    Mike Wright and Rob Ninkovich are both graduates of the Belichick school of talent development. But they both cracked the 53-man roster at a time when the competition at their positions was almost non-existant.

    Carter's path onto the roster is to beat Jermaine Cunningham and Bobby Carpenter for snaps. Not impossible, but it's a tough challenge.

    i hope the kid does well, but if he can't get snaps over Cunningham and Carpenter.....then I won't be waiting for any impact at all from him on Sundays.

    What does Carpenter have to do with the competition at DE/OLB?

    I think the Patriots coaching staff really likes Carter; they gave him a raise and paid him about four times what most practice squad players make. From what I have read about him he has a great attitude.

    I was a bit surprised when Silvestro was brought up to the 53 for the Super Bowl instead of him.

    I'm curious to see what we can get out of him.

    Carpenter is on the roster and projects at the bottom of the depth chart at DE/OLB.

    I see him more in Guyton's role.

    Hm, I disagree. His one big play with Detroit, where he drops into coverage and intercepts for a TD, he was lined up at OLB covering a TE. Looked like a Ninkovich/Vrabel role to me.

    The way I see it...

    DT (5) Vince Wilfork, Kyle Love, Brandon Deaderick, Gerard Warren, Ron Brace
    ILB(4) Jerod Mayo, Brandon Spikes, Dane Fletcher, Tracy White
    DE (4) Jonathan Fanene, Trevor Scott, Chandler Jones, Jake Bequette
    OLB(4) Rob Ninkovich, Donta Hightower, Bobby Carpenter, Jermaine Cunningham

    More importantly is whether he has improved upon his 1.71 10-yard split & 17 reps from a year ago;
    otherwise, slow & weak is no way to go through life as a football player, son.

    Please just decide if we're running a 3-4 or a 4-3, you don't need to mix.
