The scheme is certainly a factor, as is the idea that some of our more talented players haven't worked out (Beason for example; imagine if he was playing like a 5-star DB and how valuable that would be for us). Also, the Team Talent Composite does not tell the whole story, as it does not show how your talent is allocated across your football team. You can have 4 4-star running backs and absolutely nothing at offensive line, and you'll lose a lot of football games because you can't open any holes. But your team talent composite will reflect a higher ranking than perhaps it should. So in addition to the busts and the scheme, this can also explain why we have a bad team. We have talent at certain positions, but we have huge holes at others. It seems our most glaring problems are in the defensive backfield and on the D-Line, whereas arguably we have more than we need at RB.
