Chargers Training Camp Interview: Shawne Merriman

How anxious are you to get started?
I'm very anxious.  To be away from the game as long as I was....that anxiousness is just building up. 

Are you looking forward to playing under Coach Rivera and in his scheme?
Yeah.  I'm just happy to be back, but especially in a system where we like to attack.  That's kindof the theme of our team and our defense this year. 

Do you have any specific goals in mind for yourself this year or just team goals?
It's all team goals.  I know how I'm going to do as an individual, but the goals I set this year are more related to the team's success.

I've been talking with Chargers fans all day on Twitter and somebody told me to ask you if your TwitterBerry has gone "lights out".
(laughs) My TwitterBerry is definitely "lights out" right now.  It sends when it wants to and then other times it doesn't work.  Then it works, then it doesn't work.  These last two days is like the longest time I've not Tweeted. 

You gotta get an iPhone.
I don't know, man.  I don't know if it's the phone or what, but it's like....whew, I gotta get something done.

What's your favorite tattoo that you have and why?
My "Lights Out" tattoo, because that's what I got my name from and that's part of me.
