I am sure someone gave Lawrence Tynes some proper on this board previously. He's like a golfer right now in a groove, hitting his iron shots straight and true. Me, personally,Tynes always scared the crap out of me even though he's made some big kicks for us. But he looks like a totally different kicker this year. I kept saying to my wife during the game, he's hitting each ball beautifully, almost perfectly down the middle. Hope I didn't put the jinx on him for this week. But he's never been better and I think he deserves big props. We'll see what the future has in store, but I'm sure he'll figure in big time one way or another.

He's going to go 0-7 and we're going to lose by a point this weekend.

Thanks, bro. Good job.

I don't understand this thread. Is Tynes "down"? And who is kicking him?

Tynes has been solid for several years now.

Actually, I can relate to the OP's comments. I think the difference is Weatherford. They have great chemistry and trust and confidence in each other. Weatherford helps keep Tynes loose.

Tynes, Weatherford and the coverage team have gotten a lot of positive feedback.

I will admit I was one of those that wanted nothing to do with him kicking a potential winning field goal in last years SB, and I was so glad Bradshaw scored. But I must agree he looks to be very sharp this year.

I'm not going to lie: I still get a little nervous when he attempts a long field goal, and that will amplify once the wind picks up as the season progresses.

I have never evern been 100% comfortable with any kicker. There is always that..."he better ****ing make this" voice in the back of my head.

Of course some are better than others but I think its the nature of the postion

Gary Anderson of the Vikings comes to mind. Hell, even Super Bowl XXV.

I don't know Matt Bahr was about as sure as any kicker I remember for this team

i will admit to having a thread called BEND IT LIKE TYNES ... for our game in London vs. Miami a few years ago, but Tynes has really been solid .... now i will say ... Kickers do not earn the same respect as those players that risk their lives and some of our former famous coaches had zero tolerance for kickers, which is what i grew up with, but very glad to have a confident, experienced kicker that really benefitted from the new kickoff rule

Even as recently as last season, I would hold my breath on every Tynes kick. This season? No sweat. He's booming kickoffs shooting his field goals straight down the pipe. Something has changed, and Tynes is now automatic in my book.

I don't understand where the derision comes from, he's been steady for years.

2012: 10/10
2011: 27/34 (inc playoffs)
2010: 19/23
2009: 27/32
Over the same time period he's 13/17 from 40+, and 4/7 from 50+

He also kicked the Giants to the Super Bowl last year.

Excellent point.......when Weatherford came in as his holder, Tynes' improved markedly.

Full Disclosure: I used to rip on Tynes all the time. I stopped after 2011.

But he still scares me.....old habits are hard for me to break.

+1. I love Tynes. He may not have the strongest leg or be the very best kicker, but he's a gamer and he's an important cog that helped bring the Giants 2 SB rings the past few years.

If the Giants chose to draft a great kicker in a near future draft, I'd have no problem with it, but I very much trust Tynes.

a few months ago Roanoke had an article on here about Tynes, Weatherford and DeOssie! they do everything together on an off the field according to the article!

i would think that kind of postive relationship can be of a great benefit to all those guys especially Tynes cuz his job is pressure every time!

Only with the Giants for one season, but John Carney was great also.

Exactly joemorrisforprez and BigBlue1971. Who would have thought a wedding ring might have been an ice breaker:

"Lawrence Tynes noticed it back in the summer, the first time Steve Weatherford got down on one knee, caught the snap from Zak DeOssie and held for a practice field goal. Right then, Tynes, the Giants kicker, wondered what the heck was going on with the wedding ring on Weatherford’s left hand.

“The first day he held for me I said, ‘Are you gonna take that off?’ ’’ Tynes recalled yesterday. “Good thing it’s a black ring and it’s not like some diamond, shiny.”

Weatherford’s jewelry attracted plenty of attention when he scooped up DeOssie’s low snap and placed it down perfectly for Tynes, who nailed the game-winning 31-yard field goal in overtime last Sunday to send the Giants to Super Bowl XLVI against the Patriots with a 20-17 victory over the 49ers in the NFC Championship.

Up close, slow-motion replays of the kick reveal that Weatherford, in his first year as the Giants punter and holder, indeed does wear his wedding ring on the field, which is highly unusual...."

The last time I can remember anybody being down on Tynes was in the 2007 NFC CG when he missed two chances to win the game before overtime.

I think he missed several extra points that year too.

I agree with this statement to a point.....In 2007 it seemed like most on these boards hated him and he was the worst kicker in football...by 2008 there still were quite a few that still wanted a better kicker....each year the complaints have gone down....but this might be the first year that I have heard people praising him....almost like for the last couple years he hasn't even been talked about good or bad...
