Ted Ginn "off to the side" while Dolphins practice

On Monday, we learned that Dolphins wide receiver Ted Ginn was headed to the doghouse in Miami.

He arrived Wednesday.

Edgar Thompson of the Palm Beach Post reports that Ginn was off to the side of practice with rookie Patrick Turner and the team’s practice squad receivers while Miami’s first- and second- team offenses practiced.  Davone Bess and rookie Brian Hartline appear to be the starters, with Greg Camarillo lining up with the second team.

It will be interesting to see if Ginn gets any playing time against the Jets this week.  His drops have been costly this season, but he is the team’s only vertical threat and he scored the game-winner a crucial touchdown against New York just two games ago.  (Why, then, are these two teams playing again already?)

Ginn did some work in one-on-one passing drills, lining up against a new practice squad safety — Nate Ness.  Ginn reportedly beat Ness to get open the end zone.

You can probably guess what happened next.

  1. If anyone’s dumb enough to come sniffing around Cam Cameron for either a head coach position or a GM position down the road, the Ginn pick should be Exhibit A of why that’s a horrible idea.

  2. “(Why, then, are these two teams playing again already?)”
    Because the Jets and Giants are two different teams. I’m going to hope you’re not that retarded, and that that was a bad joke.

  3. In related news, Darrius Heywood Bey & Louis Murphy CONTINUE to start for the Oakland Raiders.
    I wish coach Barney Rubble would put both of those mamalukes “off to the side”. How do you make it to the NFL as a WR if you can’t catch? Who cares how well they run routes, or how fast they run if they are always dropping the damn ball?

  4. “and he scored the game-winner against New York just two games ago. ”
    No, Gregg, Ronnie Brown scored the game winner with 6 seconds left on the clock. Ted Ginn scored on the drive before that one.

    stopwest I really hope you are not retarded enough to post something without at least checking the schedule. That was not a bad joke. You simply are retarded. They payed the Jets in week 5 and play them again in week 8.
    Wow your a dumbass. calling out one person and actually making yourself look stupid. Thank you for giving me a laugh today RETARD!!!

  6. i would gladly trade ginn to the raiders for louis murphy, straight-up.
    too bad trading is done.
    hartline is a more complete receiver than ginn, and far smarter. i’d rather have 3 receivers who can catch but aren’t deep threats than one deep threat who can’t catch.
    stopwest – gregg is referring to the dolphins playing the jets, twice…. in a span of 3 weeks. it is too soon for two teams to play each other again, especially given the fins have had a bye week. so the fins played the jets, saints, and jets again, in that order.

  7. stopwest,
    The Jets and the Dolphins played on 10/12, which was two games ago. Nice irony in using “retarded” though.

    Week 5: OAK at NYG, NYJ at MIA
    Week 8: NYG at PHI, MIA at NYJ.
    All some people do when they come to PFT is look for something to scrutinize. Some are good at it, you are not.

  9. Why, then, are these two teams playing again already?
    Because the NFL is being run by Goodell, the single most incompetent commissioner in professional sports today. Yeah, I realize he does not personally create the schedule, but ultimately it is his responsibility.
    Of course, Goodell being the most incompetent commissioner in sports today is a stunning indictment when you realize that the NHL commissioner is Gary Bettmann, and the MLB commissioner is Bud Selig, two exceptionally incompetent commssioners in their own right.

  10. Gregg Rosenthal said: “On Monday, we learned that Dolphins wide receiver Ted Ginn was headed to the doghouse in Miami.”
    Actually most of us figured this out on Sunday. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out a receiver who has had game changing drops in two recent games on a Parcells lead organization was gonna be watching from the sidelines.

  11. It was booed when they picked him in the draft, and for good reason. He hasn’t shown up at all.

    Thankfully there are always really stupid people to make us laugh, no matter what kind of a day we are having. What an idiot.

  13. The ginn experiment is broken, over, dead!!! Move on with team and bench the mofo let him play for cam cameron !!! In the meantime pick up matt jones to fill his void or marvin harrison

  14. yeah i really don’t understand why we don’t at least bring matt jones in for a look-see. he must be extremely radioactive.
    what’s the deal gregg? can anyone at PFT do some sleuthing, asking some teams FO’s why Jones is not getting any tryouts?
