Maybe? But I still think we could do better.
exactly... he's a #3, he's barely gonna play if at all. Even if we do sign somebody, say chester taylor, we are only going to pay more money for a guy to sit on the bench... who cares lol
This. I don't understand what the deal is. The guy was a ROOKIE last year. He was picked in the SIXTH round. Gee whiz, people. Give the guy a freaking chance. He's way, WAY better than Omon, and Omon's in his 4th year. Dixon has power that he can use if he chooses too. Just watch some of his games from college where he was dragging tacklers 10-20 yards down the field en route to a TD. His problem is, being a big back, he doesn't think he can fit in the holes and so he tries to bounce it outside.
He has exceptional mobility for a big man and is a great #3 who makes a nice 1-2-3 punch with Gore's all-around attack and Hunter's speed. I am super surprised people are acting like he's been around forever and is some awful player. Give him a chance. Geez.
