    Hits a 61 yard game tying FG, then missed like a 38 yard kick for the win. Unbelievable.

    I had a poster name this clown in a list of kickers "he'd take over Tynes."

      i say keep maybe he do some extra work to get his leg strength up if 3-5 more yards out of his leg that would be even better.

        Exactly. And that's exactly what I don't want from my kicker.

            I dont trust him, and I never have. The guy just inexplicably misses what are basically chip shots sometimes, and I even recall him missing a couple of XP's along the way. This season alone, didn't he miss from 26-ish? Even I could have kicked that damn thing through.

            Cant hang your hat on what he did in those past games. While I'll always be grateful for those winning kicks, the Giants can certainly do better

              Tynes is average at best. But if there were lots of great kickers waiting in the wings, Mason Crosby and David Akers wouldn't have jobs.

              Crosby hit 71% from 30-39 yards this year, and the Packers repeatedly passed up FG attempts that would be automatic for most teams because they didn't trust him. Despite that, they didn't cut him. Akers was equally bad, but they guy they just picked up to challenge him, Billy Cundiff, was cut from 2 or 3 teams this year!

              The Giants should try to give Tynes some competition in camp next year, but he's far from the biggest problem with this team.

                He had to kick 36 freaking FGs under fifty yards. Henery was the next closest with 30 attempts, and only beat him by 1%!

                    This means nothing. Kicking is far too situational to just throw some % stats to validate your point and <50 is pretty vague.

                      Tynes has not missed an extra point attempt since 2007. Four + consecutive seasons with no missed extra point attempts (he missed most of 2008). He may have set a Giants record with extra points made vs attempted, although I cannot find verification right now. I thought Michael Eisen made that point in one of his "Inside the numbers" post game articles last year.

                      He was 100% (11 of 11) in attempts/made FGs under 30 yards this year. He made 14 of 16 attempts at 30-39 yards (and he made 7 of 9 attempts from 40-49 yeards). So, no, Tynes has not "inexplicably" missed "what are basically chip shots sometimes".

                      And if you are referring to attempts made from 30 yards and beyond as "chip shots", you might want to ask a pro place kicker if that's the case.

                      It's certainly your perogative to dislike a player, but please don't make up nonexistent "stats" to justify your dislike.

                              Tynes is a reliable kicker with the game on the line. Nobody can kick 56 yards against the wind in the rain.

                                Clutch? The guy made one easy FG in perfect conditions in SF. In Lambeau he missed 2 before he made the game winner in 2007. We can do better.
