Carmichael doesn't run it either. And as far as being asked to throw it more, he shouldn't be. He's a professional but he's also a human being. When you throw 50+ time a game interceptions happen. They should have given him some help. He couldn't win the game all by himself and he shouldn't have to.

Cramicheal chooses plays like Family Guy writers choose topics for episodes.

I just wonder where they keep the dolphins...

The tone here is that Brees has more power than Goodell. Drew decides the plays, Drew decided how much he was going to be paid, Drew decided GW needed to go and picked Spags, Drew decided New Coke was a great idea.

No one wants to blame the people that actually make the decisions.

Re: Brees letting the team down

I honestly think alot of this is Pete Carmicheal. Marshal Faulk said it too..
Some people are going to be exposed and IMHO That is Pete Carmicheal. He's basically calling the shots and he just can't adjust. He abandons the running game way too early... He ask way to much of our quaterback with throwing 50+ a game. Drew had a horrile game vs the Falcons and the only option we had was to bench him?
Had Sean payton been there we all know the running game would have been there to open up play action. He would have settled Drew down and we could of won that game.

Let Carmicheal goto Boston or where ever it was he was offered a job. I'll go and be the offensive coordinator next year with Sean Paytonn.3 years from now I'll be considered a genius...

Its not just Pete James... Pete has a boss, Joe Vitt stands by and watches... Joe Vitt has a boss and that's Mickey Loomis who stands by and watches... basketball.

This is by design... Designed by Goodell and the league.

Re: Brees letting the team down

Carmichael became a rockstar last year Payton went down. Before that he the Mr Peepers looking guy that followed Payton around on the sidelines. When SP went down Carmichael was credited with calling the plays but Payton was in his ear during the game and setting up the game plan during the week. I think we forget sometimes what a magician Payton is.

Frankly THAT run was brilliant but for me too distracting. I so much wanted solid Saints football first.

And Colston took one last week that would have a "miracle" completion for both he and Brees if he could have held on
