Ginn, Wilson offer Monday night mea culpas

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

Wednesday was a day of atonement for the Miami Dolphins.

Wide receiver Ted Ginn and safety Gibril Wilson admitted their shortcomings in Monday night's 27-23 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Land Shark Stadium.

Because players have Tuesdays off, reporters had their first opportunity Wednesday to question players after the benefit of film review and some lectures from the coaching staff.

Ginn on failing to make what would have been a game-winning 42-yard catch in the end zone (per the Miami Herald):

"I should have come down with the catch. Point blank. Point blank. He made a great play. I'm not going to say this or say that. I just got to come down with the catch."

Ginn on defensive back Jacob Lacey, who many Dolfans think interfered (per the South Florida Sun-Sentinel):

"Guy made a good play on the ball, but I should have come down with it. You're trying to be a big-time player, you've got to come down with that type of catch. Just something you'll always look back on and always strive to be better."

Wilson on his missed tackles that led to big gainers for Indy (per the Miami Herald):

"My Pop Warner coach called me after the game. When your Pop Warner coach calls you, you know you didn't tackle well."
