    Merriman without Roids

    Last Year

    This Year

    Here is the article from PFT:



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    SHAWNE WITHOUT "SUPPLEMENTS" IS CLEARLY A DIFFERENT GUY

    Last week, MDS noted that Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman, who notched 17 sacks in only twelve games a year ago, believes that he's having his best season, even though he has chalked up 5.5 sacks through nine games in 2007.

    On Sunday, Merriman had one tackle and no sacks, so he's stuck at 5.5 through ten games.

    And our own Taco Bill has tracked down some photographic evidence that demonstrates the difference in Merriman of today, and of yesterday.
    Have a look.

    These photos were not altered or doctored in any way by Taco Bill.
    According to ViewImages.com, the top photo was taken on May 5, 2005.
    The bottom photo was snapped on May 30, 2007.
    (To confirm, go to ViewImages.com, search "Shawne Merriman," and compare the head shot on page 7 to the head shot on page 20.)

    Merriman played in only 12 games last season because he was suspended for four games for violation of the league's policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.
    He claimed that a supplement he was taking had been spiked with a steroid, and he made some noise at the time about suing the supplemental manufacturer.
    But, to date, it hasn't happened.

    Much of the "real" media believed Merriman, culminating in the questionable (in our opinion) decision of the NFL to disclose during draft weekend 2007 numbers that Merriman had passed 19 of 20 drug tests imposed by the NFL.

    Look, we're not saying that Merriman intentionally or knowingly took steroids.
    But there's a difference this year in his play, and there's clearly a difference in his appearance.

    I believe it.
    Did you see him get knocked on his azz by a Jacksonville RB on Sunday on the goal line?
    Amazing difference.
    Skol!
    Go Vikings!

    There is a difference, but it is less than those two photos would make it seem.

    The bottom photo is quite a bit smaller in relation to the top photo.
    They could have at least made his head the same size in each photo that way one could get a better feel for the difference.

    If he would have pulled his shoulders back in that lower photo, it wouldn't look that bad.

    That is what I thought first, but then I overlayed the pictures and matched the facial features.... he has lost mass in the neck and shoulders without a doubt...

    Amazing difference.
    Yeah! I saw that. Loved it!! I still think he threw a knee into the pile-up when Jackson got knocked out. I wanna see Merriman get knocked around all year.

    Looks like he's wearing shoulder pads in the first picture. Scary and kind of sad at the same time. Look that unibrow he had before too lol.

    Yup that block got me all kinds of fired up, but remember this he wasn't blocked by a mere mortal, but rather Maurece Jones-Drew!
