Sam Darnold to start versus the Seahawks

Photo by Grant Halverson/ Panthers are riding the hot hand at quarterback The Carolina Panthers have announced that quarterback Sam Darnold will start against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Last week, Darnold put together one of the more complete quarterback performances of the season. He completed 11 of 19 passes for 164 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Denver Broncos. Those numbers are both impressively efficient against...

Photo by Rob Carr/ The Panthers hit the road after their bye week to take on the Seahawks in Week 14. The Carolina Panthers beat the Broncos in Week 12 and then took a week off in Week 13, but the oddsmakers must have forgotten about their dominant win over Denver as the Panthers are 6-point road underdogs against the Seahawks heading into Week 14, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The over/under is currently set at 43.5 points. The Panthers are 4-8 and are tied for last place in the NFC South, and the 7-5 Seahawks are in second place in the NFC West, so I can...

Analyzing Steve Smith’s Hall of Fame résumé

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports The best wide receiver in Panthers history is a semifinalist for the honor. The Panthers don’t have a game this weekend. What better way to go into that weekend reminiscing about a time when the Panthers were actually good? The Carolina Panthers still don’t have a Hall of Famer to call their own. Hall of Famers like Kevin Greene and Reggie White have made their way through Carolina in the twilights of their careers, but neither made their names here. White spent one year in Carolina between bouts of retirement. Greene had some of...

Photo by Grant Halverson/ Check out the CSR staff’s Week 13 picks Now that we’re into the meat of the Carolina Panthers bye week, we must turn our attention to an empty Sunday. There are three types of game this week that Panthers fans might have an interest in. The first features “good” football teams, for those fans who have forgotten what that looks like; the second type are games featuring divisional opponents, as the Panthers are laughably still alive in the race for the NFC South crown; the last type is the most depressing, as these are the games that can...

Panthers 2022 Bye Week Review: Defense

Jessica Rapfogel-USA TODAY Sports The Carolina Panthers defense continues to be the strong point of this 2022 effort. The Panthers defense is the strong suit this season. The stats don’t necessarily reflect it, but a struggling offense often times forced them to be on the field a great deal longer than one would expect with an even middling offense. Matt Rhule did accomplish one thing; he created a defense that can hang with most offenses in the NFL. The elite passing offenses and the teams that can devote most of their game plan to running the football (often...

Keep Sounding: Ravens/Broncos recap, season review for the bye week

The Panthers have had some ups and downs, and now we use the bye week to see where we are. We have mercifully made it to the Carolina Panthers bye week. Thankfully they sent us into the week off with a commanding win over the Denver Broncos. We recap that among some other stuff listed below: The Panthers lost a brutally boring game against the Ravens since we know you all were sad you didn’t get to hear us talk about it. We spend like five minutes on it though because the past is the past. More time on the win over the Broncos because that game was more fun It was...
