Excerpt: "Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes is on pace to score more points than anyone in NFL history ever has in one season. Thatís any player ó not just kickers.

Tynes, named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month, has 94 points in eight games, the seasonís halfway point. Heís on pace for 188 points, which would top the record for any player (LaDainian Tomlinsonís 186 points in 2006) and shatter the record for a kicker (David Akersí 166 points last season).

ďItíd take a very similar first half,Ē Tynes said. ďI donít know if thatís going to be duplicated.Ē

Tynes said he thinks the Giantsí red zone success will improve, thus limiting field goal opportunities. Either way, Tynes ó widely considered the teamís most underrated player ó has nailed 24 of 26 field goals and is 22-of-22 on extra points (he hasnít missed an extra point since 2007)." Read more...

Talk about a bargaining chip to have in a contract season.
Just like Weatherford last season, I expect the Giants to sign Tynes to a 4-5 year contract.

If he breaks it...it means our offense is still not scoring TDs when it needs to. Too many FGs. Sorry Tynes...I hope you don't break it...unless, of course, all your points are PATs! !!

It's good to have such a reliable kicker, especially with the lack of TD's last week

As much as I love Tynes I hope he doesn't break it simply because I want significant red zone improvement. I want TDs, enough w/ the 4-5 FG games....

I'm thinking what everyone else is thinking. It's good that he's reliable, but it's bad because it says the G-Men offense has troubles in opponents' territory. I'm just hoping for the offense to improve in these situations. It starts with the play calling. We need to pass more often down there instead of running every single play. But I'll be happy for Tynes if he gets it and as long the G-Men keep finding a way to win.

What I find funny is that you will hear NFL players past and present make comments about kickers not being players and just being kickers, but they are so detrimental to the game. Kickers are usually the leading scorers and games are commonly decided on the foot of a kicker. It was so important in Dan Reeves' day that we carried a kick off specialist and field goal kicker in Brad Daluiso and David Treadwell.


Even the punter is important for field position. How long did we search for a punter before finally getting Feagles?

If I had to make a criticism of Tynes, it's that he doesn't have a long FG range. I don't remember the last time he made one over 50 yards.

I wish people would stop bragging about us having a 2nd ranked offense. He's the main reason why. Anyone who doesn't see that is blind.

I still say it was DD at tight end.

That is great for Tynes. He is such a reliable kicker, and he deserves a decent contract. But I do feel our redzone inefficiency is helping Tyne's cause. 5 fg last week alone. If we continue to win game on field, then I hope gets the record and some

I believe Vinatieri would surprise a lot of you as the greatest kicker ever. Playing for the patsies who DOMINATED their opponents by winning all of their Sb by what? 3 ****ing points. Looking at their stellar runs, this being a true dynasty, we can see that they outplayed and outscored their opponents by literally out kicking their opponents. Never underestimate the guy at the end of the bench.

I for one hope that he doesn't get it because that will mean we are struggling in the red zone!
