  • Giants' Tynes On Pace For NFL Record For Points Scored In A Season

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giant...w3wLAoEfb6PzXJ

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

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

    “It’d take a very similar first half,” Tynes said. “I don’t know if that’s going to be duplicated.”

    Tynes said he thinks the Giants’ red zone success will improve, thus limiting field goal opportunities. Either way, Tynes — widely considered the team’s most underrated player — has nailed 24 of 26 field goals and is 22-of-22 on extra points (he hasn’t 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.

      Just another piece JR has to worry about man...I have faith he will find a way to keep all the key players signed.

        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.
