Hunter gonna miss ya bud.
seriously no more f'n around....in serious games, we now have to make sure every play call is going to have to be positive yards....no BS plays...no tosses to Gore, no gimmick s**t. Alex, if he is starting, CAN'T JUST TAKE SACKS ANYMORE...he is going to have to throw the ball away or something...I know that might affect his precious completion percentage or what ever, but too bad.
Hunter used to make up for our little mistakes here and there....he could pick up those lost yardages when you didn't expect it with great vision and quickness.
gonna miss the little guy.
dixon sucks... id take james and jacobs over him any day, don't know why some ppl still think he good.
what makes you say that he "sucks"...do you have any recent examples? What is bad about him?
anyway to CC..yeah yeah it is his moment to shine...or more importantly step in and help the team when they desperately need him. We are going to need to keep Gore fresh for come playoff time. So Dixon and Jacobs are going to be needed. I personally think now with Hunter is out, as far as Dixon being 3rd on the Depth chart....he is going to be on a short leash if he is not executing plays.
Dixon is not going to make up for Hunter's threat on the team. I don't think he or even Gore sometimes, has Hunter's vision and quickness. But I do think Dixon is going to get us positive yards....4 here, 6 there, and some break out ones every now and then.
Also, like I said before Dixon's pass blocking ability and catching out of the backfield will help compared to Jacobs.
Also this could allow us to have Dixon and James in the backfield at the same time....we could call a surprise draw play with Dixon hitting the whole blocking someone for James....or a passing play where Dixon stays in to help block and James goes out for a pass.
sorry dixon is on my s**t list since he couldnt get a 3rd and inches in the nfc championship game for us, since then i hated him, he is just slow and tries too juke too much too , just go downfield, your too big and fat to be juking.
