Paytons influence is beyond just play calling. If I told you, before the suspension, take any of the top coaches in the NFL away from their team for one year, would anyone say that the team would improve from their prior years record? I doubt it.
I hope Im wrong, but I just dont see us with a better record and/or play than last year. The head coach is there for a reason, and our head coach is on of the best in the game. You just dont replace him and expect things to stay the same or for that matter improve.
