Something needs to be done now!
A general manager isn’t going to be perfect, not by a long shot, but there were signs of optimism, at least in the beginning. Roseman traded a sixth-round compensatory selection back in March to get DeSean Jackson and a seventh-round draft choice. He also made some other moves, including the signing of Malik Jackson, which, at the time made some believe Philly had a solid roster. Roseman has tried to bring in younger blood, and his efforts didn’t go unnoticed.
Reuben Frank even made mention of that before the Patriots’ game.
"What’s important is that it looks like Roseman finally understands that the roster he put together was too old, that guys like (Johnathan) Cyprien, (Zach) Brown and (Andrew) Sendejo) were mistakes, and that if the Eagles are going to be a winning franchise for the next five years they must continue the pattern of getting younger that he’s started these last few weeks."
Pederson needs to face the music for the choices he’s making with personnel and play calling. The Eagles are an injury-riddled team and against the Patriots, they completely abandoned the run game again after the pats went up on the scoreboard and Lane Johnson suffered an injury.
Pederson’s response after the loss was one of disappointment, but that tone could become more common during the rest of the season if things don’t pick up or turn around.
