    Merriman got #7, but I think he should be high up the list. Shawn Phillips should also be in the top 10.

    I can see why Shaun Phillips wasn't in the top 10, but why wasn't he one of the others mentioned? One of the most underrated defenders in the league.

    Since when do we get fair consideration out of ESPN. Phillips definitely should be mentioned. I suspect that more Chargers will crack these top 10 lists after this season.

    This season we will witness the greatest Defense in our history, what a ****** blow regarding the steroid plug, nice insinuation to the dropoff of production.

    'tis a travesty. That guy is honestly one of the most underrated players on the team if not the league. The Other Guy is clutch as hell, never gets offsides or other dumb penalties, is probably the best pass rusher on the team, can play the run, and even though he may run his mouth, he isn't a headcase or a DUI waiting to happen (cough Jared Allen cough).

    By the way, from the Indy playoff game on nfl.com, at the 2:04 mark in the lower right corner, watch Shaun straight up destroy Dallas Clark on Cromartie's beautiful INT return w/ bullshit Weddle penalty.

    Can you imagine what he would be called if he and Shawne were white?
    "The Other White......?"
