Well, I think it's pretty clear what they have wanted their identity to be, but it's backfired. They wanted to be a team built from the net out, but since 2010, Miller has regressed, RR has regressed, Myers has regressed, Leopold has regressed, etc. When you plan to build a team with a certain identity, and then the players you are counting on and have paid to implement this vision fall on their faces, it's easy to claim management had no vision.
