    Web site of the day

    The Ravens are all about talk, and this fan site has all sorts of audio clips to download -- Shannon Sharpe has a half-dozen gems, and the download time isn't too bad. There are lengthy profiles on most players, galleries of game photos and fresh news updated daily. One poll asks who the Ravens' offensive MVP is, and kicker Matt Stover leads the voting with 35 percent, just ahead of rookie tailback Jamal Lewis.

    Super Bowl heroes: Where are they now?

    Roger Craig

    Former 49ers running back Roger Craig, who is tied with three others for the NFL record for points in a Super Bowl with 18 (XIX, 1985), helped revolutionize his position. In 1985, he became the first NFL running back to rush and receive for more than 1,000 yards in a season. He also helped the 49ers to two more Super Bowl victories (XXII, XXIV).

    Craig now is a Silicon Valley business development director, working for TIBCO Software Inc. One of his recent projects has been bringing digital information (statistics, weather, news) via handheld wireless devices to fans during games at 3Com Park in San Francisco. Craig also has a golf tournament that raises funds for the United Way. He and his wife, Vernessia, have five children. -- SHARON GINN

    Obscure player of the day

    Ryan Phillips

    Today's quiz: Name the Giants' starting linebackers.

    Easy, right? There's Jessie Armstead and Micheal Barrow and. . .

    Um. Er. Ummm.

    Just give up. Unless you're big Giants fan, a serious NFL junkie or enjoy tracking players from Idaho, Ryan Phillips is unknown to you.

    The third-round draft choice in 1997 is perhaps the most anonymous starter on the Giants' stellar defense.

    A defensive end in college who had 39 career sacks, Phillips (6 feet 4, 252 pounds), had 58 tackles, two interceptions and 11/2 sacks this season while starting 15 of 16 games at strongside linebacker.

    Phillips' career has traced an upward arc. As a rookie in 1997 he played in 10 games, mostly on special teams, and didn't earn a start. In 1998, Phillips started three games and played in all 16. By 1999 he was entrenched.
