    Is he actually blaming anyone for his lack of sacks, or even complaining? It seems like the media's twisted his words, given the quote they've got from him.

    It seems like more of him explaining why he hasn't made as many sacks. I think they'll come with time to be honest.

    That's more like frustration then actual blaming or anger

    and I do agree that he should be sent on blitzes alot more often BUT its also obvious he isn't getting to the QB much when he is sent

    Bullshit. Perfect example of the media twisting the context around. Here is the full article from the SDUT:

    Yup, it's the media interpreting his statements however they want for an article.

    Although, some stat monkeys will see the boxscore and stat sheet from the Houston game without having actually watched it and think Merriman didn't do much in the game.

    However, those who actually watched the game know that his name was called after the play at least a half-dozen times and he was a major factor in about twelve plays, as well as being a half-step away from a sack a handful of times.

    Unfortunately, most of that doesn't translate to a "boxscore" or stat sheet, so the uninformed will simply think "What's wrong with Merriman?"

    The media totally missed the point of what Merriman said. It does not appear that he was complaining or unhappy. He is simply adapting to the new scheme and been productive on his new assignments.


    As he said, if you must rush the QB you become one dimensional.


    Imagine how effective Merriman will be on D if he covered as good as he rushed? QB would never know if he was coming or going.:abq2:

    Must have been a ProFootballTalk.com radio show or something. Come on Harley... there's no grassy knoll shiit going on. TC just likes his LBs to be well-rounded. Merriman will get his coin and his new contract when the time comes.

    The very last thing we want is for a guy like Merriman to demand more money or leave.

    Man I sure am glad we Chargers fans actually bother to read the MF'n articles! There is nothing in that article that suggests he's frustrated with the scheme, NOTHING! All it says is that he's going all out every snap. And even if he's not getting to the QB he's having a huge impact on the game. F yahoo sports.

    That's why the UT sucks balls and I can't be bothered to read it ever.

    This Sunday would be the perfect time, since the receivers are badly reduced.
