But the bigger picture you have to look at is that play calling is just a small part of what a coach has to do. He has to manage every aspect of the team get the right players into the right positions to excell. He has to put the other coaches in positions to suceed. He has to help pick the players to play on the team. Keep those players motivated and inspired. Deal with the media. No when to have walk throughs all week during the week instead of normal practices. There are to many different aspects to even list.
Gary is doing all that and winning. The last two weeks he hasn't even had that great defense to help his team out but somehow he just keeps on winning. He had injuries to deal with but he still somehow keeps them playing hard and winning. He doesn't even use most of the high draft picks on his offense. He usually lets the defense get all the goodies on draft day. Yet he takes these mid rounders and leftovers from other teams and somehow has one of the top offenses in the league. And, they keep winning. Do you see a common denominator I'm getting at. This team is winning. My vote is to keep our 10 and 1 coach. I like our chances.
Somebody rep this guy for me.
