    So let's say we settle for 60 seconds with San Diego linebacker Shawne Merriman, last year's Defensive Rookie of the Year. The man's gregarious. He's candid. And he's a damn good football player.

    The only mystery to Merriman is how he failed to win the AFC's defensive player of the week award after shredding the Raiders for 3 sacks Monday.

    <strong>Q:</strong> What's with the extra E in your first name?

    <strong>Merriman:</strong> I just like to be different, and my Mom liked to be different.

    <strong>Q:</strong> If you couldn't vote for yourself, who would you have pushed as last year's Defensive Rookie of the Year?
    Merriman:</strong> Lofa Tatupu.</blockquote>
