    Props to Hixon

    I remember how many posters said he was no good a while back. He can catch any ball close to him. He caught balls high, low, and off to the side. Any crow eaters out there?

    we really do have a good bunch of wide receivers.
    a darn good QB too.
    the pen is said to be mightier than the sword.....
    but when is the last time your sword ran out of ink ?

    I like hix and always have. The only concern I had were his 2 acl tears to the same knee in back to back seasons. Seeing him come down with that high pass from Eli says it all.

    Him And RR filled in great today taking the pressure off cruZ. You'd think Cruz wouldn't have even been able to sniff the ball with barden and nicks out I expected him to be blanketed all day yet he scored 3 tds
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    I was not high on Hixon. Glad to eat some crow on that one.
    I do think his big play ability is well behind MH, but thats about it.

    Assuming nicks is back (not just in the game mind you).
    Keep bennet and bradshaw in for max protect,
    put hixon in the slot and cruz/nicks on the outside. I think
    that could be a bunch of trouble for even the niners D.

    I would assume most of the time Nicks and Hixon would be on the outside because they are faster and Cruz in the slot with his amazing catch and run abilities. No doubt all three on the field at the same time would be crazy!

    Imagine what they could do in the 4 WR set with Bennett at TE. Eli could have Bennett, Nicks, Cruz, Hixon, Barden/Randle out in the routes. Nightmare for a defense. Few teams if any can line up a fearsome fivesome like that, lol! You could go empty backfield or line up Bennett in the backfield pre-snap.
