Howie roseman thinks some people don’t respect the legitimacy of the eagles’ super bowl run, which fuels him to win another – bleeding green nation i gas shares

And so we come back [to Philadelphia on] Monday night, and I wake up Tuesday morning, and I have this fire. And I drive here [to the NovaCare Complex] and I call Joe Douglas and I go ‘We are six weeks behind every other team. We’ve got 14 free agents. We’re going to get our assed kicked if we don’t get to work right now.’

I really believe people think we just had a nice run. ‘Eh, they just had a nice run, they got hot at the right time.’ And Coach [Doug Pederson] believes that. Jeffrey [Lurie] believes that. So the fire within all of us, it’s unbelievable that this city has a Lombardi Trophy, but getting the next one is really on the forefront. And how are we going to do that?

I’m telling you, I want to promise the fans that we are not just sitting here and trying to pat ourselves on the back. We are trying to do as much as possible to continue to have these great moments for our fans and our city. And we’ve got determination, man. Same determination from the first one. Trying to get a second one.

Talk is cheap, but Roseman’s words have been backed up by his actions. The Eagles haven’t taken their foot off the gas pedal. They traded for Michael Bennett, they extended Nigel Bradham, they added Mike Wallace, they signed Haloti Ngata, they re-signed Darren Sproles, and so on. The Eagles are clearly gearing up for another run.

You should really check out the entire Roseman interview because the Morning Show touched on a number of topics with him, such as being on the Goldbergs, Jason Kelce’s parade speech, the Eagles’ cohabitation matrix, the greatness of Carson Wentz, Nick Foles getting a reworked contract, and more.

ROSEMAN: When we were at 32, and we need to get more picks, and we need to get more high picks anyway we can, so we were at 32, there was a small group of guys that we were looking at that we would’ve taken at 32, and he was there. And they started coming off the board. And we were really surprised that he was still available. And so, we decided that we have to just go up and get him. Make sure that, because we felt he could go at any pick really when the draft started on Friday night. We really weren’t expecting him to be there even within shooting range for us. I think, for us, we saw that any team could take him at that time …

But this guy, this guy’s a freak. And you think about with Coach, with 12 personnel, with Zach Ertz, and Dallas, and I’ll tell you what, what’ve got some young tight ends that are looking good right now, too. It’s just a different look for our offense that we had last year. That’s what’s fun, working with Coach. He’s constantly looking for ways to get guys open and to have matchups and so we have the receivers and tight ends and running backs, we’ve got our offensive line back. We were talking about this yesterday, just the team that was on the field in the Super Bowl, trying to be better than that team, and it’s exciting stuff. With our depth chart, obviously, it’s all gotta gel, and we gotta make sure everybody’s healthy.

So, they told me, and I didn’t find out until the day of, that Akers was announcing our pick in the second round. So after we trade out [of the first round], I’m coming in on Friday morning, and I called David, and I’m like giving him some bullet points. Like, I think I know what I’m doing, right? I’m like, ‘Dave, man, we need fire, man. We need passion. We’re drafting a guy in Dallas.’ And he’s like, ‘I got it, Howie. I got it.’ And I’m kind of going, he’s just yes-ing me, like most people do, so I’m used to it.

And he comes out with a rant that’s legendary. Legendary! I call him the next day and I just apologize. I go, ‘I’m sorry, man. I didn’t even think of some of the lines that you were coming up with.’ I mean, it was so beautiful, so unbelievable, we were all going crazy. And he goes, ‘Well, I feel bad, I was yelling.’ I go ‘The yelling was the good part about it! I mean, you’re in Dallas and you’re yelling at them, bro! If you think you were a hero for being a kicker, this is forever!’
