Beast chat begins at high noon

It's time to take a break from your tournament brackets and focus on the NFC East. Yes, I know many of you want to ask me about the No. 3 seed in the South, but we need to talk some football.

Since we last met, the Redskins have signed troubled running back Larry Johnson, the Giants landed quarterback Jim Sorgi, the Eagles visited with two running backs and the Cowboys hosted a Manny Pacquiao fight. We can also discuss what the Redskins are planning to do at No. 4 overall, which is part of today's "Big Question" on the ESPN.com blog network (1 p.m. ET).

If you click here, you can participate in one of the fastest-growing weekly chats from the SportsNation family. We're expecting unusually large crowds today, so plan on showing up early. I've been known to answer the first five questions in deference to punctuality.

Now let me suggest reading Andy Katz's breakdown of the South Regional.
