Please God, Make it Stop!

22 Feb

Let Teddy Ginn off the hook already. Please. This is like watching someone club a baby seal. He doesn’t want to be “the guy”. He doesn’t want to get tackled. He doesn’t want to fight for the ball. Can we please just put him out of his misery and get an actual #1 wideout?

We’ve got our slot guy in Davone Bess. We’ve got our McCaffrey-esque possession-honky in Brian Hartline. Can we please have a stud WR to finally take the weight of the entire Dolphin nation off of Ginn’s easily bruised shoulders? Boldin? Brandon Marshall? Antonio Bryant? Dez Bryant? Brandon LaFell? Aurrelius Benn? Someone? Anyone?

Then Teddy can simply return kicks. Nice and easy. Catch ball, run fast. Maybe the occasional gadget play or four receiver set? He’d still have a chance to make big plays, just fewer chances to make crappy ones. Now Snoop, grab the mic…

    I would say lets get rid of Ginn when we get the chance. It someone wants to trade us a #3, we should say, “bye bye”. If someone wants to trade us a another young player that can contribute, we should say “bye bye”.

    Heck lets OFFER him and a #2nd Draft pick to Denver for Marshall.

    The kid plays scared. Thus, we DON’T want him returning the ball or touching the ball period. He cost us the N.O. game with his bizarre drop.

      A 3rd rounder would be a miraculous haul for Ginn… I don’t mind him returning kicks. When he finds a seam it’s trouble. He had a couple called back for holding in 2008. It may be the one chore he can handle.

        Yeah, but let’s not forget how often TGinn simply runs out of bounds on kickoffs rather than take a single hit, or how he drops to the ground at the slightest breeze from an opposing player’s arm tackle. I think I can probably find 3 or 4 emails from a certain bottlenosed blogger ranting about both of those things.

        Sure, until there’s something better we can put him deep on KOs and give it a shot — we were 11th in the league last year on KR yardage, not bad — but I feel like we’ve got to cut the cord at some point. Let him be someone else’s problem.

        Would I rather have Cribbs back there? Of course. Would I rather we draft Jacob Ford in the sixth round and lock him in as the next Dante Hall (though Jacob’s a far more polished receiver than Dante was)? Of course. But I suppose, if the Trifecta refuses to par ways with Ginn, he’s the best return man we’ve got.

    Where does Camarillo fit in? Man hasn’t dropped a pass in 3 years. He might have dropped one in pop warner some time ago but there’s no evidence to prove it. I prefer him over Hartline personally.

      Camarillo is certainly in the mix, but it seems that Henne’s heart hummed for Hartline down the home stretch. Brian’s a little bigger, though not by much. Still, the discussion certainly underlines the wealth of fair to middlin’ wide receivers we have kicking around. And I have a hunch that Patrick Turner has a good shot at being equally fair, and just as middlin’ as the others.

    I’m giving Ginn one more season. He’s had countless QB’s his first 3 years, especially year 1. This time he gets a full offseason with Henne as his QB. Maybe not a bona fide #1 but I’m holding out hope for #1b or #2a.

    GO FINS!!

    Dan, I heard Teddy Ginn, Jr. and Braylon Edwards were recently spotted asleep together on the sidewalk of Ocean Drive. Seems they had been clubbing it up but when it came time to drive home, neither one could hold the keys long enough to unlock the door.

    I also heard they were both allergic to pigskin… and contact. But not court-appointed community service.

      They are certainly two peas in an easily catchable pod. I move that Ginn joins Braylon in The Meadowlands immediately. The Butterfinger Brothers!
