My point is that no way you would cut Garrett the slack you just cut Shanahan... well, maybe you would, but I can GUARANTEE a HUGE portion of this forum wouldn't. It would be fires and Garrett being hung in effigy
I would cut any coach some slack for playing their best players in a do or die game. Same as I credit RG for playing. That took guts. I'm a huge hockey fan (today was like xmass for me
) Those guys play through just about every thing. I guess I expect as much from football players.
RG knew the risk, more players should be like him. The kid wanted it.
More than Ponder did obviously.
