I don't think its about as to who calls plays, but more about what plays are being called and when, for me anyways. I don't care who calls them, but I want to see better situational play-calling and Garrett is horrendous in that department.
I wanted to see him say "Bill will call the plays with minimal input from me". They need to alter the playbook or at least use the current one correctly.
I would feel more confident with anyone other than Jason handling the in-game calls. Today, we did not get a definitive answer that a lot were hoping for, including me.
Everyone has a plan, until they get hit.
