The Beetle mystery has been solved! Seems the beetle I was asking about is called a "Eastern Hercules Beetle". I can thank Scott from PA for the identification.
This beetle was on my back porch a few different times. He would hang out on one of my chairs for a day and leave only to show up again. This happened a few times. I took pictures the second time. He really is huge.
I havent seen it lately, so hopefully he found a better home than my porch chairs.
Here is a site with some great pics http://bugguide.net/node/view/4461
