Coaching, our transition game, the PP, and our prospect system depth are more complicated issues. And even then everything but our system depth could be dramatically improved in one season (though our coaching won't be and will continue to hold our roster back).
Agreed. Put it this way--I actually do agree with Foppa that if Sherman makes the right moves this team will be a force. My point of contention is that I just don't think that will happen under Sherman, and moreover, it won't happen under the stifling, suffocating presence of Lacroix.
