During Tuesday's practice Ginn turned heads when he raced down the sidelines, beat his defender and hauled in a perfectly thrown ball from Newton in stride for a touchdown. His offensive teammates roared with approval.

"Ted has been a spark," Newton said. "Everyone knows he's fast. I found that out the hard way."

Newton points to a practice where Ginn outran one of his throws and had to slow down to try to make the catch.

"He kind of embarrassed me so I told him, 'Ted, from now on you will never outrun my football,' " Newton said with a laugh. "So if y'all see a pass and it's overthrown and No. 19 is the intended receiver, just know that it's pride more than anything with him. He will not outrun my football."

I do too.

 

With him and Hixon.....we are definitely upgraded over last year.

 

If AE can finally give us anything (based on the tweets and comments, he is getting it done as well)....our WR corp may prove to be MUCH better than most thought.

I hope so ....the knock on him is when he puts on the pads with guys taking shots at him.

 

I guess we will see soon enough

Reading comments on the ESPN article, a lot of 49er and Dolphin fans commenting on how Ginn was afraid of contact and got alligator arms across the middle. 

 

I'm trying to temper my expectations with his receiving capabilities.

He's always shyed away from contact, and he has in the past dropped easy balls over the middle even going back to OSU.  It remains to be seen if that will continue....

Niners and Dolphins both had QB's with weak arms.....they could not use him the way we may use him.

 

I think you will see Ginn used much more here on the outside to stretch the field....he has a QB that can get him the deep ball.

He still has to catch the ball which is something he hasn't done consistently in the past.  I'm not saying he can't turn his career around, but he needs to prove it before I get any warm fuzzy feelings about Ginn at WR.  Now as a returner, oh hell yes I'm psyched....

Way to multi task today.....

 

You are complaining about Ginn in this thread and Godfrey in the other thread.

 

You are going ot give CRA a run for the title of most pessimistic poster on the board pretty soon.

I've watched Ginn play since he was at Ohio State.  He's fast as hell, a very good returner but he doesn't catch the ball consistently, and so far in his career has absolutely shied away from contact.  Since when did making observations turn into being a pessimist?  Again, what's with the all or nothing mentality?  I either think every position is a o.k. or I'm not a fan, a bandwagon basher, pessimist etc....

Ginn has always looked good in practices since he came out of OSU.  I know he was motivated coming here with an opportunity to play a significant role so I hope he is much improved over his Miami/San Fran days.

If we get 40-50 catches from him with smith's normal 80, we might have something here. But when the season start my focus will be on the OL. If the OL is stout then we can go all out in the off season next year for WRs. I know the defense will be there this year so we don't have to worry too much about that. I think we'll make the playoffs this year.
