Yes, that is Ginn. For all of his faults he hauled ass down the field and
made the play that should have atoned for his prior blunder. I know Sharper
had to juke some guys but that was an example of how fast Ginn can be.

> 1) Wow, that was well before crossing the goal line. I'm guessing that the
falling ball was kicked back up by his thighs, keeping the ball in the area of
his hands before flying forward -- thus obscuring when and where the ball was
fumbled in real time.
> 2) There are five Dolphins right around him.
> 3) The guy making the strip is Ted Ginn. Right?

> I think most of us knew this already, but this week's issue of SI includes a
photo in it's Leading Off section (best photos of the week) and it shows
conclusively that Sharper did indeed fumble before scoring.
> At the risk of copyright infringement and the wrath of YFLT, I attached the
photo to this message. Apologies if that is a breach of list protocol. But SI
has yet to post the picture on it's web site and I wanted you guys to see it.
I found this week's Leading Off photos online but this picture was omitted
from the collection.
> Ironically the shot includes the ref, who had the best angle possible to
make the proper call.
> We'll never know but I feel like the Phins would have had a great shot at
winning this game if not for this bad call along with the one at the end of
the first half. Somehow I take comfort in knowing that the Phins, while losing
games to the Saints and Colts, had a chance to win against two of the league's
best teams. Well, maybe not comfort but at least hope for the future.
