I havent heard his name mentioned once; Bardens looking pretty good, and JJ has been the one returning punts.
I just havent seen anything in regards to preseason to justify a spot for the guy

I don't think they played him much. Similar to Ware. Know what they have in him already.

I'd be surprised if he gets cut, though I've seen stranger things

Giants have a lot of wr talent and Hixon may not be the starter anyways.

Coming from the hype in camp i expected Hixon to show, he has been uneventful, though they may be saving him, coming from two injuries you think he would try to prove himself at this point

i dunno but hixon didnt have a good preseason. nicks ended up with more receiving yards than him with a whopping 6 yards to hixons 4...

So weird. Not sure who will get dropped out. I feel like Hixon, jernigan, and barden can all be on the roster

Even though Nicks is back, he could still use some insurance. It's not like any of the other receivers vying for a position have separated themselves immensely this preseason. Giants have always been accommodating with Hixon dating back to last season.

if Nicks or Cruz go down they need a WR who knows the playbook inside and out and Hixon I believ fits that bill.

He's not going anywhere. I remember Coughlin saying prior to one of the games that Hixon won't play because he already knew what he'd get from him. That doesn't sound like a coach that's considering letting him go.

Tyree was never all that good of a good receiver (Hixon is a better receiver) and started declining as a STer after his injury. I think we only have to look at his post-Giants career to see if we made the right choice there.

Im not being malicious with you... im just stating the absurdity of keeping a player just becuz they know the playbook. I just havent anything from Hixon to justify letting JJ or Barden go simply becuz in JJs case Hixon knows the playbook better.

Fact is we wont be able to keep more then 6 WR's at the most.. at one time i considered we could go 7. But that means cutting Ojomo loose...and sorry ... Hixon aint worth Ojomo in my opinion.

Gone? Do you really think they would line him up with the ones as the third wideout if they were gonna cut him - my guess is catches or no catches he is our 3rd wide out. Barden came on strong - I'd rather see him as he is a beast running the slant with that giant frame, but coughlin loves experience - still barden is no rook anymore.

Seemed he had a great camp. The injury was the only question
as to how he would perform, giants knew what they had otherwise.
Never been a huge fan of his, hope he can at least come close to manny's production.

I think all the WR's are going to be a little more open this year since we seem to have
the best threat @ TE since shockey. Hope the dink and dunk carries over from preseason,
because we are going to need it with our O-line.

Hixon shows 'no fear' with big camp catch

http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/giants/2012/08/hixon-shows-no-fear-with-big-camp-catch

"Domenik Hixon continued to move well and catch everything thrown to him. Nothing spectacular from him today, just continued good, steady work."

"and Hixon looking sharp on his in cuts and exhibiting good speed off the line. He didn't seem tentative at all."

BTW....if it was me....I would cut JJ. Don't like short WRs. He is listed as 5' 8" and you have to be outstanding at that height to be and NFL WR. He is not outstanding.

See and i really dont like the idea of cutting Douglas. Way more upside (IMO) then Hixon. Plus absolutely zero chance DD clears waivers.

JJ has been returning punts to give him an opportunity to show something...anything....and he's yet to do so. Hixon not only provides versatility, as he's a proven special teams player at the NFL level, but Eli has trust in him as a receiver if he's ever called upon. I just don't see any possible value in continuing to keep Jerigan.

I dont want to see anybody gone. And its nothing personal at all against Hixon. IMO I have seen more potential with better upside this year at the WR position.

Hixon was fine for us when we had SS and Nicks was a rookie and Cruz was PS fodder. But we have severly upgraded the WR position since that first year we brought in Hixon. Im just not seeing the skill set of Hixon being equivalent to talents of other WR's.

no...told you not to eat crow even if had a good game because he still has a lot to prove and one good game at WR wouldnt prove that.
I said to chill on JJ becasue you said he sucked. He doesnt suck but at the same time I dont particularly like short WRs.

he's not outstanding...yet. few wr's are entering year 2.

i dont get some people (not u gametime i've seen u say he needs to be given more of a chance), it seems people want instant gratification and if it isnt granted, the player needs to be cut. and its random too, that theory isn't applied across the board, but only specific players. Probably bc those people set lofty, way too high of an expectation and the player didnt meet it, when in reality like 1% of players could.
Prince, JJ, Barden etc (which I understood as more time elapsed but still, he was injured 2 of his years here)...Like really, Prince and JJ?? They are entering their SECOND YEAR. i know they havent done much, or anything in JJ's case...but if every player entering his 2nd year without doing anything were cut, the league would have like 100 players total...give him, and yourself, more of a chance to have a better understanding of the situation and a players potential...

Did you count how many plays he was in for? I do not believe he was in very long in either game. Either way, he is a known commodity, a reliable receiver, a PROVEN returner and he will be on the roster, Mr. Cut Hixon. And thank the lord that the Giants FO has more sense than many of the posters on this MB.

you are right and as fans we have the luxury of ignorance and not worryigng about cap space and future issues for the team. We can willy nilly say cut him, keep him, etc. But many of us look at it logically most times. Taking into account when players were drafted, injuries, opportunites, and practice (which we are not privy to) the coaches can and will make the best decision for the team. Most times those decisions work out for the Gmen and sometimes they dont. For example....Sinorice Moss....was he a victim of the system or was did he just not cut it???
It becomes what the player does for the team, what the play can do for the team , and what the player may do for the team. The coaches will most likely make the right choices.

giantsfan420

Forget that JJ is a 3rd round pick, look at him as a player and what he has done, he has caught ZERO passes in real games, had muffed punts in preseason, never broke one long on any punt or kick-offs, goes down like a fragile girl on first contact. He looks good in practice, but never shows up in games. I think he has Sinorice Moss syndrom written all over, actually even less hopeful becausee Moss was faster runner. But the biggest negative on JJ is that Eli doesn't like short WRs and it shows.

Without looking at the draft selection credentials, I would take Douglas over JJ EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Thank god you aren't making this decision.......Douglass has NOT done any more than JJ...except in the minds of some fans

Not corny at all, it's debilitating. For most of us it probably centers around one or two specific players. In my case, Ojomo, Ware, and Hixon

Guys can we be a bit more realistic - we have watched camp and preseason - followed beat reporters and practice highlights so we tend to build up our players a great deal. The truth is Douglas could easily clear waivers and make it to the ps. He has done a nice job in camp - had about 2/3 catches in preseason and one nice return negated by a penalty. There is not DEFINITE that he would be claimed and I think the giants take that chance due to the numbers and let him go. Hixon is a guy the giants wanted to work back in slowly. He knows the offense and in game 3 and 4 lines up with the ones.

Giants | David Douglas has chance to make team

Wed, 29 Aug 2012 09:15:57 -0700

New York Giants WR David Douglas has a chance to make the final roster because of his ability to be a returner on special teams.

Nobody - including myself - said he didn't. But he also has a chance of being cut and clearing waivers ending up on the PS.

I think Jernigan has been getting the return duties this pre season so the coaches can see if he shows anything special, I think they are pretty confident that Hixon is gonna be the guy. Barden has shown some great stuff so far and with his size and hands he is gonna be a very tough guy to let go. IMO if one of those three guys get cut I think it would have to be Jernigan.... but then again that just my opinion and I am not watching them on the practice field.
