So there has been much debate on WZ this year about why Anthony Dixon dresses and plays over Brandon Jacobs and LaMicahel James, and the consensus is always that he adds value to our team because he plays special teams.....whereas the other two dont. Well I was at the Stick (as usual) yesterday and was making a conscious effort to watch Dixon on Special Teams plays. Also, for the first time in a while, my recording messed up so I cant review the game.
But what I noticed while focusing on Dixon is that he is USELESS on the Special Teams unit (at least from my one and only viewing during THIS game). He was letting players run right past him, he was missing blocks and there were a few times where he looked completely clueless out there.
Can anyone who has watched the game again, or broken down the film, comment on this? It is entirely possible that he just had a bad game, as this is the first time I have really focused on watching him. But after my initial viewing of his play yesterday, any player we plug into the ST can at worst do exactly what Dixon did...which is not much.
Can anyone comment on this? If this is how he plays typically, I firmly believe he doesnt warrant a spot on the active roster.
