    I'm not a classless Panther fan, if the Dolphins win Sunday I'll be here right after the game to congratulate you guys. Take my word for it. I'll probably even make a few return visits considering most of the people on this forum can carry on a good football conversation and know what they are talking about. Also this is one of the only football forums that looks like it's been updated in the last decade.

    I have an account for all 31 other teams and I have to say Dolphins fans are the most knowledgeable and hospitable ones that I've come across yet.

    Ted Ginn is a good reason he the Panthers are 7-3 right now. I knew he would bring his elite returning game but, I never expected him to be a factor in the passing game. I remember he had that great 790 yard season in Miami back in 08. I knew he had the talent to be a decent WR but, I didn't think we would be given the chance. Turns out Cam was perfect for Ginn and Ginn was perfect for Cam. Right now Ginn has 411 yards on 24 receptions, averaging 17.1 yards a catch, if he had the same amount of receptions as Steve Smith does this season he would be on pace for a 1300 yard season. Ginn's last minute TD was probably the main reason we beat the Pats *besides Cam Newton*

    I always heard Ginn couldn't catch anything and he had brick hands. So far this season he has had the best pair of hands on the team.

    Yea, dumping him for a 5th round pick was ridiculous. Especially when Davone Bess is returning punts. Teddy certainly serves a purpose.

    At least the Dolphins realized his potential and used him in the Passing game. It's the 49'ers that really **** the bed. With the injuries they had at WR Ted Ginn could of saved the 49'ers season.

    Also, if anyone else ever wants to have an intelligent talk about any sport come on over to the http://www.carolinahuddle.com We are one of the largest sports forums on the internet and 90% of the people are extremely nice and welcoming. We love having fans of other teams. I believe person you know as SICK is an active member of the Huddle and even one of our moderators is a Seahawks fan.

    bit of a reach. he sucked as a receiver in San Fran because he was a poor fit for their system.

    In the process of us losing to you, I hope Mr. Wake hits your douche of a QB so hard that he ****s himself. Im actually just jealous that you can root for a team that is not a ****ing joke at the moment.

    I've been waiting quite a long time to see a winning team again in the Carolinas.

    Hopefully we have a game without injuries.

    Most of the panthers fans are predicting a blowout. I guess I don't blame them since their team is playing good but our D is better then they think. Should be a pretty close game.

    It's kinda hard to explain, the Panthers will win or lose a close game or it will be a blowout, that's how it's been for the panthers the past few years.

    Trading Ginn was just one of many stupid moves by Ireland, but hey we got a mediocre corner with the 5th rounder we received in return.
    Ginn was vilified by most on the forum because to them he wasn't tough enough. He was too soft for the haters because he didn't lower his shoulder and take on tacklers like Marshawn Lynch. I did not like the trade at the time, did not like it when I saw who the 5 was used on, and have nothing since then to convince me it was a good trade. We had just traded for Marshall. He was going to be getting most of the double teams. That meant had Ginn been kept he would have been going deep with single coverage most of the time. I sure would have liked to have seen that. :pity:

    Hardcore Buckeye here and I knew Ginn was not ready to play WR in the league when he came out. Don't know how you argue he stay another year to develop those skills when you line up a big check vs taking the risk of getting hurt in college. No brainer.

    I've got to ask, were Ginn's hands really that bad in Miami? in Carolina I swear his strength has been catching balls that most WR's would have dropped. I can't recall him having a drop all season.

    Ginn got a raw deal down here, it's not his fault that he was drafted too high. I hope he balls out for Carolina, just not this week.

    Yes he dropped alot of balls but might of been out lack of qb with skill. His only good year was 2008 and he had a very accurate and soft touch qb in Pennington. Still thought he should of got more time to develop then what we gave him. Even though his numbers weren't good, the fact was that the dolphins offense looked better when he was on the field because defenses feared his speed and rightfully so.

    Of course he is!

    It's been a while but when I browsed the Huddle and compared it to the Phins, it's funny how each site handles college basketball and college football.

    I agree that we cut him too early, but in reality Ginn's problem was far beyond not lowering his shoulder and taking on tacklers like Marshawn Lynch. He would catch balls and immediately take off for the sideline, making no effort to avoid or escape tacklers and leaving a large number of first downs on the field. He simply did not want to get hit, and it will be interesting to see whether he has changed his style of play on Sunday.

    He had one huge drop against Niners (I think) on a go route that hit him in the hands and would have been a TD. Besides that, he's been solid.

    Agreed. Yet another example of Jeff Ireland being completely unable to fill a need without creating a hole. Ted Ginn wasn't worth the first rounder spent, but he had more value than the 5th round pick. Electrifying kick returners with marginal receiving skills (at the time) aren't easy to come by. 5th round picks rarely pan out especially when made by Ireland.

    I think Marshall and Ginn could have made a dangerous duo, but we'll never know.

    I don't hate Ginn, but that's my perception from having watched him play every game he played for the Dolphins. To each his own, I guess. I would have kept him as a returner and eased him into the WR role. Sometimes players have to develop mentally, too.

    I don't understand how people called him soft, maybe he changed. Just a few weeks ago he laid down a nasty block to help us score an 89 yard TD pass

    I watched all his games too. Sure, sometimes rather than take a big hit, he'd step out of bounds, but to say whenever he caught a pass he made a beeline for the sideline is an exaggeration.

    He was always timid going over the middle, didn't fight real hard for a 50/50 ball. This gave him the perception of bad hands. He's going to struggle against aggressive CB's.

    Welcome to the forum, good luck your next game. I hope we destroy you. :)

    Crazy, hard to believe he played like that in Miami because you literally just described the opposite of how Ted Ginn has played for us this season.

    Only on down the field balls that if he caught would have won a big game for us.

    Nice name!

    Steve smith has been my favorite receiver to watch over the past decade. Plays with the attitude of Brandon marshall but in a quicker, smaller package. I'm a smaller guy and can appreciatenwhat he does out there.

    He's almost a forgotten player in Carolina, but he can play.nreally excited to see him and Grimes play...no fighting please!




    Seriously though, the fights he gets into...epic.

    Jaw jack teammate...check.
    Slam Vontae on his neck...check
    Post game REAL **** talk...check
    Bomb on player then hit the Ric Flair/George Jefferson strut...CHECK!


    Love that player.

    Crack backs don't count to toughness. But he probably wouldn't have done that his time here

    The Dolphins and Panthers are like the furthest away from being rivals anyway. Well the Giants are maybe our closest NFL ally...at least for me being from New York and getting to watch the Giants success make Jets fans squirm and throw fits, as well as them beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl (TWICE!).

    Yeah Ginn's hands weren't anything to write home about. I mean, he wasn't terrible...just inconsistent. And he was a 1st round pick so there were more expectations on him for the Dolphins fans. It wasn't his fault he was selected so high...but that's what happens. You're selected high, you get a big contract, people expect a lot.

    He single handedly beat the Jets for us in 2010 though with his two return TDs in New Jersey, so he'll always have a special place.
