Why does this guy continue to get a jersey on Sundays?

Why do they let him run routes without ever targeting him?

I really want Tavares King to get a chance because the dudes got lots of potential. Hixon is wasting our time, and his.

he had a catch last week, more than starmanti.  He's just a placeholer until McNutt is ready to take a starting role.

2 targets, 2 receptions.

That's 100% in any language.

Sounds like the stats from AE's preseason game. You know, the one where everyone claimed that he was finally becoming the next Marvin Harrison

Why do guys think that our #4 WR should be putting up big numbers? Really #5 when you consider the fact that we use Olsen as a defacto WR also.

Nobody said big numbers.

But if you are the 4th receiver, with Cam Newton as your QB, you should be getting involved more often and AT LEAST making somewhat of an impact.

This is a Shula issue too. We need to run se 5 wide sets. This is a passing league.

Considering that a good amount of our offense is run out of a 2 TE and/or 2 RB set with a healthy running game and that WRs 1-3 are productive, I see no reason that a 4th WR would see significant non-ST time on the field.  Your assertion that not running 5 WR on the field means you're not running a productive passing game is ridiculous.

Hixon's one catch against Tampa came right after Ginn's big drop on the deep pass.  It was a message to Ted Ginn.  Hixon is just on the team as insurance.

It was either him, Pilaris, Joe Adams, or Armanti.

I think it's safe to say Hixon is better than anyone of those guys, and it's arguable if any of the three cut would have even caught a pass yet.

Seriously, Tolbert catches more passes than our third receiver some games. With so many pass catchers everywhere he won't have much of an opportunity. It'd be nice to involve him a little more, but he's clearly on the roster as a solid backup. Ginn can't be on the field enough, anyway, and same goes for Lafell and Smitty. We're fine there.

Should we have beaten the seahawks? Yes. DWills fumble at the 8 yrd line cost us

Should we have beaten the bills? Yes. Fug this game was sickening

Theres a very very VERY good chance that we would be 6-1 right now. Are we a full-on "passing team"? Not even close. I do believe that as a whole the NFL has become a "passing league." But u have to take things on a game by game basis. We are destroying teams by having long methodical drives. Runs, Short passes and 3rd down conversions are what we do. Coming out in 5 WR sets a lot would be dumb. We have 1 good WR, a solid #2, and a speed guy with no hands. So youd take DWil land Tolbert out of the game so u can put in Hixon and Gettis? No thanks. We are playing great now and utilizing our players effectively.

The vikings made the playoffs last year with the 2nd worst QB in the league (no im not saying we should be like that. Just showing u that things have to be taken on a game by game basis, and not generalized). The Chiefs have the best record in football this year with a strong defense and emphasis on the running and short pass game. Sound familiar?

You just took what I said and ran a totally different direction lol.

I never said not running a 5 wide isn't productive, I'm saying why not try it out a couple of time if the most elite QB's and offenses run it frequently?

What would possibly be wrong with trying out a couple 5 wide sets and seeing what Hixon/McNutt/King can really do?
