NY Giants and Hixon Look Like Champs

In the New York Giants second preseason game Monday night at The Meadowlands against the Cleveland Browns WR Domenik Hixon and the Giants looked like the Champs they are. Hixon, in the absence of Plaxico Buress and Amani Toomer, hooked up with Eli Manning for two Touchdown catches and returned a Free Kick for another, all in the first half! Andre Ware was the highlight of the second half, rushing for 97 Yards on 10 Carries, and had 117 Yards on 3 Kickoff Returns.

But the good news for the Giants is that Eli Manning actually looked sharp in the preseason when he usually looks wishy washy. He's got a new confidence and swagger about him, finally starting his season off as a proven success in the NFL. Maybe he'll carry it in to the regular season and have a landmark year. You can only hope as a New York fan that he plays consistantly at that level for the whole year. If he does I can easily see the Giants going all the way again. And thats coming from a New York Jets fan.

What do You think?
