What You Need to Know, Thursday Afternoon

("Need" is not necessarily the operative word on this one; find this morning's What You Need to Know for actual news.)

Deadspin introduces us to the heroes at, and fellow blogger Todd Jacobson gives us more on the Nats fantasy football draft. (How does Cordero take LaMont Jordan in front of Portis?) (Also, Todd was on this story way before my summary.) Maryland taxpayers were forced to pay for the Chevy Chase Bank Field and ATM Terminal at Byrd Stadium signs. Eastern Washington is getting $450,000 for being squashed by BCS champion West Virginia in Morgantown, where just one couch was burned last week.

RedskinReport is offering incredible odds on winning a replica jersey, Dan Pompei says The Moss Man is the 17th best player in the NFL (and doesn't agree with Portis that Sean Taylor is No. 1), Larry Dobrow runs through NFL stadium songs without mentioning Phil Collins, Todd Wright has the Skins missing the playoffs, Jason Whitlock is still on the Skins bandwagon (30 points this week, really?), Peter King has the Skins winning 19-13 and WPGC has its catchy preseason-bashing pro-Skins song.

Plus, this site is launching a populist revolution against college football's new clock rules; every time you check back, 500 more people have signed up.

Whitlock may have played too many downs at Ball State without his helmet on.

OTOH, he might be able to dust off his pads and make the Browns right now. I don't know if he can snap the ball, but I'm pretty sure he could occupy two down linemen.

Todd Jacobson should know by now it's Shaun: S-H-A-U-N.

Thanks for the mention Dan, but now you're going to have four very fired up guys when they see that more people have signed up.
