  • Tynes is a good kicker but please don't say clutch

    A lot of people here are calling this guy clutch. I don't know when this started but he's clearly not a clutch kicker. He is a useful reliable kicker under 40 yards sure, but has he hit a GW FG while we were losing? Ever? Most of his big FG have come during tie games.

    He kicked us to the Super Bowl twice. Just because he can't kick a certain range doesn't mean he isn't clutch.
    Mood: WOOF!

      He was 1/3 in his first attempt. Last year he kicked an extra point. That isn't clutch.

        Because he missed one field goal?

          He's been accurate....that's the most I'll say about him.

          Inside 50 yards, he's okay. Outside 50 yards, you might as well go for the first down or punt.

              i agree completely. He had 2 tries on Sunday night. Inexcusable.

                a game winning field goal is a game winning field goal. Why does have to be when the team is losing???

                  Tied or losing, you make two FG's to send your team to two Super Bowls on the road in some terrible field conditions and you must have some clutch ability. Some people need to do some research, Tynes was with the Chiefs before he came to the Giants and he made multiple last second winning FG's for KC which is what made his name in this league and probably the main reason the Giants brought him in originally.

                      Jeez.

                      An NFC Championship winning FG in Green Bay, an NFC Championship winning FG in San Francisco, a last second winner in Dallas at the opening of Jerry's Folly and that's without even thinking about it.

                      He came up short on a 54 yarder, sh!t happens. The guy's a good kicker, he's come on a ton since he started with us.

                        Most of those were in his first couple years with Giants
                        since 2009 under 30 yds...39/41
                        under 40....20/25
                        under 50....13/17
                        over 50.....4/8

                        looks to me like like hes damn good at the ones he should be and more than acceptable anything over 40...and let us remember he kicks at least 1/3 of his games in cold weather

                            Clutch:•helpful during a difficult situation or period of time. Something that "came through in the clutch", that is, came through in a difficult or trying time.

                            1. GB Game, during some of the worse conditions ever recorded.
                            2. SF Game, rainy, wet and slippery.

                            I will take those "clutch kicks" over any other filed goal Tynes has missed, those are the crucial ones.

                            If your leg isn't strong enough to make a kick then there's nothing you can really do about it. Go and ask a quarterback to make a deep pass when his arm isn't stron enough.

                              Anything over 50 I HOPE for success but I can't realistically expect it.

                              Tynes worries me more in the "gimme" distance when the game is not on the line more than anything.

                              Two of his field goals in the SF game each made it by a foot, both make able distances. Yeah they were good, but he can make your *** pucker.
