    So Merriman on the juice = Monster of Epic Proportions!

    Merriman off the juice = Weak knee'd invalid!

    Poor dude cannot stay healthy. Could have been a HoF'er. Could have been one of the best. We used to talk about him in the same breath as Lawrence Taylor. Now he is far closer to A Flock of Seagulls (See: 1 hit wonders).

    Feel bad for the dude. USFL here he comes.

    Can't say I am surprised. I wonder if he is completely done now.

    Probably done; spirit willing but body can't hold up

    I just feel sorry for him more than anything

    I think you're being too harsh...... I can think of a couple hits by A Flock of Seagulls. ;)

    Whether it was roids or his refusal to get surgery, that hit ended his career. I still can't believe that he didn't get surgery.

    He probably regrets that the hit didn't come sooner, allowing him to get into the next round...
