CSR Seahawks at Panthers Tail Gate Search

I'm going to the Seahawks game so I'm looking for a CSR member tailgate to attend. I promise to not be too obnoxious if you invite me. In the past I've gone to one in the parking lot across from Picasso's so that is my fall back plan. But I would much prefer to meet up with someone I haven't met yet. So please provide a location and parking instructions. I plan to arrive at the stadium by 11am at the latest so as to have time for a few beverages in advance of kick off. Keep Pounding!

College Football Open Thread

The pro season is just hitting the halfway point, but the college season is getting close to the end. There are not a lot of great matchups today, but there are some rather surprising teams high in the rankings, like Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Michigan State and TCU. And college games are always good for scouting out future talent - draft season is just a few months away! Use this threat for any college chat, or anything else you want to dive into.

NFL Trade Rumors: Broncos' CB Tony Carter a fit for Giants?

Denver slot corner could be available at the NFL trade deadline. With Walter Thurmond and Trumaine McBride lost for the season due to injuries, the slot cornerback spot is in flux for the New York Giants. With the NFL trade deadline looming on Tuesday, and veteran slot corner Tony Carter apparently being a player the Denver Broncos no longer have a use for, could the Giants be among the teams expressing interest? NFL.com inside Ian Rapoport says (via Pro Football Rumors) that Carter, 28, has been "generating interest" with the trade deadline approaching. Pro Football Rumors makes the...

St. Louis Rams: The Greatest Hugs on Turf

St. Louis Rams: The Greatest Hugs on Turf

After several years of losing seasons, you’d think St. Louis Rams’ players would need a hug. And they do...but not necessarily to comfort one another after a loss. "You can’t wrap love in a box, but you can wrap a person in a hug."  That’s what I, and Author Unknown, always say.  Deep stuff, I know. On January 30, 2000, after winning Super Bowl XXXIV, two Rams embraced for the first time in franchise history [don’t bother looking for earlier dates].  After that hug of pure jubilation, Rams players, coaches, and fans have continued to hug for one reason or another.  Have a...

Getting To Know The Enemy: Dallas Cowboys

Getting To Know The Enemy: Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys are a surprising 6-1 and the Redskins are going to Dallas this week. How'd that happen? It's Dallas week, and unfortunately they are coming in with a 6-1 record that surprised everyone except for...Dallas Cowboys fans.  The Redskins are on the other end of the spectrum, going into Dallas with a disappointing 2-5 record.  Are the Cowboys one of the best teams in the league, or just overrated and lucky?  I spoke with Dave Halprin from BloggingTheBoys and asked him 5 questions about the current state of the Cowboys.  His answers to my questions will be up today.  Thanks to...

Cardinals vs. Eagles: How much impact will Andre Ellington have?

Cardinals vs. Eagles: How much impact will Andre Ellington have?

The running back did not play in last year's game. The Arizona Cardinals will have one player in the lineup they did not in 2013 when they took on the Philadelphia Eagles on the road. Starting running back Andre Ellington missed the 2013 matchup, a 24-21 loss. He will be in the lineup this Sunday in University of Phoenix Stadium. He is coming off a 30-touch, 160-yard performance. His yards per carry average is down from last year, but he is still making an impact. How much of an impact will he have on Sunday? Head coach Bruce Arians calls him "the focal point" of the offense. Arizona was...

Browns Matchup: Raiders Run Defense

Browns Matchup: Raiders Run Defense

In this article, I look at how the Raiders defense fares against outside zone runs, as these are vital to the Browns offensive scheme. Last week, the Oakland Raiders hosted the Arizona Cardinals (a game which Arizona won 24-13). The Cardinals are not quite a "true" zone blocking scheme team, as they incorporate a variety of running plays into their offense, but they still run a good deal of outside zone, inside zone, and other related runs. Here's a series of plays from near the end of the third quarter of the Cardinals vs. Raiders game last week. On this drive, the Cardinals repeatedly...

Ronnie Lott thinks he could adjust to today's NFL, be better than the Seahawks' safeties

He's so modest! Former San Francisco 49ers safety Ronnie Lott is ... one of the greatest players to ever play in the NFL. He was just incredible at every aspect of the game, was a vocal leader and was so ridiculously dedicated to to his team. I could talk and talk about how great Lott was (and is) all day if you let me (though there are others here who are better-suited to talk about the classic 49ers as I'm relatively young), but this article does actually have a point. Recently, Lott conducted an interview with Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report,  and there's plenty of good stuff in it....

Could the Packers capitalize on their cornerback depth at the trade deadline?

The polarizing Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel writer makes an intriguing suggestion. In NBA circles, few things shake up the landscape more than a late night #WojBomb. Though more limited in scope, a post by Bob McGinn can often produce a comparable impact on the Packers beat. Late Friday night, the most senior Packers scribe for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel wrote that the team should consider dealing away some of its cornerback depth before Tuesday's trade deadline. Before exploring the likelihood of such a transaction, let's evaluate the merits of McGinn's suggestion. At present, the...

Lions notes: Kickalicious stops by practice

Lions notes looks at Havard Rugland, the team's captains this week and much more. Havard Rugland -- yes, the man called Kickalicious -- visited the Detroit Lions' practice on Friday. He wasn't there to try out for the Lions' kicker job or anything like that, though. He simply stopped by to visit with his former team.

49ers mid-season review: Tight ends

49ers mid-season review: Tight ends

The San Francisco 49ers tight end position has been a big question mark in 2014. How will the depth chart shake out in the second half of the season? The San Francisco 49ers are closing in on the end of their bye week, and will be returning to practice on Monday. We are not exactly halfway through the season, but the timing of the bye is close enough that it makes sense to take a look at where everything stands. We will be going through each position over the next week. Thus far we have looked at the quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and offensive line. Today, we move on to...

Cardinals vs. Eagles final injury report: Calais Campbell a game time decision; Sproles, Kendricks questionable for Philly

A final look at the injury report before Sunday. Friday practices meant the final injury report and the gameday status for the players on it. The Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles released their injury reports and most fully participated in practice. For Arizona, only tight end Troy Niklas sat out practice. He is out for the game and head coach Bruce Arians is displeased with where he is at, as quoted at AZCardinals.com. "His situation, talking to the trainers, if he can push the sled he can play because he's a damn tackle," Arians said. "He's not a wide receiver. He doesn't have...
