Merriman said that Brady was his choice because he makes a squeal/moan/grunt noise, and then gives a look at the defender that he shouldn’t have been hit.
Brady and the Patriots knocked Merriman and the Chargers out of the playoffs in the 2006-07 and 2007-08 seasons. Merriman still holds a grudge about the losses but has since also swallowed his pride and bought his son a Brady jersey:

As for the noise Brady makes, when you have six rings, you’re entitled to make whatever sound you want when you get hit.
