It’s not too surprising Dan Henning stood up for wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. during the weekly press conference by the Dolphins offensive coordinator.
Henning’s reasoning is what is surprising.
“Ted Ginn made less mistakes in that game than at least nine other players on the offense,” Henning said, referring to the Dolphins’ 46-34 loss to the Saints.
“Ted Ginn had a game he’s not happy with and we’re not happy with,” Henning said. “But it’s just like my children. I’m not always happy with my children, but I love my children, I’m going to support my children.”
Henning said Ginn remains one of the team’s top-four WRs and he’s the only one who provides a consistent a down field threat.
“Ted Ginn is the only player since we been here that’s gotten behind anybody’s defense and been able to knock to top off the defense,” Henning said. “We’re going to continue to use Ted Ginn the way we think is best to use him to help this football team.”
