I don't think there is any gameplan -- short of putting out a defense that starts 8 defensive linemen -- that will see Jax abandon the run and have Garrard throw that many times.
You'd be very surprised (as was I) how many times Garrard has
thrown 25+ this year.
Honestly, I thought that he probably hit that number for maybe
half his games (12). He actually went over it 8 times and in one other game, he threw it 24 times.
Regardless, I force him to make a play. How many big playoff games has he played in where he was forced to carry the offensive load? Exactly. This ain't the Texans or the Titans in some midseason matchup. It's the Pittsburgh Motherfucking Steelers...in
January. And, it also happens to be a team that your squad "out Steelered" a few weeks ago. We'll see if they can make lightning strike twice. If they can, much respek and they'll be the team I pull for for the remainder.
