Hixon was the ultimate complementary receiver for the New York Giants, repeatedly stepping in with productive efforts when other receivers fell to injury. In the past five seasons, [b]he only has four games with a grade worse than -1.0.[/b]

I posted it awhile back...but I would LOVE a 1 yr deal for Richard Seymour to come back home. Draft a WR and S in the first two rounds.

This must be what Gettleman meant by saying he was going to fill the back of the roster

it's the only thing he can do anyway since Hurney left him with nothing to work with

sorry for brief sidetrack:

there is no statistic that tells a story without context. no matter how objectively and/or abstractly you grade a play, it does not happen in a vacuum. PFF writers continually quote their all-encompassing score for players' seasons, games, in relation to what roles they should play, what money they should get in FA, and so on. they are doing their own hard work a disservice by not trying to interpret their findings beyond "5.0 is better than -1.3" type fingerpainting. advanced models in other sports are usually cast in context by writers in much more illuminating ways than PFF does. i would love for them to realize this, because they have a lot of people's attention right now with the grading they do.
