Thread: Tynes Misses

  1. #1

    Tynes Misses

    I noticed on both of Tynes FG misses, it appeared the snap was slightly off target to the right. I wonder if this is throwing off the timing.

    Most likely. Those three guys, Weatherford, Tynes, and DeOssie have been the one constant unit on the team. I don't think it's anything alarming...yet.

    Tynes is Tynes.....I've accepted that he's going to miss some easy FGs every now and then, and that he is pretty much ineffective from >50 yards.

    He's hitting 87% right now, and from what I understand, 80%+ is considered pretty solid.

    I think having Weatherford holding for him has worked well.

    Maybe he has a tired leg from having to kick so many FGs?

    DeOssie has been uncharacteristically off the last couple of games.

    +1. I'm a big defender of Tynes. Giants want to draft a young version of Adam Vinateri? Be my guest. Other than that, I'm very happy that we have Tynes as our kicker. Kicked us to two SB's and his FG percentage is good.

    I used to bash Tynes alot.....but after winning the 2nd Super Bowl, I've just come to accept that the coaching staff knows best on this guy.

    I really wish he could hit from 50+..... but 87% is 87%.

    He has proven he is clutch. I do wish he had a stronger leg.

    I actually don't trust em, and just had this debate a week or so ago.. He makes most of the stuff u expect NFL kickers to make, but is not a guy i feel everytime is out there will knock down the kick, and when it gets any kinda deep, u almost feel hes gonna miss, which is a instinct i feel should be the other way, it he was a really good kicker..

    Hes solid, but i think we could upgrade, at risk of finding worse though...
