The very-maligned Bobby Carpenter started and is playing a ton in another preseason game. Is he setting a record for minutes played in the preseason by an NFL player? Carpenter is making plays tonight and he's talking with veteran Zach Thomas on the sidelines between series. If anybody could figure out what's going on out there it's definitely Zach.
Here's the problem. Bobby's making plays against backup players, but, I guess, at least he's making them. Carpenter couldn't do it last year and Wade Phillips gave up on him. He is starting to change Wade's opinion of him.
