I dont get the hate for Carmichael ... when he stepped in he was great. Payton talked about turning play calling over last season as well.

In 2012, without Payton, Carmichael's offense was ranked #2 in yards and #3 in points.

It was Spag's defense that failed.

Carmichael did great.

He did a fine job. I wouldn't mind seeing what happens. Its not like Payton wouldn't step in if he needed to. It was taken out of context though.

Re: Report: Saints' Sean Payton may give up play-calling duties this season

Is it such a slow news day that NFL.com must create fabricated stories to get clicks? I read the remarks before the article was written and it didn't even cross my mind that Payton was hinting at relinquishing play calling duties. Not to say he won't but that article takes a huge leap. True journalism is dead in America.

Not quite sure what your definition of balance is but:
2009 Saints:
544 - pass
468 - run

2011 Saints
662 - pass
431 - run

2012 Saints
671 - pass
370 - run

2013 Saints
651 - pass
391 - run

I believe Carmichael likes much more of a passing attack than a balanced attack. 2009 Superbowl champs were much more balanced
