Lights Out in NY?

Shawne Merriman highlights (via chargersboltz)


I saw that Merriman has hit the waiver wires and decided to post a poll about your thoughts on whether we should snatch him up if we could.  This is a subject I've written about before so I hope you guys don't mind that I basically re-post the old one (which could be found here for those of you that are curious cats).

Last season was Merriman's worst in his short career so far.  The year prior to that, he blew out his knee and missed the entire season.  The popular consensous is that it usually takes 2 years to recover from such an injury.  It seems like he would be ready to be more like his former self.  With Merriman being only 26, it seems that there might be a good chance he can regain his prior form and once again become an impactful player. 

Basically the question is whether you think his dip in production was caused by injury or whether you believe it was due to no longer being assisted by performance enhancing drugs.  If you think he was bad because of injury, you're probably inclined to take a stab at him.  If you think he was good because of the juice, then you're probably inclined to stay away. 

Here are his sack totals prior to his injury:

2007 -- 12.5 sacks

2006 -- 17 sacks [in only 12 games; also had 4 forced fumbles, 8 passes defensed, and an interception]

2005(rookie) -- 10 sacks
