That was an excellent drive Garrett called right there. This is not the norm out of the gates and seeing Jones and Barber on the same drive, is a rarity. Nice to see it.
That's probably why he is doing it. You don't show everything that you do all season. Now that it's the end of the season you do stuff you normally don't do. Why? Because teams haven't seen it. THat's short term. Long term, if you make the playoffs, now teams have extra stuff to prepare, which allows you to continue using it, or go back to other stuff, leaving them to study and prepare for useless stuff. Breaking tendencies is very important.
Bleh...he should have been doing it all year, and he should have been playing Felix more all year long. Put your best players on the field. And mass protection...finally. How many times does Romo have to be pealed off the turf before we see some mass protection? Garrett has been far from perfect this season and it has really hindered our offense in a lot of ways this year. His red zone/goal line playcalling is still garbage to this day. It's nice to see some improvements in his playcalling the last few weeks, though.
That looked like a lead power with barber. That just a regular lead run. Either way good play call. From the 3 or so games I have been seeing except for that horrible quick handoff on the goal line stand, I don't see the issues with the playcall. I still wouldn't sleep on the Saints offense. Second half is when they usually go insane with points.
