The same thing could happen here eventually.
You're exactly right that's why they let him go and Marvin in the past couple of years even said not being able to coach Takeo in his prime was one of, if not his biggest, regrets during his tenure. I will agree that they made the correct move to start changing the culture, but I think everyone can agree that he's the exception in that he was allowed to leave, and not the rule, for the reason you mentioned.
I think Carson being a QB instead of a LB makes this a different situation from that standpoint. By all accounts, Marvin does want to move on from a player that clearly doesn't want to be here, but given Mikey's love for his QB's, I'll believe that will happen only when I see it.
