    this is a question more than a statement

    Heard a caller praise Coach Kentera yesterday for being the first (or only one) to "report" that Merriman's knee wasn't doing to well

    anybody else hear something about this?

    I don't think I can believe anything that's published about Merriman for the next 12 months. :no:

    There is going to be an avalanche of posturing on both sides as Merriman's camp tries to convince the league that he's fine and as the bolts try to convince the league he's damaged goods.

    Gonna be a long year. :lol:

    Absolutely every other source has him doing great.

    So while this may be true, in the present case until I see something specific from a reputable source, I'll assume Shawne is doing fine.

    My wife ran into him a little over a week ago at Mailboxes etc and asked him how his knee is. She told me that he just smiled and said just wait till September and she'll see. Also she noticed he wasn't limping or anything for whatever that's worth. I realize he wasn't running around or anything, I just wanted to mention that she met him because I think that's cool as hell! :lol:

    I haven't heard anything about his knee being wrong - he did alot of interviews with 1360 and always said he was great

    All the report and interviews he's had have him saying that he is almost recovered.

    I'd be surprised if there were problems with his knee and we hadn't heard about it yet. Shawne is fairly high-profile and while his "Knee Watch" isn't quite at the level of Tom Brady - I'm sure PFT or someone would have said something by now if there was a rumor going around hehe.

    I've only heard good things so hopefully that's all true.

    Truer words could hardly be spoken. :lol:

    Shawne wants to get paid. He's going to perform to the highest level that he can. He's hungry.

    Posturing? Sure. Slacking? I don't see it.

    The swagger is back. Grab an upgrade for DT/DE & safety. New D. Rivera can't WAIT to get his hands on a healthy Shawne Merriman. :icon_banana:

    I think we should ask opposing OTs what they think of Merriman's health after the season starts. Merriman is going to have a tremendous year. If he's healthy, he'll be in the top 3 for defensive player of the year. Dude is going to break the bank.

    last year of contract means max performance - he played a lot of games including all playoffs year before last so all cut him some slack, I expect him to be healthiere as the season goes and we sign up Rivers and wait on shawne if he's anwhre near his past it's franchise tag time
