Connor Barth tore his achilles and will miss the season.

Good luck, Larry!

The warmer weather  
old man : 7/17/2013 11:15 am : link
should add distance to his kicks, thus making him a 'better' kicker this year(accuracy aside).
I wish him well, except aginst us, of course, and thank him for the GB kick, and not missing FGs in '46'(42 also?).
Barth apparently tore it while playing in a charity bball game...

Good for him  
Danny Kanell : 7/17/2013 11:15 am : link
His kick in GB is the single greatest kick, considering all the circumstances, i've ever experienced as a fan.

All the best to a good Giant.

That was my greatest game ive ever seen, loved everything about that game
I love Tynes...

He took years off of my life in Green Bay but ultimately got the job done. TWICE.
arcarsenal : 7/17/2013 11:22 am : link
I'll never forget the insane rollercoaster of emotion I felt within a split second when he kicked the game winner in Green Bay.

Looked like it was going wide initially and I was about to be crushed.. and then it hooked back in and everyone went crazy and the elation was off the charts.

The guy kicked us into 2 Super Bowls. Forever grateful.
AnishPatel : 7/17/2013 11:22 am : link
Thanks Tynes and good luck!
Best of luck to you Larry!

Except where it costs the Giants of course. Two huge kicks that have forever etched you in Giants lore.
Does this count towards next years

comp picks or has the deadline passed?
Best of luck, Larry

Thank you for the Super Bowl trophies.
Sucks for Barth

that guy had a monster leg

Good luck Larry you've been a clutch piece to 2 SB championships
The only players who played for the Giants last year who are still  
Optimus-NY : 7/17/2013 11:51 am : link
unrestricted free agents now to my memory are DT Rocky Bernard and H-Back Travis Beckum.
Many thanks for all you've done for the Giants  
Moondwg : 7/17/2013 11:53 am : link
Larry. You've given us many great memories.
Tynes and Matt Bahr  
an_idol_mind : 7/17/2013 11:57 am : link
will both be forever immortalized for the same reason: they weren't perfect kickers, but they came through big time when it counted.

The kick to get the team to Super Bowl XLVI wasn't quite as dramatic as the Green Bay kick, but let's not forget that the field conditions were terrible and the snap was a bad one.
Peace out Tynes  
Sonic Youth : 7/17/2013 11:57 am : link
As a Giants fan from the mid-late 90s till now, your presence has defined the golden age of Giants football to me.
Good place for him  
andrew_nyg : 7/17/2013 12:07 pm : link
the weather down there should help with his distance, and he's always been good from 40 and under.

Thanks Tynes! We get it, it's tyne to go.
After that great kick in Greenbay  
JerseyCityJoe : 7/17/2013 12:10 pm : link
I could forget and forgive anything else in his career. I wish him the best.

I don't think I ever once felt confident when he lined up for a FG even after he proved to be a good kicker.
I still get goosebumps watching that OT playoff kick...  
M.S. : 7/17/2013 12:16 pm : link
...against Green Bay.

Never thought he'd make it. No way.

Good luck Tynes  
mrvax : 7/17/2013 12:25 pm : link
and thanks for some of the amazing clutch performances.

Who's in the running for our kicker now?
No Giants fans are ever confident about the kicker.  
Ten Ton Hammer : 7/17/2013 12:35 pm : link
Even when the stats bear out confidence.
arcarsenal : 7/17/2013 12:35 pm : link
We signed Josh Brown a while ago.
Gonna miss him  
jc in c-ville : 7/17/2013 1:01 pm : link
Glad he signed with a team  
ZogZerg : 7/17/2013 1:04 pm : link
good luck to him.
We'll be seeing him in replays forever...  
kinard : 7/17/2013 1:24 pm : link
... and he's eternally part of Giant's lore. Still....

I wish he had more leg in Philly last year and his miss early in the Atlanta game was brutal.

What have you done for me lately Tynes?.... OK, your two game winners in brutal conditions in both NFC Championships get you off the hook.

For those 2 kicks, you'll always be OK with me.

You made some critical kicks for us over the years....more good than bad as they say. Wish you well as best as your interests don't conflict with the Giants.
Thank you for the wins and saving some butts

Love Coughlin talking about the GB overtime kick  
bceagle05 : 7/17/2013 2:24 pm : link
on America's Game. He said 'field goal' and all he heard in the headset was all the assistant coaches going nuts, telling him not to do it.
Good for him.  
Klaatu : 7/17/2013 2:42 pm : link
I wish him well.
Kicked us into 2 superbowls  
BillyBoy8384 : 7/17/2013 4:12 pm : link
good luck I can see him doing well in TB
Will remember him fondly  
Ben in Tampa : 7/17/2013 4:15 pm : link
but holy shit, I didn't even realize he wasn't on the team anymore. Who is our kicker?!?
^ Probably Josh Brown, though David Buehler is lurking too.

TC may have even heard me from a thousand miles away. :)

Awesome kick.
When he first signed with the team  
mikeygiants : 7/17/2013 5:32 pm : link
and then after his first season I did not think that he would last. I think I remember Coughlin ripping into him a few times after some botched kicks. A lot of people wanted him gone, myself included.

It's awesome to see how far he's come with this team, especially with the personal issues he's gone through over the years with his kids. How can you not wish him well?*

*unless we're playing the Bucs.
he always very solid  
Neverend : 7/17/2013 7:01 pm : link
he struggled in the beginning of the 2009 because of an issue with his technique that tom Quinn got him to correct after watching old film of tynes. since he fixed that, he was tremendous for most of 2009

in 2010, he struggled early because of his holder. the great matt dodge. when dodge was replaced as the holder after week 4 against Chicago, tynes went on to make 17 straight field goals, he went 12 consecutive nfl weeks without missing one until the finale against Washington. that's awesome

2011 the giants didn't really kick many FGs but in 2012, they kicked a lot (too much really). he was on pace to becoming the nfls all time leading scorer in a season, which is kind of hilarious, but hell its something. the giants did nothing against Atlanta/bal and went on a TD spree against philly so he wasn't able to get the record, if that's a bad thing anyway. Regardless, will remember the game winners against dallas in 09 and the nfc championship game in 07 the most. always had trust in him
I wish you well Mr Tynes

Will always remember.....  
Doomster : 7/17/2013 9:37 pm : link
He pulled that 43 yarder....then missed the 36 yarder because of a bad Coughlin sends him out for a 47 yarder....I think no one had ever kicked a fg over 40 yards in GB in the playoffs.....and Tynes is going out there again.....he nailed it! Thanks Lawrence......
AcidTest : 7/17/2013 10:30 pm : link
Lawrence. Best wishes and thanks for all your great work for the Giants.

Why no Tynes?  
Tark10 : 7/22/2013 8:06 am : link
I thought the organization didn't resign him because he would be too expensive. Nobody picked him up yet the Giants still went in another direction. Why did they give up on Tynes?
You can find your answer within the thread.
