Chris Johnson punks Ted Ginn Jr.

Just got off a conference call with Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson. Johnson, who once ran a 4.24 time in the 2008 Indianapolis Combine, is obviously quite fast.

And that speed leads to a lot of conversations.

And the conversation today involved questions about how he'd do in a match race against Ted Ginn Jr., Miami's resident speed merchant.

"That's not even a legitimate question," Johnson responded.

Allllllrightie then. How would you do in a match race against track star Usain Bolt, Johnson was asked.

"That's a better question," he said.

Johnson then told the story of being at a pool party on South Beach in the offseason and several Dolphins, including Joey Porter and Ginn were present. He said Ginn and him got to talking about a race and Ginn actually challenged him to a race.

Johnson was apparently all in. To hear him tell it, he told Ginn to meet him on Ocean Drive and they'd run right there, right then.

"I showed up," Johnson said. "But he didn't."

[Update: Ginn talked in the locker room and confirmed the story is true. But he had no desire to get into a tit for tat with Johnson.

"It's nothing that relates to football," Ginn said. "That right now is not really my main agenda. I just want to go out and play football. It's not like I play defense and he play offense or he play defense and I play offense. We both on the same side of the ball. It's not a benefactor to me at all. I just want to talk about, you know, something else than that."

The best man may win. It's all up to the man upstairs. I know he's pretty fast and I'm fast and it would be good for both of us to run one day. But until that happens, I don't think this week is the week to really go into details about it."

Aside from it seeming as though Ginn had insurance on his mind before his interview, -- thus the inappropriate use of the word benefactor -- he did exactly as the Dolphins wanted him to do. He didn't stir any controversy that might motivate an opposing player. So that's that.]

Newswise today, Reggie Torbor (hamstring) did not practice. Jake Grove (ankle) practiced full for the first time since he suffered the high ankle sprain against Carolina Nov. 19. Grove worked primarily with the second unit.

Joey Porter (right knee) and Vernon Carey (back) were limited in practice.

For the Titans, Vince Young (hamstring), Keith Bulluck (non injury), Kevin Mawae (back), David Thornton (shoulder), Tony Brown (knee), and Eric Bakhtiara (concussion) did not practice. Nate Washington (ankle) was limited.

I asked coach Tony Sparano if any college has asked permission to interview any of his assistants for a job. This based on speculation the Virginia Cavaliers are targetting Miami oustide linebacker coach Jim Reid as a defensive coordinator candidate.

"No," Sparano said, before explaining now is the time for coaches to concentrate on winning games for the Miami Dolphins.

I'm told this doesn't necessarily eliminate Reid from a possible move to Virginia. It does mean he will not interview for anything prior to the end of the NFL season.

By the way as I reported on my twitter earlier today, the Dolphins cut Nevin McCaskill from the practice squad and added OL Ray Feinga, formerly of BYU.

Check back soon, I'll have more updates as news happens.

Sad to say, but it's easy to "punk" a punk.

CJ's fast AND he's a Baller. Ginn? Meh.

LOL!!! You know what Mando? That was probably your first and last conference call with Chris Johnson. He didn't call Ginn a punk. He called Ginn a coward. I'm sure his girl tossed the keys to him but he dropped them down a sewer or something. Ginn is too honorable to not show up for a race he asked for.

LOL!!! You rock man!

Go Ginny

sorry if someone thought of this already.....but best comment from PFT:

Ginn would win a race to the sidelines!

Although ginn may not have developed into a good player, he really is a class act. That being said, I'm getting sick of how high Chris Johnson is getting of himself. He talks about his speed and challenges someone to a race every damn week... I think Ginn would def come close. He may lose in the 40, but in the 100 hed destroy johnson, because while johnson is quicker, ginn's top speed is ridiculous!

Please dolphins D, can you shut this guy up...

Who cares, JUST CATCH THE BALL!!!!!!!!!

WE would consider adding Ted(No jock strap required) Ginn to our presidential run but unfortunately there's no side lines in the Political Arena..... "VOTE DODSWORTH/MENACE 2016"

Aloco if we going to race I picture it like a cartoon where I am road runner and you are wiley coyote always trying to set traps for far better athlete, but always hurt yourself in comedic way.

You will be left in my dust and starting at skidmarks like your mommy when she wash your laundry.

P.S. To see a fat person falling is very funny to me

The only person faster than CJ in Florida high school in his senior year was the Olympic bronze medalist in the 100m (Walter Dix) and the first person to win 4 NCAA titles since Jesse Ownens (Xavier Carter). No one else in Fla (or Ohio) posted a faster time than CJ according to the 2004 national rankings. I'll take Florida's best over Ohio's best in a track race (and football) every time.

armando--benefactor is not appropriate in the insurance context either. a benefactor is someone who makes a gift or bequest.

just sayin--if your gonna criticize Teddy's word usage, you should use the word correctly too.

