After etching his name in the fraternity of draft busts, many questioned whether Ted Ginn Jr., who was selected 9th overall by the Miami Dolphins in 2007, could play in the NFL.Sunday, he'll be playing in the Super Bowl with the San Francisco 49ers. Well, maybe not playing. But he'll be there. “I knew one day that I was going to be here,” Ginn told Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post Thursday.Ginn, who was drafted to be the team's eventual No. 1 receiver for years to come, caught just five touchdowns in three years with Miami. The speedster did find the end zone three times on returns during that span, but that didn't do anything for his stock as a wideout.To add perspective, Volin points out that three of today's star players -- 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis (11th overall), Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (12th) and Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis (14th) -- were taken over the five picks after Ginn.The now-27 year old was traded to the 49ers in 2010 for a fif...

Why Randy Moss is better than Jerry Rice

  Amidst the unusual calm during the media frenzy the precedes the Super Bowl, one star dared to go against the “loose lips sink ships” mentality of his head coach and spoke what was really on his mind.  San Francisco 49ers WR Randy Moss told the media that he thinks he’s the best receiver all-time. According to Moss, “I really think I’m the greatest receiver to ever...

Ravens or 49ers, who wins the Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is here with the Ravens and 49ers facing off.  There are a lot of story lines in the game with the Harbaugh brothers facing off, Ray Lewis' last game and Colin Kaepernick's offensive gameplay.  The NFL is loving all this press.  Here's a last look at the game. These two teams are built with similar styles.  Both want to run the ball and...

Colin Kaepernick will get free Red Robin for life if he wins Super Bowl

After a rather peculiar offer, if Colin Kaepernick wins the Super Bowl on Sunday, he will receive free Red Robin for the rest of his life (Credit: AP Photo) For some, the best part of the week prior to the Super Bowl is all of the questions players are asked by the media. Last week, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was asked by a financial adviser from New York where...

Colin Kaepernick’s Total Passing Yards, Ray Lewis’ Total Tackles Lead Prop Bets Heading into Super Bowl XLVII (Photos)

With the circus of media day finally coming to a close, it’s time to get down to the truly important aspects of the Super Bowl — the bets. Betting on whether Colin Kaepernick can lead the 49ers to their first Super Bowl win since 1994 or if Ray Lewis will finish his career on top isn’t nearly as satisfying as guessing correctly how many total rushing yards Ray Rice will...

Seahawks punter Jon Ryan wants NFL to suspend Chris Culliver

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver has not made many friends during the week leading up to the Super Bowl. On Tuesday, Culliver made some extremely homophobic remarks that have led to an apology from him and somewhat of a public reprimand from the team. Seattle Seahawks punter Jon Ryan feels as though that is not nearly enough. Ryan tweeted on Thursday night that he believes...

Super Bowl Gameplan: 49ers Offense

Before trying to establish their ground game, the 49ers will face the key issue of how to deal with an excitable young quarterback guiding their offense. Colin Kaepernick is hoping to become the third player to win a Super Bowl in his second season in the NFL after Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger did so in Super Bowls 36 and 40. Their teams took different approaches in each game...

Holler: Even Moss ‘apologist’ disagrees

Keys to Ravens game plan against 49ers...

In simplest terms: the Ravens need to keep the "Smith Brothers" off Joe Flacco, and they need to beat up the 49ers (especially Kaepernick and his O-Line) on defense. But of course it's never as simple as that. An estimated $10 billion is projected to be bet on Super Bowl XLVII worldwide, and over half of all adult Americans are expected to bet on the game in...
