    In lieu of a quality replacement - yes. He's reliable.

    If only Blair Walshes would just fall out of the sky...

    No.

    The Giants can do better....Tynes is one of the reasons why the Giants missed the playoffs this season.

    The dude can't hit from outside 49 yards.....and it killed us in that loss to Philly.

    Considering late season conditions in the Meadowlands, the Giants should logically have one of the strongest kickers in the league....instead, Tynes has one of the weakest legs in the NFL.

    I plan on the Giants to be in many high pressure situations, so I wanted a kicker with no nerves. Tynes is probably a top 5 clutch kicker in the league.

    You're right, it's 100% his fault Barden decided to rape someone on the field.

    And it's 100% the fault of either of them that Eli had a senior moment and thought Nicks was wearing #13...

    Thank you Reddit for the best gif ever.

    Tynes must work hard... which is a trait that TC loves.
    He has gradually increased his kick-off distance. It was poor just 3 years ago, and has improved markedly.
    He has been very accurate, despite the misses at the end of the year, which we all always remember.
    He has proven that he can make a clutch FG in bad weather.

    I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

    No one remembers who came in second.

    I'm not going to fault Tynes for that dopey playcall by Gilbride and Eli.

    But the fact is, he missed a kick that most NFL kickers can make. Weak *** mother ****er couldn't even clear the cross bar.
