TSN: Lawrence Tynes has spent most of the season after kicking the
game-winning field goal in the NFC title game as a spectator for
the Super Bowl champion New York Giants. Tynes hurt his knee in
training camp, and lost his job because 44-year-old John Carney
joined the Giants and basically didn't miss. Carney, who was named
a second-team All Pro on Friday, hit 35 of 38 field goals attempts
and all 38 of his extra points in helping the Giants (12-4) win
the NFC East and earn the conference's top seed. It was impossible
for coach Tom Coughlin to give Tynes' his job back, although it
was also impossible for the team to cut the 30-year-old kicker.
With wind gusts expected to be in the 15-to-25 mph range in the
NFC semifinal against the Eagles on Sunday, there is a chance that
Coughlin might dress Tynes to handle the kickoffs. "I won't know
until 10:30 (a.m.) on Sunday," Tynes said Friday after handling
the kickoffs in the early part of practice. Coughlin refused to
indicate what he would do.
