Ginn Jr. Hoping His Career Game is Just the Start

About time. That’s all you can say about the game that Dolphins second-year wide out Ted Ginn Jr. played on Sunday as he had his career game vs the Bills at Dolphins Stadium. All Ginn did on Sunday was catch 7 passes for 175 yards with a long of 64. He also had three kickoff returns for 37 yards as well.

The 175 yards was his career-high, and the seven grabs ties a career-high that was set in week five against the Chargers. In that game though, he only had 55 yards on those seven catches, a 7.9 average. Against Buffalo, he was finally able to get in space, putting up 25 yards per catch.

Ginn is finally showing those talents that made him the 9th overall pick of the draft last year. In the seven Dolphins games this year, he has 27 catches for 352 yards. Last season in all 16 games he had 34 catches for 420 yards and two scores.

“He just keeps getting better and better,” Dolphins quarterback Chad Pennington said Sunday. “You can just tell in his eyes when we’re talking about routes that he’s just very hungry. He wants to be the guy.”

He is well on his way to being “the guy.” Now he will have to do it week in and week out. After that 7 catch game vs the Chargers in week five, he came back the next week had just one catch for minus one yard in the teams 29-28 loss in Houston to the Texans.

We’ll see Sunday at Denver if Ginn maybe finally gets “it.” No question that the Dolphins are a better team with him being the player he was Sunday. Let’s hope those types of games become more and more routine.
