2017 Player Reviews: # 36 Jeff Garlett

Recommended Posts

FREAKISH

Jeff Garlett had a great season highlighted by his lightning speed and some freakish goals. He must have been close to All Australian selection although his form tapered off a little right at the end.

Close to a career best year and would've been close to filling a forward pocket in the final All-Australian team. Fantastic response after a fairly mixed 2016.

21 games, 42.28 goals is a great result...but would it be selfish to want it to be 21 games, 55.15 goals?

some of his misses in front are inexplicable - his set shot work needs a lot of work

love his ability to outbody bigger defenders and use his footballing 'nous' to control the space around the drop of the ball and put himself in an advantageous position to make the most of his opportunity

his football definitely became more subdued as a result of off-field circumstances, but he still looked threatening

he's a massively important part of our forward line

Thought his set shots this year we're a vast improvement on last year.  42.28 is pretty good really.

If I recall correctly a bad and particularly critical exception to his steadiness in front of goal was the final round against the Pies.  Missed at least one, if not more set shots that he would have gobbled up earlier in the season... was not alone in that though.

Gee if he only had a little helper to go along with him, we would be unstoppable.

ANB. No surprise that Nibbler's career best season coincided with Garrett's best season for us.
