Fantasy Football WR Brian Quick

The St. Louis Rams were high enough on Brian Quick to get out of the Justin Blackmon race and instead pick him up in the second round. Other than a lackluster and inexperienced Denario Alexander, Brian Quick will be the biggest wide receiver, and best choice of target for whoever is healthy behind center, in the Rams quiet arsenal of last season. New Head Coach Jeff Fisher has always liked to stretch the football field with speedy wide receivers and Brian Quick could find himself starting immediately.

2012 NBA Draft Preview

A quick preview for the NBA Draft tonight. James went on ESPN Radio 1240 WBBW yesterday to talk some NBA Draft. Who do the Cavs take? Do they trade up? Maybe trade down? All we know is there should be lots of trades.

Perfect Game vs. Back-to-Back One-Hitters

@3SNDeLlav                                      @3SNdot    
The Perfect Game. It has always been the epitome of baseball glory. 27 up, 27 down. Nothing beats perfection. ....or does it? R.A. Dickey of the New York Mets just pulled off another feat that might challenge the perfect game. The Knuckleballer threw two straight one-hitters. Can it compete with perfection though?

We asked the 3SN crew to debate. And the fans need to choose between the long-winded Dot and the short-and-sweet Dellav. They answer the question: Which is more impressive? The Perfect Game? or Back-to-Back One-Hitters?

Death Penalty for Penn State?

"Jerry Sandusky should get the death penalty... Penn State football should, too."

Image courtesy of
I've seen this quote or some sort of variation in multiple southern newspapers (Birmingham News, Tennessean, Orlando Sentinel) over the past 48 hours. The death penalty is the worst punishment that the NCAA can impose upon a school. But is that an appropriate punishment for the Penn State football program?

My response to the statement proposed by these three papers and probably countless others: One absolutely does not deserve the death penalty, and the other one I probably shouldn't submit my comment.

Fantasy RB Sleepers Isaac Redman

Don't call me a Steelers' homer, and don't make fun when I say Isaac Redman has some sleeper potential this year on fantasy football rosters. He's a decent back, on a team that is moving into his style of ball...but that's not the only reason.

The Ring-less "King" No More

It's over, he did it. Lebron got ring. He did it in a dominating fashion also. Lebron James took home the NBA MVP and the NBA Finals MVP award. The dude deserves it, he really does. A lot of people have called me a Miami Heat apologist, I can assure you that it not the case. 

Image courtesy of
I rooted for the Heat because of the unique circumstances that the "decision" and the premature celebration created for the the big three. Yes, I know that Lebron, Wade, and Bosh put the pressure on themselves, but still the pressure almost didn't seem fair even for what they did. Death by media, that what this article would have been called if Miami lost this finals. I guarantee you that the "big 3" regret the celebration they had when King James arrived, and I especially guarantee the way Lebron left Cleveland. I could honestly imagine Lebron James drinking himself into a hospital bed if he would never have won a championship in Miami (God forbid that ever happens).

Fantasy RB Sleepers Doug Martin

Image courtesy of
When the Buccaneers traded back into the first round to draft Doug Martin with the 31st pick overall, a lot of fantasy football owners, and NFL analysts alike, thought he would be splitting carries with current running back LeGarrette Blount. Now, it's looking more and more in the fantasy football world, that Martin will be the starter and Blount will be a second thought.

Fantasy RB Sleepers Taiwan Jones

Fantasy football talk is in full swing and I'm going to be bringing some sleepers into the spotlight over the next few months. Today, we are going to look at a running back that could move into a heavy RB2 role on his team, and possibly become the starting running back of a team that likes rushing the ball.

"He Said / He Said" - Do you want to see the Heat win the title?

@3SNDeLlav                                @3SNdot  
We know that our 3SN team is very much split on their desires to see the Miami Heat win an NBA title. After a big Game 6 by LeBron and the Heat, it's time for our experts to make their voices herard. We asked DeLlav and Dot to clarify and defend their positions on the Heat winning a championship.

Possible suitors for Ochocinco

At least he still got his Apps.

Well that was a forgettable tenure. Ochocinco referred to New England as "heaven" when he got traded there last year. So much for that eh? Look, I have been saying for years that Ochocinco was on the decline and now it seems his career may be in serious jeopardy.  I think he will find a team but his options will be limited. I do see some possible suitors for the once NFL star.

Jaguars: Jacksonville offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowkski worked with Ochocinco while he was in Cincy. So one would assume that Ochocinco would not have that hard of a time picking up the playbook like he did in "heaven". He could mentor Justin Blackmon and the Jaguars need to sell tickets. I think this is a great fit.

