Drew Brees needs to feel comfortable behind his offensive line and he also plays better when he and the offense can establish a positive rhythm. But that's not going to happen as long as Carmichael continues to call the plays. He is too conservative so no rhythm can be created. Also, some of the critical thinking just isn't there. For example, during the Rams game, why wasn't another RB or TE brought in sooner to help protect Brees? Who knows. I understand Payton is probably loaded on pain pills due to his injury (take a look at the Rams game when the camera paused on Payton for a good 5 seconds to see what I mean), but we need him to take over the play calling in order for us to get back on track! It's not going to happen without him. Food for thought...
