This is Case In Point as to why we can't immediately claim that guys like Aldon Smith and Jason Pierre Paul are elite DEs just yet. Just because you have a great year or two in your first few years in the league (one great year with JPP and one year and a half for Aldon Smith) does NOT mean that you will go on to be a great player for your entire career.

After the first three years of their career after being drafted in the 2005 draft, Shawne Merriman looked like a Hall of Famer while DeMarcus Ware looked merely like a good player. Eight years later, Ware is a lock for the Hall of Fame and Merriman hasn't done anything since 2007.

He played 1 game so he could be guaranteed the contract for the year.

He became to hollywood after all the success. The CHEAPSHOT titans ruined his career

More like 2 years. People forget that it was before the 2006 season when he tested positive. He then tore it up in 2006 before he got suspended and afterwards until the Titans cheapshotted him and ended his career. It didn't help that he tried to forgo surgery.

I don't really hold the roids against him honestly. Half the league is juicing.

I'll bet my house that Mario Williams is a juicer. Balding, girly voice, brittle. He's an obvious juicer.

There's tons of juicers in the NFL. Merriman just got caught.

Hey man, do you have to attack the 1 marquee FA signing that Buffalo has had in over a decade.

Merriman was so humiliated about what happened that he basically took out his anger on Willis Mcgahee the following week.

True, but I happen to think Merriman has been taking illegal PEDs since before he entered UMD.

If the NFL was truly opposed to PEDs in the game, they'd have random blood testing year round for every single player.
But the owners are too greedy to ever do that because the testing protocol for almost 1800 athletes is 'too expensive'.

Any players career can be derailed by injuries. That goes for Demarcus Ware as well.

So basically from that trade, Rivers and Kaeding are the only guys left? Everyone else is gone or retired?

Kaeding is very close to being out of the league.
Is he still with the Chargers? So basically only guy left is just Rivers? Wow years later, that deal really changed in terms of getting return on ones investment.

Nope, he got cut by the Chargers late october. Got picked up by the Dolphins late december and made 1 of 3 FG attempts for Miami. And yeah, time sure does change a lot.

So basically Rivers is the only guy left. Except for individual accolades like pro bowls and all pros, they really didn't get a great return on their investments. One can make the case that AJ Smith after that drove that franchise down. I am sure being difficult to work with is another aspect which made things worse.

I'm just amazed at how far Rivers has fallen. He was never as good as his #s indicated, but he's not as bad as his current #s indicate as well.

But this is a make or break year for him. If he puts together 3 terrible years in a row, you have to question his ability. I'm giving him 1 more year to turn it around.

I'm a Rivers fan, I think he's a very good qb. So I have faith he'll become good again, but I can't figure him out right now. His fall from grace is a little puzzling.
