How much power will Howie have ?

I sincerely hope that Lurie hires an actual GM and simply calls that GM the Vice President and puts him above Howie in the chain of command. Does this have any chance at happening, or is Howie the H.N.I.C. ?
For those of you that don't know what H.N.I.C. means, see the movie Lean On Me.

2nd check point - What kind of coach do we hire?
- If it's a Gruden type, then Howie does not have final say in personnel matters - GOOD OUTCOME.
- If it's some Coordinator or college coach, then Howie is still the man in charge - HORRIBLE OUTCOME.

But even if Roseman stays, surely Lurie isn't dumb enough to give him full reign over personnel decisions. It doesn't make any sense. Lurie stays out of personnel decisions for the most part when it comes to talent evaluation, why put a guy in charge of it with no more experience than him? Hell Lurie might as well just run the team himself if he did that, Howie is no more qualified than he is.
If Roseman stays, he will likely be promoted to team president and have control only over the salary cap negotiations similar to Joe Banner, and Lurie will hire a legitmate personnel General Manager as well as a new coach. At least, I hope so.

Well as Peter Parker would say, with great power comes great (ir)responsibility when it comes to the Eagles
