    Conc's impression of Mini Camp 5/5/07


    Yeah I was a Bolts fan before i went to SDSU, but my best friend Lumpy's dad had season tix, and was working on a bridge somewhere for two years so I got to go to a couple games a year and became addicted. if folks are looking for a cheap way to do the gameday experience preseason is the way. can score those tix real cheap. oddly enough you'll see me at both preseason games and at least houston for sure.:icon_rofl:

    Mini Camp Review - 4/5/2007

    That's my point. He's able to bench 225 25 times and he's still not fully recovered.

    This wasn't some major shoulder surgery Merriman had. It was a scope. He'll be fine. As far as him looking alot smaller, I think that's just people seeing what they think they will see. Shawne still looks like a big mofo to me.

    BTW, the same fishwrap that mentioned the weakness in his shoulder also mentioned him benching 225 25 times.

    Benefit of the doubt as long as he performs on the field and doesn't test positive again.

    I don't hear any reports about Merriman losing weight, so to me it's not a concern.

    I don't thnk we are disagreeing, just looking at two different aspects of the same issue. Merriman evidently has a lot of strength back, but being off for so long he still could have lost some mass which he hasn't made back yet. (I also agree he looks pretty big to me).

    I think the worries people have of him being smaller this year will be laid to rest once training camp roles around and the surgery is a distant memory.

    Considering how often people see him out of pads, it's ridiculous to speculate that he is smaller based on a picture you saw on your computer.

    :tdown:

    Hopefully we don't have to listen to that line of thinking on the podcast.

    So....this thread is like virtual masturbation for you? :huh:

    I knew a lot of these threads were self-promoting and masturbatory, but I had no idea you were slowly going blind. :icon_tease:

    ZACTLY

    I saw him up close at minicamp. He looked just as big. Infact when ever he came up to the sled, the coach on the sled jumped off before Merrimand hit it and nearly turned it over. It wasnt a dainty get off, he was jumping for his life.

    Merriman will be fine, he isnt a small guy now, and he isnt frail. HE WILL BE FINE! I hav seen him up close with my own eyes.

    Exactly. All these Internet drama queens want to speculate about something salacious. I could understand if Merriman looked like a deflated balloon, like Giambi a few years ago, but he looks pretty much the same size to me.

    Maybe he is still juicing, but is doing a better job of masking before the drug tests.

    Remember, last year was his first offseason in the NFL. What worked in collegs doesn't always work at the next level.

    Mini Camp Review - 4/5/2007

    Geez, give me a break! He had one positive test out of 20. Even if he happened to drop to 260, which I doubt, he'd lose no strength and become more more capable in dropping off into pass coverage in zone blitzes. Personally, if he has dropped a few pounds and gotten a half step faster, I'd be scared sh*&less if I was on the other side of the ball.

    :frightened:

    Look at the header at the top of the page. Merriman looks the same. He isnt smaller. Edit: IMO.

    I don't care if Merriman is juicing, just as long as he never gets caught again. :yes:
