The New York Giants are somehow leading the Carolina Panthers late in the third quarter, but that hasn’t absolved offensive coordinator Jason Garrett from taking heat.
Garrett is operating without multiple starters on the offensive line and at the skill position spots, but his performance for much of today independent of those absences hasn’t been very good. He’s still often too vanilla.
Even when Garrett breaks out a well-designed trick play, he almost got quarterback Daniel Jones killed after Jones made a ridiculous one-handed catch.
Garrett calls plays like he took a life insurance policy out on Daniel Jones https://t.co/Yij8kl52z7

In addition to being the butt of jokes because of that play call, Garrett has been the target of fan ire for other reasons, including his overly conservative play calls on a failed goal line series early in the game.
Jason Garrett is a double agent for the Cowboys…. what a stupid play call https://t.co/YBzy1dy5qF

It's like Jason Garrett suddenly realized 2 pages of his playbook were stuck together, he separated them and called Philly Special and an option pitch. #Giants

Jason Garrett’s goal-line play calling is reason enough to get fired mid-season.#Giants

But Jason Garrett will call an inside run to Devontae Booker. https://t.co/SUVFN7XhVr

How do you keep the same personnel in for FOUR PLAYS IN A ROW? Fire Jason Garrett now. That is disgusting

Despite all of this, Garrett and the Giants are actually ahead 12-3 on the Panthers after three quarters. We’ll see if they can pull off their second win of the season.
