A Tale of Two General Managers

Given the dynamic nature of the Philadelphia Eagles power structure in recent years, the jury is still deliberating on the effectiveness of Howie Roseman as the Eagles general manager. Having said that, I was struck by how Roseman considered Jeremy Maclin’s injury history [via Birds 24/7]:

“When you study the two ACLs, you see it in guys who have one that eventually they have another ACL injury at some point in time,” he said. “Sometimes it balances out guys and sometimes it’s just the nature of a freak injury. And so we went back then and looked at also ACLs in receivers that are 26 and under and looked at the research on those guys and where they came out next year, and it was all really positive. We put that together with our medical reports and we just felt like this was the right move for our football team.”

“Sometimes anatomy is just anatomy.”
