I hold the Dolphins responsible if there's anyone to blame and so here's hoping Parcells side-kick Ireland, promoted way beyond his skills, is doing fine health wise but working at a local McDonalds.
Ireland envisioned him to be the next Jason Taylor. I remember being excited about him and how Ireland actually jumped up in the draft on the cheap. Looking back, you never draft a player that high based on potential and athleticism. If they don't do it consistently at the college level then they aren't going to do it at the NFL level.
Ginn has made a nice career for himself in the NFL. We just drafted him way to high.
This ^^ Could have drafted him in a later round.
Ginn (& family) was going first round. I never understood why we didn't keep him. I get tired of this team getting rid of talent just because he doesn't fit your system. Which team doesn't need a speedy deep threat and a good kickoff returner? Anyways, while I was disappointed that we gave up on him, I was tired of him always running out of bounds to avoid the hit. I think Parcells was, too, and wanted tough minded players.
