Carolina Panthers Thursday Afternoon Predictions: Panthers-Browns

It's prediction time once again. Will the Panthers beat the Browns? Find out that and more in this week's Thursday Afternoon Predictions. 1. The Browns will come up with at least one interception Admittedly, this isn't a bold prediction. Why? Because the Browns' defense just so happen to lead the league in interceptions(20). Additionally, they lead the league in completion percentage defense and are third in yards per attempt allowed. Needless to say, this is a very good pass defense. 2. Jonathan Stewart will rush for more than 100 yards The Browns defend the pass well, but not so much...

6 days to go: Keep Pounding Savanna!

You've been incredibly generous, now we just need one more push. Thank you CSR community, thank you Panthers fans, thank you everyone. So far you've helped raise almost $1,500 for Savanna and her family ahead of the holidays and your generosity has been outstanding. Now we have just a week left, and I'm asking you to help push us to our goal. 15-year-old Savanna was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia just over a year ago, and we want to help ease the financial burden on her family. You can read her full story here. If everyone who sees this just donates $1 we'd reach our goal by...

Panthers Shut Down CB Has Been Shut Down

From talking about Johnny Manziel that is. Knowing Josh Norman that has been one tall order to follow. When discussing the Panthers upcoming game against the Browns with the media this week CB Josh Norman refused to talk about rookie QB Johnny Manziel: Carolina Panthers' Josh Norman shut down from talking Johnny Football - ESPN""Coach told me not to talk about him," said Norman, referring to head coach Ron Rivera. "I'm not going to say anything about him." Norman didn't budge from that stance no matter how many different ways he was asked about Johnny Football, set to make his second start...

Jimmy Clausen is starting for the Bears, I wrote a poem

A meltdown of epic proportions in Chicago has led to Jay Cutler being benched in favor of Jimmy Clausen. Despite being on the Bears roster now, nobody is better equipped to celebrate this momentous occasion than us. Pickles starting again is worth of an epic poem, so that's just what we're going to do. The ballad of Jimmy Clausen By James Dator The future was bright, his hands were small -- and in Carolina there was hope once and for all. A quarterback borne of skill and toil would prove Marty Hurney has stuck draft oil. In the year twenty-ten fans became ready, the luck of the Irish had us...

Two Panthers Named Starters to PFF Pro Bowl Roster

Pro Football Focus has released their Pro Bowl rosters based on the performance grades they have issued for the 2014 season to date. Two Panthers are listed as starters and one is a reserve. Care to take a guess before looking below? One Panther earned a starting nod on offense: Tight End Starters: Rob Gronkowski (NE) and Greg Olsen (CAR)Reserves: Martellus Bennett (CHI) and Jason Witten (DAL) Breakdown: Olsen just edged out Bennett for the second starting spot, with no doubts whatsoever that Gronkowski would be in there. A down year (by his standards) for Jimmy Graham, injuries to Dwayne...

Cam Newton brings holiday cheer to kids and teachers

Post by Cam Newton. Cam Newton, man ... the dude keeps getting me right in the feels. It's at this point where we remember HE WAS IN A CAR ACCIDENT A WEEK AGO AND HAS TWO BACK FRACTURES! This week I cancelled going Christmas shopping because I decided it was too cold, this dude is a juggernaut. Post by Cam Newton. Newton traveled around Charlotte on Tuesday with the aid of his "elves," Kelvin Benjamin and Joe Webb. Without checking the record books it's safe to say that Benjamin is the tallest Christmas elf ever. I can't remember the last time we had a player this active in...

Thomas Davis nominated for Walter Payton Man of the Year

Teams around the league made their selections Tuesday to nominate their representatives for the prestigious Walter Payton Man of the Year award, unsurprisingly the Panthers chose a stalwart both on the field and in the community, outside linebacker Thomas Davis. This marks the second-straight year that Davis has been nominated for the award, taking over for former punter Jason Baker who was nominated in 2012. Davis has done amazing work in the community through the Thomas Davis Defending Dreams Foundation, raising money and providing critical support to youth and families in the greater...

