Garrett repeatedly falls on the sword for Jerry. He has to play poker every Sunday with no kings in the deck. He's handicapped by Jerry's gross mismanagement of the roster from 3+ years ago.
Garrett has done some dumb things, too, but he's working with a short stack as he tries to gradually fix it.
He's cooked, though, if he doesn't get to nine wins. Jerry needs a fall guy for next season's ticket sales.
