Former WR Ted Ginn Jr. announces retirement

Agreed.

I have a bit of an issue with the QB trying to make a tackle of any sort unless it's the playoffs.  Just too valuable, and don't practice hitting enough to be good at it.

You throw a pick, let the other 10 try to get him.

Competitors are gonna compete. Just the way it is. I remember Brett Favre once hitting an interceptor way late out of bounds. That competitive fire is what makes them what they are.

I get it, but even though they can't really turn it off, it's not a "smart" football move....unless direct playoff implications or in the playoffs.

Ginn made the most from what he had, and that was due to effort on his point.  No matter the outcome, whenever somebody can say they gave their all, that is the best they could do.  We wish his all had been a little better (the stone hands issue), but in the end, it was all he had.

I think I remember reading his dad is an honorable and hard-working guy (and rather a legend in high school football coaching), so his son learned from the best.

I have to wonder how he may have worked out as a DB. I get it, it's hard to take the ball out of the hands of a dynamic athlete like Ginn but damn... you do have to wonder.

There is no doubt the Panthers saved his career. He could barely get on the field for a 49ers team that was desperate enough to pull Randy Moss off his couch. 
 

   Then, after a decent season in CAR, he chased the money(his own words) and couldn’t get on the field in ARI. The Panthers then saved him again. 

 

It's always enjoyable to see fans of other teams stop by, and explain our history to us.

I agree. The QB position is just too valuable. That goes for blocking as well. Just get in the way, and let someone else do the dirty work.

    • Saints - 21 Panthers - 24 The Brees era is finally over. Imo he is a 20-pt advantage in the dome. I think they would have put up 41 on us in the same situation last year.    But Jameis gonna Jameis and I think we get a couple picks, short field, points off turnovers. Their defense is good but the TOs make the difference.    Darnold - Steady again - 24/34 295 yards, 2 TDs; No INTs  Jameis - Throwback Jameis - 39/55, 330 yards, 2 INTs, 2 TD, 5 sacks.    CMC - 140 total yards DJ/Robby - Combine for 200 yards in the air and 2 TDs.    Burns/Reddick - 3.5 sacks.    Horn - 1 INT - balls out to send a message to daddy’s former team.
    • When I see posts that we could have had this guy or why are we not picking up a better this guy at that position, I think... "We can't have everybody we want now". It takes time to build a complete team from scratch. For a new HC, OC and DC to get use to coaching in the NFL. It takes time to clear the dead cap space and bad contracts and build from the draft. It takes time for a young team to build an identity. Ours I believe will be a great defense and a quick hitting offense.  I believe they see 2021 as another step towards that. With Brady and the Bucs dominating and the Chiefs and few other teams at their peak, are we really going win a SB this year? IMO, this year is "hope we can at least win enough games" to come close to a wild card birth and maybe even sneak in. That would build team character and make the fan base start to really believe in the team. I think 2022 is a big step year with 2023 on being, we can compete for a SB run and hopefully win it.  It takes a philosophy and a culture, which Rhule brings. It takes solid depth to overcome injuries, not just having superstars. And it's impossible to have superstars at every position. Darnold may not be the franchise guy but he needs at least another year and a better O-line to really know. We tried to get other QBs and it didn't work. He was a high reward - low risk investment at the time and might turn out pretty good. I said might. Fans are impatient. I would rather build a perennial winner than have the 1 year good, then 2 years bad past (that's what it felt like). But I'm jealous watching the Chiefs and how loud their fans are, or other good teams. The Panthers need to build that consistency to win back the fans and the confidence that they can win most if not almost all games, especially at home. The Chiefs, Seattle, GB, Patriots, etc have home field advantage. We need that. After the music stopped on defense at 20 seconds, the stadium crowd was so low compared to the Georgia fans (2 weeks before) that were more than double the volume with 1/2 the stadium of fans. All this takes time.
