    Reasons to celebrate David Wilson and Domenik Hixon

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/10/1...xon/in/3200177

    Excerpt: "
    The New York Giants suffered a heartbreaking 19-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. There were plays that were too ugly to watch, but there were other moments that can help make all Giants fans feel positive about the upcoming weeks.

    The first positive to take from the Week 4 game was David Wilson. Everyone has been waiting for the 2012 first-round draft pick to come out of his shell and give us something to see. Tom Coughlin and Kevin Gilbride spoke endlessly during the preseason about the explosiveness and athleticism Wilson had. Wilson's first few weeks of his rookie year did not go as planned, and everyone has been waiting to see when this kid was going to produce." Read more...

    This return game was definitely a test to see if he could go without fumbling... and he passed with flying colors.

    Hixon I knew would step up. He was once our best receiver, and even after 2 ACLs he's still a major threat.

    Hixon is the kind of player you want waiting in the wings. We all want Nicks back on the field, but Hixon answers the call each and every time and makes plays.

    I do wish Wilson hadn't dropped that one pass, but he's learning. He sure is our kick returner though and it's about damn time.

    Hixon doesn't have the burst that he used to have because of his injuries.He is still a serviceable 3rd WR

    I believe in 2008 he had the most receiving yards

    He'll take Nicks' place until he returns.

    ONLY because Plax shot himself....I would not have looked at that roster in preseason and pronounced Hixon our best receiver

    i'm glad u thought so, because Hixon prooved me wrong.. Most times hes on the field other then like his first yr with us, we've done squat offensiley.. I'm thinking of that game in Dallas where he dropped some key passes and the playoff game against philly where he also had killer drop in the postseason on a deep bomb.. I'm proud of what he did last night because i haden't seen much of hixon to like since like his first 9-10games or so with us...

    Ya losing plax caught up to us, and we scord a pathetic 11points in home playoff loss to Philly with Hixon as our number 1 and he made the biggest drop i've seen in some time... I have been doubting hixon, but now i'm not.. He was sensational last night.. Finally looked like the guy i remember back when he first joined us...
