It's a combination. Talent is the issue because we only have 3 guys (JJo, KJax, DJ) who can man up consistently. Coaching is the issue because we man up across the board despite only having 3 guys who can do it.
Brice McCain not being able to cover grass is a talent issue. Brice McCain being asked to man up a slot WR 20 times a game is a coaching issue.
Would Wade's scheme be better with more talent? Yes. But you could say that about any scheme. The problem is we don't have that talent and he has shown no ability to adjust to that fact.
