    by the way, i asked u in another thread dunno if u saw, slightly off topic so either a short response or i guess PM me? What do u think of Mingo compared to ansah and jones? i rank it mingo, ansah, jones (and admittedly dont know half of what u know on rookie prospects)
    I'll have to check it out but I noticed Redeye replied to your question. Mingo really isn't a guy I'd want to put on the LoS majority of his snaps where he would be better playing as a stud SOLB who has better mobility than someone like Kiwi to not be a complete liability in coverage. Theoretically speaking, Mingo is someone you would put at RDE for obvious passing situations while you slot your Tuck type DE on the inside. So you would put Mingo at RDE, JPP at LDE, and Tuck at 3tech on 3rd and longs. Just how I see him in a 4-3.

      Tynes got the yips??? You should check his percentages for last season. The biggest thing with Tynes is he can't really hit past 50. Every fan watching knew he had no shot whatsoever at the 54 yarder at the end of the Eagles game. Not his fault, he just doesnt have a big leg.

      David Akers may have got the "yips". Tynes did not.

        Maybe they should get an awful kicker so they actually try to score TDs in the redone instead of settling for 3 every time.

            Don't you think it's about time?
            I mean, no offense, we appreciate that he kicked us to 2 Super Bowls but how many more games does the old man have left in his right leg?
            Why wasn't he on the field in the first Eagles game with 24 seconds left and no timeouts?
            He couldn't kick a 42 yard field goal????
            Still can't figure that one out.
            That win would have put us in the playoffs.
            Is another year older going to make Coughlin even less confident?

              unless the team can find a kicker who is better than Tynes and will sign for the vet minimum then it will be Tynes next year

                I have no loyalty to Tynes. If they can find better, great. But the things that went wrong in that Eagle game have nothing to do with Tynes. Of all the things that kept us out of the playoffs this year, he is at the bottom of the list.

                  I get the feeling they aren't interested in a kicker right now, even though he can't kick anything over 50yrds he's consistent when it's 40 yards or less and the Giants are satisfied with that.

                      Not saying Tynes was the reason.
                      Maybe you should read it again....

                        Weren't satisfied against the Eagles.
                        I think he would have put it right through the uprights!

                          You do realize that it is very probable that the original play call was for a safe play to gain a few more yards for the FG and that Eli liked the coverage he saw and changed the play at the line. They certainly didn't throw that bomb because they didn't trust Tynes from 40.
