Says Sheil Kapadia on The Athletic:
I think it’s totally fair to question the path Howie Roseman and the organization chose this offseason.
They invested in the defense with the Darius Slay trade and the Javon Hargrave signing. They passed on opportunities to add veteran, proven wide receivers. And I was not a fan of the Jalen Hurts pick. I thought the Eagles should have gone all-in on the passing game this offseason and focused on giving Wentz every chance possible to be successful.
Jim Schwartz could have gotten the defense to competency even if the personnel wasn’t great. This isn’t a hindsight take based on one game. It’s what I wrote throughout the offseason in the links above. That doesn’t mean I was right, but it’s how I felt, and it’s how I still feel.
Roseman did an excellent job of cleaning up Chip Kelly’s mess and delivered the Eagles a Super Bowl. But this team is 18-15 in the regular season since winning the title, and it’s not like the Eagles have a lot of young talent on the roster.
