  • Hixon might surprise us

    When Hixon isn't hurt he is always playing well for us. As a number three WR or a special teamer, Hixon has done a great job. I understand he is coming off two acl tears but he looked fine before going down last year.

    Well he's definitely a reliable return man. I felt bad for the dude, tearing his ACL again last season after that amazing catch that helped us beat the Rams.

      I think your being very optimistic. How many top return men in the NFL have missed 2 consecutive years with reconstructive knee surgery?

        Valid point. Thankfully for Hixon it was early in the year.

          Good point. I should have mentioned when I said reliable I was mainly referring to him handling the rock. Everyone we used last year made me nervous because they all had some sort of mishap(s) during the season.

            The one where he tried to catch the ball with his shoulder? I agree he was a good returner but I don't get why some people think he was a great receiver.

              I think they should use him exclusively for the return game.

                The nice thing about Hixon is if he can come back healthy, he serves as a veteran receiver/returner the team can count on as other younger players get through the learning curve. I think Hixon may well be a positive contributor this season.

                    TC's #1 law on return men is Ball Security. You never had to worry whenever Hixon caught the ball. If Hixon makes the squad, I expect many " Happy Returns ".

                      I gotta be honest...Hixon just making the team this year would surprise me.

                        Hes no All Pro, but he is excellent depth at WR. And, I also thought the catch against the Rams was excellent... super concentration after the initial miss.
                        He is our best return man and I wish him only the best in getting a full season out of his legs.

                          I think UMASS might give us another gift in the WR dept... I think Talley is gonna be a guy to watch out for.. Hes quick, and slippery after the catch, runs solid routes all over the field, did well against the tougher competition they played, and gets YAC, and has solid speed, and displays great concentration on tough catches.. Hes kinda like Cruz, as far as the type of player Cruz was when he was here at UMASS...

                            looks like he could be a player in our type of system. he sits in the holes of zone defense, good at making quick cuts and getting open, catches over the middle, makes difficult catches in traffic...hopefully can can make a name for himself

                              [/quote]Great, maybe not but he is a really good receiver. The casual fan obsesses over the one big drop but he also made many clutch grabs for us. The catch he made for a TD last year where he tore the acl was a great grab. When Plax went down, he was our #1 for a while. That was a stretch for him but if healthy he is a decent 2 and an excellent #3. Let's hope he is health.
                              No one remembers who came in second.
