Combine that with the fact that as an organization we are making playcalling changes...
What in the heck do you want people to conclude?
There is an art to playcalling. It's why Norv Turner will have a job in the NFL as long as he wants one - because he's got a knack for timing and is regarded as one of the finest playcallers in the league.
The fact that it's a simplistic explanation doesn't make it untrue. It also doesn't mean we don't have other very serious problems.

I am just a reductionist and put little to no stock in gross generalizations.
Was something wrong? Sure, that is obvious but stuff like "we can safely infer that something is wrong with our coaching" just sounds like throwing crap against the wall in a closed-minded way and "every sign in the universe points to Garrett as an incompetent playcaller/gameplanner/whathaveyou" just sounds like a butthurt extension of that to me.
I don't think it's an unfair standard to qualify assertions with something of quality and your 'deductions' hardly meet that standard. It's obviously heavy on emotion and generalization and short on empirical proof. You call others out on this all the time.
