him jumping and the ball being snapped were simultaneous. Was close though. Seen that call go both ways.

It's easy to blame Dex for the loss but it's lazy IMO

Giants had opportunities to put the game away and didn't.

TH4 for the WFT HANDED THEM a TD opportunity throwing a pic deep in their territory and the Giants scored a FG.

Then the WFT proceeded to march down the field aided by penalties and making plays when it counted.

Fans can make Dex the scapegoat but this is definitely a team driven loss

Scapegoat is the right term. Mistakes at the end of the game are amplified because of when they happen. But the game is 60 minutes long. A hold in the 1st quarter that stalled a possible TD drive that turned into a FG instead is easily forgotten. Even though those lost 4 points cost your team the game.
