He's trying so hard to figure out what he's supposed to do and what is expected of him that it's causing him to make a lot of boneheaded decisions. If he's going to succeed, it's going to be playing a more "instinct" based game, and "defensive instincts" aren't included in his toolbox.

You could basically extrapolate all of the above to Craig Smith, as well.

It's kind of a shame, but it's nothing new. This is always how Trotz has run his teams.
exactly why he has to go.
