Is Garrett's Offense Too Complicated?
I wonder this when I see players constantly confused pre-snap, the same stupid false start penalties and other mistakes happening over and over. Delays getting the play in. Receivers not in sync with Romo.
Is the offense just too complicated? Are the players having to think too much? I saw this recently living here in Los Angeles. The Lakers fired Mike Brown, who was trying to install a very complex "Princeton offense". It was clear the players just weren't getting it and they admitted they were thinking too much on the court. The Lakers have clearly been playing better since firing Brown and have admitted they are playing much more "free". I feel our players may be thinking too much. Maybe too much is being asked of them? Garrett is clearly a smart guy. But he may not be able to relate to players the way they need to be related to. I get the impression from the outside looking in that he might treat everyone like they're on his intellectual level, rather than simplifying things and making the offense more "player friendly".
Or.. Maybe all our players are just idiots.
