    SAN DIEGO -- Chargers defensive end Igor Olshansky eyes linebacker Shawne Merriman and sees himself.

    "He was kind of like me when I came into the league,'' said Olshansky, a foreigner to football until high school. "I was raw and powerful. Shawne didn't really use his technique last year."

    Better put, the one Merriman utilized consisted of smacking a blocker in the mouth and racing past him.</blockquote>
