Ted Ginn is Still Doing Everything

Ted Ginn is still doing everything

Ted Ginn, signed by the Carolina Panthers to help with the team's return game, is making a push to be a factor in the team's passing game, as well.

A week after scoring on a 74-yard punt return, Ginn lit up the Pittsburgh Steelers to the tune of five catches for 149 yards. The highlight was a 50-yard catch on on a pass from quarterback Derek Anderson that quickly turned into an 87-yard touchdown, thanks to Ginn's ridiculous top-end speed. 

"I came out and saw the safety take a bad angle right away, and Ted's so fast that I just gave him a chance," Anderson said. "I don't think you can actually overthrow him."

You're preaching to the choir, Derek.

Seems like I can't embed just the video on this one without embedding the whole page. :-/
 
Follow the links below and maybe someone else can figure out how to just embed the video.

I don't know if it's just my internet, but the 1st video cuts out at the end. But the 2nd link will show the long TD catch.

It is hard to play dirty against a man who picks you up.

The 9ers could have used his deep threat skills with Crabtree out.

I like how the D-back just starts jogging after Teddy blows by him. Oh, well, why rip up a hammy when you know there's no way you're gonna catch him?!

^This.
I'm sure those Steelers DBs had nightmares of practicing against Mike Wallace.
Where can I pay to see that footrace? 

Don't text while driving.

Glad to see Teddy find a home. Will definitely help their special teams and offense!!

SCOTTC.

He's never been productive as a receiver save for maybe 1 year in Miami. Maybe he finally developed route running skills and is ready for a breakout. I'd like to see him succeed, but i'm not getting worked up about this since it's the preseason.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

With Steve Smith on the other side, Cam Newton can just toss it up and let either of the speedsters come down with it.

My lions were seriously talking to him both of the last 2 offseasons. Needless to say, both times I was quite disappointed when nothing came of it.

Good to know another Bucks/Lions would have loved Ginn for the Lions

Of all Buckeyes in the NFL, Ted Ginn is the one I root for the most to have a good career. Hoping Carolina will be the spot he really excels.

If he could get paired with a QB who could throw an accurate deep ball, he'll be a threat.  He didn't have that in Miami, nor in SF.   I always wondered what he could have been catching balls from someone like Favre.

That's my dude.  it drove me crazy when he was in San Fran.  they never really gave him a chance on offense. They had both Teddy and Troy Smith for a whole season and never used them together.  although each one tore it up whenever they were actually given a chance.
