Merriman to play in 2008
Much to the dismay of Quarterbacks around the league, it looks like the beast will play this season despite having no knee:
He'll be roundly criticized for this decision, but I'm ok with it so far. Say it takes 4 or 5 months of rehab after the surgery. Even if he hurts it at some point this season and then has to have it rebuilt, he'll still have time to heal up for next season. Might as well squeeze whatever juice is left out of it first. That way, teams have to game plan for both him and Tucker, depending on the wobbliness of the wheel. Plus, he'll be suited up and able to do his pre-game center of the huddle dance-yell-chant thing that's always on TV. It also gives some credence to the idea that there is real belief within the players' minds that big things could be happening this year.
I'll skip the play on "Lights Back On" or whatever, and just say, GO CHARGERS!!! Bring on the season!!
