The real job spun up with a vengeance this week. Not enough time to finish a couple things I'm working on.
Couple funny quotes in McLane's piece on Roseman:
"He's obviously their guy," one NFL general manager said. "He knows his stuff. It's not like the Eagles are promoting some guy off the street. He's become more involved in personnel matters and looks to have a keen eye for talent."
So, would that be Heckert? Who else knows what kind of eye he has for talent?
"I see the talent level on those teams," Roseman said. "It's very high, obviously, on both sides of the ball. I think that's important. It goes back to great coaching, and we have to make sure our talent level is real high."
Still need some work on those cliches. Maybe McD could lend him some reading material.
Lastly, this is an honor with increasingly disqualifying criteria:
This year, three Eagles were named to the All-Joe Team - tight end Brent Celek, offensive tackle Winston Justice and wide receiver Jason Avant. The only prerequisite for being an All-Joe member is the player cannot have ever been named to a Pro Bowl.
Since the Pro Bowl is approaching something like seventh alternate at a few positions, future All-Joe selections are going to feel about as special as being a quarterfinalist in the NIT.
