  • Hixon as 3d receiver

    Congratulations to Hixon on his catch last night and his recovery again from serious injury. But my sense is that he is NOT as blessed with talent as Manningham is, and that Ruben Randle certainly deserves to be in the mix and on the field NOW!

    It may only be the start of the season, but don't kid yourself, a loss like last night could be damming come December. We need to utilize our assets immediately -- we're not good enough to coast in any way.

    I love your work and for the record do not believe any of the lies about you and David Bowe

    ...anyway

    Hixon absolutely the best option for 3rd on the depth chart at the moment

    Randle will eventually be ready .....but is clearly not at the moment

    if Hixon can stay healthy he will be a huge part of this offense and I believe if he was healthy last season we may not have seen Manninham at all

      Does anyone remember last season? Hixon started above Cruz before his injury vs. the Rams. He's no scrub... if he stayed healthy the newspapers would have been buzzing with "Nixon Hixon" (read: Nicks and Hixon) as the top wideout tandem in the NFL.

      I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

        Can you explain this to me please?

        P.S. - Hixon is miles ahead of RR or Manningham right now.
        I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

          I was thinking same thing. He isn't able to get separation most of the time. I would play Barden until Randle is ready to take over the job. The key for the third WR is to able to contribute outside so Cruz can move to the slot where he is much more dangerous.

            If you think Hixon > Manningham, you're out of your damn mind.

              Hixon did more than what was asked of him last night. The guy had a really good game.
              Reese, gone. Check! Bench McAdoo Doo, gone. Check! Let's Giants 2018.

                He was above Cruz last year, as well as Manningham...

                  Hixon had an okay game, that one catch was big and good, with Nicks less than 100% and Cruz not there,

                  you can only prove you know so much in practice, eventually you need to gain opportunities in real game action to prove you can translate it,

                  someone at the game said Randle was in on a play and 2-3 steps ahead of his defender on a go route and Eli never looked at him once

                  not saying X is better than X at this point, just observations

                    If Randle isn't better than Hixon, he was a bad 2nd round choice. Yes, Hixon (like Tyree) can make plays -- but that doesn't make him a great receiver.

                    While Manningham was mentally inconsistent while here, he many, many times came up with stellar, clutch catches for TDs -- go watch the NFL Giants year-end video for 2011. It will scare you -- he MUST be replaced or we go NOWHERE! Without him last year, we most likely miss the playoffs.

                      I must be outa my mind. MM wasnt anything special. He was at best a #2, more likely a #3 WR to complement 2 better WRs. Watch him in SF and you will see what I mean.
                      Life is like a Giants game, you never know what you are going to get.

                        who had the most clutch catch of the game on Wed?


                        can't wait to hear your answer

                        if Hixon was healthy last year Manningham may have never seen the field

                        Hixon is not only a better receiver, route runner and a lot smarter of a football player than Mario....but he is a much better athlete

                          hixon had the biggest catch..I disagree about hixon being a better reciever...hixon is def a better route runner and smarter than mario, but running after the catch, and big play ability, I've never seen anything out of hixon that makes him a better reciever than mario imo

                              If Manningham couldn't even beat out Crabtree in SF, is he really that good?
