Check out this old news story from when the Chiefs fired Marv Levy:Pete Carroll
This is going to be the biggest blow Payton could create based on what he had. That’s not something easily replaced. He didn’t have a fixed way of doing things or an ego when it came to game plans where he forced things. There is also a reason we could usually pull thru in the 2nd half. He could see what was there to take.Payton is the offensive genius not Carmichael, so I have questions in terms of his ability to create an offensive philosophy and calling old Sean Payton plays dies not make you an OC.
Payton formulates an offense, can CarMicheal do that? Payton has visions for players, does Carmichael have an eye for talent like that?
