So Desean's play made me think. Which game winning punt return against the Giants was better? The Brian Westbrook punt return of 2003 or the DeSean Jackson punt return of 2010? Some details of each after the jump.
The Brian Westbrook punt return:
-The Eagles were down a field goal instead of tied, so the worst that could happen would be a loss instead of a tie in 2003.
-The Eagles completed a 21 point fourth quarter comeback in 2010.
-Both times, the player was not the primary punt returner in the game and had to be inserted in that situation. In 2003, Westbrook was never the primary punt returner. In 2010, Desean didn't return punts because he was nursing a foot injury.
-In 2010, Desean Jackson nearly missed the game due to a foot injury which reportedly hurt his lateral movement.
-Neither player fielded the punt particularly well prior to the return, with Westbrook fielding it on a hop and Desean bobbling it and then picking it up.
So what say you, BGN? Which was better?
Which game-winning, Giant backbreaking punt return for a touchdown was better? Desean Jackson of 2010 or Brian Westbrook of 2003?
