[Note by ETVal, 10/16/08 12:21 PM EDT: apparently, Lawrence Tynes spoke too soon. Tom Coughlin says he has not yet decided who will kick Sunday.]
So, the John Carney-Lawrence Tynes debate we have been having for weeks now appears to be moot.
Tynes says he is kicking Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. Since Carney has gone 12-for-12 in field goals, I'm sure Tynes understands that the bar has been set pretty high in terms of placekicking performance.
"I'm just going to continue to do what he's done for us. He's helped us out tremendously," Tynes said. "I've learned a lot in five weeks with him that's going to help me with preparation, staying healthy and staying in this league. I'm looking forward to doing just as well as he has."
Let's hope he can.
