Donovan McNabb is currently a free agent.
The 35-year-old Syracuse grad, and six-time NFL Pro Bowler, has spent the offseason getting back into shape after a few years of piling on stifling girth and paunch. The once-elusive 240 pound scrambler, considered a proper heir to Randall Cunningham’s physical magic in Philadelphia, was relatively bloated in his disastrous runs through Washington and Minnesota. The Washington Post reported in May that McNabb has dropped fifteen to twenty pounds in the hopes of regaining his athletic prowess.
So far, there have been no takers.
Teams are filling their ninety man preseason rosters and gearing up for training camp. Barring an injury to a major starter, or a setback in the development process of a struggling youngster, it seems likely that McNabb may be waiting in vain for his next NFL opportunity.

Donovan McNabb is quickly turning into one of the NFL’s best sound bites. In a matter of just a few months, McNabb has done a fantastic job of tarnishing whatever legacy he had with some of the most absurd comments you will ever read a player say about himself.
Philadelphia Eagles fans have always seen the good and bad of Donovan McNabb. Unfortunately for us, the NFL media painted us as unappreciative, only giving national fans the good, and ignoring the polarizing remarks that McNabb would make to the local media every season. Thanks to Donovan himself, NFL fans all over the nation are now experiencing the Donovan McNabb only Philly fans can truly appreciate.
I have to give credit to the Philadelphia Eagles and Andy Reid. Over the course of McNabb’s tenure with the Eagles, the franchise obviously did a fantastic job ..click here to read more

Well, it seems like only a day or so ago that the New York Giants finished their miracle run and won the Super Bowl over the New England Patriots. The NFL off-season moves really fast though, and it is time for owners and GMs to get ready for Free Agency in a few short days, and the NFL Draft in late April.
After last season’s delay with the lockout, some teams failed to lock up some of their big time players, which makes this a pretty good bunch of talent that can be had this season. Yes free agency is filled with tons of names, and today I will be showing you some of the top names and what fate may await them on the market.
Let’s face it, from 32-1 every team in the league could use better talent at certain ..click here to read more

With Super Bowl XLVI in the books and not much on the NFL plate otherwise, I wanted to take time out to look into some potential things we could see in the 2012 NFL season. On this list you obviously won’t see Tom Brady or Eli Manning, but there could be some other interesting names moving, retiring, or just taking on a different role in 2012.
Now obviously this is an opinion-based story, but also some knowledge of the NFL goes into it. Some of these moves make great sense, some of it well just pure wishful thinking. In other words, don’t sweat it out fans if you see the name of one of your favorite players here. Also if you have anything to add, please feel free to comment at the end of this article. As always, thanks for reading!

It seems hard to believe that this will be the 46th time that the NFL will be bringing us a Super Bowl. 45 other games have been played and through the years we’ve seen a lot of stuff to make us salivate and wonder, “What can possibly top that?”
In the spirit of the big game coming up this Sunday between the AFC’s New England Patriots and the NFC’s New York Giants, I have decided to take us all down memory lane and look back at my top 10 best Super Bowls and look back at some other stuff that makes Super Sunday great.

Donovan McNabb in a recent interview claims that not only should the Chicago Bears have signed him, but they would have won with him. A pretty bold statement coming from a guy that has been exiled by three teams in two years coming off of a 1-5 record as a starter.
As a Philadelphia Eagles fan I welcome the continued delusional ranting of Donovan McNabb. For years, Philadelphia fans were told how unappreciative we were to have such a great team player lead our football team. In the last two years McNabb has done a fantastic job of exposing himself to the national media and audience as one of the biggest frauds in recent memory.
What always bugged me is how the national media always had his back. No matter how bad of a ..click here to read more

Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 4 in the National Football League!
– The Chicago Bears barely beat the Carolina Panthers in Week 4 as a game that look appeared to be getting away from their opponents suddenly got close (reoccurring theme in Week 4). Jay Cutler threw for 102 yards and the Bears got the victory basically on the feet of Matt Forte who ran for 205 yards on 25 carries. The Bears may be the worst 2-2 team in the NFL after having a rough time with the Panthers.
– Carolina is looking like a team who could be a year to more likely two years away from being competitive again in the NFL. As much as I hate to say it, Cam Newton is the real deal.
– Buffalo looked poised ..click here to read more

Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 2 in the National Football League!
– In last week’s blog I thought the Bills would give New England a run for their money but not get the “W” at the end of the day. I was partially as Buffalo did give them a run for their money but they ended up getting the “W” at the end of the game. Good win for Buffalo, happy they are 3-0 and atop the AFC East but I’m not a believer yet.
– Despite the loss New England is still one of the best teams in the AFC. The Patriots need setbacks like this to bring them back to earth from time ..click here to read more

Well, I bounced back, as promised! After going 7-9 in week one, yours truly was 12-4 in week two, with my effort buttressed by last minute wins by Tampa Bay and Buffalo. Cheers!
The NFL picture is finally beginning to take some shape, as we see the contenders (Green Bay, New England, New York Jets), pretenders (Kansas City, St. Louis, Minnesota), and surprises, both good (Detroit and Buffalo) and bad (Indianapolis). Of course, there’s still fifteen weeks to be played before we get to the post-season, so as Kevin Garnett once offered, “annnnneh-theeeng’s possssssaaaa-bbuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh”
And so, here are my rapid-fire picks. Feel free to, in honor of the New York Giants, flop to the ground and clutch your knee if the picks are coming too quickly.
Last week: 12-4
For the year: 19-13

For seventeen weeks last year, I did not have a losing week. Sure, there were some 8-8’s in there, but I generally performed well in my prognostications.
In 2011, I stumbled out of the gate.
Thanks to ineptitude by Pittsburgh, the Giants, Kansas City, and others, I found myself at 7-9, which is still good enough to win the NFC West. But that’s still not good enough for the rigorous standards that I hold for myself. Eric Gargiulo deserves better than 7-9, so I made sure to hit the stat lines and box scores harder this week to gain an edge. I vow that if I finish worse than 8-8 this week, I will bob for apples in a kiddie pool that Rex and Rob Ryan spent an hour wading naked in.
Okay, maybe I won’t go THAT far, but I do promise ..click here to read more

For those of you new to Camel Clutch Blog, or are merely blissfully unaware of the individuals who inhabit this very handsome blog, my name is Justin Henry, and I am the resident picker of games at this here establishment.
Last season, in 256 regular season games, I went 165-91, giving me a healthy 64% winning advantage. 64% is pretty good, to be honest. Hell, by modern Oakland Raider standards, it’s enough to warrant drool. A 64% approval rating is something Barack Obama can only achieve in this day and age by ordering Rush Limbaugh and Al Sharpton to play Russian Roulette.

This blog is Part 2 my 3-part series here at the Camel Clutch Blog where I preview the upcoming 2011-2012 NFL Season. In the first blog I looked at the AFC, in Part 2 we will look at the NFC and finally, in Part 3, we will look at the NFL Playoffs. Lets get too it and preview the NFC.
1. Philadelphia Eagles (11-5)
The Eagles had a tremendous offseason, so tremendous that their backup quarterback Vince Young deemed them the “dream team.” While I certainly agree that they look much better then they did last season, they are no “dream team.” The moniker as given by their backup quarterback could put a huge target on their back in the NFC East.
The NFC East is possibly the most competitive division in all of football right now. If the Eagles were in ..click here to read more
