Ray Didinger: Howie Roseman Pulled Me Aside to Ask if I Liked Wentz or Goff

Photo Credit: Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

I feel like people are gonna rag on Howie for this, but I like it: According to Ray Didinger, Howie pulled him aside after he and Doug Pederson spoke to the media this week to ask which top of the draft prospected QB he like better: Carson Wentz or Jared Goff?

“There are some people that still say the Rams haven’t decided between the two… I get the feeling the Eagles like Wentz , [Goff going first means] there will be a number of teams [trying to move up to get him] … It’s funny, Howie Rosmean did his briefing on Monday …When it was over, Howie asked me off to the side, he said, ‘Do you like Goff or Wentz?’ He asked me. I said I like Goff.”

Sure, asking a media member who often appears on the loudest morning show known to man which top-tier QB he prefers probably isn’t the best idea. But being the GM is all about asking the smartest people in the room what they think, taking all of that into consideration, and making a decision. And with Howie, Doug, and assembled media? Ray was the smartest guy in that room.

Kyle: Hey remember all those reports about the gutted Eagles front office with virtually no top scouting talent after Doug and Howie? So you’re surprised Howie felt compelled to ask basically a member of the local media for his thoughts on the top QB in the draft? God Ray help us all.

    Heard Ray diddy loves sucking on tities

    • Captain Obvious April 20, 2016 at 9:16 am

      Assuming you mean “titties” then who doesn’t?

      • Kyle's one friend that's not gay April 20, 2016 at 9:57 am

        I can name a few…

        • Mike missanelli April 20, 2016 at 10:35 am

          “I can name a few…” Starting with me.

      • Kylo Ren April 20, 2016 at 11:18 am

        Your mom and dad.

      • jim j bullock April 20, 2016 at 1:02 pm

        I hate titties

      Ray Diddy is one of the most respected talent experts on the planet. There is a reason he is a Hall of Famer. The man knows the game better than anyone. Ofcourse Howie taps into his skills. Remember when Ray Diddy said that Kevin Kolb has a very strong arm? But then his arm turned out to be one of the weakest in NFL history?

        Well it looks like my man Ted Cruz is finished. So I will throw my support to Donald Trump this Tuesday for our PA primary. Anyone but Hillary.

      • Second Opinion April 20, 2016 at 9:38 am

        I remember in 2014, Cataldi asked Didinger who was a better coach……Kelly or Reid. Didinger said when it was all over, Kelly would have a overall more positive impact and would end up a better coach than Reid. HE SAID IT !

        • fm April 20, 2016 at 11:04 am

          No, he didn’t. If you listened to Ray he always was skeptical of Chip.

          That nonsense is something that Sal Paleontologist might spew.

          • Syle Kcott April 20, 2016 at 11:23 am

            WRONG ANSWER BlTCH!

      • Fred boom April 20, 2016 at 10:01 am

        He’s in the HoF for being a journalist, not a GM/talent evaluator.

        • fm April 20, 2016 at 11:06 am

          He’s a bright guy whose worked at NFL Films for years. Kyle dismissing him is typical millennial douchebaggery. When is this site being renamed “Douche with a Blog?”

          • Fred boom April 20, 2016 at 12:49 pm

            Working at NFL Films don’t mean squat. Ray is an analyst. He’s good at telling you what happened after he watched the film and knows the results.

      • Re Dolli April 20, 2016 at 11:19 am

        Yeah…sure I love how Ray Diddy’s game predication are maybe 40% correct every year.

      • Johnny Marks hearts Dr. Glat April 20, 2016 at 5:14 pm

        I also remember Didinger saying Eddie Royal would be a better WR than DeSean ….

    • Phil from Mount Airy April 20, 2016 at 9:46 am

      Yeah, I heard that too. Word around the office is he has seen Ryea Houghes assets on more than one occasion.

    • Ray Diddinger. April 20, 2016 at 11:24 am

      I hate all holidays and the people who celebrate them.
      I pawned my HOF plaque last year for 37$.

    • Ray Diddy Pokes my Aunt April 21, 2016 at 7:08 am

      And she says his diddy is dark green and slightly bent

  • Jack Knoff April 20, 2016 at 9:08 am

    Im ok with this. A good leader trusts the opinion of other leaders.

  • Bradford's hair April 20, 2016 at 9:17 am

    Unless they’re not going to draft a qb at all and they’re trading up for Tunsil.

  • Crossing Cuck April 20, 2016 at 9:40 am

    Yeah ask the guy who wanted to trade back and get Cade McNown

    • christopher April 20, 2016 at 9:46 am

      It’s almost as if drafting college players isn’t a predictable science!

      • christopher April 20, 2016 at 9:46 am

        Oh…you’re a Trump supporter. That explains the lack of brain power I sense from you. 🙂

  • Hollis Thomas April 20, 2016 at 9:59 am

    Nothing on the 3-way between Didinger, Cindy Webster, and Reyta Huges

    • Laura Richman April 20, 2016 at 10:03 am

      Who’s more washed-up – Cindy Webster, or Reyta Huges? Discuss.

      • Lt Dan April 20, 2016 at 11:20 am

        I think maybe your english teacher is all washed up.
        Learn to spell Gump!

        • why don't you April 20, 2016 at 12:17 pm

          Try and spell Reyta Huges name correctly and see what happens to you.

      • Joseph April 20, 2016 at 1:18 pm

        Reyta!

        • Sir Paul April 20, 2016 at 4:29 pm

  • John Missanelli OBGYN April 20, 2016 at 1:16 pm

    Nothing on Josh Innes crying on air yesterday? If he wanted sympathy, he ain’t gonna find it here!!!

    • Flat Ronnie April 20, 2016 at 1:19 pm

      Du, it was fake. He trolled you.

  • AL Tru April 20, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    Me and Didinger went to the same high school.

  • Phil from Mt. Airy April 20, 2016 at 6:23 pm

    Ray Didinger is a contrary indicator. If Howie Roseman pulled him aside and asked his opinion of two college QBs, it was probably so Howie could safely go the other direction knowing “Ray Diddy’s” track record on anything related to football.

    • Fred boom April 20, 2016 at 7:17 pm

      Good point. Remember, Ray Diddy wanted Ricky Williams!!!
