If you’re an Eagles fan and frustrated by the fact that the Super Bowl is being played yet again tomorrow and your faves are nowhere near it, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan has some bad news:
No one with any football experience is in charge of the Birds!
Listen to what Caplan said on 97.5 the Fanatic last night.
Adam Caplan: “When he [owner Jeff Lurie, above] made the decision to fire the head coach and the VP of football operations, he didn’t think ‘Okay if I do this, who is gonna be Ed Marynowitz’s replacement?’ He didn’t have anyone in mind, clearly, because they didn’t bring anyone in. Not only are they not hiring anyone … teams don’t let people out before the draft because they don’t want them to give information to another team …”
Joe DeCamara: “What is in between Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman?”
AC: “Nobody. There’s no one else left.”
JD: “Who has the second most power behind Roseman, and besides Doug Pederson?”
AC: “Tom Donahoe I guess… there’s no one else left. This is the only NFL team in recent history that doesn’t have a general manager, a VP of football operations, and a college scouting director. Their front office is in turmoil as far as I’m concerned. You can’t go forward – and you’re gonna have to because they made this decision and there’s nothing they can do about it right now – … after the draft, I don’t care whatever is on their mind, the number one thing is to fix this front office … Jeffrey and Roseman have a lot of work to do to fix the football operations.”
