We are under the one month window before the 2012 NFL season, which has all of our writers here at The Waiver Wire gearing up for another year of debates, poorly made bets and trash-talking. This year, we’ve decided to break down the season-to-be division by division. We will preview all eight divisions and pick our division winners, likely wild cards for both the AFC and NFC, and even which teams will be lining up for the Matt Barkley 2013 Draft Sweepstakes.
It is maybe the most competitive division in all of football, and Greg Kaplan and Vinny Ginardi have the pleasure of trying to break down the heated race to the top. Will the Eagles be able to put it all together for a full season? Will the defending Super Bowl champion Giants even be favored to win the division one year later? Who will come out on top? Look no further, we have the answer…

Eli Manning says that brother Peyton is the better quarterback. There wasn't a debate in the past, but there may be one now.
The New York Giants will officially waive safety/cornerback Janzen Jackson on Monday, reports Paul Dottino of WFAN.
Jackson was signed as an undrafted free agent out of McNeese State in late April, and was considered an early favorite to surprise and make the 53-man roster. However, after struggling in camp, Big Blue has decided to go in a different direction.
This Saturday, the New York Giants will take on the New York Jets in week two of the preseason, and already Tim Tebow has dominated the chatter. Then again, is anyone really surprised? The Gang Green backup quarterback has been the center of attention since being traded from the Denver Broncos in late March, and recently had an entire week of SportsCenter devoted to him.
Jordan Black is eating his way back into the NFL.
The offensive lineman is making a comeback after spending a year away from the game and losing some weight - because he thought he was retired.
But a rash of injuries had the Washington Redskins calling. He signed a couple of weeks ago, and on Tuesday he found himself playing first-team left tackle, responsible for protecting Robert...
Eli Manning has won two Super Bowls. Peyton Manning has only won one. By the numbers, you could easily make the argument that Peyton is a better quarterback than Eli. Those who know the game of football would likely make this argument, having watched Peyton light up the stat sheet for 13 years prior to last season. Eli’s stats may not stack up, but he is still only 31 years old...
New York Giants defensive tackle Shaun Rogers is being treated for a blood clot in his left calf.
The Giants announced Tuesday that the 12-year veteran was seen by orthopedic surgeon Russell Warren and vascular surgeon John Karwowaki on Monday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
Rogers experienced swelling in his lower leg after playing in the preseason opener Friday...
Whether you are a Redskins fan or not, it’s becoming difficult not to like rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. The 2011 Heisman Trophy winner first raised eyebrows when his obsession for socks went mainstream at the Heisman ceremony and Griffin wore a pair with a Superman cape hanging from them. Apparently Griffin’s obsession for superheroes [...]
The NFC East has been one of the hardest fought out divisions in the league for years, with the division champion often times not being clear until the final game of the season has been played. This division also boasts a couple of the league’s most disappointing teams of late, those being the Cowboys and [...]

According to Chris Russell of ESPN 980 in Washington D.C., Redskins running back Roy Helu will likely miss this week’s preseason game against the Bears.
Roy Helu is very likely out, per Mike Shanahan for Chicago

Helu has been fighting through Achilles tendonitis. The best for him to do is rest his Achilles and hope...
Add the NFL’s replacement refs to the list of many things McKayla Maroney is not impressed with.
Over the last week I’ve heard a few professional writers who shalt remain nameless complain that people are being too hard on the replacement refs and that they will get better. I’m surprised to hear this line of thinking because we have NO REASON to believe that that’s true...
Giants defensive end Justin Tuck told the New York Post that he thought about retiring last season.
“The Giants defensive captain revealed to The Post exclusively Tuesday that at the depth of his mental/emotional despair, at a time when donning his No. 91 with only one good shoulder at his disposal wracked him with a sense of guilt he wasn’t helping his Giants, he contemplated...
