Howie Roseman has gone Psycho on the NFL and Eagles fans have to love it. The NFL may want to test Rosemen for PED’s because he’s just crushing the competition.
I’m sorry I ever doubted Howie Roseman 2.0. The first go around was tough, but now, with Joe Douglas by his side, he’s resurrected better, stronger, smarter, and more aggressive than ever and there’s nothing not to like. 2.0 is just shredding through the league making shrewd trades and off-season signings and everything is coming up Howie!
On this glorious Halloween, Howie Roseman added Jay Ajayi for a stinkin’ 4th round pick from the Miami Dolphins. That’s not like trading with the Patriots where you have to worry about getting fleeced. This is the Miami Dolphins. The team Howie himself fleeced when he traded Kiko Alonso and Byron Maxwell (who was released last week) for the 8 overall pick a couple years ago, which he then flipped for the pick that landed Carson Wentz.
At 7-1 and the odds on favorite to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl Howie Roseman is moving all in. While Philadelphia fans have been sitting patiently waiting for the processes of the Sixers, Flyers, and Phillies to play out, Howie Roseman has turned around the Eagles in two years—2 FRIGGIN YEARS—and is stopping at nothing from getting to Minneapolis in a smart way.
Ajayi is better than any RB on the Eagles in every facet of the game. He’s a talented three-down back who is young, talented and cheap. He’s only due $1.7M over the next two years. Miami didn’t trade Ajayi because his skills have diminished. He was traded, as reported by the Miami Herald, for being a problem in the locker room and not buying into Adam Gase. Can you blame him for that?
Ajayi is still a good player and behind a good offensive line, he’ll do good work. The reason Ajayi was traded has to do with team culture and locker room chemistry and player buy-in. (Miami Herald)
It’s not even noon yet. Be sure that Howie and Joe Douglas are still out there trick or treating trying to steal some more treats from other NFL teams. GMs Beware!
Miami Dolphins fans feel like they got tricked and they’re probably right. It’s good to be on the treat side of these things. THANKS HOWIE! Happy Howieween!
To make your Halloween better, check out some of the comments by Dolphins fans on the Miami Herald’s site:
David Dain · If I was Ajayi, I’d be pretty bummed that all I was worth was a lousy 4th round pick. It’s a shame they had to move him for so little, since there are so many teams out there that could use a young, talented running back.Ken Lawrence · WTF – 4th rounder for a pro bowl running back who is only 24 years old – are Gase and the entire front office clueless or on coke like their OL coach – 4th rounder for him is embarrassing – what a joke the Dolphins are turning out to be. Let’s trade Landry for a 3rd rounder and a bag of peanuts!Shane Le Gresley – This is insanity unless it is the start of a complete rebuild, that means almost everyone goes. Now we have zero running game so this season is a throw away.
Jay Pao – This really reinforces how much sh-t this franchise sits in. It can’t pull itself out under Ross’ ownership…But to let go 2 of your top offensive weapons screams out that this young head coach is in over his head as well.
I love Wentz and I love Ajayi. I am really ready to move my focus and loyalties to Philly. They seem to have a plan that is working.Graciela Celaya Lleonart – Sorry to see Ajayi go, he can run the ball behind a good offensive line and I think he will do so in Philadelphia.
Scott Frommas –If your 2 best offensive players don’t buy into the system, then the problem is the system.Marcus Estes · Our offense is struggling so we get rid of 1 of our best offensive players? This dumb move had better get us someplace quick Gase or the city will turn against you next.
