Vikings Special Teams: Why Hixon needs to be on kick and punt returns this Sunday

 TC needs to get Ahmad Bradshaw off the kick returns and get Hixon back in there. It might be a rule that an eligible receiver can't play the down directly after special teams play, and I see two advantages to that: first, the Giants' drives are SO much more successful when we start out by pounding out 4-5-6 yards, giving us 2nd and manageable where we can run or pass. It frustrates the holy f*ck out of me to see a run up the gut on 2nd/3rd and long after an incomplete pass play on first down. It makes us so much less dynamic and thats when you see 3rd and outs like last week. I cant deal with it, and running the ball on 1st down means we can make due without Hixon in as a receiver for one play. Then, he can come back in after. The Bears do the exact same thing with Devin Hester and that is the end of  any similiarity I ever want to have with that awful team.

Another reason is that we face a vulnerable Vikings special teams that has given up alot of points this year, meaning Hixon can have his way and get us good field position and quick points on the board so our starters aren't out there too long. Another, you can't trust Ahmad Bradshaws hands so close to our end zone!! He almost fumbled away home field advantage last week. Let him actually play his position, after Derrick Ward picks up the 50-60 yards to give him 1,000 on the season.
