Now that we’ve finished our Eagles position review, coaching staff, and front office performance series, let’s turn our attention to Philadelphia’s ownership. Today we’ll be evaluating Eagles chairman and chief executive officer Jeffrey Lurie.
REVIEW: Lurie made sure to lock up his Super Bowl winning head coach and de facto general manager combo by announcing contract extensions for Doug Pedrson and Howie Roseman back in August 2018. Both Pederson and Roseman are signed through the 2022 NFL season. Lurie held a surprise press conference after the extensions in which he called the Eagles “terrifically positioned” to repeat as Super Bowl champions. Of course, there was no repeat, but Philly still finished the 2018 season strong. The Eagles weren’t that far away from making a second straight appearance in the NFC Championship Game.
OUTLOOK: Lurie has built a strong foundation for success. The Eagles have one of the best head coaches in the league in Pederson, the 2017 NFL Executive of the Year in Roseman, and a franchise quarterback in Carson Wentz. Fans should be in no rush to want to see Lurie move on from his role as the Eagles’ owner.
Jeffrey Lurie: Stay or go?
