Does Howie Roseman Hurt Our Chances To Find A New Coach?

Posted January 11, 2013
The reality is Howie Roseman has risen from the ashes of what is left of the Eagles front office as the clear winner of the recent power struggles within the organization. There were plenty of them from Roseman not talking with scouts, Joe Banner getting out of doge, Reid making moves for power, and several mid level people fired within the organization and all of that happened just last year. The Eagles put on a front like they had it all together, but in reality the front office were in as much disarray as the team was on the field. Now the team has moved on from the madness that needed to be changed, but with Roseman becoming the clear cut winner, the Eagles have left themselves without a "football guy" in the front office, and I don't think football people are willing to work with him. The reports that Bill Belichick isn't fond of Roseman shouldn't be all that surprising, considering the fact Andy and Bill are good friends. I don't think it's a coincidence the Eagles lost out on three potential candidates with Belichick connections. Am I the only person who found it strange how Lurie went out his way to absolve Roseman of two of the previous three drafts, implicate Banner, and Reid as the culprits, and gave Roseman all the credit for the last draft despite having the GM title for the past three seasons? WIP has Roseman lauding over Danny Watkins after the draft on like a continuous loop these days. Let's also not forget the terrible free agency decisions, and how some of the resignings seemed to have blown up in the Eagles faces lately. None of those moves have been the types of moves that Banner or Reid would have made in their entire tenure in Philly. Now we have the Eagles current coaching search. I don't think there is a chance in the world a former Super Bowl winning coach will be on the sidelines for the Eagles come September, because I can't see the Eagles willing to give that person enough power. The coach the Eagles will choose will be someone who is either a college guy, an assistant who is desperate for a chance, or a guy recently fired like Lovie Smith or Norv Turner. Lovie wouldn't be terrible, but Norv.... With that being the case, I still think the Eagles can get a solid coach. It may not be one of the big named splashes, but there are some assistants out there who could be the guy who can take this team to the next level. Despite all of his new power, Roseman had better watch out. He is now in the eye of the storm. Everyone will be watching him on this. He will be the goat if this draft fails. He will be the guy blamed if the Eagles chose the wrong coach despite the fact he's only one guy in the three man team. He's now the face of the franchise and the next guy people will demand to be removed if things turn out poorly. For his sake and ours as Eagles fans I surely hope he succeeds.
