Ted Ginn To See Reduced Time


Ted Ginn is finally getting what he wants. The sidelines. After 3 seasons of uselessness it appears that the Miami Dolphins have finally had enough.  After dropping two passes in the loss to the Saints, the Dolphins apparently are sitting their not so number 1 WR according to a report by ESPN’s Chris Mortenson. 

Tony Sparano in his day after presser refused to throw Ginn under any busses but he also stated that what happens on the field often merrits playing time. He followed that with the word that Brian Hartline will see more playing time. Hartline has been sure handed and caught a 67 yard TD pass on Sunday. He has, unlike Ginn, repeatedly made plays when needed. Now, it appears that his time has come.

On Sunday, Ginn missed a pass on the outside on the opening drive of the second half that resulted in not only an interception but a pick-6 as well. On the final drive that could have resulted in a game winning touchdown, Ginn missed a crucial first down toss. While the ball was thrown inside, Ginn clearly dropped it. Two weeks ago against the Jets, fans thought maybe they had seen Ginn turn a corner when he caught a 57 yard touchdown from Chad Henne. Unfortunately it didn’t last.

The question now becomes what will Ginn’s future with the Dolphins be after the season is over?

    I say he should be inactive or else only used as the 5th reciever.  Put Turner in ahead of him.  And while we are at it, Fasano should be benched as well.  He has been plaqued with the Ginn syndrome as well.  He is in a contract year and cannot come down with big catches.  That pass from Brown is a catch every TE that has played us this year would have made. 

    But hey, lets not stop there.  Send Gibril Wilson to the bench as well.

    Ginn, Fasano and Wilson all have earned themselves a whole lot of sitting time.

    I say we send him to play with his lover in Baltimore..  After all he believes in Ginn and his family..   This sucks because I’ve been waiting for Ginn to prove everyone wrong however it looks like that will never happen.  I think Cammy, Bess and Hartline will do just fine.  Shed dawg, I agree what is up with Fasano??  Last year I thought we had a stud for a long time at Tight end..

    Ginn has had his chances. It’s time we go a different route. It’s a shame that the Dolphins didn’t pull the trigger on a trade for Edwards or another wide receiver before the trading deadline. At least it’s pretty certain that the Ginn era is over. If the Phins resign him at the end of the season I would be suprised.
