    Someone had to make the catches, no? We played well enough to win, made enough mistakes to lose it

      Hixon showed that he didn't have the chops to be the #1 (dropped too many big passes back in the day). He's a competent #2 and an awesome #3.

      As RF stated, in no way am I saying that Hixon can replace the production that Nicks gives us ... just that we aren't scraping the bottom of the barrel with Hixon.

        We seem to have to poster with conflicting opinions on the speed of Hixon vs Nicks.hmmmm...
        I bet if you line um up right now Hixon would smoke Nicks in the 40 yd dash since Nicks has a foot, knee,,,,, some type of leg problem anyway. I can say one thing about Nicks vs all the other WRs. He's better at getting off press coverage than the lot of them & that's a definate problem I saw in the Cowboy & Eagles game. No one could consistantly get off on press coverage.
        As far as I know, Hixon (today) is faster than Nicks (both in acceleration and flat out speed). Nicks has stronger hands and "plays bigger" than Hixon (even though Hixon is an inch taller). Nicks also seems to be more route savvy than Hixon (Nicks' best quality).

          NIcks is an exceptional athlete whether he's faster or not. Speed doesn't equate to a great WR, skill, route running and hard work do. That being said, if Hixon can stay on the field and get some playing time no one knows how good he could get. By no means is Hixon a replacement for NIcks, he is a reliable sub until Nicks is healthy. Like it or not, that's how it's going to be..

            If he's on the field, he's always been a great weapon for Eli.
            Lets not forget who our receivers were that year. Smith, Toomer, Manningham, and Moss.

            Smith had his role in the slot. Toomer was pretty much done. Manningham was a rookie, and Moss was Moss.

            Becoming the number one receiver in that group is not a huge deal.

            That being said, Hixon is a real nice player, but our offense takes a huge slide with Hakeem out. What makes our offensive attack so devastating is that teams have to find an answer for Nicks and Cruz. When one of them is out, it suddenly becomes a very average looking offense.

                    Hixon has the skills to be a starter on this team. Injuries haven't helped.. I see a big week for him.

                      I would look for both Cruz and Hixon to have 150+ yards against the Browns

                        The only way we have two receivers with +150, is if we are chasing a big lead for most of the game. Kind of like the Tampa game. I surely hope that is not the case this week against a team like the Browns.

                          Can you please provide some proof to back this statement up?

                            It's not a knock on Nicks. He is just not what you wold call a speedy WR.

                              Are the Browns better than the Panthers, defensively?

                                Can not say I've seen them a lot this year but the played the hard against the Ravens. I mean they keep losing games that are closely contested.
