    Carpenter #52

    For anyone that cares, Carpenter will be wearing #52 this year, according to Rams roster.

    I think he could be a pleasant surprise. He was a 1st round pick, and moved around a lot in a 3-4 D, not given much oppertunity to shine in his natural position.

    I for one will be keeping a close eye on this kid, i rather like him.

    Re: Carpenter #52

    I'm looking at him as an added draft pick. He is similar to one, since he will be a little raw in Spags' scheme, but he has the benefit of a seeing the speed of the NFL game.

    This staff needs to get him to play "mean". He's a great athletic specimen for a LB, they just need to get him to pull a "Bobby Boucher" and tap into his rage.

    I can just picture Jerry Jones' face superimposed over his opponents faces, "Whatsa matter with you Barbie are you s- s- s- stupid!?"

    ***********RUMOR************

    The word is that Carpenter is so happy to be out of Dallas and even happier to be in St. Louis that he's thinking of changing his last name to:

    Cinco-2

    I doubt anyone can teach him to play "meaner". You either have that aggressive mentality or you don't.

    But, I hope that our coaching staff can definitely teach him to be a more technically sound run stopper and tackler.


    But, who knows, maybe he will be more aggressive here. Why? Because he just got a change of scenery, wants to start new, and he wants to prove that he is a new player, and wants to live up to his draft status.

    He has to bring the thunder first, something he's failed to do since entering the league.

    Barbie will turn into Barb the Barbarian now that he'll be playing in a 4-3 D.

    Hmmm...Conan the Carpenter? I kinda like that. If he doesn't make it as a 4-3 OLB he can always become the governor of California.
