3. You can’t prepare for injuries or predict them.
It’s easy to find fault with what’s going on with the defensive line now, but let’s all hit the rewind button for a second. Who thought that signing Malik Jackson or re-signing Timmy Jernigan was a bad idea? If you said no one, you’re correct.
What’s the argument following that one? Was Howie Roseman supposed to know that Jackson and Jernigan were going to get hurt?
4. Well, he did lock up his franchise signal-caller.
While the Dallas Cowboys treat everything like a circus, the Eagles have done a good job of moving in silence. Philly’s general manager extended his franchise signal-caller with a four-year, $128 million add on that included $107 million guaranteed, and no one even knew he was working on it.
One thing that can be said about Roseman is he finds a way to keep the important pieces. The Eagles are struggling, but Carson Wentz has looked every bit the MVP-level talent that everyone’s said he’s capable of being. Now if the other ten men on offense play up to their potential and do so in every game, this offense will be in business.
