Ben Roethlisberger: Third Best QB In NFL?

I was glossing over an article written over at RotoWorld, one of the best sites for player news out there today.  I got about five lines down and came to a screeching hault.  When discussing quarterbacks and their ranking on the fantasy world, we have this: 1. Peyton Manning IND 32 – With Clark re-signed

03/18 Morning Minute: The Second Half Strikes Again

Clank! Given the current playoff standings, the Cavaliers really needed a win last night against the Orlando Magic.  But, once again, the second night of a back-to-back stint provided this Cleveland team with a flat second half – and a loss.  Yes, LeBron put up 30, and is 34 points shy of the All-Time scoring leader for the

Sabathia In Pinstripes? Not So Fast

C.C. Sabathia Shoots Down New York Rumors….For Now While we Indians fans have had to slowly prepare ourselves for the departure of Cy Young winner C.C. Sabathia that feels more and more bound to happen, one prevailing school of thought has been that surely the Yankees would pony up the dough to make Sabathia an

03/07 Morning Minute: Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Welcome back, Zydrunas Ilgauskas!  Yesterday’s Cavaliers game was entirely too close for my liking, but there is no denying that Z’s presence in the post was huge on both ends of the floor.  Yes, he had 16 points, nine boards and three blocks, but indirectly enabling Ben Wallace to do his thing (15 rebounds, three steals,

03/15 Morning Minute: It’s NCAA Inundation!

Everywhere you look these days, it’s NCAA hoops.  You cannot help but to catch some of the MAC Tournament action, given that it’s in our back yard.  It’s looking like a Kent State University versus Akron University finals, which is more than sure to draw a solid crowd today.  Neither team had a cakewalk to

Browns still not done?

Scott brought to our attention today the signing of DB Gary Baxter to a one year contract. Also signing a one year deal was reserve FB Charles Ali. Ali was a decent special teams player and filled in nicely at times at FB. Word now is that the Browns have missed out on bringing back

One Last Try With Gary Baxter

Gary Baxter is a former second-round draft pick that once amassed back-t0-back seasons of at least 80 tackles with double-digit passes defensed.  In 2003, the cornerback also picked off three passes, had a sack and – most importantly – played in 16 games. He played in the same number of games again in 2004, the year

I apologize in advance, as I’ve been really pressed for time this week.  A lot going on in the ever-pressing “real” life, which I’m sure we can all attest to from time to time.  That is unless you’re DeShawn Stevenson, who apparently has entirely too much time on his hands. That’s right.  Instead of focusing

Cavs can’t overcome pathetic start

In the end the Cavaliers ran out of gas. They ran out of gas because they had to run full throttle to catch up. The Cavaliers came out flat against the Nets in the first half, falling behind by as many as 17. The lead was cut to 5 in the second quarter, but pushed

OSU Hoops: The Team To Watch?

Yesterday, ESPN’s Pat Forde broke down the major conferences, discussing things like “The Team to Beat,” or which team could be possibly “losing it.”  While it comes as no surprise that the team “losing it” is one Indiana University, following the loss of Kelvin Sampson, the “Team to watch” definitely caught my eye: Team to

Not to belabor the point, but most of us here at WFNY do not get the opportunity to watch the CSU Vikings games. Certainly, they don’t get much coverage in the local press either.
