NEW YORK (AP) - David Letterman told Lawrence Tynes that everybody the ``Late Show'' host knows was thinking the same thing after the Giants kicker missed two go-ahead field goal attempts in the fourth quarter of Sunday's NFC Championship game.
``Please don't send him in again, for the love of God, if there's an ounce of mercy in your soul, don't send him in!''
Said Tynes, ``I would agree with that.''
The kicker went from wondering how he would ever make it onto the team's charter plane back to New York to being welcomed to Letterman's couch. Tynes, who made the winning field goal in overtime to send the Giants to the Super Bowl, appeared on the CBS show Wednesday.
Tynes joked that the misses had him pondering, ``What's it going to be like to live in Green Bay?''
``The first one looked like I kicked it, for God's sakes - no offense,'' Letterman said.
Tynes replied, ``No, no, I would say the second one probably looked like you would have kicked it.''
Letterman played the clip of Giants coach Tom Coughlin yelling at Tynes after his first miss and asked what was said.
``I never hear what he's saying,'' Tynes answered, drawing laughs from the audience.
``But, you know, he's a great guy to play for,'' he added. ``He wants nothing but the best for you. And I know he's yelling at me, I just never hear him.''
Letterman ended the interview by inquiring whether Tynes was currently wearing special kicking shoes.
As a camera showed a close-up of a brown pair that looked nothing like cleats, Tynes said, ``No, these are not. These are some sort of dress shoes my wife picked out.''
