You assume that if Getts drafts Austin, he'll want him returning kicks and punts full-time. That may not be the case since his frame is smaller than Smitty's.


I assume they would try every option they can to get the ball in his hands in the open field. No better way then PR/KR.

You can't blame the QB for bad route running and droppies that Ginn has been plague with.


Drops caused by bad throws.

Bad routes my ass.

Whatever dude you can't keep blaming everybody else for you not living up to your potential. He has to shoulder some of the blame.

He has never been a good route runner depending on his speed more then technique. And his hands were always suspect.

Every player we signed has been a starter at some point.

I find it difficult to believe you can actually blirt out its Rivera and Cam against the world? Evidently, with the tone you've set, you feel they will suck this year. And it is all Gettlemen's fault. Is there any reason or evidence for this wild statement?

Or you just trolling? Trying to get a rise from someone over the excitement that we got Dwan back, and signed a few FA? Cuz, i guess we didn't do what you thought we should? Or do you have a plan that could work, and are frustrated you have no way to implement it?

I am just curious? Because that is one extemely prevocative statement. All ye Debbie Downers unite. Long live the negativity.

Jimmy Clausen was a starter at one point....we still haven't brought in a legit FA to help a hole. That isn't being Debbie Downer...just a realist.

And yes, odds are VERY VERY high Rivera is in a do or die season . Again, just realistic.

And NO, repeat NO...I don't think they will suck. Cam Newton has just needed a play in a few games from someone....and we could easily been a 10 win team every season. 3rd year....Cam takes even more on his back. Cam will be that good. I believe in Cam....and he will be unstoppable soon. Rivera will put the ball in his hands

Ron yes, Cam no


false.

New HCs bring in there own QBs within 1-3 years pending they aren't a Superbowl QB.

GM isn't going to hire a new school HC. He already said what he believes...Ron was forced on him for a year

How are we going to make him something different as a WR than he has been the last few years?

I'd love to see it but I haven't seen the evidence.


With different players around him. Steve Smith, Greg Olsen and Cam Newton.

Steve Smith in 2010 was not the same WR. It was due to a weak cast of players around him. We thought he had lost a step, and maybe he did, but he's still one of the best in the NFL.

This will be Ginn's first opportunity to possibly play an extensive role in an offense that can chuck the ball all over the field. He didn't see that in Miami or early in SF.

I'd actually like to see Cam take a little less of the offense. Would love to see the running game (minus the QB) get going and open the offense up for Cam a little.

Some of you really need to lower your expectation. Just be happy with the KR/PR part and if he does anything on offense it's gravy.

We need to address the OL-the only weakness Gettlemen has not touched yet, but I agree.

Now we are going to compare his situation to Steve Smith really???

Just don't get your hopes up to high.

Koolkat, I don't think anyone believes Ginn is gonna come in and be gangbusters this year as a WR. Most still want a WR in the first 2 rounds. But the truth is the kid can flat out fly. And if you line Ginn outside one on one, any CB in the league will have a hard time keeping up with him. Not that Rivera will use him that way, but if he did, a DC would have to account for that.

But like you said, he'll improve the return game from day one. I'll take that any day.

He'll be better than the crop of shitty return guys we have now, but people expecting him to be a good WR make me laugh


At this point..........not expectations...but rather hope.

Ginn said he wanted the chance to play WR...and not be just a return guy. Have to think he was told he would get that chance here. Hope he can make the best of it. Good thing is that his motivation is likely high. If that does not work out...we still have upgraded the return game.

I disagree. I think some people here think he has been waiting 5 years to have a Breakout season and now it will happen.
