Panthers RG Trai Turner named to Pro Bowl

Panthers RG Trai Turner named to Pro Bowl

This is the Panthers linemen's second straight nomination. HC Ron Rivera makes the case that Turner is very worthy: "When you see how athletic he is and his ability to do those types of things, you really see his value for us," head coach Ron Rivera said during the season. "That's important to have that kind of flexibility but also have the willingness to do it. That sends a great message to everybody in that locker room, that guys are going to do whatever they can to help us win a football game. That's impressive." He's certainly the kind of player you want in the locker room. Congrats...

2017 NFL Draft: Potential Panther? Michael Roberts, TE, Toledo

2017 NFL Draft: Potential Panther? Michael Roberts, TE, Toledo

According to NFL.com, on day one of the East-West Shrine bowl week, the Panthers interviewed Toledo TE Michael Roberts, whose freakish big hands are causing a stir. Michael Roberts, TE, Toledo Twitter is ablaze after Roberts measured with the largest hands at Shine week with 11 5/8 inches. Draft analysts were tweeting that is one of the biggest hand measurements they have ever seen, with one analyst pointing out that it a full inch bigger than Rob Gronkowski's hand size. My Thoughts The only time I watched Toledo play this season was in the Camellia Bowl against Appalachian State. In that...

Panthers fans have lost that loving feeling for GM Dave Gettleman

Panthers fans have lost that loving feeling for GM Dave Gettleman

We tracked Panthers GM Dave Gettleman's job approval with the CSR membership and results show his approval tanked as the season wore on and the losses piled up. In spite of the early losses and 1-3 start the membership still gave Gettleman a 60% approval rating. At the time it was apparent the Panthers were not playing well but we had hope they could bounce back.

Would You Rather: Derek Barnett or Taco Charlton?

Would You Rather: Derek Barnett or Taco Charlton?

It’s no secret the Panthers need help at defensive end. Luckily, there are plenty of options for Dave Gettleman to choose from. Let’s take a closer look at two possible choices for Carolina’s 8th overall pick. The 2017 NFL Draft is only a few months away, but we have plenty of time to discuss all the available prospects that will be available for the Panthers’ 8th overall pick. Since CSR is a hotbed for draft discussions anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to spend one day per week playing the game Would you rather? to learn everyone’s thoughts about the top prospects in...

Five Optimisms of the Carolina Panthers 2016 Season

Five Optimisms of the Carolina Panthers 2016 Season

Now that the dust has settled a bit on 2016, let’s reflect on some positives the team can take into the off-season. The first optimism I’m going to lay out to you, and this doesn’t count as one of the five, is that 2016 wasn’t as bad as it feels right now. The Carolina Panthers have a lot of positive things they can take away from this season, and I firmly believe that there are several teams in the league that aren’t in as good of a position as we are. Some of those teams had better records than us, and one of them even made the playoffs. I’ve been a rational realist my entire...

Panthers WR Coach Ricky Proehl steps down

Panthers WR Coach Ricky Proehl steps down

Proehl says he needs to be there for his two sons that are playing college ball. While it's natural to think there may be more behind this move I'm taking it at face value. Ricky Proehl steps down as wide receivers coach I always told him when he started at Chapel Hill that if he became a starter or an impact player, that I would walk away to come to all his games," Proehl explained. "It would really hurt me to not be there for him. "The first thing kids do is look back for mom and dad. That doesn’t change, no matter how old you are. For the last three years for Austin, I haven’t been...

For the stat nuts out there here's a look at how the Panthers finished in Football Outsiders DVOA rankings. You can click through for the rankings yourself. Please note that no single metric can adequately define a team's performance in any aspect.

There are a number of interesting tidbits in the data this year but let's get the meat of the issue for the Panthers first.

2017 NFL Draft: Potential Panther? Marcus Maye, S, Florida
