49ers fan on Ted Ginn

"49er fan here...

My two cents on your pickup:

1. He was a fantastic return man during the 2011-2012 campaign – but then he got hurt. Ever since then, he seems like he’s been a shadow of himself. He didn’t have the same kind of explosiveness last season as he did the year before. He still has speed, but there’s a “hesitancy” that he appears to have. It seems like he plays scared and is contact shy since he blew out his knee. He still has good top-end speed, but he’s a lot more conservative.

2. He is pretty sure handed and makes good (albeit, conservative these days) decisions in the return game. He’s not gonna make any huge mistakes.

3. He’s not a WR. I mean, technically he is, as that’s what his listed position is, and he has hands and is theoretically capable of catching a football. But, he’s not going to push for any major time at WR, unless you have injuries or have a worse WR corps than we did in the 2011-2012 season (which featured grand names like Brett Swain and Joe Hastings seeing the field). He can get open deep, but then he’ll drop passes. Go routes are pretty much all he’s good for.

All in all, if you got him cheap (which, you probably did) he’ll be a useful pickup for you guys."

Since it is inevitable this will be posted sooner or later, I'll just get it out of the way now.

And I'll be first to say...3 years old...that's a lot of time to get better. Not to mention he prob felt swag less with chad Pennington throwing to him lol

Like the analysis from that Niners fan. We signed a great returner. Nothing more....and you know what? There isn't anything wrong with that.
