For those interested in how Carpenter is doing, just took following paragraph off bloggingtheboys.com website by grizz. According to grizz.. On another board, before this game, I was asked about Bobby Carpenter. The short answer was that he needs more strength because he can't take on and get rid of blockers and he also needs to use leverage and explode into blockers instead of standing up high and receiving the blocker. In this game, he looked a little better against the run. He was taking it to the blocker more and using his leverage to push him back, and he worked his way off a block for a nice tackle. His one bad play was on the direct snap to Tiki where he got sealed inside and Tiki had that whole side of the field wide open. But overall, he looked better against the run because he was more aggressive in taking on the blocks. sago1 followup comment: Some are already labeling Carpenter a bust, but this analysis would seem to indicate that participation in our offseason weight conditioning program would help Carpenter out a lot. Leverage is also something which can be learned and this kid is smart enough to pick that up. While most naturally expect a first rounder to produce right away, seems to me that he will be another one of our guys who produce much more in his second year which is exactly what Burnett is doing and a year before Bradie James did. We've got a very young team and, while Parcells certainly sees this team as having high potential, it's my realistic opinion (but what do I know) that next year is when we really come into our own and win the SB. Not saying we couldn't do it this year, but just think we still have a few weaknesses which need to straightened out.
