It’s easy to overlook Domenik Hixon. As far as Giants receivers go, Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz are the stars.Ramses Barden is the huge guy with obvious potential. Rueben Randle is the future.
Hixon is a veteran who’s been diminished by consecutive season-ending ACL injuries, and he has no obvious calling card. He’s just a solid player who knows where to go and what to do. Fans appreciate the idea of these competent steady eddies, but not enough that they don’t want Barden and Randle to surpass Hixon on the depth chart as soon as possible.
So it’s worthwhile to take a moment to appreciate Hixon. Because it’s possible that Sunday’s convincing win wouldn’t have happened without him.
