We wrap up the July edition of Philadelphia Eagles approval polls here on Bleeding Green Nation with Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Lurie. Don't forget to vote in the head coach Chip Kelly approval poll from Monday, the defensive coordinator Bill Davis approval poll from Tuesday, and the general manager Howie Roseman approval poll from Wednessday if you missed out on those.
From this poll, I'm going to revisit what I wrote about Lurie back in May when a Rotoworld list ranked him as the second best owner in the NFL.
As revealed in a recent Football Perspective post, the 2000s Eagles were one of the best teams to never win a championship. Winning a championship requires a little luck (or maybe a lot if you consider the New York Giants) and the Eagles just haven't had that type of good fortune yet. What is in the Eagles control is their decision-making process. It's that type of process which has been successful at the macro-level. What makes Lurie a great owner is that he only seems to involve himself in the major decisions (coaching hires, etc.) while trusting his subordinates (Chip Kelly, Howie Roseman) to do their jobs. A contrast of this style would be owners who often get too involved. Look no further than some other NFC East team owners to see what I mean.
So, do you approve of the job Jeffrey Lurie is doing as the Chairman and CEO of the Philadelphia Eagles? Vote now in the poll below and leave your thoughts in the comments.
