Re: Question for the Forum:

Assuming that they (Brees & Carmichael) still gameplan the way they (Brees & Payton) did, I would think that Brees has a lot of input already into how they are going to run plays during the course of the game.

I don't know if taking the play calling responsibility away from the guy who's job it is, is really a good idea, even if we are taking about a limited number of these types of situations within the game.

The coordinator is removed from the actual game play and that gives him a certain advantage over a QB who's constantly engaged in the game and has to already think about several other things, so I'd keep it in Carmichael's hands.

One of the arguments for causing the Saints' offense to be less explosive than it was a year to go has been that Brees might have taken too much on his plate with the absence of Payton. While I'm not saying that this argument is right, I'd still err on the side of caution in adding to the responsibilities Brees already has.

That really bothered me. Even if Sproles catches that ball it would have still bothered me.

I thought the same thing -- I wondered if maybe the last play of last year's opener game was "inside our heads" down there -- that maybe Carmichael was feeling deja vu and was too spooked to try running it. It bothered me a lot. Because in my mind THAT'S the situation when you're SUPPOSED to run that same exact play again, with all the bad blood from a year ago, and this time you get a surge and make it work.
