Lurie has a winning philosophy build on long term, baby-steps and growing talent and management inhouse. A powerhouse coordinator or HC with a dedicated player following of FA talent has a snow-ball's chance in hell of becoming the next HC.
Everything Lurie said is geared to an under-qualified but "talented" individual who may not even be a coordinator in the NFL--or may never have been in the NFL. Tasking Roseman and Smolenski to gather info and interest will get Lurie a broad collection of "talent". Whereas an NFL GM, would gather by experience, results in the NFL and talent to jump up in responsibility/authority.
Lurie is back at square 2; with Roseman approximating Banner of 1998...and looking for a guy who Lurie can mold into star coach. Lets note AR was NOTHING before Lurie but one of Holmgren dozen talented assistants. Lurie and Reid were well matched because they each have abundant patience.
Lurie's strategy doesn't work for me--so I am an unhappy fan.
And, Reid quickly appeared as a HC that could not get a bunch of high talent / high cost FA additions to jell. Lurie has been burn 2X by the FA route to success ( Rhodes & Reid eras). He likes the longer, steadier, slower path....which would accommodate a noob HC coming out of college and getting his teeth kicked in for 2 seasons,too.

Skip Bayless from ESPN says its best
The ultimate question a coach or GM of a struggling franchise must ask himself: Do we want to WIN?

>>jonny: After a torrid start in 2010 and taking the starter role away form Kolb, defenses started to get a bead on how to disrupt #7. In 2010, Vick went from playing like Superman to playing like an NFL average QB. As best as I can determine, most of Vick's performance issues were not physical--but--mental. Defenses were starting to find ways to pressure him that he wasn't expecting and that caused him to improvise and/or extend plays. The extending plays went for a big gain a mere handful of times; more often Vick was sacked, rushed, batted balls, or chased out-of bounds. The ODDS began to favor defenses. Vick was unable to evolve and get a grip on the defensive disguises that rival DCs threw at him. 2010 against the Packers was a close as Vick ever got to any success in Phlly. Anything after that was straight down hill. His errors exceed his big plays--the W-L record worsened...and thats was that. At only $16,000,000--or a tidy one million per game--I don't think Vick will start for any team in the NFL ever again.
