    I just hope he went to see Drew Brees' doctor. I mean if Drew can light up the NFC like that on a NUKED shoulder, imagine what Merriman can do!:tup:

    Lights still out
    Linebacker Shawne Merriman is working out seven weeks after an arthroscopic procedure to repair his labrum. But he still feels weakness in the surgically repaired left shoulder and will not be full-go at this weekend's minicamp.
    [​IMG] Merriman said he does expect to be 100 percent shortly. [​IMG]

    “I'll do all the drills I'm allowed to do,” he said. “I'm not sitting out until somebody forces me to sit out.”

    I certainly hope it's not his non-steroid shoulder! :abq1:

    There you have it. Ant has proclaimed Merriman's shoulder NUked, and said he has a noodle arm.

    Paraphrasing...:icon_rofl:

    Merriman would've healed faster last year.

    The guy's less than two months removed from shoulder surgery. He's got four months before the season starts. He'll be fine.

    If Brees used his shoulder like Merriman, every fuggin rubber band and piece of chewing gum holding his **** together would snap. Just like Saddamn Hussein's neck.....kerrr-pop. :yes:

    I would take a "Nuked" shoulder like Brees has. Man broke records with it! :tup:

    It pisses me off that he's only 2 months out from shoulder surgery. He should have skipped the damn pro bowl and had the surgery after the playoff game that Marty F*CKED up. In fact, SM's shoulder injury is probably Marty's fault also, the F'er.

    :unsure: Backwards is the wrong way to focus ones attention.

    Must be torture for a workout freak like Merriman. This guy lives and beathes in the weight room and I just hope he's not getting impatient and stressing his shoulder more than he ought to.

    I have rehabbed a shoulder more than once. That kind of weakness is normal in post op recovery. The muscles ARE weaker, but once you heal the workouts bring it fast enough.

    And face it, if his shoulder is 90% he is still stronger than most LBs!
