    Why is Ted Ginn not returning kicks?
    He is not proving to be a #1 WR and appears to be just an average WR.
    He CAN return kicks at the NFL level as he clearly evidenced last year.
    Why not have your best players do what they do best?
    What are we saving him for by not playing him on ST?
    Is returning kicks going to take THAT much extra out of him?
    Shouldn't we be trying to get him as many "Touches" as possible?
    Especially "In space" where he can potentially make a game changing play?
    Can't he make the same impact returning a kick for a TD as running a 9 route?
    Isn't ST 1/3 of the game?:err:
    The Bears are using Devin Hester in as many roles as possible. Why don't the Fins do the same?:err:

    i think they are just trying to see if a guy like Foyster or Bess can return kicks. Im sure Ginn will be our KR come opening day.

    Don't reveal your #1 weapon in the preseason

    I think its because they already know Ginn can be a return man. But who else can be? Can't hurt to find out who's the best and who's the backup.

    Yes both answers that I was going to say were already given.

    (1) You don't need to have your starter and possibly #1 weapon returning kicks in preseason, it's pointless. Plus you risk major injury.

    (2) Always have to find a backup that can share duties for the sake of Ginn getting injured in regular season. You'd need to find someone just as good to fill those shoes.

    You said it yourself, he CAN return kicks. We already know that. Do you have any questions that need to be answered about Ginn's ability to return kicks? Preseason is for answering those questions, and obviously BP and Co. have none. They do need to see what others can bring to the ST. And yes, it could take THAT much out of him. Why risk the injury in a meaningless game (as far as his return abilities are concerned)?

    Oh, and Hester only returned one punt. I think Chicago might already know what they have in that department as well.

    Pre-season is for trying different possibilities... I mean, try to remember who was returning some kicks a year ago.....




    .... Ronnie F'n Brown!!!!

    That was just plain ignorant from Cameron. He really wanted Chatman to win the starting RB spot and was doing everything to make Ronnie look like ****.

    Since the Fins Official Site lists Ginn as both the number 1 KR and number 1 PR on their depth chart (through yesterday), I'd say you are exactly right with this answer! :kick:

    Man the regulaer season cannot get here soon enough for Ginn. People are questioning literally everything they can about him.

    and why is ronnie brown carryin the rock only 4 times ?
    why is our starting defensive unit on the field only for a quarter ?

    it's preseason, those are tests, evaluations.
    Come week 1, ginn will be returning his first KO for a TD in the 08-09 season against none other than the stinkin jets

    The obvious answer I would think is that you have to give your marginal roster players a chance to show that can can contribute in more than one position. The ability to play special teams often is the difference maker when deciding roster spots. Bess for example is a better receiver than Foster but if Foster can prove his value as a kick returner, that may give him an edge.

    Wes Welker probably would've never been given a chance to show what he can do as a receiver if he hadn't been a good kick returner. If no one steps up, I would think Ginn will be returning kicks come opening day.
