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.

Tim, that's an intolerant comment.

I'm not gay, don't know or care about ALoco or Cuban's preferences but that shouldn't be viewed as a negative if it was.

Where's gay Richard anyway?


Come on... You know Aloco only makes these comments to make people uncomfortable and to cause controversy... Why you taking the bait?

The fake ace poster earlier is our good friend aloco.

Carlito is right, Marc. That g damn aloco is always wanting to eat off of other men's stomachs. He is acting like a g@y f@ggot. Dont get mad guys, the dictionary defines this as a happy bundle of sticks.

Mark , don't listen to carlito aka cuban ...you r talking to same guy ,they make the trouble and come playin victims .he's using my name for 2 nights and get people to attack me .i tell you i don't care but i don't like any one to think these guys are nice people .

I come here to talk football, not play jr. high games and impersonate people... I only sign in as Carlito, this is why I sign in blue know... Aloco, I don't care if you get your kicks, just don't blame it on me...

Anyone know if Vince Young is going to play?

i didn't hear you calito asking these guys who r faking my name for few days and addressing them as you do w/ me mr no victim .

time to have my meatball sub w/banana.good night to all including the name fakers .go at it .

why carlito always start shyt with NJ? always get his goat. me think carlito is jealous and envious of NJ. carlito wish he could be as patriotic as NJ, and a conservative like NJ, a businessman like NJ, a workout beast like NJ, and a martial arts student like NJ....

I'm going to TN. for the game with my wife and kid, anyone have any experience dealing with Titan fans?

meanwhile carlito is a resident LEGAL alien of Coral Gables, he does not work a lot becuase he is on this blog, he has allegiance to Honduras, he learn martial arts from Hong Kong Phuey....what a little hispanic fool

only fools speak of things of which they have no knowledge

carlito es un chivato

Carlito, everything I've seen all week expects Vince Young to start. I would love to have a hobbling Vince Young playing qb.

carlito like to gang up on NJ to bash him, becuase others for some GOD unknown reason have a liking for this little monkey from El Salvador. El monito con la carita sucia

It would be nice to see Starks sack Vonce Young and fall on top of him.....hard

C'mon, we have a HUGE game on Sunday, why does this matter?? Tell us about practice, injuries, something important?

Here is what I want to see, either y bell or qwake knockIng the twiching out of that tourette infested Johnson on Sunday!!!

monito con carito sucia. What does this mean?
Oh a monitor car suction???

DMC it means he is a brown little dirty faced monkey.

LeBron is going on off on Philly, sort of like what Randy and the boys r going to do to twitching Johnson

If you saw CJ on the street, you'd swear he was a crackhead. I mean, the constant twitching, the nappy hair, the speed with which he runs. He's like that character from the Dave Chappelle Show

Finally the comments have been fixed.

Dear Mr. Salguero

"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."

If Ted Ginn and Joey Porter had any self respect they should pull a "Tanya Harding/Jeff Gillooly"
on Chris Johnson.

Just Sayin

Soiled :)

Wouldn't be sweet if Ginn was the third receive in a row to catch for over 100 yards, while we keep CJ to under a 100 yards on the ground, as we beat the Titans? That wouldn't be a bad Christmas present.

I am not a big Ginn supporter, but right now he is part of our "family"....and CJ is talking a big game. Let's see what happens

no news here we already knew that Teddy "Out of Bounds" Ginn was a coward!

Mando, let your bosses know that you are losing more and more readers to the Sentinal. Not so much about quality etc. But 1. You have less content, and 2. You are having a lot more content that requires people to register and/or login. Most people don't have to deal with that type of BS. Why is the Herald the only one to do so out of the big 3?


most people don't WANT to deal with that type of BS.

LMAO @ DIEGO. You da Man !

You too , Romulo.


Koudos to you on some good sports writing concerning this Ginn and Johnson BS that the other 2 are feeding into and keeping a Horsecrap story going. You are right, Ginn toed the company line, which is what should be done when you are in a playoff race, Keep the Yap shut and deal with only things that effect the game. Now if only the bloodsuckers would understand... END OF STORY... Move onto the actual stories that YOUR readers care about. Good job Mando

Spaz ! spaz ! spaz !. Oh it's spad.

Diego and Romulo are the same man NJ Phin Fan

NJ what is this I hear that the menace has been vindicated(spelling)? Your thoughts?

No way chonga, I hear that diego and romulo are two cool dudes.

NJ Phin Fan man of many names

Go phins

the plumer is on a roll toniht.

Teddy Gin taking the high road. By design or not hes doing the right thing. But I would bet my money on Ginn. Thats just me.
Truth is who cares lol. This is just fill in fluff for Mando's cronnies. I'm out!

But before I leave...

mark in toranto fkn funny man lol
the chappell show classic

OK I'm out and Mando please have something of more substance soon. THX

why is herald doing stories on non-sense such as ginn's stories?

concentrate on players that are producing for the team (i.e. Starks, Polite, Henne, Camarillo, Bess, Garner, Berger, Wake, Davis,etc)..

come on Mando!! forget about Ginn and his cinderella running shoes!!!


we know TG is fast...lets help him with his vocabulary.

hahah, benefactor. good old ohio state

I can smell dying breed here......stinks

is carlito legal or illegal? Dont matter he can still vote hahaha

Ace , the menace has been vindicated of NOTHING ! Mando already called out many me / cuban menace months ago. He 's sticking up for his cuban friend . Mando loves the cuban menace and his multiple personalities. More blog hits means more money for mando. If you believe otherwise , i have a Brooklyn bride to sell you.

and i know diego , chonga . el guru and romulo are the same person . Right Cuban ?

real nice Armando, as if this kid hasn't dealt with enough crap for having butter fingers.
now you're making it a point to show how bad his vocab is? at least the other reporter starving for a story had the heart to correct his misuse of the word benefactor.
by the way, i think TG would win depending on the distance of the run. as long as there isnt any footballs in the air, ginn wins this one.

NJ you say Brooklyn bride??? What does she look like? LOL

Hey now I too am cuban and I resemble your remark!LOL

bridge. Typo


NJ I just got a visual of this Brooklyn bride. It is Marc in a pink wedding dress and wearing a ton of make up like John Gacy(Killer Clown).

Ace sound like fake ace.

The last thing Ginn needed to do was race CJ on ocean drive and pull a hammy, trying explaining that to parcells. We were at pool party, had a few drinks and then I challenged the Titians running back to a race but I will be ok soon. Smart move by Ginn.

ALoco why do you think I am fake?

There are only two people on this blog. NJ Phin Fan and Cuban Menace pretending to be different names.

Chonga, tell me then who is Ace?

If you are not NJ Phin Fan you must be Cuban Menace or one of his hired guns in his grand conspiracy with Armando against NJ to get more hits and cause general disarray and hate for NJ Phin Fan.

you fake ace because you mention marc in pink dress and clowns. this is more like cuban menace no real ace.

Chonga what the HE|| are you talking about?
