That's too convenient for the Garrett haters and once again the goal posts moved in their quest to prove that Garrett is the problem.
I don't buy that either, but what I do think you saw last night was Garrett's same system finally working against a very meager defense. There is no doubt that Garrett's strategy of balance works in theory, but this is the first time since opening night it has worked in practice, and I remain unconvinced that it can work against better defenses with this personnel.
The OL was very good on the power left running play because the eagles are awful. If that play goes away, what happens then? We are back to shotgun and slinging 60 times in a game.
