Merriweather

Postby aswas71788 » Sun Sep 15, 2013 8:06 pm

Is there anyone else who sees Merriweather as a lost cause? He has played in exactly 3 games in two years. Now he is out again. Is he really worth keeping? I see him make some plays but he is not a dominant force out there.

He was also head-hunting. I hate to say this as a Redskin fan but it was a bit of karmic justice when he administered his 2nd helmet-to-helmet of the quarter and ended up wobbling off.

He could be so good without that element. ;furious;

Mr Glass (Samual L Jackson character from the movie Unbreakable) has nothing on B. Merriweather.

The dude is way too fragile to play in the NFL. Serves him right for leading with his helmet.

He will get a nice hefty fine to go with his concussion. Although the GB RB was just as responsible for the hit that lais Merriweather out. He lowered his head and initiated head to head as much as Brandon did.

Actually, he's only played two games (and really just part of two games). At least it wasn't his knee.

I think the Packers' fans cheered when Merriweather went down.

I guess because he knocked Lacy out of the game.

The guy is remarkable ... He always finds a new way to get hurt.

I think this one will cost him though ...

He launched and lead with the crown of his helmet TWICE, causing two concussions.

The fact that he suffered one of them will not matter to Mara and the boys because he did it wear B&G.

I really don't know if Merriweather is good or not. Its just painful that we've pinned so many hopes on him, because he hasn't done JACK here.

Merriweather is a lost cause. What a waste of a roster spot. Leading with the helmet when you're described as "soft" is not the most intelligent thing to do. Karma's a beyotch.

No I was at the game....They cheered him when he walked off the field under his own power.

Green Bay has some of the most respectable fans in the league for I didn't have ONE fan talk inappropriate smack. Most of them at the worst asked me if I wanted to switch teams. All the fans around me were asking questions about the skins and were just nice and respectable drunk fans.

Merriwhether showed he can still make plays. Just need him to stay healthy. He is not the problem.

His inability to stay on the field is the problem...

Merriweather isn't the problem. Its a few other bums on that defense.

Yes exactly. I hope he can stay healthy because we really need him on the field.

He needs to stop being a dirty player. Leading with the crown of his helmet means he is intentionally trying to hurt someone. I have no respect for someone like that.
