Dude, I have no idea why are you bringing Ray Lewis into this or what your problem is. The guy was deemed a cheater by the league and suspended 4 games for it. That means he was cheating during the first part of the season and thus his season is in question. He should not be considered for any honors or awards.
PS - I don't think it's "obvious" Merriman was juiced. I actually think the opposite...it seems obvious to me he wasn't, in the same way it seems obvious Ray Lewis didn't murder anyone.
