Google Relevancy Doomed without Matt Cutts?

Matt Cutts went on a very extended vacation and some people feel that the Google search results are suffering big time since he left. A new featured WebmasterWorld thread was subtitled by a WebmasterWorld administrator;

We continued with this months Data Center saga: "Matt Cutts goes on vacation. Is it any wonder some problems pop up in the index?"

Ouch!

What is a bit interesting, is to look back at our what-if-scenario about What If Matt Cutts Left Google?

I believe my answers to the question seem right on target. My question is, is Adam Lasnik up to the job? Years and years of experience, Matt has accrued over the years. Matt invented his role, it is ingrained into his role at Google. Can someone else pick up in his place? I do not know. I certainly hope so.

Has the Google results suffered since Matt Cutts left? If so, is it a direct result of Matt not being available to keep a tab on what is going on in the SEO community?
