    Long changes number...

    I've been following Chris Long on Twitter for awhile now, @CL7TWO. This morning, my time, he tweeted that he would change his number from 72 to 91 which, as you know, he wore in college. Apparently he got Leonard Little's permission. He also changed his twitter account to @CL9ONE.

    Pretty sure it is the real C. Long -

    Just a bit of info you might not have heard.
    Any opinions?
    Personally I am a little bummed, bought his 72 jersey last year ;-)

    Don't know how to copy the tweets or to link to it, but you can find him (and his tweets) on twitter...

    He must have wanted the number when we first drafted him, I prefer 91. Although 72 was a more of a unusual number for a DE and he was making it his own. When I first saw the link, I immediately thought it was going to be 75 like his dad Howie. Good Luck Chris Long, I hope you get a partner in crime for this season from the draft.

    Yeah, I kinda liked the 72, as you mentioned it's a bit unusual - and it looked sweet! :-)

    I love 91. His game will improve tons now! But yes, what a waste of a #72 jersey I purchased 2 months ago.

    Totally the wrong way to look at it, my Rambrother. Your 72 Long jersey will be a symbol of your faith in him from the start (no need to mention that you bought it AFTER his break-out season...lol...). Any bandwagoner can buy a 91 now that he's on his way to being a recognized stud.

    I wasn't too surprised by his decision to change his number, but his next Tweet really shocked me:

    Exactly, in 15 years when he goes into the hall of fame, I'll be there proudly wearing the unique #72.

    Good, I can distinguish the true Rams fans and the bandwagon ones even better.

    I have been wanting to buy a Chris Long jersey since his rookie season, but I never get around to it. I guess it is bitter sweet now.

    I will still forever display my #72 jersey in which I was able to get signed by him after his first home game as a rookie, and I will probably also buy a #91 jersey just because.

    What you see is what you get, but what you see depends on where you stand.

    Yeah, and I can only imagine it would be worth more in 10-15 years, when he hangs up his cleats.

    Will my Adam Archuleta or Tye Hill Jersey qualify me for a true fan???
