It looks like Kyle’s wish to lose Hixon has been granted.
According to Andrew Mason, Hixon is out. Clark is in.
Personally, I didn’t think Hixon was as much the problem as the inability of the coverage team to create a hole for him. Every time he got a good head of steam going, there were always two guys streaking toward him at the right angles; which didn’t leave him a place to go to get through. I’m not convinced Brian Clark will do any better.
But the special teams needs a kick in the ass, and this certainly is one. Will it help the coverage? Will Clark find the holes that Hixon couldn’t? And what are we going to do about the fact that we can’t cover a returner, either?