You can meet me at Reeves park for the race.

Do they have side-lines carlito???

at least CJ didnt challenge him to a catching and hitting contest, Ginn would of left the country*lmao*

You must think you funny because you fat butt stuffed with bananas in your money butt. you like to see you fat butt fall.

Mando, The reason Ted(Side-line)Ginn was a no show Was there were no side-lines, Now if you put Johnson and ginn in the middle of the field and said 1st one to the sideline wins I'd bet the farm on Ginn.....

You must think you funny because you fat butt stuffed with bananas in your money butt. you like to see you fat butt fall.

Im sorry my man, i didn't mean to offend the illiterate, what form of language is that from which u speak agian!

LOL@ superPHIN....

Has anyone seen my husnand? He isn't home yet and I made him his favorite: swedish meatballs. When he gets home I'm gonna bash his head in with a golf club.

So did anyone hear a Ted Ginn comment on this?

He never manned up fir the dropped passes earlier in the year why grow balls now!!!

lmao @ menace. The only thing that could cause him to lose a race to the sidelines would be if he sees someone else on the field approaching him from his periphery and he instinctively stumbles and falls to the ground. I wouldn't bet anything on him.

For not fir

We are back in it baby! Can't wait to play those punk Dolphins again. Oh wait, thats right, we were already swept by them. Never mind.

He is scared to get hit!!

That's tru Bra1n, he falls more then I do after a nite of Heavey drinking...

superphinn monkey butt. i no talking to you . i talking to monkey butt carlito. go back to licking monkey balz.

Who hasn't punked Ted Ginn???

Chris Johnson has nothing on this - the best Ted Ginn punk ever:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYSxJgjjJFc

I would rather not have Carlito licking my balz, thank you. That's Coach Belicheat's job.

Ginn is afraid of his own shadow , and he got popped good own that first return last week biggest hit he has taken all year.

Mando, Is Sperry still active and do you think he will have a good chance to stay with the team? He is from my hometown. Our only NFLer.

Image, Thats got to be the funnest Video Ive seen in years,Snoop Dog Rocks.... Drop it like it's hot............

Kevin , is it true that sperry's father is a rip off artist with his Consruction company ?

Carlito, some one in real love w/ you faking my beautiful name ALoco.

ps.....i love every one .i never use such dirty fin dialogue.

Don't know his family. Small town but mind my own business. Sperry was a stud in high school and college though. He looked like a man playing with boys.

You must of heard something ?

Nope, family has a good reputation in the circles I run with.

" in the circles you run with ". Right !

Kory, why so negative?

Like I said I never butcher the English language like that, hence it was a fake ALoco. I once screwed up a sentence really bad but that was when I was eat Wendys Frosty off the Cuban's stomach (no cup, just tongue to skin). I never leave a dirty stomach.

(( circles of circus )) .Right.

ALoco, that was funny .are you from mexico like carlito .

Aloco, Please refrain from using my good name in your posts..("VOTE DODSWORTH/MENACE 2016") Iam trying to run for public office my friend, Try using " Eating meat ball subs off Tiger woods stomach, His name's already trashed, Thank you for your cooperation....

He punks him because he knows Ginn chickens out of contact and CJ loves it. But if they'd run 100 yards on a football field, I say Ginn takes him.

but i want to eat meatball subs off your stomach cuban menace

Cuban, how you gonna let ALoco eat a frosty off your stomach?

Chris Johnson also said he would beat Bolt in the 50 meters.

mark sounds funny and in love

I find it Quite Disturbing to be honest with you, Maybe Mr.Doddsworth know's some Lawers....

Yeah, look forward to Chris Johnson running against Bolt on 2012 U.S. olympics team... YEAH RIGHT!

Ginn will definitely win any dropped passes competition.

DUUHHH ! ginn will definitley win any dropped passes competition. DUUH ! Don't quit your day job.

Perhaps Ginn's lack of intelligence has benafactor in his development?

Here's a scenario, Ted(no jock strap required)Ginn's going over the middle and the pas is thrown,And the defenders are closing in What will ted do??? A)Curl up in a fetal position B)trip over his two left feet , C)drop the pass and curl up in a fetal position, D)Make thew catch and take a brutal hit????????? If you answered "D" you haven't watched Ted(Side-line)Ginn the past 3 years... The correct answer is B..........

I LOVE TED GINN BLOGS............

If not Frostys I can do 3 sundaes from McDonalds because they are only a dollar each. mmmmmmmmmmmmm hot fudge and a flabby hairy stomach.

banana
