Tynes has been booming the ball on kickoffs. One knock I always had on him was his foot strength, but thus far this preseason, Tynes has been reach the back off the enzone consistently. This is obviously not a major topic, but making the the opposing offense have to start on there 20 always would be very advantedgous. Tynes has also looked good kicking field goals.

I'm convinced Tynes is on steroids.

I've been impressed so far. He's also incredibly clutch in my opinion. Looking around the league, I'd say he's one of the better kickers. Glad to have him.

He's looked great. He is finally healthy and I think this has been his best camp and pre season perfromance.

Hard work, training, practice, dedication, etc usually does that through the years. To notice Tynes' development on the Giants through the seasons is an amazing story itself. Wondering what former-Jet-now-Superbowl-Champion-Giant-Punter Weatherford was thinking tonight when the Jets punter was shanking punts like there was no tomorrow.

I wonder how much of it is Tynes' progression and how much was moving kickoffs to the 35 yard line...

Inside the 43 he's money for FG's but on kickoff's he's been the biggest beneficiary of the new NFL rule moving the spot up a few yds

Yeah, he used to kick it to the 5, now to the end of the end zone...Even with the 5 yards, that's still 10 extra yard he's kicking better...

Moving up the kickoff line by 5 yards doesn't explain how he's clearing 45-yard field goals right down the middle with a lot more distance to go.

EGGS-actly. Plus, the rule was in effect last season, and he wasn't booming them to the back like he has been in the first 2 games this month.

I'll take 5

My dad and I made a comment about his kicks last night also. We used to call him "box o' chocolates" because you never know what ur gunna get. I have been finding it a lot easier to watch him kick. Maybe Weatherford has helped his confidence and since Matt "the jinx" dodge isn't around anymore.
