ANd John Gruden was given a Pro Bowl filled team complete and handed to him. It took a little over a year for him to drive it into the ground.
Garrett has had to build a new Oline and deal with injuries. He deserves another year.
First off, Holmgren has pretty much won and Garrett is still an unknown.
Second, the bolded area makes me want to ask you if you do time travel. Because on this date of January 7, 2013, Garrett hasn't rebuilt squadush on the offensive line.
I'm not certain how I would feel about Holmgren coming. I haven't given it much thought. But if we're giving credit to Opie for something he hasn't done, then I think I'll give Holmgren credit for rebuilding the team to a Super Bowl level.
I mean since we're playing Fantasy Island.
