    What's Hot: Big Ben's ranking, Le'Veon's knee and the '95 Steelers

    in Football

    With no new news surrounding Tom Brady and Deflategate, we're going to spend more time discussing Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who was ranked as the No.3 best quarterback in the NFL according to NFL.com'sElliott Harrison. We'll break down Big Ben's ranking along with sharing with you our top-10 quarterback list.


    We'll also delve into the potential PAT changes to be voted on this week by the NFL owners. What are the new options for the PAT? And what does this mean for the Steelers? We'll address these questions while offering our thoughts on what should happen to the PAT.


    In an interview with ESPN last week, Le'Veon Bell touched on several topics that included marijuana and the status of his right knee. We'll recap the interview and discuss whether or not Steelers fans should be worried about No.26's knee heading into next season.


    It's hard to believe it's been 20 years since the 1995 Steelers captured the franchise's first AFC title since the  '79 Steelers. We'll go back to the '90s and relive the greatest moments from that magical season that ended with a spirited battle against the Cowboys in Super Bowl XXX.


    We want to hear the voice of Steelers Nation, so feel free to call the show at (347) 850-8581 to join us in our conversation of the Black and Gold.

    What's Hot: Pittsburgh Steelers OTAs, Week 1 matchup and the 1978 team

    in Football

    It's never too early to make predictions.


    That's just one thing we'll do in the newest edition of "What's Hot", which will air live Wednesday night on ourBlogTalkRadio page at 9:00 p.m. ET. We'll discuss the Steelers' quotes from earlier this week regarding the team's Week One matchup against the Patriots, while also offering some Fact or Fiction predictions about the 2015 Steelers that will include discussions about the Steelers' offense's shot at being No.1 in the NFL, the defense and how many turnovers it will record in '15, DeAngelo Williams' future production and what Pittsburgh's record will be after three games.


    Last week, the Steelers uniforms were named as the NFL's best by ESPN. Which variation of the Steelers' jersey is your favorite? Chris Carter and I will discuss which is our favorite Steelers uniform.


    Co-host and fellow BTSC writer Chris Carter and I believe that the 1978 Steelers are the best team in NFL history. In light of the NFL's Network's Dynasty Week celebration last week, what team do we think could rival the 1978 Steelers as the best team in NFL history? We'll break down the other great teams in NFL history to see if there really is a worthy challenger that could go toe-to-toe with the great Steelers of '78.

    Characterizing Jameis Winston's character

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast - Depth Perspective Episode 118: is anyone capable of judging another person's character?


    Accurately measuring a person's character is an impossible task and would require a privacy violation to even attempt. 


    "Injury prone" and "character risk" are two prime examples of the generic, all-encompassing sports labeling system. 


    Why talking about players in a fantasy football context is different than a real life context. 


    Not factoring character concerns into a prospect evaluation could actually be a competitive advantage for an NFL team.

    Roy McCloud on Getting Rest In God 2

    in Christianity

    Biblical rest is not rest in the sense of relaxing, but rather rest in the sense of ceasing from labor or cease from exertion.  God wants His people to enter into His rest. A place where they are not exerting enegry except to trust Him.  Human effort profits little, but resting in The Lord is a pwoerful tool.


    Listen in as Roy ministers a message adapted from his pastor, Bishop Ben Gibert on rest.

    Computer America


    Hour one: Author Carey Nachenberg, Chief Engineer, Symantec Corporation.


    Our guest tonight is the Chief Engineer for the Symantec Corporation, however, he's not here tonight to talk about Symantec…


    He's an Author of a new book entitled "The Florentine Deception." Here's the premise:


    You never know what secrets you’ll find buried inside an old computer. On a whim, a cyber-security expert engages in a bit of digital snooping while cleaning up an old PC for a charity. To his surprise, he learns that the computer’s deceased owner, a shady antiquities smuggler, had been trying to unload a priceless object known as the Florentine on the black market. But what starts out as a seemingly innocuous pursuit quickly turns into a nightmare, as he discovers that the Florentine may not be a lost treasure after all, but a weapon that, in the wrong hands, could bring the developed world to its knees. Will he unlock the secrets of the Florentine in time to prevent a catastrophic attack? 


    Please welcome Chief Engineer, and now Author Carey Nachenberg to the Show.
