I agree that injuries and performance on the OL have definitely impacted the team's performance. But Garrett's offenses, outside of 2007, have never been what I'd call dominant anyway I think you'll find my Garrett criticisms have been fairly benign compared to some. I've said all along that Garrett is still learning how to be a coach. I think he may have gotten his opportunity before he had all the on the job training he needed. He's probably wearing too many hats right now and is a little overwhelmed. However, penalties absolutely fall on the coach and are a huge issue. I'm not convinced the running of the play clock down all the time is really a strategy or actually an issue. And, I'm sure this is too vague for you, but has there been a game where the offense went out and asserted its will on the defense? Did something that caused them to radically alter their game plan? Continually target and exploit a weakness? And I do think more experienced coaching could have resulted in a better record this year. I think the team could have stole a couple of close ones that they lost (Baltimore, Atlanta) and been better prepared against teams like Chicago and Seattle. And most of these games are early in the season when the injuries hadn't gotten too far out of control. I think there are a lot of issues with the team right now. Garrett isn't the biggest one, but I also wouldn't give him an "A" for his coaching performance this year.
