    Last week, defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said he was surprised by linebacker Bruce Carter’s sudden ascension.

    Monday, Carter said, me too.

    “Yeah, I think so,” he said. “Me being able to learn the defense and adapt as fast as I did – I mean, I think for me, my huge thing was just learning the playbook, and then once I learned that, it slowed everything down for me and then I was able to just play. Now I just basically line up, run to the ball, ball here, pads drop, just play football, basically.”

    He was already a starter when the season began, after missing much of last season recovering from a knee injury suffered in college. But now the second-year player is thriving with the extra work.

    “It’s been different,” he said of the change from last year to this year. “I didn’t play nearly as much as I do now. I’m just trying to take everything in stride, learn as much as I can. I still talk to Sean about things I don’t know, and ’Flus and Rob and everybody. So, I mean, I’m still learning. A lot of my game is ahead of me, and I’m still learning every day.”

    Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce Carter is a "special talent"... I put him in the D-Ware category with the physical gifts and the smarts.
