Pete "Stud" Carmichael, Jr.

The Lions' just hired Jim Caldwell as our new HC, but I'm not too optimistic about him, along with a lot of Lions' fans. Maybe Jim Caldwell will be a success, maybe not. But in the case that he isn't, I'd like to scout a very promising candidate.

Questions-

1. What exactly does OC Carmichael do? Sean Payton is one of the best Offensive minds in Football and calls the plays, whereas Drew Brees is probably a top 5 QB, and one of the most mature QB's in the game. Where does that leave Coach Carmichael? What are his duties?

2. Can he call plays? His long and impressive resume suggests that he knows how to run an Offense, but is he able to build, sustain and lead an Offense by himself? He walked into a dream situation and doesn't have the same tasks as other OC's.

3. What about leadership and other skills needed to be a HC? Over the past couple of years, Coach Carmichael has had a few interviews, but has been unable to land a gig. Do you believe that he has the necessary skills to lead a team?

4. What does Coach Carmichael's personality and behavior consistent of? Is he a players' coach like Pete Carroll? A hardass like Belichick? A little of both?

Any and all info, would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You-

Mordecai
