Eytan Shander: Joe Flacco signing does nothing to change Eagles' need to draft a quarterback

The Eagles made huge news on Tuesday with their latest signing. The news was not the actual human being who will be on the team come Week 1 of the regular season. No, in fact, it was the statement that was made by the team signing Joe Flacco in the first place.

Eytan Shander: Roseman, Eagles are boring us to death this offseason

Do you remember how excited you were when the Eagles landed Demarco Murray in the off-season (way back in 2015)? Now, you have the benefit of hindsight so no cheating. This was before we realized the head coach didn’t even watch tape on Murray before bringing him in, ultimately resulting in a now infamous plane ride home.

First Four betting guide: Making the most out of the NCAA Tournament 'play-in' games

I have a newfound appreciation for the First Four. I actually enjoy it. I’ve gone from loathing everything about it to truly looking forward to the start of the actual madness in March. It’s kind of funny when I look back at how being able to legally bet on a sporting event automatically changed my perspective.

Eytan Shander: Will Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie ever fire Howie Roseman?

The short answer is no. Why? Because you don’t fire your son. You may repurpose him, move him to the basement for a couple of years, maybe even give him a false sense of confidence, but no, you don’t fire him.

Eytan Shander: Doc Rivers, Daryl Morey showing how to take Sixers from rebuild to contenders

If you can’t beat ‘em, you lose as many games as possible, draft a couple of young stars, and once things start coming together you upgrade the staff. It’s the NBA, it’s what they do. It’s far from any indictment on the coach charged with tanking and then rebuilding, rather showing how vital this upgrade process is and why it truly works.

Eytan Shander: Don't blame Roseman for this Wentz debacle, blame Lurie

Can we please stop blaming Howie Roseman for all of this? It’s not his fault. He doesn’t write the checks.

Eytan Shander: Just get the Carson Wentz trade over with so we can take a season off

Just end this damn thing already. Stop the car, let me out. I’ll wait for you outside, just tell me how the movie ends.
