Howie Roseman talks about rebuilding vs. retooling
The Philadelphia Eagles have enjoyed success with general manager Howie Roseman in their front office. The Eagles won the Super Bowl for the 2018 season. Five seasons later, the Eagles returned to the Super Bowl with a team led by a different head coach and quarterback. Jalen Hurts talent should help the Eagles’ success be more sustainable than the 2018 team, which was led by quarterback Nick Foles. Roseman explained the art of quickly rebuilding winners recently.
Roseman was a guest on the New Heights Podcast with Jason and Travis Kelce this week. He explained the difference between rooting and rebuilding and how the team was able to quickly mend after Andy Reid’s tenure via the 2013 draft:
“But when you bottom out like that, it actually allows you to flip it quicker.
Because if you just have a year where you win six, seven, eight games and you’re picking in the middle of the draft, it’s hard to really change your team. When you’re picking, and we had the fourth pick in the 2013 draft and we got Lane [Johnson], changed our team. Then we come back in the second round, and we got Zach [Ertz], changed our team, right? Because you’re not just picking at the top of the first round, you’re picking at the top of every round. And so for us, that moment changed our team, right, the free agents we signed in that moment, and we were able to do it quicker.”
While Howie Roseman might not like to say rebuild, he and the Eagles have benefited from using the system to make the team a Super Bowl contender.
