Consider yourselves warned. If you have plans of making your way to a Philadelphia Eagles game and expressing any feelings that you may have about the job that their vice president/general manager Howie Roseman has done, you may want to choose your words wisely.
Here’s one of those moments that we could have ignored but chose not to. This one’s just too doggone interesting. Ahead of Philly’s Thursday Night Football game versus the Houston Texans, Howie, who usually steers clear of addressing thoughts and theories about his approval rating elected instead to have some fun and clap back at a fan.
Put the women and children to bed. This one isn’t for the faint heart or virgin ears. We apologize in advance to those of you who may be offended by strong language, but before giving this one a watch, remember that you were warned.
In all seriousness. We have no issues with that at all. He deserves that. Yes, we all know that he was joking around there too, but let’s be honest. He’s wanted to say that for a while.
Though often the subject of criticism, Howie Roseman is on a winning streak.
Here’s a confession. Though we would have loved to have done so, we have never had the opportunity to speak with Howie Roseman about Chip Kelly’s tenure as Eagles head coach and ask him his feelings about the time Chip confined him to the equipment room.
It may seem like there isn’t much to discuss there. Then again, there are times when it becomes easy to wonder if that lit the fire under Howie to become the driven and, if we’re being honest, sometimes micromanaging G.M. that he’s grown into. There’s a part of Howie’s management style that leads one to the theory that he has no plans of finding himself in that position again.
Perhaps Jason Kelce put it best. When Chip Kelly was gone and Roseman was restored to power we met “a different Howie Roseman”.
Sure, he’s nailed draft picks and missed on a few. Sure, he’s done a good job of cleaning up messes and putting out fires that, if we’re being honest, are of his own doing. Here’s where we can agree though. This is still the NFL’s best general manager.
It’s hard to deny that. More often than not, he’s proven that, and ladies and gentlemen, we have to give credit where it’s due. The Eagles wouldn’t be in the position that they are in had it not been for his efforts. Period… Point blank… End of sentence.