Dolphins: Ochocinco would love to be on the HBO series "Hard knocks" and he also has a residence in Miami.  The Dolphins have a few no name receivers and this could be an "attention grabber" for Miami's fickle fans. I think taking his talents to South Beach wouldn't be such a bad idea. Although, he would have to compete with Lebron James for the spotlight.

Dallas:  You can't rule anything out with Jerry Jones. The cowboys do not have great depth at wide receiver and I bet Ochocinco would love to call himself a "Cowboy". Also, I doubt Ochocinco would cry over Tony Romo when his critic’s come after him like they always do.

Raiders: I don't think this is as far fetched as some people think it is. I understand Carson Palmer got frustrated while he was in Cincinnati but I think it may have been more T.O than Ochocinco. This could be a good fit for Chad because obviously he worked with Carson Palmer and It shouldn't be hard to pick up the offense.  
Steelers: I'm just kidding obviously, but I think it would be so fun to have Ochocinco on the sidelines suited up in the black and gold. If Mike Wallace continues being stubborn then they obviously could use another reciever. Ochocinco will likely be one of the last players the Steelers would think about signing but man it would be so fun.
Sites like and have said other suitors could be Carolina and Buffalo, but I really do not see it. I also heard on ESPN that San Fransisco could be a landing spot but come on. They just reloaded with players like Randy Moss and Mario Manningham. The "MossOcho Show"?  It just doesn't have the same ring to it like the show he did with T.O back in early 2010. Honestly, If it is not Jacksonville, Miami, or Dallas, then I think we may in fact have seen the last of Chad Ochocinco. What a shame.

The Panther Chronicles: Favorite Football Players pt. 2

CLICK HERE FOR PART ONE of DeLlav's favorite Pitt players!

 Many people don't realize this, but Antonio Bryant was in the Heisman discussion in 2001. Furthermore, people don't realize Bryant was a Fred Belitnikoff award winner as well. He is kind of the "forgotten" man in Pitt football history. That may be because of his brash behavior and his mediocre stint in the NFL but Antonio Bryant was one of the reasons Pitt began to turn the tide in the late 90's. Actually, the more I think about it, the more I realize that the reason Antonio Bryant has been forgotten was because of the future Heisman Hopeful and Fred Belitnikoff award winning Panther. You all know who I am talking about... Bottom line, Pitt fans MUST NOT forget what Antonio Bryant did for Pitt and be grateful for his talents in Oakland.

Do I really even need to say why he is on this list? A Pitt Panther made the cover of an EA Sports title. For me, I will always be proud of that. On the field, Larry Fitzgerald was the best player in college football. He finished second in the Heisman voting to Jason White, but Fitz should have won that trophy. Wide Receivers, let alone sophomores, get no love in the Heisman voting. If Pitt finished better than 8-5 and if Larry Fitzgerald was a senior, I bet my bottom dollar that Larry would have brought home the Heisman to the Pitt community for the first time since Tony Dorsett. I am not going to list his statistics or his awards that he won while he was a Panther because nobody needs to be reminded. Instead I am going to salute Larry Legend for bringing life into the Panther program again. Thanks bro, means a lot.

The Panther Chronicles: Favorite Football Players pt. 1

Ever since the 360 Community Sports days, I have written a lot about Pitt Panther athletics. I have basically said everything that I felt like saying, whether it be Dave "the stache" Wannstedt or Steve "Quaker Oats" Pederson. So I guess I am just going to do a breakdown on my favorite Pitt football players from the past 12 years. I'll rank them but it's going to be simple and sweet. Not one of my longer posts. It will be broken up into a few separate posts for the sake of "brevity". It is completely random I know, but I feel like talking Pitt and I am not sure what else to talk about. So lets get right into it.

Reaction to Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix

What's more broken? The patch-work on the Belle Isle streets in Detroit? Or the questionable decision-making by race directors of the IndyCar Series?

The answer: Both are bad, but there is something much more to blame for the disappointing occurrences today on the streets of Detroit.

Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix - Fantasy Racing

It's a week after the Indy 500, and the cars, drivers, and teams are ready to get back on the track! After a month on the famed oval, the series again returns to the road and street courses. This week, it's a return to the great circuit at Belle Isle in Detroit.

Things are going to get dicey in a hurry in the IndyCar Series, as the 500 began a string of five straight weeks of racing. After Belle Isle this week, it's three straight ovals. So a lot of technical changes are up and coming from the fastest course in the world in Indy to a tight, winding, temporary street course in Detroit. Let the fun begin!
