Former Fighting Sioux defenseman Joe Finley has been signed by the Buffalo Sabres. If you have lost track of Joe Finley, this is the first year since leaving college that big Joe has been remotely healthy. If you go to Joe Finley Hockey fights page you will see that Joe has been wracking up the fights as well since leaving college. Sounds like Finley is doing what ever it takes to help his team win games.
TheAHL.COM — Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier today announced that the team has signed defenseman Joe Finley to a multi-year contract.
The 6-foot-8, 260-pound Finley has two points (1g, 1a) and a plus-10 rating in 18 games played with the the Rochester Americans and leads the team with 57 penalty minutes. Finley, 24, is in his third professional season out of the University of North Dakota and has totaled one goal, two assists and 79 PIM in 26 career AHL games with Rochester and Hershey.
In passing for 254 yards, Bears quarterback Caleb Hanie became the first NFL quarterback to throw for more than 250 yards and rush for over 50 yards in his first career start since the Vikings’ Rich Gannon on Sept. 30, 1990.
Hanie’s 50 yards on the ground were the most by a Bears quarterback since Kordell Stewart had 52 on Oct. 5, 2003 also against the Raiders.
The Bears did themselves no favors with the offensive play calling on Sunday. They struggle to find an offensive rhythm when Jay Cutler has to throw it more than 30 times per game, let alone backup Caleb Hanie. Matt Forte needs many more than 12 carries, and when he gets tired, Marion Barber III can carry the load. But Hanie throwing it 36 times is absurd.
