    I was unable to see the game and wanted some thoughts on his play on Sunday? Was he in much, etc. ?

    Thanks

    He was manned up on Cooley and he caried him into the endzone.

    I mean it sucked but Cooley is a tighend

    I'm fine with Merriweather getting humbled. It seems like that's what he needs at this point.

    But it was a TE.

    Disable Jersey

    Merry is not geting much PT. Wilson out and Sanders in. Baker played safety more than Merry.
    Yah, I know, SS vs FS but Mr Versitile is standing on the sidelines a lot even in blowouts.

    It was a noble effort.
    I'm looking forward to seeing him mature as a player.
    He's going to be a good one.

    It was bad technique. He tackled the TE high, thus got carried in the EZ.

    Guy's a rookie in a BB defense, I have no expectations for this year but I'm sure he'll turn out into a good player give some time.

    I'd have to see it again, but sometimes you have to grab what you can.

    He's a big boy, that Coolie.

    Meriweather had a shot at destroying Cooley across middle on an overthrow on 1 play but he held back..shoulda lit him up. On the play that Cooley dragged him..he was point blank not even in a sprint so its tough for a 195 pounder to tackle a 250 guy from that close when Cooley had some momentum

    During that play, I thought to myself that Randall Gay would have gotten Cooley to the ground. Meriweather should take it as a lesson-- they're bigger and stronger in the pros, kid.
