THE PROPHECY.

Posted January 15, 2013

YES. Howie Roseman IS hurting us in the coaching search. It isn't doom and gloom. It isn't an unwillingness to move on. It isn't sour grapes because Andy is gone.

And it isn't just me.

Oh it was just me first. No doubt about that. I saw this train wreck coming and took a ton of BS for pointing it out. But now it seems that the notion that we may not get a good replacement is gaining some steam not only here in the Yard, but also in and around the NFL. 

On the 13th I posted this: http://www.yardbarker.com/forum/3/57/discussion/moron_the_coaching_search/12646828

A day later, Jason La Canfora posted this: http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/21553122/monday-observations-scrutiny-now-settling-on-shaky-eagles-gm

(Read them later. Stick with this one for now.)

A lot of the same stuff in both posts. And again, I said it first. Not because I'm a genius, but because this stuff is just plain, old, common sense; and as Jason said, and I'll paraphrase: If they win with the next guy, then everything is cool.

But now let me say something that hasn't been said by anyone yet: Our GM hog tying our ability to get the best Head Coach, also impacts the kind of assistants coaches this team will attract. So we won't be attracting the best minds/innovators to our team. This impacts Free Agent signings. This, unless the subsequent Drafts are better than the last 3, impacts how competitive we can be, when the talent goes other places in our division. Put bluntly: Get ready to endure some of what the Redskins fans have been dealing with. 

After a decade and a half of football relevancy, it would be hard for fans to take 6-10 and 7-9 type seasons. But unless Jeff Lurie decides to scale back Roseman's influence, or he get's incredibly lucky*,  a decade and half of 6-10 and 7-9 may be what we begin to see around here as a good season.

 

*(The Eagles will be fine if one or both of these things happen.)
