Garrett was the play caller up until the end of the 2013 season. Callahan was technically the OC but Garrett called the plays. He's never been a very good play caller in my opinion. Once Jerry/Stephen stripped him of that duty and made him a walk around coach he's been better. Having all Pro talent across the board on offense helps too.
Some do a good job of wearing both the HC and OC/DC hat on the sidelines. I agree with you. Garrett didn't. His value is more in the organization and management of the team on the field and delegating more specific roles and responsibilities to his coordinators. And - having better players allows him to do that much more efficiently.
Add to that the daily "Jerry Tap Dance" he has to manage with his boss and I give the dude plenty of credit. His biggest value beyond the "stack one good day on the next" process IMO is his relationship with Stephen and Will McClay. Those three seem to have turned into a nice working Team themselves.
Do we still feel the same way today? Couldn't resist, I had to bring back this discussion.
Only with the "Jerry Tap Dance" part...
