Warning: Kicker info.

-- If the Giants' Lawrence Tynes doesn't start kicking better, he might soon find himself out of a job. General manager Jerry Reese brought two kickers in for tryouts this week after Tynes missed a sub-40-yard field goal attempt for the third straight game Sunday against Tampa Bay.

"He's [still] our kicker," coach Tom Coughlin said. "But we do have an issue we have to get corrected, let's face it. Those [missed] three points are going to be critical going forward."

Tynes went 5/5 on XPs today and 3/3 on Field Goals (25, 33, and 37). Not sure if that cements his job or not, but you can't do better than that given the opportunities you get.

Bringing in Stover and Bryant was nothing more than an attempt to scare Tynes. Hopefully today's performance cements his hold on the starting PK job. After all, he's the #1 PK in my big fantasy league (we do not penalize for missed FG's).

IDK - it's hard for me to believe that you can motivate a kicker to play better by giving him competition in the middle of the year. Kickers are so streaky.
