    <p class="textBodyBlack"><span id="byLine" />The Steelers' offensive line must try to contain 270-pound San Diego Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman, a disruptive big hitter whose game is similar to that of Baltimore's Ray Lewis.</p>
    <p class="textBodyBlack"><span id="byLine" />Merriman's size is similar to that of former Steelers Pro Bowl linebacker Levon Kirkland, but he moves exceptionally well and might be the NFL's most formidable hitter. His nickname is "Lights Out" because he likes to keep track of players he sends to the sidelines with tackles.</p>
