What You Need to Know, in Fewer Than 200 Words, Thursday Morning

Jon Jansen says HGH use is increasing in the NFofL. Fred Smoot wants to give you a sour taste but his receivers are looking dodgy. Dan Daly takes a historical look at the QB-by-committee that has made a Vikings blogger jealous. USA Today thinks T.J. Duckett "could ruin" Portis's fantasy value (no way), while Portis (whose status could depend on whether he practices today, scroll down) thinks Sean Taylor is the best player in the NFL. Also, MNF will feature a massive flag, and division winners tend to win in Week 1 (scroll down). (More predictions: 9-7, last place, last place, three-point Week 1 winner, 11-point winner, an overhyped league? Nah.

Terps safety Marcus Wimbush has legal issues, Hokies LB Xavier Adibi fined by his coach for a penalty while Va. Tech fans faced 20-25 minute lines last Saturday. Also, UVA still needs a punter (don't we all). Steve Slaton for Heisman (insider)? Nats farm system is "replenished, to a degree," and the Nats' dramatic win has TLR steamed. GW's Danilo Pinnock signs with the Lakers, the Hoyas will play Oral Roberts, and Georgetown fans are not pleased.

Dude, you need to do a Guardian-style MBM report during tonight's Steelers-Dolphins game. Or at least check out the Post's ability to deliver a true chat-style MBM feed (and not the pathetic blog-style pseudo MBM posts that we were subjected to during the World Cup). Not saying you'd get much email traffic on such short notice, but it'd catch on for upcoming MNF games (especially the Skins game this coming Monday). Who knows, you could get better ratings/reviews than Kornheiser.

"better ratings/reviews than Kornheiser"

Well, at least from Paul Farhi.

As for Jansen's comments, you mean those guys aren't getting to 330 pound on just beer and pizza? I'm shocked.

No comments about United getting bounced from the US Open Cup last night? Good, maybe it didn't happen.
