    I totally agree with the selection of Jason Taylor as the Defensive Player of the Year. I would love to see him in a Patriot uni someday.;)

    But Merriman is in denial, IMO. The fact that he was suspended for testing positive for steroids in the middle of the season was a factor in the votes, IMHO. I'm still a little surprised and annoyed that he was selected for the probowl. He cheated, but I don't think that Merriman sees it that way.

    LMAO. This guy ought to be less concerned with steroids and Defensive Player of the Year and more concerned with rings.

    If he just said "I did it, I'm sorry. I did my time and I want to get past this" then I would have a lot more respect for him than when says BS things like "I didn't know I was taking illegal substances."

    A lot of people, including Merriman, fail to realize that Merriman's body is still performing under the influence of steriods. Although he may now be clean, once you take steriods it never leaves you. His muscle mass, strength, etc. were all results of steriod usage. He cheated the system and should never be recognized as anything special. Look at Barry Bonds. The guy was using steriods and now he's off of it, has his head shrunk (The steriod he was using is hard to detect, but increases the size of the users head)? Nope! ... cheater in my books.

    Someone should tell Merriman where to go.

    The league should instill stiffer punishment to steriod users. They will always have an advantage over the rest of the field even when they are clean. Players like R.Williams should continue to be dealt with in the current league substance abuse structure. Weed doesn't enhance performance, but it does set a bad example to the young crowd watching the game.

    Didn't Merriman gain like 20 pounds in between the end of his senior season and the combine?

    Another reason he shouldn't be in the probowl (not that the probowl actually means something). The guy cheats, and wants to be player of the year---jeez what a moron. Enjoy martyball Merriman:singing:

    Between the combine and his Pro Day, if I'm not mistaken. So it was actually over the course of a month and a half or so rather than three or so months. He went from 250 to 270. Yeah, guys that size can put on 20 lbs. of muscle like it's nothing. Right.
