Thread: Props to Hixon

  1. #21
    Hixon is another example of our brain trust being able to evaluate talent and being willing to stick with guys who they know can perform when health and opportunity come together. How many clubs would have stuck with DH through the injuries? Maybe they all would have, but I like to think that the Giants are special - top to bottom.

    Is hixon faster than cruz? Don't think it is a huge amount, but I haven't really seen enough
    of hixon recently to say. Hixon is starting to remind me of smith in his route running,
    hence why I thought of him for the slot.

    Yup would be nice to see that many playmakers on the field!

    Not sure our O-line is up to that yet.
    Maybe they will gell.

    If I remember correctly, Hixon was almost known as the deep threat with the speed. Someone correct me if I'm wrong though.

    That's why you keep Wilson/Bradshaw, or if they go no RB's, Bennett in the backfield pre-snap to help chip the rush to give Eli just enough time to make a play. Bennett in the backfield and 4 wides would be probably out of the shotgun while Bradshaw/Wilson could even be run with Eli behind center.

    All I know is Hixon does not surprise me at all. I love our WR core and if Nicks can actually stay on the field....Nicks, Hixon, and Cruz.....man sounds good on paper and so far Hixon and Cruz look great on the field.

    Even then. Probably going to have to keep Bennett and bradshaw in against the niners,
    unless we want Eli running for his life the whole game again.

    I could see it on a lesser D though.
