HE SAID WHAT?

“Well, who’s going to turn down that money? I’m not stupid. I mean, I didn’t go to college, but I’ve got a lot of common sense.”

NEWSMAKERS WHO’S MAKING HEADLINES THIS WEEK

Tim Tebow

Who knew he could get injured? Or that he wouldn’t just heal his concussed head himself? Fortunately for the Gators, they get a week off.

President Obama

He’s putting his credibility and reputation on the line by going to Copenhagen to show support for Chicago’s 2016 Olympic bid.

Matthew Stafford

He was not nearly as stupendous as the Fox announcers made him out to be, but the rookie QB showed some moxie by leading the Lions to a rare victory.

Ben Roethlisberger

The Steelers are 1-2, so of course their quarterback is going to spend next Monday hosting WWE’s “Monday Night Raw.”

Kimbo Slice

Who knows how it will end, but UFC gets its payoff Wednesday when the infamous street brawler makes his debut on “The Ultimate Fighter.”

TWT FIVE MOST WINNABLE GAMES LEFT ON THE REDSKINS’ SCHEDULE

1. Oakland, Week 14 — The Raiders look like they’re up to their same old tricks.

2. Tampa Bay, Week 4 — They’re facing a woeful club at FedEx Field with a small-school QB making his first start.

3. Kansas City, Week 6 — It’s at FedEx instead of Arrowhead, which is huge if the Redskins can silence the boo birds.

4. Dallas, Week 16 — The Cowboys have been terrible late in the season the past two years.

5. San Diego, Week 17 — In theory, the Chargers will have wrapped up a playoff spot and will have nothing to play for. But in theory, the Redskins should have beaten the Lions.
