And there it is, boys and girls. The torture is over and, sans trade down, the Eagles will select their first player in the first hour of the 2013 draft.

But what is immensely more important is who will be involved in that selection. Who will be the personnel man and who will be the HC?

For some incredibly demented reason I love this side of the game. Building the foundation of the house doesn't seem very sexy but if it's flawed the house is doomed. If it's built on solid granite it will have a much better chance of being a strong structure. The decision(s) Lurie is about to make will determine if he is a capable owner or if Ratboy Banner was the real brains behind the success the team has had.

Let the off-season games begin.
