Yet it seems that with Collins in the game, Al Saunder (Sub-Chief Advance Pro Temperate of Offensive Considerations, or SCAPTOC) felt more comfortable with the playbook. Either that, or Gibbs fell asleep and an intern started calling the plays.
We've seen glimpses of the opened up offense, notably against Dallas. The biggest point proven? We need to open it up, and we can't wait till the season is over. Too late though..
And for Jason?
We can only hope he is healthy, as the odds of another stellar Collins performance ain't high.
But tonight, he looked like an all-star. And as Gumbel said with great emotion, for him, this was Collins' "best game of the century". And of the past decade as well.

Possible Ewing theory at play?
