    Tynes is a reliable kicker with the game on the line. Nobody can kick 56 yards against the wind in the rain.

    Clutch? The guy made one easy FG in perfect conditions in SF. In Lambeau he missed 2 before he made the game winner in 2007. We can do better.

    the only consistent part of the Giant this year was the kicking/punting game.
    With the "real" issues the team has do we need to harp on Tynes????

    Tynes is consistent....inside 40 yards. Whoopee.

    It's a moot point, really......the Giants will keep Tynes, and we'll keep punting from the opponent's 35 because Tynes can't kick a long field goal.

    The only thing that tells is that Tynes has had more kicks under 50 yards than the others and only Dan Bailey has had more over 50 yards and that we're not getting touchdowns when we are under 50 yards...instead settling for kicks.

I thought Michael Eisen made that point in one of his "Inside the numbers" post game articles last year.

    He was 100% (11 of 11) in attempts/made FGs under 30 yards this year. He made 14 of 16 attempts at 30-39 yards (and he made 7 of 9 attempts from 40-49 yeards). So, no, Tynes has not "inexplicably" missed "what are basically chip shots sometimes".

    And if you are referring to attempts made from 30 yards and beyond as "chip shots", you might want to ask a pro place kicker if that's the case.

    It's certainly your perogative to dislike a player, but please don't make up nonexistent "stats" to justify your dislike.
    You just pwned that dude. Bet he doesn't even reply.
