Mr. Gnome goes to Spartanburg

Mr. Gnome goes to Spartanburg

I took a Panthers gnome to training camp and got it signed by a lot of really confused players and executives. Some time ago, James Dator wrote a piece on the 'worst' Panthers merchandise money can buy. Within that story was an item that seemed tailor made for me. Never have I worn a Panthers branded pair of long underwear of which the in-seam fit so snugly, so perfectly, as this item fit my gnome de guerre. Of course, just having a logo branded on its hat and teddy bear was not enough for me. I knew that dedication and love must be felt as well as seen and so I decided to have tokens of...
Could Jimmy Smith leave the Ravens after the next two seasons?

Could Jimmy Smith leave the Ravens after the next two seasons?

Smith improved considerably throughout the course of the 2013 season and showed why the Ravens selected him in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft.

The Ravens picked up the fifth year option of his rookie deal, meaning he's likely to stay in Baltimore through the 2015 season....

Aaron Dobson's Foot is Screwed

News has surfaced that wide receiver Aaron Dobson received a screw in his foot back in March. The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe has reported that Patriots rising sophomore receiver Aaron Dobson received a screw in his foot during his March 10th surgery to repare a fracture on the 5th metatarsal. This news is important because it sheds some light on the severity of the injury. Dobson was on pace for a top 25% season for a rookie receiver through an extremely consistent first half of the season (50 receptions and 700 yards is top 25% production), but he fractured his foot against the Denver...
