Howie Roseman isn’t to blame for the Philadelphia Eagles issues.
It’s amazing how quickly things change. It wasn’t even two seasons ago that Philadelphia Eagles vice president and general manager Howie Roseman was the best executive in the NFL, his team was the defending world champions, and Philly was enjoying their time as being seen as one of the most gifted rosters in all of professional football.
Back then, he was the executive vice president of football operations.
Fast forward to the most recent offseason. Fans were excited about the team’s depth. Philadelphia was entering a season where they were viewed as being healthier than they’ve ever been, and Philly was a legitimate Super Bowl contender.
Everyone was happy, and Howie Roseman was still a genius. That leads to a very basic question, one that no one seems to have an answer for.
How is it that, not even six months later, the same man who was seemingly seen by most of the NFL world as the man who gets things done and the man that built the Eagles’ championship roster is now also seen as a failure and as the man who’s forgotten how to do his job?
Let’s just take a look at five of his most recent moves and see how fair that theory is. What you’ll discover is Roseman’s done nothing wrong.
