NEWSMAKERS WHO’S MAKING HEADLINES THIS WEEK

Chase Utley

He has a World Series record-tying five homers with at least one more game to go; the MVP at this point, win or lose.

Allen Iverson

He has played one game for the Memphis Grizzlies, and he came off the bench. And he’s already ticked off about it.

Brett Favre

Tossed four touchdown passes against the Packers to earn his first win at Lambeau Field as a visitor.

Brandon Spikes

Florida linebacker suspended by Urban Meyer for a mere half of the next game after his eye-gouging incident.

Jimmie Johnson

Stayed out of trouble at Talladega to earn a top-10 finish and stay atop the NASCAR points lead with three races left.

TWT FIVE BETTER WAYS FOR DAN SNYDER TO APOLOGIZE TO REDSKINS FANS

1. Remove the ban on signs at FedEx Field - Apparently The Danny didn’t realize that suppressing the opinions of fans in the nation’s capital might be received poorly.

2. Fire Vinny Cerrato - The Redskins drafted Devin Thomas and Fred Davis ahead of DeSean Jackson in 2008.

3. Hire a general manager - Or anyone who knows that hiring someone as an offensive coordinator, then naming him head coach, makes the franchise look amateurish.

4. Don’t go into hiding during the season - Surely there’s a middle ground between Mark Cuban and Snyder’s approach of not speaking to the media during the season… except during charity events without beat writers present.

5. Restore Jim Zorn’s playcalling duties - Maybe potential coaches like Mike Holmgren won’t be driven away by the Redskins’ heavy-handed tactics.

HE SAID WHAT?

“Go look at my resume, and that will show you that I’m not a sixth man. I don’t think it has anything to do with me being selfish. It’s just who I am.”
