Stop and Smell the Rose(man)s…

Philadelphia Eagles GM Howie Roseman pulled off a blockbuster trade with the Cleveland Browns yesterday to get a “franchise Quarterback”, but Roseman is not even sure who they will draft because the L.A. Rams have the overall first round draft pick.

In addition, Roseman has completely contradicted himself with comments he made in 2015 before the draft regarding trading up for Marcus Mariota:

“The history of trading up for one player, when you look at those trades, isn’t good for the team trading up and putting a lot of resources into it.”

It is just another lesson to be careful what you say (or write) and who you say it to or your words could very well come back to bite you.

Good luck Mr. Roseman. I hope your strategy works out for the Eagles, because if not your previous comments will surely condemn you.

Rogers Laundry List is Never Complete

I heard an inspiring interview on The Jim Rome Radio Show yesterday, where Rome interviewed new San Francisco 49ers WR Eric Rodgers (interview link).

MMQB’s Robert Klemko, provides additional insights on Rogers journey from high school to the NFL (article link).

To me, Rogers story conveys that it doesn’t matter where you start, but how you approach your life that makes the difference.

I’ll be cheering for Rogers when the NFL season kicks off!
