    Are you thinking Matt Dodge instead? I know Desean returned a punt on him.
    I thought the same thing. Tynes wasn't known for his touch backs but I thought he was a pretty good place kicker for the organization.

      Where do we begin with this?

      All right I'll start with a punter. Yes, Matt Dodge was a disaster from start to finish and Reese did a terrible job of not lining up a jouneyman to stabilize that situation. The guy was eratic and worst of all a head case. I have said many times that you can hide an OL project because of the size of the roster. There is nowhere to hide a punter who is a work in progress. We tried to do that and it was an unmitigated disaster.

      In addition to being one of our worst starters ever, he was clearly our worst punter ever or at least back through the 70's.
      No one remembers who came in second.

        Make a team of the worst giants you have actually seen play. You dont have to go in to each position if you dont want to. You can just go by corps. Stick to guys who played significantly not bench warmers who barely saw the feild

        Ive been watching since 2000

        QB- Kerry "make it a double" Collins

        RB- Ron " pass the cupcakes" Dayne

        WR- Ramses "should be playing basketball instead" Barden

        OL- Luke " move AFTER the ball is snapped?" Petitgout

        DL-William " no motor" Joseph

        LB- Kevin "softer than cotton candy" lewis

        DB- stumped on this one at the moment

        K-Lawrence " take it to the house Deshaun" Tynes
        it was actually Matt Dodge that punted the ball to Jackson if your referring to the game winning punt in 2010.. However I'm thinking there may have been a play similar to what happened to alabama to end the iron bowl. I remeber a long FG being returned for a TD against the giants although I don't remember if Tynes was the kicker or if desean was the returner
        Football has been very, very good to us.
        After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
        But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

        # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

        1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
        2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
        3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
        4-New York Giants!!!
        5-NE
        Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

            Checked it out and it happened in 2006 when Jay Feely attempted a 52 yard FG vs the Bears with 11:20 left in the game. Rookie Devin Hester caught it 8 yards deep in the endzone and stood there for several seconds then came out and raced down the side line almost untouched for a TD as the giants fell asleep..

                  Kerry Collins had a pretty good career. Dave Brown was much worse as a Giant.

                  Elvis Patterson was nicknamed "Toast" but really wasn't that bad.

                  Tynes was a very good clutch kicker, why would he be on any list.

                    Luke wasn't the worst left tackle I've seen....if you catch my drift.

                      Those were the dog days for safeties around here.
                      JR fumbled that one I believe. Kenny Phillips had lingering "knee issues" throughout camp be we chose to keep an overabundance at WR and made no moves to bolster ourselves at safety. As it turned out Phillips played little if at all leading to his micro surgery. That left us with CC and Rouse and led to the signing of Rolle. The signing of Rolle proved once again that when you are desperate, the agents will know it and you will overpay for free agents. At least Rolle has played like a star which is more than we can say for Baas (another desperation move) and Canty.

                                Good lord if you think Kerry Collins is the worst QB you've ever seen play, you are SPOILED!

                                Kerry was pretty damned good, the Giants went to the Super Bowl with him, and had a field day over the Vikings in the NFC Championship Game. Unfortunately the trouncing in that Super Bowl tarnished him.

                                And we had a parade of tragedy before Kerry all the way back to Phil Simms getting cut. Dave Brown and Kent Graham were truly mediocre and sometimes bad. Danny Kannel was in over his head.

                                Then if you go back to Simms' early days he was always getting injured and Parcells chose to start Jeff Rutledge over him. Lots of terrible there.

                                In the modern era, the Giants can be proud of YA Tittle, Fran Tarkenton, Phil Simms, and Eli Manning as franchise QBs. I'd put Kerry Collins at the head of the next class.
