yes really, on returns i have been more impressed with cox/hawkins
and as a RB i think Dixon is a better runner at this point, he is more of a leader and plays special teams coverage well
i just don't think he has the vision and dances waaaay too much behind the line
if he could learn to slow his mind down, he could be good.
LaMichael averaged 4.6 ypc and 5.9 ypc in the regular and postseason last year, respectively.
Anthony Dixon's career best is 3.7 ypc.
PREseason against 1 defenses, and he doesn't look so good
If we have James or Dixon getting 15+ carries a game, there is something wrong, ypc doesnt really seem that important on a handful of carries.
and last season Dixon converted 100% of this 3rd down conversion carries. He plays better on ST, he blocks a lot better than James too. I think he is a more complete back, not as talented, but better.
