The nightmare in Philadelphia


Recommended Posts

 Inside the Eagles downfall under Jeffrey Lurie and Howie Roseman (subscription required)

You might think to yourself that this story isn't Panthers related, and directly speaking, it isn't.

But truth be told, it paints a pretty disturbing portrait of what could have been if we were still under Jerry Richardson and Marty Hurney.

And besides that, it's compelling reading. Hell, you might even find yourself feeling sorry for Eagle fans.

We've had Hurney twice. Isn't that enough sorrow for any NFL fan?

Lurie is a very hands-on owner who doesn't know what he's doing but thinks he does.

Roseman is a colossal ass kisser who's better at selling himself to Lurie than he is at making any actual football decisions.

Pederson was grilled, questioned and criticized weekly (even after the games they won) by Lurie, Roseman and their head analytics guy 

And to top it all off, they're letting their analytics department override the coaching staff and personnel people on football decisions.

Honestly, it's probably pretty close to what we would have gotten here if Tepper had won the argument to hire a "non-traditional" GM.

We really dodged a bullet there.

Have said it before: One of the worst things you can have in any organization is a situation where the guy in charge who believes he's the smartest person in the room...is anything but.

The Eagles have that squared.

Roseman is the new Easterby.

They still won a SB with that combo.
