You actually think Lattimore will replace Dixons STs contributions??
Most people think he doesn't need to. So many people under value special teams. I think there are players on this team that could do better than Dixon did in his 3 roles, but I do not think anyone can do all 3. So that is 1 other player active over a valuable backup.
Also, Dixon was a STs leader, not to mention the already developed chemistry with Spillman, Osgood, ect. Dixon was huge many times for us on STs, plays that gave us decided advantage in field position, mostly at critical times in games.
Lattimore might get more yards in his RB role, but he won't come close to Dixons STs contributions.
Don't even get me started on Dixons cheerleading role contributions......
