Two weeks ago tonight, Dolphins receiver Ted Ginn made an impressive catch on a long touchdown that helped deliver a win over the Jets.
On Sunday, however, Ginn was back to eating pre-game popcorn, with multiple key drops in the 46-34 loss to the Saints.
Per ESPN’s Chris Mortensen (who likely still has a pipeline to his former ESPN colleague, Bill Parcells), Ginn will see reduced playing time going forward.
Mort also said that, if the trade deadline were tomorrow instead of last Tuesday, the Dolphins would be dialing up the Ravens and offering Ginn to the team whose offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron, drafted Ginn in 2007 with the ninth overall pick.
So why didn’t the Dolphins do it last week? In hindsight, it would have been a great time to sell high, with Ginn looking great against the Jets.
As a result, Miami missed an opportunity, and now they’re stuck with Ginn through the balance of the season.
Unless they eventually decide to cut him.
