In regards to the game that you are referencing, 49ers Vs Giants, Roman (and Harbs) signed off on a bad game plan to begin with. Harbs ADMITTED AS SUCH. Alex Smith (and this offense in general) is not good enough to overcome a bad game plan.
In the Cowboys case, there is no defense for the play call of going for a TD on 3rd and 1, with over a min left to play and having T.O.s. Just stupid. What is Garrett thinking?
Play calling makes a difference, and if you don't think so 49AllTheTime, then you are asserting that coaching changes (and different play calling philosophy) don't matter. If you think that, then you don't know football.
Thats like saying Singletary/Raye = Walsh/Shannahan or Walsh/Holmgren
So it sounds like you are saying JH/G Ro = singletary/raye ?
The same coaches who pulled AS out of a ditch when he was left for dead
I don't know how you arrive at that conclusion based on my post. You are the one asserting that play calling doesn't matter/does not significantly effect the game (IE Singletary's publically stated philosophy that it is ALL execution). Thats obviously not true. Play calling matters. State your case otherwise, because I'm willing to change my mind if you've got something.
For the record, JH/G Ro > Single/Raye (proof is in the pudding)
