THURSDAY’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION

Time to see whether Miami is for real in the ACC as the Hurricanes host Paul Johnson’s Georgia Tech. 7:30 p.m., ESPN

LOCAL POWER RANKINGS ” WHO’S GENERATING BUZZ IN THE D.C. AREA?

GILBERT ARENAS

Agent Zero said he’s ready to go, but let’s see how the knee feels after his first stretch of four games in five nights.

AL GROH

Home losses to William & Mary and TCU have put Groh on the hot seat, which is deserved because of a stretch of mediocrity.

JASON CAMPBELL

He and his mates better not sleep on the St. Louis defense, which had three first-quarter takeaways last week at Seattle.

ALEX OVECHKIN

Times No. 8 has been on the cover of a hockey video game: two. Times Sidney Crosby has reached the Stanley Cup Finals: two.

LONDON FLETCHER

The Redskins linebacker recorded 18 tackles in Week 1, but it’s not a great sign if he has to make that many every game.

TWITTER FEEDBACK

Sam Rosen and Tim Ryan working Redskins game. Who? Is that the bottom of the barrel or what?” - @MuddyLakeCc

O’Halloran’s response: Last week, the Redskins were the primary doubleheader game on Fox with the No. 1 crew of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.

Mostly because of the opponent (St. Louis), the Redskins are one of five 1 p.m. starts on Fox this week. New Orleans-Philadelphia is the main game with Buck and Aikman; according to one coverage map, Rams-Redskins is the third early game, also behind Minnesota-Detroit.

But Rosen and Ryan are a more than competent duo. Ryan is underrated because he talks a lot about offensive/defensive line play, which is beneficial because that part of the game is often ignored.
