Ginn A Return Man?


Best Answer panther4life, 16 August 2013 - 11:25 AM

Rivera mentioned that we know what he can do as a return man so he wants to give some other guys a chance to showcase their skills.

 

So yes he's our starting returner and right now we are just trying to figure who his backup is going to be.

Random question, hadn't seen it asked anywhere...

 

but why hasn't Ginn been KR/PR at all in the preseason? Is he in Rivera's "dog house?" Every depth chart updated has him starting still but have yet to see anything..

I sincerely hope that he returns one or two in the preseason.

that's what I figured, just wasn't sure if I was missing anything. Adams looked good last week!

me too. i guess he's been doing it long enough to be able to jump into games without a long adjustment period but for the sake of continuity with everyone on special teams it seems like it'd be advantageous to have him returning some lives balls against real opponents.

all have been okay, so Ginn must be the secret weapon! He's been a dud at WR imo.

Gladly this is a reminder that it's preseason. Seeing that return to the ten yard line was difficult to watch. As bad as our returns have been the past couple seasons, it hasn't been that bad.

I read somewhere (maybe Jonathan Jones said it) that Ginn was up to return a punt in the first half of the game last night but didn't get a chance...2 TD's and 3 turn overs.  It seems like they are going to let him get a few reps at some point.

Were you confusing Ginn with Crabtree? He's going to be a competent back up for us and has done what he's supposed to. Him and Anderson were not on the same page but he did play well with Cam.

Was solid last night.

23 yarder

16 yarder

Made him the most productive WR in the first half....over Smitty.

He seems to be better with Cam than DA. They have hooked up a lot in camp. Wasnt out there game 1 with Cam

I'll say this, Game one's errors were on DA.  I think he'll do more at Returns

Nevertheless you're saying Ginn>Gettis/Lafell/edwards? One out of 3, yes. At the end of the day Pilares is irrelevant and Joe Adams is on a tight rope due to roster spots.

Just to put it out there..

Ginn may actually be our secret weapon on offense aswell, and we may not be willing to show what could be comming at this point in the preseason. Kinda like bluffing.

Same could be said for every facet of our team. We have looked very vanilla for a reason.

The guy can still be a very good receiving option. He's an absolute burner that's been playing in a west coast system his whole career. Now that he's in a vertical scheme I think he can be a real weapon
