This is a bit long, so if your impatient don't bother reading...
I'm going to try and not jump the gun on the latest Bradley situation. Ok, maybe I will. Doesn't it seem every coach the Eagles have truly covented has either returned to their old situation or continued to look for a better situation. How can this be possible? We have an owner who will spend money and has shown a history of being loyal to his head coach. We have a fan base that bleeds green and sells out every game. We have a fairly new state of the art stadium and top notch practice facilities. Our coaching vacancy should be the type of opening that people are killing themselves to get.
Maybe it comes down to the perception of this franchise?
There are two perceptions I feel people who look at this franchise are confused about:
#1 - The front office structure is a mess. Over the last few years - Heckert gone. Banner gone. Reid gone. And all the while, no one outside of the franchise really knows who was actually calling the shots.
#2 - Howie Roseman is power hungry and way over his head. We have all seen articles on certain perceptions of him in the NFL. We also know that the Eagles record has been terrible since he was given power with the Eagles. But again this may just be perception. I personally believe his only major moves were during the 2012 Draft which at this time aren't bad and way too early to grade.
So I must ask the question.
Is Howie Roseman and the Front Office the major factor in our coaching vacancy not being the most attractive in the NFL?
