He was relieved of draft power for the 2008 draft in which the team got as much talent in that draft as the previous 5 that Carl ran.
Carl was propped up by a really good coach that couldnt ever win the big game. Marty turned teams around everywhere he has been.
He wasn't relieved of all draft power. He collaborated a lot more with the head coach than he did in the past and Kuharick, but Peterson was still heavily involved. This isn't from me, this is from a guy who I used to talk to that was involved in the FO.
Actually, Herm's first draft, was the same way with Tamba. A lot was made that Carl stepped down from that 08 draft, but that's just not true. He gave more responsibility to others, but he was involved heavily.
