Great questions for McNabb


Damon Weaver is 11 years old. He's interviewed Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Dwayne Wade.

Last week, he got his chance with some NFL players at the Pro Bowl, and the little guy did not disappoint.

His interview with Donovan McNabb is embedded below, and if it does not provide at least four laugh-out-loud moments, well, you probably don't have a sense of humor.

I don't want to give anything away, but take notice of DeSean Jackson and Drew Rosenhaus walking by after one of the questions.

I first saw the clip at about 6:30 Saturday night and have said "Tell me about your childhood" about 300 times since then. Great job by Damon.

Asante Samuel has some advice for his former Patriots teammate Vince Wilfork.

“I don’t think they care about you, in my opinion,” Samuel said last week, per the Boston Globe. “They didn’t care about me. So do what’s best for you and your family.”

These things should never get personal, but they do. For example, I assume Samuel thinks the Eagles care about him since they ponied up over $57M for his services. But I wonder if Sheldon Brown thinks the Eagles care about him?

Teams make decisions that are best for them. Players make decisions that are best for them. That's just how it is. There are exceptions, but those instances are rare.

Samuel was asked if the Patriots' approach could affect their ability to lure free agents in the future.

“From my end, it would, definitely,” Samuel said. “But they’ve got their own mind-set. The way they treat people is not something I agree with. But everybody has their own opinion.”
