Maybe he’s just saying nice things about a guy he used to work with:

People went “ape bleep” for Howie in 2017 because he had an incredible year. Signing Nick Foles as a backup, getting Timmy Jernigan for nothing, trading for Jay Ajayi, adding free agents Chris Long, LeGarrette Blount, Patrick Robinson, and Stefen Wisniewski, etc. He deserved all the credit in the world back then because every single move he made worked out perfectly.
But that was two full seasons ago, and even with all the injury nonsense of 2018 and 2019, people still feel like there’s a window here to win another Super Bowl, especially in a NFC East featuring three new coaches. There are high standards in Philly, so that’s why people are reacting to Roseman the way they are.
Plus, we’re emotionally volatile, so nobody should be surprised by the draft backlash.
