If you think Garrett as an OC had the ability to trump a Jerry decision in the war room and pick say an OL over say a Jason Williams, then you're delusional. He may have input as to what personnel are brought in on offense, like Risen Star is saying, and likely more input since he's been HC. But full autonomy would mean he's got personnel control. No way he has control. I know Jerry's own quotes refute that idea.
Jerry said this in his radio interview, that Wade had nothing to do with the offense and that Garrett had full autonomy over the offensive side of the ball for the past 6 seasons.
Now you can choose to not belive this, but the guy signing the checks sure believes this.
