For weeks now, everywhere I turn I hear about how the Philadelphia Eagles should fire Howie Roseman along with Andy Reid and everyone else at season’s end.  I also hear a lot of people seemingly angry at Jeff Lurie for not coming out and addressing the media about the state of the franchise (or firing Reid before the end of the year). Just this morning, these two subjects were all the rage on sports radio 94WIP.  However, it’s not just there I’ve heard these things, but also on Twitter and other online web sites.

I don't want some hotshot lawyer making football decisions he can play with the contracts, but I want a football guy evaluating players and making the football decisions. That is how the successful teams with Super Bowl rings are run.
