NFL Training Camps now OPEN

It's that wonderful time of year again, when the dog days of summer can officially begin: NFL Training Camps are now OPEN! It's been 6 grueling months since we saw New York Giants' WR David Tyree make that acrobatic catch from QB Eli Manning to upset the undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. It's been 3 long months since we saw OT Jake Long become the #1 overall pick for the Miami Dolphins in the 2008 NFL Draft. And it's been only 4 days since we've heard anything remotely new on the status of QB Brett Favre.

It's time for football again...

Over the next six weeks, we will have: players fighting for their jobs, teams trying to find their starting quarterbacks, rookies getting hazed, meaningless preseason games, fantasy football drafts, season ending injuries, and enough speculation to make your head spin!

Gone are: QB Steve McNair (Ravens), DT Warren Sapp (Raiders), DE Bryant Young (49ers), DE Michael Strahan (Giants), OG Larry Allen (49ers), and OT Jonathon Ogden (Ravens)

New faces in new places: DE Jared Allen (Vikings), OG Alan Faneca (Jets), WR Issac Bruce (49ers), WR Bernard Berrian (Vikings), DE Jason Taylor (Redskins), TE Jeremy Shockey (Saints), DeAngelo Hall (Raiders), LB Zach Thomas (Cowboys), LB Jonathon Vilma (Saints), DE Justin Smith (49ers), CB Asante Samuel (Eagles), TE Alge Crumpler (Titans), and CB Adam "Pacman" Jones (Cowboys)

Teams unsure of the QB position: Chiefs, Ravens, Bills, Jets, Dolphins, 49ers, Cardinals, Vikings, Bears, and Falcons

Teams with new Head Coaches: Ravens, Falcons, Redskins, and Dolphins

The 2008 NFL season is finally here....
