"That's what great players do, and we have a lot of great players around him, and that brings out the best in everybody. It really does help. It helps us, plus we're not very big, so spreading the field helps us out a lot. Get out of the phone booth. That's what we're looking to do."
The field wasn't so stretched for the Patriots without Switzer.
"They really missed that when I was out," Switzer said, "because when I'm in there I draw a lot of attention and a lot of other guys, they're in space, and we got a lot of guys who can do a lot of things in space."
In addition to Switzer, running back Jacob Jackson carried five times for 94 yards and two touchdowns. The pass offense also clicked as Trever Bell threw three touchdowns to three different receivers.
GW scored on its first six offensive possessions, with each drive taking five plays or fewer.
For Switzer, he said it felt great to contribute to that success, because watching from the sidelines was miserable.
"It felt knives were going into my stomach," Switzer said.
"I tried to do my best to support them and cheer them on, but I'll tell them I hated watching them play, because that's not (any) fun, so hopefully I can stay healthy. I'm 100 percent, so we got that out of the way."
Back on the field, Switzer's once again the one driving knives into the opposition's defense.
That's just the familiar position Switzer and GW prefer.
"I'm back and we'll just take it day-by-day," Switzer said.
