    MERRIMAN PICTURE CREATING A BUZZ
    We had a feeling when we posted the before/after shots of Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman earlier today that we'd get some reaction.
    Thus far, the reaction has been overwhelming.
    Several readers initially insisted that Merriman is wearing his shoulder pads in the photo on the top, from May 2005. He isn't.
    Said one of the readers in response to our representation that Merriman isn't wearing pads: "Holy crap!"
    A league source offered up the identical reaction, and one prominent member of the media called the photo comparison "maybe the most jaw-dropping thing I've seen on your site."
    And as MDS pointed out in a FanHouse posting on Monday, the "after" version of Merriman was blowed up by pint-sized Maurice Jones-Drew on Sunday in Jacksonville.
    The "before" version of Merriman had an encounter with Chiefs running back Priest Holmes in 2005, and Holmes just returned to the field a couple of weeks ago.
    Again, we're not saying that Merriman intentionally or knowingly took steroids or any other banned substance. But the photos are what they are.
    UPDATE: We've since found the 2006 preseason headshot, and we've pasted the three of them together.

    his neck gets progressively thinner. In addition to looking more swole, he also looks more angry in the 1st picture (roid rage?)

    Forget the roids.

    How do you explain why Merriman has such a cone head in the middle picture?

    Something ain't right.:specnatz:

    I think he might have had a mohawk, either way, guy isn't playing as good without his medicine.

    it looks like he's making the always-funny fat-guy-with-several-chins face in the first pic.

    Apparently the first picture is his head on Jamal Whatsisface's body since Merriman was sitting out because of the injury agreement or whatever.

    I loved it !
    I don't care if Maurice D-J plays for the Jags, I gave him a Pro-Bowl vote
    because he's very talented & derserving. And he can pop you - just ask SM.
    D-J is a heckava running back & football player who got overlooked because
    he didn't get the pub others did in college and now he's in a very small NFL market and probably won't get the deserved recognition there either. That's what happened to Fred Taylor with the Jags, and he's one of the best backs in the league in the last 10 years.
