    So, is Randle in the dog house now?

    I've noticed the Giants are getting Jernigan more involved on offense now along with Hixon and Barden... (Barden not so much though) And since Randle muffed two punts last week it seems he lost his job on returns as well as playing time on offense.

    Thoughts?

    They have been working with Hixon on returns since his ankle injury. This is clearly not a case of pushing Randle off the ledge, he's the future. But we don't see what goes on in practices and Hixon has always been a very dependable returner. Remember, it was Hixon's record Wilson just broke. Randle muffed two punts that didn't cost us anything. If I'm TC, I could easily see myself wanting to hedge my bets for what he sees as the most important three game series of the season.

    According to TC, Hixon is getting about two more yards per return than Randle and he is sure handed.

    Mario Manningham didn't make much of an impression in his first season, but things worked out pretty well there. Patience grasshopper.

    Hey, u gotta produce.. Theres rookies on every team playing major minutes, and if ur gonna play as a rookie, u gotta earn it and show u belong.. Randle has had his ups and downs this yr, and even getting called out by Victor Cruz at one point, and hopefully he'll learn, u shoulden't need players on ur team to motivate u wk in and wk out.. It don't take much for a young guy to find himself in the doghouse on this team, when playing a offensive skilled positon..

    Look at David Wilson, he went behind a journey man, injury prone, former 4th rder for wks and wks, before Brown got hurt, which opened up another oppurtunity for Wilson 2 show himself.. When ur a skilled positon player on the GIANTS< u better come to play wk in and wk out and not F up to often, because u will find urself on the bench...

    Injuries to Nicks and Hixon made that almost impossible for a while.

    I think this shows we are officially in " Must Win" territory. With Hixon back he will get the snaps. A lot fewer mistakes from him over the rookie. Those muffs were huge mistakes. He also got way to close to a punt on the ground in that game. The cover team tried to push him into it looking for a turn over. Those mindless mistakes could kill us some time. Add the poor routes and that spells at least sleeping on the couch, if not the dog house.

    I still like Randle and think he could be a big time receiver in the future, but he's not really that good at returning punts, he doesn't have that speed and explosiveness that I see from guys like Jernigan and Wilson.
    Hixon returned two punts on Sunday, not Jernigan. Jernigan did have one kick return for 60 yards.
