    I considered that.
    From the 30 he regularly kicked it down to the 3-4 yard line.
    Now he often kicks it to 5 yards deep in the end zone.
    I'm sure if we had a stat that followed that KO distance, we'd find that he kicks the ball 4-6 yards, on average, deeper than he did 3 years ago.

      Yes. So tell me, if the rest of the team performed at the same level he did this year, are we watching the redskins this week end? Unless something a lot better comes along for the right $$$ you go with the Scotchman!

            But the fact is, he missed a kick that most NFL kickers can make. Weak *** mother ****er couldn't even clear the cross bar.
            You're not paying attention if you think most NFL kickers would hit that 54 yarder at the end of the game in Philly. I am not a numbers guy but I am sure someone here can research the percentages on that kick. I bet that kick gets missed by NFL kickers more than 60% of the time.

              I just think an NFL kicker should be physically capable of attempting a 50+ yard kick, just like a MLB pitcher should be able to break 90 mph with a fastball.

              And considering the weather he needs to play in, it's even more important that he has a strong leg....which, sadly, he does not.

              I'm not saying he sucks....I'm saying the Giants could do better.
              How do you know that? We could easily end up with a Matt Dodge kicker, then what? If someone substantially better is available, ok...But who is that guy exactly? Shoot a name out with that proclamation.

                It took us a long while to find Tynes. Keep the guy, he is the best thing out there at this point and he has been pretty consistent. Not every kicker is going to make all the kicks.

                  Yeah, that looks about right, although there were a handful who kicked 100% from 50+:

                  Blair Walsh: 10/10
                  Phil Dawson: 7/7
                  Matt Bryant and Justin Tucker: 4/4

                  Tynes' 1/3 is near the bottom, percentage-wise. He's deadly from any range shorter, though.

                    I'm happy with Tynes, as long as we don't overpay.. keep him! 50+ yarders are iffy by most kickers. Obviously there are a few that are really good at 50+ but not a lot. He's money under 45 yards and I'm okay with that. A team shouldn't have to depend on 50+ yard FG's to win games anyways..

                      Exactly. I consider a 50+ yard field goal miss to be more of an indictment on that team's offense rather than its kicker.

                      Teams with the most attempts from that far out were Minnesota, St Louis, Cleveland and Oakland, among others. Hardly offensive powerhouses.

                        Yup, teams with the best kickers tend to be teams that don't score a lot of TDs. Looks like most of those teams.. lol

                            he also kept them in games they would have other wise lost.....

                              In my opinion what you want from a kicker is a certain level of consistency. I think he brings that. I don't have a big issue with his struggles at 50+ yards. Very few kickers hit those consistently and if you are going to base your kicker choice on that then spend the money on improving your offense instead.

                                Totally agree, he is a very consistant kicker.. I'd rather have him then Jay Feely..
