  • Domenik Hixon

    #87 has been playing outstanding. Some on the boards thought he should be cut this year. Two acl surgeries and he is showing no ill effects from them. Makes a ton of clutch catches and makes losing Manningham a non issue. I am grateful the organization was smart enough to keep him around. When players under perform board members are quick to start a bash thread so I just wanted to post up a positive thread because he has been a great contributor on offense.

    Very impressed by Hixon. I was expecting close to nothing from him, but he has been a warrior this year. I even picked him up on my fantasy team, which is one of the highest honors a player in the NFL can earn, behind NFL MVP, and maybe First-Team AP.

      I still cant understand why he has to turn back to the ball to catch it though. He is completely unable to look in a ball over his shoulder.

        all of are receivers have been playing great, when someone went down someone else always stepped up. now it's time for Jernigan!

          I'm loving Hixon. Some of the catches he has made have been unbelievable.

            If he gets in it means multiple players have been injured.
            He can stay on the sideline.

              If Cruz is Eli's security blanket, Hixon is his safety snuggie...

              ...or something

              ALL-IN!

                I noticed that Nicks didn't look great out there although he made some nice catches. We definitely need him at full strength.

                  It looks much cooler, doing a 180 and falling on your back, while maintaining possession.

                    I could be wrong, but if he had kept running on that one yesterday the throw would have been short

                      Oh probably, he just does it on every play he gets a ball deep. Its just a weird thing to see.

                        I was impressed that he had the presence of mind to keep his left hand under the ball. He does make some pretty acrobatic catches though

                          Even as a decoy, Nicks is worth his weight in gold

                            Maybe locating the ball ahead of time is his safety snuggle.

                              Probably worried about dropping the ball, got a couple of strong receivers breathing down his neck!
