View Full Version : King Carl not pleased with Tynes

Did anyone else get the feeling from what Carl Peterson said in the booth that Tynes is all but history?

The announcers were going over Tynes' misses, his bad kickoffs, and the incident in River Falls and from what I heard with Carl's reply, it sounds like Tynes is gone.

Something like this

"Yeah, we've been looking for about two weeks now. I thought he was going to be the guy for us, but he's just doing too many things wrong, and not getting it done."

It sounds like Carl's mind was all but made up judging by that response.

Problem is, who can the Chiefs pursue at the K position that would be any better? I dont know of any available kickers that are worth a damn.


I thought Tynes was just in a slump and would shake it off. But man, when youre missing field goals under 40 yards, thats pretty damn bad. Anything under 40 yards should be money for an NFL kicker.

Good, he needs to go. If the kick isn't dead on - he has problems. I was surprised at the kick he did make tonight, cause it was from the right hash mark, rather than the 2 he missed.

They'll wait till the first, maybe the second set of cut downs, and pick a vet up.

My only hope is that Tynes doesn't get on a 2 Preseason game hot streak.

Great option. Martin's worse than Tynes these days...

Both of which would last for one field goal and then would hurt themselves celebrating.....I guess, well at least they would make the field goal I can't say the same for tynes.

Well here's something the would probably be the only thing to do is to have 2 kickers and a punter.

Bring Morten Andersen back, and let tynes kick off or let richey, or one of the gramaticas kick off.

Why? You'd rather pick up some can't hack it retread instead of hoping Tynes figures things out and gets hot going into the season?

Tynes looked like shit warming up for the second half. If he were missing one way, that's one thing but he's left, he's right - no pattern at all.

He blows.

Actually I read that Martin Gramatica had a bad year due to an injury he had. He didn't inform people of it and kicked with it anyway making him perform poorly. He has since had surgery to repair it, so maybe he's worth a shot now.

I just know he's the guy we're gonna think about bringing in. Actually if I'm not mistaken, he was pretty cruddy the year before last too... Gruden just pulled the plug last year.

Yeah, last two years he's 27-45 in FG's. He also averaged about 61 yards a kickoff and had 7 touchbacks last year (4 of those coming in one game).... which is almost exactly what Tynes did last year. I'm just not seeing it...

I remember the Gramatica 65 yarder against A&M. That was sweet. it didnt just barely clear the xbar either.

I can almost guarantee that Jan would have a better average than Tynes right now........

I say we sign Garo Yepremian. Not only could he outkick Tynes, he also could serve as the No. 3 QB, since he throws as well as Huard.

That is truly a leg.

Were his kickoffs that long, cuz it would be kinda cool to watch someone kick it into the endzone from 6 fields away.

Damon Huard will be out of a job soon. Maybe he can kick, because he certainly can't throw.

Feely is actually with the NY Giants. I wouldn't mind going with a vet like Steve Christie.

from Yahoo! (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/recap?gid=20050820012)

``He's in the tank,'' Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil said of Tynes. ``You miss two field goals like that -- not in the National Football League. He has thrown the red flag up the entire training camp in regard to being an accurate kicker on our practice field. So we have a real concern.''

That should really inspire some confidence in ol' Larry Tynes.

This should be easy for the Chiefs. You pick up a vet (Christy?) that can kick all day every day from 40 yards in and you keep Tynes for the kickoffs/longer ones unless Colquit can kick off well enough. How many seasons have gone in the tank because of either a missed field goal or crappy kickoffs? If you need to carry two kickers to get that handled then damnit, you do it.
