“I still got my Dolphin sign,” he said Thursday at the Super Bowl, taking off his sweatshirt to reveal the tattoo of the Dolphins logo on his right forearm. “

...

Ginn said he’s OK with the “bust” label.

“It is what it is. If I’m a bust, I’m a good bust,” he said. “I don’t have no bad feelings toward Miami. When I was there, I had nothing but good times.”

...

“My first year I had eight quarterbacks,” he said. “I could never say I went into the ballgame with the same quarterback.”

...

Ginn, who has 2-year-old twins with his longtime girlfriend, still lives in Miramar in the off-season. He said he has no regrets about not making it big with the Dolphins.

“I don’t think it was my play, personally,” Ginn said of being traded. “I think it was a business move that they had to do, and hey, it will be like that sometimes. I got the best of the deal, though.”

I wish we'd kept him. It wasn't his fault he was drafted so high. I thought he had the talent to stick on the roster. He had the speed to stretch the defense and he was a good kick off return man. I never understood the Dolphins decision to let some players go that could have given us depth at certain positions.

I agree with you Dave. Ginn would have still been a very good 3rd-4th wide out to have on the team and also his ability on kick off and punt returns. He got a very bad wrap on teams that were already in disarray (besides the one flash in the pan season of 2008)

I think he ran out of bounds to easy, and was undersized for anything more than open field running.

2009 REVIEW

Ted Ginn Jr.
~ Ranked 76th in the league with 56.2 WR fantasy points (basic scoring system)
~ Tied for 149th in the league with 1 receiving touchdown
~ Ranked 94th in the league with 454 receiving yards
~ Ranked 117th in the league with 28.4 receiving yards per game
~ Tied for 107th in the league with 38 receptions
~ Ranked 75th in the league with 78 targets
~ Ranked 126th in the league with 3 receptions of 20+ yards
~ Tied for 88th in the league with 25 catches for first downs
~ Ranked 265th in the league with 44 yards after the catch (YAC)



Since joining SF he has not broken 300 yards receiving. It must have been a slow day for the media to even bother interviewing him. The waterboy contributed more to that team this year LMAO!!!

He is a FA, lets see how much love they give him in SF lol... We could get him back cheap if we wanted I would guess, I mean he played in 13 games in 2012, he had 2 receptions. He actually is competition for our 3rd WR
:embarrassed:

If he was a reliable deep threat and good 3rd receiver then the 49ers wouldn't have signed Manningham, Moss and drafted Jenkins so high. Not so sure Miami has been missing much.

I'm trying to see where I said he was a "reliable deep threat and good 3rd receiver". I don't see it.

Easy there Big Sensi-Dave. Just a general comment, not a critique or implication toward you. :youwin:

I did not see where you said he was a "reliable deep threat and good 3rd receiver" either BD.

It seems to be becoming, at least an occasional practice to quote someone's post and then write a comment that is not specific to the quotation. Not sure why? It does makes sense that if someone quoted your post and then wrote a comment afterward that there would be some connection.

Hmmm maybe if we tried it ourselves a few times ... . : )

I think Jammer is trying to pick a fight with ole Big Dave. LOL.

He does make a point. Ginn wasn't a reliable deep threat or 3rd receiver. I think we could have used him this past year though.

You're wrong about the furniture. Suede tends to stay warmer than leather.

He was a bust. He needed to go. Too many clutch drops. And he avoided contact like the plague. He was the 9th overall pick in that year. This wasted pick is one of the key failures that have caused the Dolphins to be so thin on talent.

Drafting Ted Ginn at #8 overall in the first round, and getting rid of Wes Welker was one of the worst combination moves in the history of the Dolphins, and the main reason I dislike cam cameron much more than nick saban.
But once the damage was done, and he was a Dolphin, no need to ship him off to another team for nothing and compound it. Sure #8 overall in the first round is too much for a special teams guy, but the Dolphins haven't had a serious return threat since he left.

The game hasn't started yet, but I just can't handle the idea of Ted Ginn with a Superbowl ring and Dan Marino without one.

Funny that.


Your preference of wood houses over brick ones is .... weird. I mean who would not prefer a brick house just ask Lionel Richie.

He might not regret his three seasons in Miami, but I'll bet he does regret not reaching the end zone on that last kickoff return last night.

Ginn was a one man wrecking ball vs. The Jets....

I agree letting him go compounded a bad pick....We would have been better last year had we had him. Desmond Howard?

Always next year he is a free agent today....
