    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....
