finally someone relates to what I think about him. Dixon was a great college player in Oregon. He could've won the Heisman but he tore his ACL I believe. In that sunday night game against Baltimore last year, I thought Dixon played great considering the limited time he had in 1st offense and time on the field in general. Expecally when he ran that QB scramble into the endzone
Heck Oregon would have went to the Championship that year if it wasn't for Dennix Dixon getting hurt for the final 2-3 games... Justin Roper took over as a freshman and just couldn't get the job done.
His first play in the NFL was a 57 yard touchdown run from the line of scrimmage in preseason his rookie year!
