    [quote user="DavenIII"][quote user="MattMeyerBud"]we're defending champions, we're not looking for upset, we're looking for production


    Your fooling yourself by thinking Barden is anything more than just a message board name. Hixon has a connection with Eli which would be perfect with Cruz and Nicks ahead of him...[/quote]

    I'm not so much Pro Barden as I am Anti Hixon.

    Hixon would result in the lowest production out of any receiver on our roster as a the 3rd receiver right now in my opinion, Barden Jernigan whoever we pick up...any of them will do better.

    Hixon is (and always was) a KR/PR Special Teams guy...Eli made him look like a decent WR one year...big deal...he can do that with anyone on our roster.
    [/quote]</p>


    I'm anti-Hixon as a receiver also. I remember a few years ago, I was debating with MH about this.(big ****ing surprise). He said Hixon was going to be our best receiver, and then we drafted Nicks after a terribly mediocre season from Hixon anyway, and it was "hixon who?", I said he was an ok as a filler, but clearly not the answer as the guy displayed some butterfingers. I thought he redeemed himself in the Rams game this year with the juggling catch. but uhh...he tore his ACL for the 2nd season in a row on that play, so yea, honestly...i dont want him near the ball on offense. At least as a returner, he has teh ability to show his ability, but we can use Thomas, Jerrnigan, and others on returns if need be.</p>[/quote]

    nobody disagrees with the fact that if Hakeem Nicks, Mario Manningham, and Steve Smith are on the team that Hixon wouldn't be the #3


    [/quote]Also the Giants would constantly change up the 2 wrs in I formations, using all four, manningham, smith nicks hixon in 09 and 10

    Hixon wasnot on the field much on offense in 09. he only caught like 15 passes
    And he didnt play in 2010, so where you getting this?</P>

    [quote user="dezzzR"]You two are being silly. 08 Hixon 49 and 500 yards playing behind plax and tooms. What kind of numbers are you looking for in a number 3?
    The man can run decent routes, catch, break tackles. If neither JJ or Barden are ready, Hixon is a good option.
    [/quote]</p>


    Well....Toomer had a nearly IDENTICAL season to Hixon.
    It's not like Hixon made the season or anything...in fact, he dropped that were sure things, and made us all cringe, but i digress, how quickly we forget.
    Our running game and Eli Manning were the only thing that made Hixon look like a serviceable receiver.

    My point: I dont want us to get to the point where Hixon is an option. Last resort maybe, sure...lol....but not an option</p>[/quote]

    and theres the most over blown knock on hixon.. he had one bad drop vs the Eagles that year - that was it. Much like Nicks had against the Redskins this year.

    So does that mean Nicks drops SURE THINGS?

    How quickly u did forget all the sure handed grabs he had.

    Hes not a last resort at all, hes going into camp if healthy as #3 right now.
    Fear the name, appreciate the game

    he was def our 4th WR that year. And Hixon's speed if anything had him used as a decoy alot

    something Daven didn't take into consideration during his "SNAPS" argument

    You can say that about any wr, literally. And you dont have to worry but he most likely will be a last resort.

    Re: THEE NYG SWAG THREAD

    Listen, I know we signed him, and i was all for it assuming the price was right....
    I'm just saying...he's not going to be an impact player offensively, but i do hope he improves STs, which is an area we always struggle.
    And listen...I hope I'm wrong, cuz that'd be awesome.

    NYG will not have a problem with the passing game. We should sure up the run game to give us balance. Ab's got good hands, BJ is a surprising catcher. I hate the crap that Tiki pulled, but imagine a back like Tiki, that could move the chains and serve as a dependable receiver....omg , I'm getting a stiffy.
