    WVDolphan's Get Real. Today's subject "The Ginn Family"

    This may be the shortest edition of Get Real ever.

    Ok. All of you guys have to stop whining about how we traded Ted Ginn Jr. for a 5th round pick. Not because Parcells dosent blow, but because 90% of you who are now complaining about it HATED Ted Ginn Jr. and were ready to trade him for a bag of doritos. GET REAL!

    And while its true we could use his speed, return skills, and his presence as a receiver to stretch the field a bit, we shouldve replaced those assets of his with a different player or two at the position. You know.......a guy that could actually catch the ball as well to go along with those things.

    We have absolutely no depth at the WR position. Thats why we kept 2 undrafted FA's at WR.

    I was all for trading Ginn as well. Which is why I have yet to complain about his absence. However, I for some reason, felt after trading him that we might actually draft a playmaker or two, especially when you know that trading him leaves you void of a return man.

    But, NO. Of course we had to draft MORE CORNFED LINEMEN! This is what makes trading Ginn a blunder.

    Trading him was a fine move, unless you werent going to replace him. Thats why I thought for sure we were drafting McCluster when we traded down. I guess that made too much sense though. There were a handfull of guys I wanted to draft at the WR or RB/return specialist position though. I thought for sure we would get at least one.

    So yea, nothing wrong with trading Ginn. He blows.......REMEMBER. But, trading him and not replacing his assets was a really stupid move.

    Anyways, stop talking about Ginn and how youre pissed that we traded him. You arent. There were about 3 people total on this board that liked Ginn as a player while he was here. So GET REAL!!!

    over under 14 and a half pages? lol.

    also, i do agree. i did like his big play ''POTENTIAL''on deep routs and return game, but otherwise he was a big ***** and never did the extra work to go for a ball. we should have drafted mccluster though, he looks good, and he could have given us that return guy that we needed.

    Yea after trading ginn, i also thought we would get a playmaker like McCluster. but after we pass and KC got him i figurerd we get some other playmakes. eventually we got line men and LB's. Oh well theres always next year. But we I can't keep saying that. 2011 Draft we HAVE to get playmakers.

    Ginn sucks. It really is amazing, go back to before the Draft most of the people pining for Ginn were cursing his name and his family religiously. You people flip flop worse than a politician.

    Here's the thing. Ginn's 2009 season was a debacle, to be sure. Throughout the 2007-2008 seasons however, Ginn was coming along, showing flashes, and making plays before it all blew up in his face last year. Couldnt catch a cold. Prior to that, here and at OSU, he was known for being sure-handed. I'm not suggesting he would ever have become a #1, but alongside a #1 he couldve been a playmaker for us.

    I'm all for trading players, most any players, if the value is there. To this day, I still believe we got great value for Welker(2 and a 7), and fantastic value for Chambers(2). A #5 is bordering on a throwaway pick though. Before people swarm in and predictably remind me Brady was a 6th rounder, any of low round picks are questionable as whether they'll even be on the opening day roster, much less contribute. For every Tom Brady and Marques Colston, there are thousands of low round picks you've never heard of. Bottom line is we got terrible value for a guy that could've helped us.

    Um, we did have a returner, he just didn't make it out of training camp. His name was Kory Sheets.
    When I die I want to hire the Miami Dolphin's to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time.

    did you see the pick where Ginn didn't even look for the ball?

    his receiver IQ is less than zero

    and he is still a coward

    we were 7-9 last year because of the defense. thats why drafted defense this year. if we had ginn, mccluster or any other imaginary player we would still be 2-2.

    Boom, i was one of the 3... ive got 5 pages of red rep from x-poc in my profile settings to prove it... "Ginn sucks." in every single one.

    I do admit, WV, many of this kids now are mad because we don't have that speed here anymore. They are coming out saying WTF but yet they were that same crowd that called for his head. "We'd be better off releasing him"

    I knew we were too stupid to find someone to replace him as a return man and that kind of speed is hard to replace as well. Like i said, maybe he gets open on a deep route once per game with marshall drawing the safety attention. Maybe he gets us to the 50 on a return after a team just scores on us. The only reason the 49ers were in the game late was because ginn was getting them ridiculous field position. I said the whole time he was here if we could find someone to replace him, i'd have no problem getting rid of him. The problem was we didn't.
