Shawne Merriman


Recommended Posts

with the impact shawne merriman has had on the chargers do you still think going with carlos rodgers wa a good pick,

Yes, because with the style we have here the corner needs to be able to excel in coverage on an island. We dont run the 3-4, so he would only be a under sized D-end here. He would probably grow frustrated because our system requires that you stay very honest to the run.

So when we would have picked him on draft day, who would he have replaced? LaVar or Washington? prior to the season you expected our OLBs to be studs and they are still fairly young, so drafting him then wouldn't have made much sense.

obviously, hindsight is 20/20 but still he'd be splitting time with Lavar (when he's not hurt) at best right now

I would not have taken Carlos Rogers with the 9th pick but I certainly understood it and really can't argue with the pick.

I, like many here, wanted Mike Williams. Yes, he has struggled in Detroit, but I think he would have definitely done better as a Skin.

Merriman was another guy I would loved to have had at #9 but would he have had the same kind of year and impact in Williams' defense? It's hard to say.

The bottom line is that we got a guy who has started as a rookie and played pretty well so that's good enough for me.
