Storylines abound as the Philadelphia Eagles approach the 2021 offseason.

Those of you who feel like you can coach the Philadelphia Eagles or manage their professional franchise’s salary cap better than Doug Pederson or Howie Roseman simply because you can play the franchise Mode on Madden might want to pump the breaks a little.

Sure, some of what Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson do is hard to quantify, but you have to admit that they know more about how to do their jobs than most of the people that criticize them. That’s why they were hired to do those jobs in the first place.

Even still, as mentioned, some of this stuff shouldn’t be as hard to figure out as they make it look. It seems like the decision to kick a tying field goal rather than attempt yet another fourth-down or two-point conversion isn’t a difficult one to make. It also seems like, though none of us have any experience in managing an NFL team’s salary cap, it has to be like balancing one’s personal checking account or an office’s financial ledger.

The rules are simple. Don’t spend more money than you make, and for goodness sake, don’t spend more money than you’re allowed to.

Ladies and gentlemen, like it or not, the Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman marriage will carry on for another year at least. Even if you can find some joy in that, there isn’t a Birds fan on Planet Earth that has total confidence in their ability to turn this around. No one knows what will happen, but it’s fun to guess, isn’t it? Here are four bold predictions for the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2021 offseason.
