    Next yr, Randle will have his spot, i almost gurantee it.. Randles played in far last snaps, and just been on the field a ton less, and yet hes tied with Hixon for catches in a game this yr with 6, as hixon's only done it once as well as randle..

    Shoot, Randles got as many 60yrd games as Hixon has this yr, which is 2...lol I promise u, that if mario was here, he'd have at least 4-5 games of 60plus yrds recieving..

      Just look at the playoff performances.
      Hixon was in 5 playoff games with 2 catches and 37 yards and 0 TD's
      Manningham was in 4 playoff games and had 13 catches, 189 yards and 3 TD's. And the SF TD was the game winner.

      I just don't get the case being made that Hixon is a better WR than MM. there is no piece of information, objective or otherwise, that supports that view.
      Don't forget one of the ugliest playoff drops that i can remember by Hixon in that philly game where he was a starter and we scored a lousy 11points, and his crucial drop was the turning point of the game...

      Its really not debatable..

        Oh come on RF. Hixon is in a pass first offense and MM is in a run first offense. The advantage here is that we have an objective comparison. They were on the same team with the same QB throwing the ball for almost all of their careers.
        The productivity is so lopsided that its literally laughable that a case is being made for Hixon.

        Hixon is a ROLE PLAYER. MM is an offensive WEAPON!!!
        All the facts support my position. ALL OF THEM.
        Regular season, playoffs, big plays.....it all supports MM by a mile.

            You and i both know that that the whole earn playing time thing goes out the window with this coaching staff. if hixon didnt get injured last year he would have started over cruz in spite of how well cruz played in camp and in the preseason. And i dont think anyone here would argue who is better between cruz and hixon.

            You could argue locklear should be starting over DD or that stevie brown should be starting over rolle or that andre brown should be in over bradshaw. Last year Osi started over Jpp for the majority of the season even though they did split time. And if you look back to preseason i dont know how the hell david carr made the team. Ryan played better than him in the preseason and they didnt even give him a chance. They wont even give wilson playing time.

            We have a good coaching staff but the words "earning playing time" and "Giants" should never be in the same sentence. As far as the 08 season goes it was a much different situation. a lot more pressure was on hixon. But i hate making excuses so ill give you that. He didnt step up. But manningham didnt either that year. Right now hixon is better

            Don't take it personal, we're just debating.

                well for one, Mario was injured just about the entire 08 season, and was about as raw as u can get, coming from mind numbingly basic offense at Michigan... If he was healthy for the whole season, i'd be willing to bet he'd make a few more plays to get ELI's and Coughlins attention and hence get more looks..

                  MM got the snaps because he was the superior player. We forget that when Plax went down in 2008, Hixon got his chance. He disappeared after the Washington game, and into the playoffs.

                  [/QUOTE]

                  Yes but MM produced. Hixon didn't. When Hixon had his chance in 2008 he DIDN'T produce.
                  And in regards to the coaching staff, Hixon was the vet and MM was the youngster. The pattern for these coaches was to favor Hixon. They didn't.
                  You guys are grasping at straws here with some of your arguments. Just step back, put away any preconceived notions and look at the productivity. Both on the same team with the same QB.
                  Its not even close. I just don't get the argument here for Hixon vs. Manningham.

                      lets talk about last year. Manningham had 3 TD's in 4 post season games. Thats one less TD that Hixon has had in his entire NFL career.

                      Stop making my case for me...its poor salesmanship.

                          How'd that work out for him?

                          And if Hixon was healthy do you honestly think he'd say.."we better double Hixon and make em throw to Nicks and Cruz"?

                            Last yr, Mario was brilliant as a 3rd WR.. U couldeen't ask the guy for more, hence why he earned a payday that Dom Hixon could only dream about.. I mean, Mario didn't just have a gazillion more big moments in the reg season, he had the biggest catch in the NFC champ game and the SB...

                            dude, Rueben Randle has as many 60yrd recieving games and 6catch games as hixon this yr!!lol Randles played so fewer snaps, its not even worth mentioning... Randle will take Hixons job next yr, no doubt about it.. If Mario were here, he'd have at least 4-5 60yrd games, and theres a reason that ELI's stats are taking such a big hit this season, without the trifecta of Nicks, Cruz, and Mario.. When u lose a nicks, and can plug in a mario, ur losing far less, then when u plug in a hixon...

                                Hixon: 89 catches 1218 yards 4 TD's

                                MM: 191 catches 2658 yards 19 TD's.

                                Case Closed.
                                but MM had 281 targets.
                                DH only had 118 targets.

                                that's right MM was targeted 2 and a half times more.
                                so multiply DH's stats by 2.5 , and he wins hands down.
                                and he also returns kicks.