Bucs at Panthers: Handing Out the Grades

This week's Pro Football Focus Grades Report features lots of green. As always, Hat Tip to Joe Velardo for providing the focused summary report. Analyst Gordon McGuinnes gives a review in this week's ReFocus, pointing Mike Remmer's emergence, Charles Johnson's monster day, and one of Kelvin Benjamin's best games. Offense 6 players in the green on offense again this week to 4 in the red. Solid day for the offensive line with a (+2.8) pass block grade and a (+3.0) run block grade. The offensive line gave up 8 pressures on the day: 2 sacks, 3 hits, 3 hurries. Mike Remmers continues on his...

Carolina Panthers Tuesday Afternoon Prospect Evaluation: You Choose

So far, I've examined twelve prospects who could very well become Carolina Panthers. Is there one in particular that you like as the best fit moving forward for this team? If so, then this is your chance to share that opinion. With a win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, the Panthers dropped from the eighth pick in the 2015 NFL Draft to the tenth. If they ended up with this selection, who would you most like to pick out of the names listed below. The 'insert name' slot is provided specifically for those who feel there will be a better prospect available at ten. Tuesday Afternoon...

Here's how the Panthers make the playoffs

Chicago couldn't get the job done, which makes things a lot more difficult. The Carolina Panthers needed a little help from the Bears on Monday night in order to make their unlikely playoff dreams a reality, but there's still a way Cam Newton and Co. can win the NFC South. A Saints loss on Monday Night Football would have put in the Panthers in control of their own destiny, alas the Bears suck and couldn't score any points until garbage time -- even while playing against a largely-terrible Saints defense. It was a punch in the gut to the Panthers playoff plans, but there's still a way this...

CSR NFL Week 15 MNF: We are All Bears Fans!

The Saints (5-8) travel to the windy city to play the Bears (5-8) in a crucial game for the Saints if they are to maintain the lead in the NFCS. Of course that means we hope the Bear crush them! I'm thinking Matt Forte runs wild in this one as Brees gets pressured into a bad game. That is my hope anyway. If the Saints should lose then the Panthers will control their destiny. All they would have to do is beat the Browns at home and then beat the falcons in ATL to win the NFC South. It's not a likely scenario but it's all we got! This is Now an Open Thread!

Panthers DE Frank Alexander Re-Instated by NFL; Make Roster Moves

That doesn't necessarily mean he will play for the Panthers this season but they have until Monday to decide. In other roster news, they released a DT and signed a DT.

They also released DT Micanor Regis and signed DT Kyle Love: Panthers sign Kyle Love, reinstate Frank Alexander | ProFootballTalkThe team announced Monday that they have signed defensive tackle Kyle Love and reinstated defensive end Frank Alexander after the end of his 10-game suspension.

Rivera: Panthers Will Not Rush Newton Back

Well of course that is what he is going to say right? But will he play? I'm reminded of a scene from the movie Stepbrothers were they are asking for permission to build bunk beds in their bed room but are unable to comprehend the answer.  What does that answer mean Ron? Will he play or not? If not will he play the following week? if no why are you dragging this out and torturing us? It sounds like the doctors have already cleared Newton to play (assuming he can handle the pain) Rivera seems to be leaving it up to Cam and how he performs in practice this week to make his...

Monday Morning Optimist: Buc yeah!

*Insert uncontrollable, maniacal laughter here* The Panthers could do it, they really could. This team may have found a way to suck out loud, be reprehensibly terrible, not have an offensive line, struggle in the secondary, lack offensive weapons, poorly support a franchise quarterback, make dumb mistakes and suffer through poor coaching decisions and still make the playoffs. And I love every second of it. Beating the Buccaneers on Sunday was an exercise in futility -- by both teams. Neither team played like it wanted to win, outside of a few fleeting minutes, but that didn't matter....
