I surprised no one wrote about this yet, but Bolt linebacker and roid head Shawne Merriman has opted not to get a season-shortening (or ending) surgery or a torn posterior cruciate ligament on his left knee.
This news has to bode well for the AFC west that Merriman, who registered 12.5 sacks last year is playing with a bum wheel. According to the story, playing with the injury can potentially be career-threatening. I don't wish ill will to the man, but engaging in professional sports, particularly one as violent as football, is a death wish to a career. If he does get injured, I won't feel the least bit bad because he will reap what he has sown.
Sufficed to say, with the problems that plague our line along with the season-ending injury dealt to Oren O'Neil, I'm glad that Merriman's retard strength is at least hampered for the season.
