"I know he is the answer," Nix said in May. "All he's got to do is get well."
That's obviously a pretty big 'if,' and ESPN scout Matt Williamson, for one, is skeptical that it'll happen. In a recent SportsNation chat, Williamson admitted that it was possible for Merriman to return to form, but isn't expecting it to happen. (On a side note, Williamson is, however, high on second-year rusher Arthur Moats.)
"Could happen, but I don't expect it at all," wrote Williamson. "What has he done besides get injured since returning from his suspension? I think Merriman is done."
Our question for you today, in the form of the below poll: are you closer to siding with Nix, or are you more in agreement with Williamson?
