I don't see a single player on our roster they'd want to fit into that mould, other than a guy like Horcoff or MPS.
No system, passive gameplay, horrible bench management (not necessarily tonight but usually), unprepared etc.
And you'll see in the postgame presser when he talks about how he was content with the effort and they are headed in the right direct. Always Mr. Positive that Krueger.
The reality is that this is Tambellini's fault for hiring the wrong coaches time after time and for failing to address team needs but it also goes back to bringing in the wrong coaches. From the outdated dinosaur to the MacT clone to the Renney clone.
I also blame Katz for being content with this and for the constant rewarding of failure from KLowe being fired then promoted to MacT being fired then come back in a promoted role to an assistant coach of 2 last placed teams being promoted to head coach. Hell, even throw in Howson who was fired elsewhere only to be hired here. No accountability whatsoever.
