I am still not sure that I believe that Bernard is NOT calling plays. Not that I don't believe Eli...but I don't remember seeing Gattuso with a play-card. Maybe I just haven't paid attention to that aspect.
It would seem odd that he is an Associate Head Coach and OC, yet doesn't have any in-game capacities.
In my opinion, they may be giving Bernard some cover with this story. If not, why did Gattuso blew up at him on that particular play...when the whole stadium was pissed and all of us at home were pissed.
Doesn't pass the smell test.
I do want to add one thing. Bernard seems like a helluva guy...a pretty solid coach...and he has been responsible for finding some of our best recruits. From my perspective, which is about as welcome and useful as a bad flu, he is an an important cog for the program, and maybe he has had some play calling handcuffs put on him given that we have young line and QB (and, now RB's). Maybe he loosens up now that the O is seemingly progressing.
