Chargers' Merriman will forgo surgery, play with knee injury
 
This just seems like dumb decision to me, is it worth risking your career over?

It is a dumb decision. He's risking his entire career AMA. Norv should just put him on IR. Force him to sit.

Sounds nuts. Plus, can he really play well with this injury, putting aside the career issues?

He's an idiot. There are times to think about me-first, and risking season/career-ending injuries is one of those times. The Chargers aren't going to take care of him when he's no longer useful.

Didnt he play last year with this injury? I thought I read the doctors couldnt believe he had been playing for so long with the injury?

wow what an idiot. all doctors tell him to have surgery and he doesn't, will be sad to see him end his career so young if it does happen

What a dumb@ss. Maybe he'll just take a bunch or Roids and be okay.

I concur. The coach should place him on PUP or IR.

Can't quite understand this decision

He will tweek it after a couple weeks then get the surgery...he won't last the season...being a Terp fan I hope this doesn't end his career

What an idiot! Hope he doesn't slip on a banana.

Seriously, why are they Chargers even allowing him to play? Their GM should be fired.

Might just be a fry or two short of a happy meal! Not a very wise decision.

If he was thinking about his future and prolonging his career in this league, it would only seem logical to have the repair work done now. Instead of taking the chance of further damage.

But, it's his body and everyone has choices to make....carry on!

he is going to regret this decision later. impact linebackers with bum knees....not a good combination....i am curious he saw 4 doctors....i guess the last one gave him the green light. Did he keep seeking opinions until he got the one he wanted? Wow....now this is neccessary...what a MORON!

Re: Chargers' Merriman will forgo surgery, play with knee injury
 
Apparently, all 4 doctors told him he needs to have the surgery. I think he will regret this decision, especially if he blows out his knee in the first few games. If I was Merriman, I'd get the surgery and come back bigger, faster, and stronger next year.
