[quote user="Morehead State"]Lets go easy on Hixon. He could still be a great return man for us. And we certainly need that.[/quote]</P>
that was a pipe dream in 08....im tired of waiting for him to be healthy, let alone play a down of football in the regular season.
Like i said, unless he's making 400k this year, there's really no need to keep him around anymore.</P>
Tore up his knee making a great play for our team. Don't you think you're being a tad harsh?</P>
[/quote]I know what you mean mh and there is a degree of loyalty that should be paid to an injured player who came up big for the team. Problem is it's all about $ and cents and in the end, that's what decisions are based on. I'm not saying it's right, just sayin.[/quote]
theres no loyalty in this game/biz
if there is, its usually with the player to team not team to player
so do you think im being harsh, or realistic?? lol</P>
I have no problem assessing his future impact on the team and wanting our FO to make the tough choices about Hixon. But your "I'm sick of waiting for him...." seemed a tad unappreciative.</P>
I admit I could be wrong on this.</P>
i get what youre saying....i understand. But me saying im tired of waiting, its just me being realistic.
Imagine all the 1st round draft busts you see in sports, we've had them too....and we didnt even draft hixon, we just thought we found a diamond in the rough, and he performed for a bit, but...there are alot of decent players who cant stay healthy, and he could be one of them. it's too bad.
If we do end up losing Manningham, Idothinkthere's a possibiliy we could keep Hixon if he's healthy enough to play. Shoot...I hope he is! But yea, it's a tough decision to make....just uhh...not that difficult. This is NY, and sadly, "what have you done for me lately?" is a trend in big cities</P>
Its not "what have you done lately". Its "what can you do for us next year" that matters. I would say Hixon could continue to be an effective return guy, especially if the league puts the KO's back to the 30 like I think they will. And Matt's right, he would come cheap.</P>
