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. Simply put, I just don’t agree with either notion and frankly, I don’t understand why people feel this way if they were to look at things with a little bit of logic. First, let’s take a look at Howie Roseman… The main reason I’ve heard that he should be fired is for poor drafting.  Roseman was promoted to General Manager in 2010 and that was the first draft where he was running the show (for the most part). First off, the man is young and still a novice at his trade.  Secon...

  • Everything starts at the top and ends up at the bottom!

    Enough said!
  • So with the drafts you are saying he was 1/3, which means 33% of his drafts were good to 66% being bad. You can not win in this league blowing 2/3rds of your drafts. In addition, it is now out there that the Washburn and Wide Nine failure was orchestrated by Roseman. This was a colossal failure and prevented Reid from getting a legitimate defensive coordinator because no one would come with the D-Line coach and scheme in place. It also undermined Castillo. 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.
