See but that's the thing that has always pissed me off about our approach. What happened to earning a spot for every position? There's only a handful of guys a year who should have their spot guaranteed. For some reason, we've done the opposite. Almost every spot is designated before the season starts and only one or two are really open for competition.
Hixon hasn't done poo for this team! And again, his career best was only as good as Gettis' rookie season, yet, he's sat on his ass up to this point through preseason and fully expected to be given his spot. That pisses me off, and I suspected that was his mindset b/c why else would a guy on the fringe just continually be comfortable in sitting out this long?
I'm almost willing to put money down on him playing this week, now.
Gettis is the guy who should have his spot guaranteed. Not some career slot receiver who can't stay healthy that has no prior history with our team and is watching everyone else put in work.
Idk, for Person to even ask if its putting pressure on Hixon, as though Hixon has already laid claim to a roster spot over Gettis, who has worked hard for 3 years now... That's just irks me.
Gettis better be on this team, and he better be given the opportunity to contribute.
Well said. I don't think that philosophy works in New England with Bill Cheatacheck. The best players should play
