View Full Version : The end of my traditional Tynes rant

Every year, I rant about replacing Tynes with someone who has a stronger leg.

For some reason, this year is different. I suppose it's the 2nd Super Bowl victory. He wasn't counted to kick much during the playoffs, but he handled them (8/10).

So, instead of *****ing and moaning about finding a new kicker, I'll focus my comments on the Osi contract saga.

......you're welcome, Giants MB.

Tynes has made 2 of the biggest kicks in Giants history.

Tynes comes through when it matters. He reminds me of Vinateri. Vinateri never has about average percentage of kicks made and average leg strength, but he is as clutch as it gets.

Unlike Jay mother ****ing Feely. I hate Feely with a burning passion. I have never been so angry after a Giants game after Feely missing 3 field goals.

You can always get better at every position on a football team. Players know this (hence competition), coaches, front office, etc. But for the first time since being born, I am comfortable with the kicker on our team. Not saying there is no reason to be looking around for something better. But I wouldn't hate it if they didn't.

I'm fine with him now, but do you remember as he missed 2 field goals that would have won the 2007 NFC CG if he hadn't missed and made us wait for the 3rd?

I'll admit he came through in big moments for us and I have so much respect for him for what he's done in the 07 and 12' post seasons.

That being said, lets not kid ourselves, he's not that great. Anything 40 yards and over and I'm expecting a missed FG.

Please don't.......... it's just as pointless as the Tynes comments.

Well, he still can barely kick touchbacks 5 yards closer. :) Tynes is fine with me. So is Stevie Weatherford. Jets are ******ed.

Moving the kickoff spot up pretty much covered up Tynes one real vulnerability.

kickers are free game ... trash away, i've certainly been on Tynes over the years ... when we played the game in Wembley a few years back ... i had a Bend it Like Tynes thread going</P>


but i agree, he was solid last year and he obviously has experience now kicking in huge spots, which is very important</P>


and the new kickoff spot allows him to get the ball far enough to where the returner has a tough decision as to whether he should run it out or take a knee</P>

Weatherford is a stud.....he's a worthy successor to Feagles.

This, and he has become much more consistent on extra points and near field goals. The first few years, I used to hold my breath.

he hasn't missed as many "gimme"s (under 40 yards) the last couple years. That was my biggest knock on him.

What do you want a flashy stats guy or a clutch game winning guy? Because very rarely are they ever the same guy and that is the beauty of Tynes he is average but comes through when needed the most...even if he needs an extra attempt or two. lol

Not meant to pick on you I was just quoting someone.

LOL, very true ! But lets take in consideration that in all the history of Lambeau Field no field goal longer than 40 yards had ever been made in the playoffs and by God that was the first and a beauty !

I still don't have great confidence in Tynes over 40yds, but the kick in OT against the niners did help me feel a little better.

That being said it really drives me crazy watching other kickers boom it past the end zone on kick offs and even with the extra 5 yards Tynes still hardly does it.

i would LOVE to see an old 2007 nfc championship game official thread and see all the people who were: a)close to death or b)wishing death upon tynes in very graphic ways following his second FG miss

i think jacksonville traded up to the first to get the best kicker so we went with wilson

I love Tynes -- guy's a money kicker and I don't want him going anywhere unless he starts missing money kicks.

Leave the guy alone.
