Garrett, the genius, might be a little too smart for his own britches.
Garrett never really was.Back in the day, Michael Irvin was definitely that kind of player. Everyone in the stadium knew the ball was going to him, but it didn't matter.
Sometimes, it's not such a great idea to spread the wealth around by taking what the offense give you. What Garrett doesn't understand is the rhythm players can get into when they have more opportunities. Romo is like that. He gets into groves and it really doesn't matter what the defense is doing.
Murray looks like that kind of player. Emmit Smith sure was. Bryant has the makings.
When players get in that kind of groove, defenses can get demoralized. They get demoralized because scheming doesn't work when players make plays.
Personally, I'd like to see Garrett turn the dogs loose a little more often. If he allowed his team to force their will on the other team, then the opportunities to attack an over-compensating defense would create more big plays.
You wonder too what it would do for Bryant's focus if Garrett forced the ball to him. He looks like a 10-catch, 150 yard guy. He looks like one of those guys that cornerbacks have nightmares about. Why not let him and Romo play catch?
After all, this is football, not chess.
