Merriman Says He’s Ready For 2009

Charles Robinson, of Yahoo! Sports, reports San Diego Chargers LB Shawne Merriman (knee) said that his best is yet to come, now that he is healthy after missing most of the 2008 season. “People haven’t seen the best of me, not at all,” Merriman said. “In the past, I would tell someone, ‘I’m about to go out and just kill it this year.’ Now I want people to just watch. I had enough doubters around before, and some people felt like I was talking (trash) or just talking too much. My thing is, now I’m just talking about what I’ve done and what I’m doing right now – not about what I’m going to do … I’m going to be me. If anybody thought I was good in the past, well, just wait. Now I’m healthy.”
