    Eagles roster makeover is encouraging, but no indicator of success

    Nick Fierro

    condensed :

    .......Now, the caveat.

    All these new faces and new personalities will take more than a full offseason and preseason and maybe even more than a full regular-season to fit together completely.

    History has taught us that, particularly when it comes to this team, but with every other franchise too.

    In 2016, the Eagles probably are looking at new starters at both guard and cornerback spots, wide receiver, running back, safety and outside linebacker. That's seven newbies alone, not counting Connor Barwin switching back from a 3-4 outside linebacker to an end and at least three new rotational defensive linemen and a new nickel corner joining the mix.

    And we haven't even talked yet about the NFL Draft, in which Roseman's track record is not nearly as good or trustworthy as it's been on the business side.

    Put it this way: In the last five years alone, the Eagles have been in similar positions twice in 2011 and last year. Each time, the massive changes backfired so spectacularly that they led to the firing of the head coach, although the Eagles let it fester for another full season under Andy Reid.

    This year is different only in that the head coach is new too, so there will presumably be more patience. But that could even make it worse. It likely will take the Eagles three more years minimum to find out if Pederson was the right hire and if restoring Roseman to power was the right thing to do.

    And if it turns out they were wrong, they'll be in a world of trouble like no fan alive has seen for this team.

    For now, they're not. The glass is half full.

    Which way the team goes depends on Roseman proving himself as a personnel man and Pederson proving himself as a head coach.

    Since that hasn't happened yet, now is no time to exhale.

    What's encouraging is that they are making good decisions. It may be a year or two to reap the benefits.
