Defensive Schemes: The Rex 46 Hybrid in Carolina

As promised, today we're going to take a look at a 3-4 alignment that we could see the Panthers running next season. As I began to read more and more about Buddy Ryan's 46 Defense, I became...


A Defensive Treatise: The Buddy Ryan 46

Back in March, we were given tribute to an exhaustive and amazing two part post on the JJ43 Defense by Son of a Newton (part I and part II). It is important because both our head coach and...


Defensive Break Downs: What Happened in 2011?

There really just is no way to sugar coat this at all. Last year, our defense was utterly abysmal. We may have had 18 guys on IR (a franchise record), but even with such extensive injuries, there...

Rico Wallace interviewd by Mocking the Draft


The fellow SBNation guys over at Mocking the Draft caught up with Rico Wallace. It was a nice read with an unfamiliar player and gave a few insights into the team that I thought was pretty nice. In particular, the toughest CB by Wallace's account was Josh Norman. I keep hearing the good things about this kid.


First Look: Camp Battles in the Making

Ah, summer time... The draft is done. Free Agency is practically over. The days are long and the sun is sweltering. Or at least it will be come July and August in the upstate when the Carolina...

Carolina Panthers Top Five Running Backs


All the way at the bottom of this article, they rank our top 5 RBs of all time. Thought it was interesting.

Football Outsiders: Broken Tackles, Part II


The guys over at Football Outsiders have now set their sites on defenders who give up the most and least broken tackles and there are things to be excited for and unhappy about for Carolina fans. Notable Mentions: Jordan Senn and Dan Connor had some of the fewest broken tackle rates for LB. Chris Gamble and Sherrod Martin had some of the highest broken tackle rates among DBs.

Football Outsiders: Broken Tackles


The brilliant people of Football Outsiders have taken a look into broken tackles for the past NFL season. Where do the Panthers RBs rank? What about our QB? How about WRs and overall? It's all there and it may actually surprise you a bit.

How to Write a Great Article

It's an interesting time for us at CSR. We've had a huge influx of new members thanks to a certain rookie QB and our editors have begun to look to expanding the staff. But even for those who...

Cam to Join Elite Company

With Eli Manning now making a return trip to the Super Bowl, Cam Newton will get his very first Pro Bowl of his career during this, his rookie year. With most analysts all-but proclaiming Newton...

Top 5 Crazy-But-True Panther's Stats


Saw this after reading the Night-Mare! post by the same author. Featured are J.Stew's receiving abilities, our WR corps (or lack thereof), The Krakken unleashed, our 3-headed Monster run game, and a surprising stat from our NT who is supposed to be "just another guy" in the mix.


Draft Revelations from the Houston Game

There are a few things from the Houston game that I think are pretty important as they impact our draft next year. Overall, it was a great game. The defense played big making some grand stops and...

Matt Kalil to Enter 2012 Draft


USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil has decided to forego his senior season and seek entry into the 2012 NFL draft, sources have told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen. Interesting...


Forget Rookie of the Year: Cam deserves a Pro-Bowl

Do I have your attention yet? I'm going to be making the case for why Cam Newton, our phenom rookie QB, should be voted into this year's Pro-Bowl. In my mind, it's still an uphill battle. There...

LB James Anderson rolls ankle in practice


The Carolina Panthers are so thin at linebacker that coach Ron Rivera, a former linebacker with the Chicago Bears, joked that he might have to dig out his cleats and suit up Sunday against Tennessee.

Panthers Rank 3rd in Rushing!?


According to the guys over at Football Outsiders, the team efficiency for rushing is ranked 3rd in the league, behind only Minnesota and Buffalo. Also, despite a slow start, both Williams and Stewart are in the top 20 for RBs. Williams is #18 and Stewart is right behind at #19.

Been bothered lately by the growing sentiment that DeAngelo Williams can't get it done and we...


Been bothered lately by the growing sentiment that DeAngelo Williams can't get it done and we should move toward Stewart as a feature back. Personally, I see them both as equal caliber, but with Williams struggling at the start, more and more people seem to suggest something else. Maybe you all need a reminder of what Williams can do.. (Note: Didn't make the video, but it is a good one.)


The Smitty Debate

So, are we ever going to get an announcement on who won the last debate?

Mallet Rumor Debunked: Didn't blow off Panthers


It would appear someone got their information wrong.


QBs Blaine Gabbert and Matt Ryan: A Comparison

Originally, I wasn't going to make this into a Fan Post, but it finally grew large enough to where I figured it was worhty of one. Several weeks ago, James brought up a point that has been really...

Ironic, Isn't it?


Take a look at the 2nd picture on the right hand side. Assuming no one changes it, I'm sure everyone will get a good chuckle.

CBA deadline pushed back 24 hours


According to Darin Gantt, the CBA has been pushed back one day to give them more time for negotiations.

Back-to-Back #1 Picks?


This from Steve Reed of the Gaston Gazette and "But if there is one bright spot for the Panthers it is that they would indeed get the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL draft if there is no football in 2011, a high-ranking league source has confirmed to Carolina Growl."

Skipper to Return to Panthers?


I found this interesting little tidbit on the Carolina Growl: "According to a league source there's a chance Jim Skipper could return as running backs coach after all. Skipper had considered a spot with John Fox's staff in Denver, but is in the process of deciding which way he wants to go in his career. The Broncos are keeping their running backs coach from last year." ~Steve Reed

5 Steps for the Panthers 2011 season

The Panthers dropped the ball again on Sunday after a dominating first half, letting the Seahawks score 31 unanswered points against us.  We can clearly see, from this game alone, every single...

We play at 4:15 today


For those of the Panther faithful who, like me, weren't putting 2 and 2 together this morning... We will be playing 4:15 EST today instead our usual 1 PM time slot. Editor's Note: I think we could all use a helpful reminder! - JD After the bump from James, I figured I'd ask a question... How will you (or did you) spend your time waiting for the Panthers to take on the Seahawks later today?

WASHINGTON at NEW YORK GIANTS: The kind of game that makes the NFC East what it is - not quite as strong as the NFC South. Giants 31, Redskins 20.
