Essentially, Garrett is providing this team with a structure that promotes consistency from the players. Win, lose or draw...Garrett is enforcing players to practice mentally and physically with consistency, game in and game out.
The problem he said with Wade is that if the team won, no matter how sloppy it looked all that mattered was that we won. Thus, we would get inconsistent play, 44-6 blowouts, teams that would quit easily, teams that couldn't handle success, etc.
The problem is that with Wade he brought in a lot of players with this inconsistent, 'all that matters is we won' mentality and Garrett is weeding these players out. But with the salary cap and roster limits, it takes a while in order to do so. And if you can turn a player around instead of having to replace him, you are better off in the end.
It was far more passionate then I am presenting it. And I'm sure I'm leaving some things out that I can't recall. But, it did give me confidence in Garrett.
I still think he needs to give up the offense to somebody like a Cam Cameron or Callahan. But, I think once we get a few more of his type of players in the fold, we'll be in really good shape.
