NFL Insider Adam Caplan, whose voice just does not match his face, was on with Joe “The Lurker” DeCamara for his weekly pow-wow on 97.5 The Fanatic last night and explained how laughable and sad the Eagles’ current front office situation is:
Adam Caplan: “When he 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.”
Good thing they got a jump on things by firing the head coach a week (year?) early.
